french press cold brew coffee

French-Pressed Cold-Brewed Coffee

French-Pressed Cold-Brewed Coffee. That's a mouthful  (...of delicious coffee, that is).

As an avid coffee drinker, my caffeination comes in seasons. In autumn I get a hazelnut or a vanilla latte. During the winter I'm all about that peppermint mocha. Springtime is still a back & forth, but summer was made for iced coffee. Since cold-press coffee is all the rage, I decided to try making a batch of my own this weekend. Um, it's delicious. & totally not acidic, which is nice. Plus I discovered that by using my french press I was able to make a huge batch with very little effort on my part. I'm definitely seeing a lot of cold-pressed coffee in my future. 

Make coffee overnight in your french press

The amount of water & coffee I used was based on the rather large size of my french press. If you want to make a smaller batch, cut the recipe in half.

Ingredients // 
  • 3/4 cups ground coffee 
  • 4 cups cold water 
Directions // 
  1. Pour coffee grounds into bottom of french press. 
  2. Slowly add cold water.
  3. Stir thoroughly, leaving no pockets of dry coffee grounds.
  4. Let sit in the refrigerator overnight (or for at least 10 hours).
  5. Press the filter on the french press until all coffee is filtered. Pour into a separate container & store what you don't drink in the fridge. For extra smooth coffee, run through french press a second time. 
I like my coffee with a little bit of cream in it, & this coffee is definitely good over ice. Later in the week I'm planning on making some flavored syrups to really up my in-home coffee game. Maybe I'll finally be able to reel in my addiction to coffeehouses.
