How to Make Iced Coffee with a French Press tutorial

Hello, I’m Jess and I’m an Iced Coffee fanatic.  YEP…I’m addicted and I’m not ashamed to admit it.  :)  I love coffee and coffee flavored things, but I only drink my coffee iced.  :)

Out of all the ways to make Iced Coffee, I have found that making it with a French Press is the easiest and most delicious way.  I’ve never been a fan of cold brew and some think French Presses are difficult, but it’s honestly not if you follow some simple rules.  :)

Ingredients

Instructions

1

Add coffee grounds to bottom of French Press.

2

Depending on the size of your French press, you'll need to add about 1-2 tbsp of coffee grounds per 6 oz...so adjust accordingly.

3

Fill up Press slowly with boiling water; do leave AT LEAST 1" of space from the top of the glass.

4

Take a plastic spoon (ONLY a plastic spoon) and stir the grounds until you see the coffee foam at the top.

5

Remove the spoon (wash it) and let the "coffee" sit for 5-10 minutes; the longer you let it sit, the stronger it'll be.

6

When the "coffee" has sat for the a bit add your lid/plunger onto your press and gently press down on the plunger; this will push the grounds to the bottom, straining your coffee.

7

Slowly pour the coffee into your pitcher to save and refrigerate (you may have to repeat the above steps depending how larger your pitcher is).

8

Refrigerate for at least 6 hours; then you'll be ready to create your iced coffee!!
