I absolutely love coffee. Hot or cold but always sweet and creamy…
I know I can’t afford those iced lattes at the coffee shop though! I mean $4-7? Really?
That’s why I LOVE the cold brew kit from Coffee Sock Co.
A few moments of time and I have enough cold brewed coffee for my favorite iced coffees all week long!
Here’s the kit:
A beautiful half gallon jar (Don’t you just love that logo?) with an organic cotton coffee filter, your favorite coffee and a grinder if you use whole beans.
The first use takes a little more time as you have to prep your filter but it isn’t hard… the kit come with very detailed instructions.
Simply boil the filter in obviously, boiling water for five minutes, remove and let cool.
Place the filter inside your washed jar…
Fill the filter with two cups of your favorite ground coffee and bloom to start. Wet the ground thoroughly and let sit for 60 seconds. Fill the jar with cold water and twist the top, wrap the tie string around the neck a few times then push through the pretty glass bead to keep all that yummy coffee inside where it belongs.
Let it rest in your refrigerator overnight, remove the filter and set over the top of the jar to drain. Tada! Half a gallon of concentrated coffee for all your favorite coffee drinks!
My favorite recipe is to fill my single serving blender cup with ice, then add a half a cup of coffee concentrate, a spoonful of sugar, and my favorite flavored creamer or almond milk to the top. Blend well and top with whip cream. Just like the coffee shop for a fraction of the cost.
I also like it hot. I fill my favorite coffee mug half full of coffee concentrate, then add water to the top and heat it in the microwave or in a pan on the stove til hot, add sugar and creamer to taste. It’s wonderfully smooth, not at all bitter. I have found I can drink it like this without getting heartburn!
