While I was busy 'pinning' things this week on Pinterest I ran across a recipe for iced coffee that caught my eye. I am a huge fan of cold brewed iced coffee and am always open for a new variation. I usually brew it with just coffee grounds then add vanilla Torani syrup when I'm ready to drink. This recipe has you add brown sugar and cinnamon to the coffee grounds. Sounded interesting enough to try.
The original recipe can be found on Food 52.
Here's what you need:
2/3 cups ground coffee
3 cups water
1 tsp cinnamon
3 T dark brown sugar
Put everything in a quart jar and stir.
Cover and refrigerate overnight.
The next day, pour coffee through a fine mesh strainer.
I use a reusable coffee filter (pictured below). This step takes a little time. I've found that stirring the coffee in the filter helps it strain a little quicker and it's also helpful to remove the grounds before pouring more coffee through.
After the coffee has been strained, fill a glass with ice and pour in coffee until glass is 3/4 full.
Then add milk or cream to taste.
This is the best iced coffee I've ever had. It's amazing! I've made several batches this week and have enjoyed every sip.
