Emphasis on 'simply' as well as 'delicious.'
I have mentioned this before, and had a request for the 'recipe.' Took me awhile, but finally, here it is.
sugar or sweetener
This is a 'cold brew' coffee. Which works for me, because I've never learned how to make coffee the conventional way...I don't drink hot coffee. I have read that cold brewing also cuts down on the acidity, so it has a smoother flavor.
First find a container to brew your coffee in. This is the one I like to use. I make as much as it will hold, but you can 'brew' as much or as little as you want. I place about 3 heaping Tablespoons of ground coffee in the bottom, and add about three cups of cold water. Stir gently, so that the grounds are wet through. Cover container, and place in the refrigerator overnight.
The next morning, place a coffee filter or cheese cloth over the top of another container pushing it down into the container, and hold in place with a rubber band. Pour the container of cold-brewed coffee through the filter into the second container. (I like to do this through a fine sieve to catch the majority of the grounds...it seems to go a little quicker.)
Once filtered, pour about a cup of the coffee into a tall glass.
Sweeten with sugar or artificial sweetener to your taste, and pour in milk...about an equal amount to the coffee in your glass or to your taste. (I use two envelopes Splenda sweetener and 1 cup fat-free milk.)
Stir well, and fill the glass with ice. Enjoy!
For the remaining filtered coffee, cover the container, and place it back in the refrigerator. It keeps well for a week or so, so for the next couple of mornings, you won't have to go through the brewing/filtering steps.
