|Getting my morning cup ready on the patio. |
Sweet, sweet cold brew!
Truth. Though some drink it for the caffeine, I just love the way good coffee, real coffee, tastes. At home, I start the process by grinding beans, boiling water in my favorite kettle, pouring the water into a Melitta Ready Set Joe brewer, and finish with a splash of almond milk. Away from home, especially if I'm camping, taking fresh grounds and using a Press-Bot is my favorite method.
But when summer rolls around, drinking something hot, even if it's coffee, can be downright uncomfortable. Iced coffee is a refreshing alternative to hot java and until recently, I never attempted to make it at home. I'd opt to find my iced coffee at a local coffee spot, and that isn't always ideal.
