Summer is the time for iced coffee! Though I’m not the biggest coffee fan, unless it is cream flavored coffee, I am intrigued by all the ways my boyfriend brews his cup of joe in the morning. Recently we picked up a cold brewing pour over for these hot summer months. Being a barista certainly helps in gathering all needed coffee making supplies, but I’m still more knowledgable on the tea side of things, not the coffee side.
Anyways. Cold brewing is essentially brewing a double batch of whatever coffee you so chose, but only using the normal amount of water. So, if your normal brew was 3 scoops coffee and 2 parts water, you’d want to do 6 scoops of coffee and 2 parts water. See what I mean? Then, you want equal parts coffee and ice. So you want your pitcher to be half filled with the coffee and then fill it the rest of the way up with ice! Normally when you get a cold brewer it will explain this to you and sometimes even bags of coffee will say it on the side! Just like tea, sometimes coffee beans have different amounts for a perfect cup! Anyways, since we just got this cold brewer, we haven’t tried many types but my boyfriend’s favorites so far are:
Kenya from Starbucks
Sumatra from Starbucks
(I mean we are both baristas at Starbucks, clearly we like Starbucks coffee)
We should probably branch out a little bit. Have any suggestions?? We’d love to hear them!
