Cold Brew Iced Latte

What’s Cooking in Gail’s Kitchen? Food With Soul: Cold Brew Iced Latte! Ever wonder why coffee tastes so much better at the local coffeehouse than at home? Know how you can duplicate that incredible brew at home, especially if it’s iced? Well, for starters, go back to that coffeehouse and buy a pound of the brand they use. If you don’t own a coffee grinder, no worries, they will coarsely grind it as a complimentary favor to you. (Plus it gives you, yet another, reason to buy a to-go beverage to sip on while you wait. I discovered I’m crazy about a Colombian brand with medium notes of milk chocolate and orange grown in. When I was preparing for Hurricane Ian, I made a batch of cold brew to have on hand in case the power went out. I told you earlier….. coffee makes me happy.

COLD BREW ICED LATTE

Ingredients:

1 cup whole coffee beans

4 cups filtered water

Light Cream, to taste

Ice

Instructions:

Freshly grind the coffee beans on the coarse setting. Place the grounds in a quart-size jar or French press. Pour the water over the beans to saturate all the coffee grounds. As needed, use a spoon to gently stir the grounds, allowing them to be completely wet. Cover the cold brew and refrigerate it for 24 hours. Place a fine-mesh sieve over a large measuring bowl. Pour the coffee to completely strain it. Discard coffee grounds. To serve, fill a glass with ice. Add cold brew, desired sweetener, natural flavoring, or light cream to taste. Store cold brew in the refrigerator.
