Oh yes, home made. Cold Brewed. And with ice.
So easy to make, and the so tasteful, you'll get hooked.
Basically you need a heaping 1/2 cup ground coffee(the type you use for your morning hot brewed coffee) and 1 and 1/2 cups water.
Pick a jar with a fitting lid, place the ground coffee inside and then add the water.
Stir a bit, put the lid on and let it sit on your kitchen counter for at least 12 hours, or overnight.
Then use a sieve, cheese cloth, coffee filter or anything else you can think of to to strain the liquid.
You will probably end up with about 1 cup of coffee concentrate.
To prepare the ice coffee, mix equal parts of the concentrate and the water, sweeten it and add as much ice as you like.
I also added cream (liquid cream).
