How do you take your coffee? I like mine iced (yes, even in the winter months!) with flavored syrup and a little half-and-half! I make cold-pressed coffee on Sunday so it’s ready for me all week long. What is cold-press coffee you ask? Cold-press coffee is a way of making more concentrated coffee to keep in your fridge. It’s super easy to make and all you need is ground coffee and water. The instructions are posted below. This syrup is perfect for your morning coffee, however you prefer to drink it. It has just enough spice to make you feel cozy on these cool fall mornings.
Pumpkin Spiced Iced Coffee
8 oz. Cold-Press Coffee
4 tsp. half and half
3 tsp. Pumpkin Spice Syrup
In your favorite glass add the ice, coffee, half and half and syrup. Mix until combined. Enjoy!
8 oz. of your favorite coffee, ground
2 Quarts Cold Water
In a large bowl add the water and coffee. Stir until combined. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and let the mixture set for 6-8 hours. The longer you let the mixture set the stronger your coffee will be.
Using a fine mesh strainer and 2 layers or cheese cloth (you can also you a coffee filter). Strain the coffee mixture into a large bowl or pitcher. Chill.
