Introduction: Easy Cold Brewed Coffee
Pouring hot brewed coffee over ice is a sure way to get nasty watered-down iced coffee.
Refrigerating brewed coffee is hardly better.
The best method to achieve a great tasting ice coffee is cold brewing. All you need is a french press, cold water, and time.
I know some people say french presses are expensive, but I picked mine up for 15 bucks at Target, so go out and grab one.
The best part about this coffee is that you don't need hot or ice cold water to make it, room temp water works perfectly.

Step 1: Making the Coffee
For this I'm using a 1.1 quart French press, place 4 1/2 ounces coarsely ground coffee (Roughly 1 3/4 cup ) into the pitcher, pour a little over 3 cups of cold water to fill.
Place top on (but don't press the plunger down) let steep at room
temperature for at least 12 hours and up to 24. After the coffee grounds have steeped, gently press down on the plunger until the grounds reach the bottom of the pitcher.
Now transfer the strained coffee into a sealed bottle(keep those funky refrigerator flavors out).
Refrigerate until chilled, at least 2 hours or up to 5 days.
For each cup of iced coffee, dilute the cold brew with an equal amount of creamer, half-and-half, milk or water. (whatever you prefer) Sweeten with sugar, equal, splenda, or any flavored syrup and top with ice.
Sit back relax and enjoy smooth delicious cup of Cold brew iced coffee.
