Ingredients

White Scribbled Underline

Place the coffee grounds in a large food-safe container and add the cold water.  

Mix with a large spoon, then cover and allow to sit overnight at room temperature. 

– Strain the mixture into a clean container through a fine-mesh sieve that has been lined with two layers of cheesecloth or coffee filters. Discard the coffee grounds. Chill mixture until ready to use.

To make the iced coffee, fill a glass with ice and fill it two-thirds full of the chilled coffee concentrate.  

Sweeten as desired. (I made mine with 2 tablespoons sweetened condensed milk and an additional splash of half-and-half.) 

Strain the mixture into a clean container through a fine-mesh sieve that has been lined with two layers of cheesecloth or coffee filters.
