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.
