Ice Coffee Concentrate Recipe:

Ingredients:
– 1 lb of coarse coffee grounds (I used the Guatemala coffee from Portland Roasting Coffee)
– 8 cups of water

Pour coffee grounds into a large glass jar. Pour in water and stir to make sure that all coffee grounds are wet. Cover and let sit overnight, but preferably for one day.

Strain the coffee grounds out by pouring the mixture through cheesecloth or coffee filters over another glass jar. You could also strain them by pouring the mixture into your French Press in small portions and saving the concentrate in another jar.

Seal the concentrate in a jar and place in the fridge to chill.

It will last for up to two weeks.

I love iced coffee! Another trick (to keep the coffee from diluting too much with ice) is to make ice cubes out of coffee as well. I usually make a couple of trays and then save them in a ziplock. I’ve actually used the leftovers from our normal coffee pot to do that. Just filling a little at a time and saving them. Great for summer!
