Ice Coffee from a French Press and cold brewed is my companion
some most afternoons. Last week I shared a printable expressing my love for coffee. You can check it out here. I was surprised at the number of requests for my recipe for French press cold brewed Ice Coffee this past week. So for the love of coffee I have snapped a few photos during the making of this last batch to share the process/recipe with my fellow coffee addicts enthusiasts. So without further adieu,
I give you the the Nectar of the Gods...
Mexican Ice Coffee
|We grind coffee in our kitchen. For this cold brew Ice Coffee I am looking for a coarse grind in the coffee.|
|I/3 cup coarse ground coffee beans, 1 Tablespoon brown sugar, 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon and 1 whole clove go into the bottom of my French Press. Fill with cold water, cover and put in fridge overnight or for 12 hours.|
|Take the French Press out of fridge, plunge the plunger to press grounds to bottom. Fill mug with ice cubes, yes I freeze leftover coffee so my Ice Coffee will not be diluted with water.|
|Now we must make our sweet cream. Combine one can of evaporated milk with one can of sweetened condensed milk. Set the Sweet Cream mixture a side for use with future Ice Coffee Mugs.|
|Combine 1/4 cup of our just made Sweet Cream with chocolate syrup.|
|chocolate flavored sweet cream mix|
I reduce some calories by cutting with milk mixed in after my first cup at "full" sweet cream.
|Add French Brewed coffee over ice cubes to about 1/2 full of your mug. Top with Chocolate flavored Sweet Cream you just made to fill your mug to the top.|
