ICED COFFEE ~ Detroit Style

I love iced coffee. I have become particularly focused on (some would say obsessed) creating the perfect iced coffee brew.

Here’s my version of perfection:

Cut a 5X5″ square of cheesecloth

Dump 1 cup of your favorite ground coffee into the center

Bring the corners of the cheesecloth together, twist and tie tightly with cotton thread/twine.

Fill a large glass container with 5-7 cups of cold purified water.

Place the cheesecloth pouch into the water. Let sit out on your counter or in your refrigerator overnight or for at least 8 hours.

Voila!

Keep in your refrigerator with the black gold for up to a month. Enjoy ice, cream, sugar or just plain, like me, for up to a month.

If you do not love strong coffee, use less coffee to water in your brew and take the cheesecloth out after the first “overnight” brew.

Cheers!
