To say we have a coffee addiction at our house is an understatement. Up until this year I just couldn't figure out an easy way to make iced coffee quickly. But this year it happened, and now I'm making this on a daily basis using the pour over method. All it takes is a few simple supplies and you are ready to go!
- 4 tablespoons of dark roast/espresso style coffee
- 10 ounces of water
- 2 cups of ice
Place your 2 cups of ice in your coffee tumbler and place the pour over coffee dripper on the top of the tumbler. Heat your 10 ounces of water until just boiling. Pour a small amount of water over your coffee grounds to just dampen them and wait 30 to 45 seconds to allow your coffee to bloom. After allowing your coffee to bloom, slowly pour the rest of the water over your coffee grounds and let it drip over your ice. Once all your water has dripped through your ICED coffee is immediately ready to drink!
We add some half and half to our iced coffee but I'm sure you can add a sugar syrup or flavored creamer to your preferred taste. Depending on the roast of coffee used the final product is comparable to a Dunkin or Starbucks iced coffee.
