Most Delicious Iced Coffee in the World!



Awhile back I started making cold brewed coffee and it was, at the time, the best coffee ever. It is way smoother tasting and somehow less bitter (and easier on the tummy for those of you who have problems with that). Well boy was I in for a wild ride when I later discovered this recipe. I have never tasted anything so good, ever! I must warn you that this coffee is addicting... I have to ration it out and restrain myself from drinking all of it in one day (which I maybe did once and could barely see straight at the end of the day).  Also, cold brewed is wayyy more potent than other methods of making coffee.



Recipe: Iced Coffee (world's most delicious)

Ingredients: 
  • 2/3 cups of course ground coffee
  • 3 cups cold water
  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon 
 Directions:

I personally use this french press

 and this style of coffee grinder


  • Place all ingredients in a jar; stir and let sit covered in fridge overnight.  
  • The next day pour coffee into a french press (my preferred method!) or strainer (or the morning my french press broke, coffee filters taped to the top of a jar). Then pour the strained/pressed coffee back into your rinsed out jar for storage. 
  • Fill a glass with ice and pour coffee over. 
  • Add a splash of milk/cream if desired (and trust me, it's desired). I like to use this creamer, its wonderful.
Now stay tuned for an iced pumpkin latte version... (as soon as I locate those pictures)

  14. Oh wow, this sounds diviiiiine. I've recently been making cold brewed iced coffee with honey and cinnamon, but that brown sugar is intriguing me.

    Congrats on the new site design. It's very sweet and whimsical.

  16. Here's the verdict:

    The next morning, it was pretty awesome... but three days later, when I returned from my trip, it was the best ever! Obviously I had strained all the coffee out after I let it sit overnight, but something about letting it chill in there a bit longer made it seriously that much more amazing. That is, if you can resist for that long. :)

  17. Oh thank heavens for this wonderful post!! This coffee recipe is the only thing fueling my I-gotta-finish-this-homework-before-deadline sleepy eyes wide open. Thanks to this lovely recipe I can now stay awake although you were NOT kidding when you said it was absolutely divine and addicting!!

  18. I cant wait to try this! Especially that pumpkin one.

    ReplyDelete
  19. wow. I love coffee and work coffee, and this sounds like something I've gotta try.
    thank you for sharing the recipe!

  20. i don't get this. Do you used boiling water or just cold water? Cause with coffee making, i thought you're supposed to be using boiling water.

    Please let me know at rpn@mail.usf.edu

    Thanks

  21. Didn't u read Ryan? It specified COLD water. That's why you leave it overnight to allow the flavor to encompass the water. Heated water allows for this effect to take place much quicker. But then you would have hot coffee. Yuck!

    ReplyDelete
  22. And another idea - use coffee ice cubes (pour leftover coffee in ice cube trays and freeze), then when the ice melts it doesn't dilute the coffee. (We also use the coffee ice cubes in protein drinks in the blender for taste and thickness)

  23. I just posted the same recipe on my blog! It is seriously the most delicious iced coffee EVER! And yes, super addicting. Yikes!

    1. Just wondering if you take out the cinnamon on this one recipe and add pumpkin spice it should take care of that version......Hope that helps

  30. You should freeze left over coffee or fresh made in ice cube trays and then add to your iced drinks. No watered down iced coffees!!!

  31. does it have to be an air tight jar? or would say a plastic pitcher be alright (I know the risks of staining, but I don't have any jars on hand :( )

  36. I must try this. I love coffee but it does not like me at all. I wonder what difference the cold brew vs. the hot brew has on the stomach. Just the thought of these flavors melding together YUM

  37. Omg heaven in my mouth... I used 4 cups water and I cup coffee, 2 heaping spoonfuls of Splenda brown sugar and about a tsp of cinnamon. Then when it's ready to drink I mix it with creamer or milk or whatever I have and add 2 tsp of vanilla sugar free syrup. Omg the cinnamon and vanilla are ammmmmaaazzzziiiinnnggggg in my mouth... I want to drink this all day!
