DIY Iced Coffee

Three weeks later, and hello everyone!

Long time no speak.
I’m very excited to be sharing this post today since I have been badgered since the birth of my blog to write about coffee. Even though my blog is called Coffee and Sunday, I am not an expert at coffee whatsoever. I definitely couldn’t tell you about all the rich flavors of coffee or tell you the different espresso drinks you should try.  But one thing I really love is iced coffee. My go to drink is a venti iced coffee with 5 pumps of white mocha at Starbucks! It has the coffee kick, but with delicious sweetness embedded.

Ever since I started nursing school, I’ve been so sleep deprived. Usually I’ll result to getting my iced coffee from Starbucks as a morning pick me up, but I have classes at 8:00 A.M. sharp and have absolutely no time to wait in the long lines at Starbucks. As a result, I had to learn to make my own coffee. I have created an easy, 5 minute routine to making a delicious cup of iced coffee.

To start off, you will need: a kettle, a french press (fantastic one here), ground coffee of your choice and your choice of sweetener if you desire.

Follow these 6 simple steps for a perfect cup of iced coffee:

  1. Boil 5 – 6 cups of water.
  2. Add 6 tablespoons of your choice of grounded coffee into french press.
  3. Add the boiled water into the french press to one inch below the top of the press.
  4. Leave the mixture to sit for 24 hours in the fridge.
  5. Pull the press from the fridge, and push down all the way on the press.
  6. Pour your coffee into a cup of ice and add your choice of sweeter to taste, and enjoy!

Hopefully this was useful to my iced coffee lovers out there. Making your own coffee definitely saves a lot of time and money. I’d love to hear of any of your own coffee tips. Until next time!

    I enjoy cold brew coffee. My tummy likes it much better. I make it hot or cold, but I start with cold brew. This looks yummy. Making it at home saves a ton!!! Love your article and the view off your deck. How nice it must be to drink coffee from there! Have a lovely day! Koko❀
