If you want the caffeinated kick to the head that coffee provides, but you don't want to worry about scorching your tongue, then iced coffee is the way to go. When in the depths of a particularly deep caffeine binge I would opt for the iced stuff because I could drink it so much faster.
With this method, you can make a batch of concentrated coffee to make individual iced cups of coffee for the next several days. It's perfect for when you need a quick fix.
Step 1: Get the Stuff
1/2 pound of coffee ground for a French press
12 cup French press. I'm using Bodum's 12 cup press.
The 12 cups here are really 4-ounce cups. So the 12 "cups" is really the equivalent of 6 cups.
Take out the strainer and drop the grounds in.
If you don't have a French press, simply use any container and a method of straining the grounds out.
