Finally, after much jealousy and tales of delicious hot and iced coffee, I came to my senses and got a French press. And it does not disappoint.
But before I get to the iced coffee, let’s start with the ice cubes. I put raspberries in mine.
Once that was done, fill it up with water and freeze. I also made some ice cubes out of coffee, so that way my iced coffee wouldn’t be watered down.
Once the ice cubes are in the glass…
Fill it up with the delicious coffee your french press has been brewing in the fridge. For the coffee, I used this recipe from Food 52. Put coffee, cinnamon, and water in your french press. Let it sit overnight in the fridge and then press down in the morning and pour into your cup with berry and coffee ice cubes.
The raspberries add a lovely flavor and the coffee cubes keep it strong. Add milk or sweetened condensed milk as you like, and that’s it. The best iced coffee you can make at home.
I’ve been making hot coffee as well, with the same recipe (minus the ice cubes). It’s been amazing. Got any French press or coffee tips? Let me know!
