    I had NO IDEA that there is such a thing as cold-brewed iced coffee. I drink 3 or 4 iced coffees a day during the summer (funny how I will restrict myself to a single hot coffee daily during the winter, but I live in denial when it comes to the iced variety…), so I had better get on this cold-brewed business!

    Fabulous! I love ice brewed coffee but could never figure out how to make the perfect cup! I can’t wait to try it after a nice meal of Ratatouille!

    I have a barista secret for you…
    An easy way to make cold brewed cold coffee is in a french press. Just grind your best coffee on french press then scoop 4 to 6 heaping tablespoons in to your press and add cold filtered water. Now here is the hard part:wait! You have to wait for 12 to 16 hours for full extraction of the coffee oils to happen. After that 16 hours push down on your press and pour yourself a cold cup of joe.

    That iced coffee recipe from the Times has *changed my summer life*. I used to sweat through my morning must-have cup here in the hot,hot Austin summer. I use Cafe du Monde coffee in the great-looking mustard yellow can.

    so very, very excited to try this iced coffee thing. mostly because I don’t own a coffee maker and perhaps I don’t need one for my summer obsession!
