French press - The secret to delicious iced coffee
The secret for making delicious iced coffee is to use cold water! Using hot coffee that has cooled will give your iced coffee a bitter taste because hot coffee becomes more bitter as it cools.
Directions for making iced coffee in a French press:
- Add one coffee scoop of coarsely ground coffee for each 4 ounces of cold water to your French press.
- Stir the mixture with a wooden or plastic spoon.
- Place the lid on your French press with the plunger fully extended.
- After the press sits for 12 hours, slowly push the plunger down.
Pour the coffee concentrate over ice and add the same amount of water--or to taste. Drink plain or add cold milk or cream. To maintain the flavor, use ice cubes made with the concentrate.
