Take it Slow Sunday | “Japanese” Iced Coffee

25 Mar

 

I’ve never liked waiting but as an adult, I’ve grown to appreciate that really amazing things in life take time.

It’s true. Jess and I met a little bit later in life and I’m finally at a stage in my life where I have many “I can’t believe I get paid to do this” moments. Though when it comes to most things (like standing in the grocery line or walking behind a very slow walker), patience is on my list of improvement areas…but when it comes to coffee, I’m happy to wait.

It’s still March, but the weirdly warm weather has spurred blooming trees, chirping birds, porch parties and my daily craving for iced coffee.

Jess discovered this brewing technique shared by Erin Meister, a Counter Culture Coffee barista trainer, a few years ago and it’s still our favorite way to make iced coffee. It’s also very economical. (Double yay!)

Note: We make it exactly as above but use a 10-cup Chemex & a folded Chemex filter that we dampen under the faucet (to diminish any flavors that the dry paper filter might impart to the delicious coffee) before adding the ground coffee & pouring the water over.
