Baby it's cold out there... in there... uh....

My newest obsession is cold-brewed coffee.

If you don't know what it is, Google it.

Basically it is 10 cups of water mixed with 1 pound of coffee, cover, and let sit for 12 hours.

Strain this sludge through a fine sieve but don't press on the grinds (makes it dusty) and then strain again through a paper filter. Store in the fridge in a glass container.

That's what I did anyway.

It makes this sort of coffee concentrate and I am totally addicted now. Something about this process makes it smoother tasting and a lot less acidic. I literally have to tape the fridge shut at night so I won't drink it absentmindedly at 10pm.

Because it is a concentrate, I don't use too much. Maybe one part concentrate, two parts water, some milk, and a little sugar.

Yumma yum yum!
