You all know by now that I love trying new coffee and all the accessories that go with it. I am kind of late in the game with trying the popular cold brewed coffee all over the net but a few months ago I finally ordered some cheesecloth and made it. What can I say but that I instantly fell in love and I can hardly have any other coffee after I tried it. The coffee taste much stronger and more pure made this way. The only thing I hate is that you have to use so much ground coffee and have such a small amount of actual coffee in the end. It’s a 1-2 ratio with the grounds with the, yea that much. So with that being said you can make as much as you want to try it like I did just add 2 tablespoons of ground coffee for every 1 tablespoon of water.
And while we’re talking about coffee have and of you heard of the Bialleti Moka espresso stovetop maker? I have heard so many great things about it that I had to order one. I will let you know how that goes but hey it’s starting to cool off and I need a nice espresso to get me through it. What about home brewed coffees have you heard of that? I first read about it on this post over at The Foreign Native (awesome pictures right you can get the same look with my actions and curves here). After some research I realized that I had in fact had this coffee before. This is the how the Japanese make coffee remember when I had it here. It’s a really good cup of coffee and I think it’s really referred to as drip on coffee. Now where can I find this is all I can think about? Obsessed, yea probably!
I made some coffee cubes with takeout coffee I had from Dunkin Doughnuts and I just pop a few in fill the glass about 3/4 cup full and add milk and sugar.
2-1/2 quarts cold water
5 ounces ground coffee (Starbucks Blonde is my favorite for this)
1. In a pitcher add coffee ground and carefully pour water on top. Place in the refrigerator overnight. In the morning add a cheesecloth on top of another pitcher and carefully pour.
