Cold Brew Iced Coffee Recipe
I’ve been meaning to post this Mexican iced coffee for a while now but better late than never. This recipe is cold brew iced coffee which means that it is brewed in cold or room temperature water for 8-12 hours and then strained.
Cold brew is my favorite type of coffee as it is less acidic than regular coffee which means it’s a lot easier on my sensitive stomach.
If you have stomach issues but also love coffee then this recipe is for you!
Cold brew coffee is extremely easy to make. The most important ingredient apart from the coffee is time! So you need to plan ahead.
All you have to is add 1/2 cup of coffee, 1 Mexican cinnamon stick, 2 whole cloves, and 3 cups of water to a container or bowl and stir well. Cover the container and let steep anywhere from 8-12 hours.
Some people let theirs steep for up to 24 hours. I usually only do 8 hours. I do not like my coffee very strong so eight hours is perfect for me however it is completely up to you.
After steeping the coffee grounds they need to be strained. I use a french press but if you don’t have one don’t worry! You can also use a mesh strainer and a cheesecloth. I would have never bought a french press if I had known that.
Although I do love coffee I try not to drink too much. See I have really bad anxiety and too much coffee makes it ten times worse.
Therefore I usually cut my coffee with water and add milk. This way I get to have my coffee fix but not feel like my heart is going to jump out of my chest.
Try this delicious Mexican iced coffee before the Summer is over. I know you’ll love it! Be back soon!
