Like Cold Coffee? Try Cold Brewed Coffee

You guys seemed pretty excited when I shared a simple tip to keep your iced coffee from getting watered down. Well, if you thought that one was good, here's one that the folks at Seattle's Best Coffee emailed to me. Instead of brewing their coffee like normal, they cold brew it overnight, resulting in an iced coffee that can stay fresh for up to seven days.

So what is cold brewing? It's essentially letting coffee grounds soak in room temperature overnight. You'll need a cold brew concentrator, or you could rig one up yourself with some jars and filters. If you're not interested in going the diy route, the Toddy Maker Cold Brew Coffee System is available for $28.

And if cold brew sounds too complicated (although it looks really quite simple), you can always brew up a batch of coffee, bring it to room temperature and then refrigerate to use the next day.

If you'd like to learn more about cold brewing, here's a step by step tutorial.

These are great! Just so you know, coffee made in a toddy maker tastes a little different than regular coffee. It tends to be a little smoother and less bitter, in my opinion. I used to work at a coffee shop where we used this cold brewed coffee more like shots of espresso, adding them to milk and flavors. It's soooo good!

These are great. You can even add a litte water to the concentrate and heat it up fo a good cup of hot coffee!

I was just asking my friend today how you make iced coffee. This is something I could really invest in. I like my coffee better iced than warm.

My husband would probably love this. He loves iced coffee, but usually from Dunkin Donuts. :)

Interesting. Although I am not a coffee drinker, I do enjoy the aroma of a coffee pot that is piping hot. I wonder if this method has that coffee fragrance?
