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.  :)

Iced Coffee with a French Press

Print Recipe




Add coffee grounds to bottom of French Press.


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


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


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


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.


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.


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).


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