  1. Place the coffee grounds into the bottom of a 34-ounce or larger French press.
  2. Pour cold water over coffee grounds. Stir with a wooden spoon or chopstick until incorporated, 10 to 15 seconds.
  3. Place the French press in the refrigerator for 12 to 24 hours.
  4. Press down on the French press to separate water from coffee grounds. Divide coffee among 2 glasses; top with ice.


  • Cook's Notes:
  • If you don't have a French press, you can use any kind of pitcher.
  • Use a fine strainer or paper coffee filter to separate the grounds from the water after cold brewing.
  • If coffee is too strong, dilute with cold water, milk, or cream to taste.

This is a very nice ratio of coffee to water. This is my favorite way to drink iced coffee. I did dilute it with half and half, but it is delicious on its own.
