3 Easy Ways To Make Iced Coffee

the days are getting hotter even here in
Portland which means it’s time for iced coffee after such a long break from the
practice we often find ourselves scrambling to remember how we even made
the stuff in the first place we’re certainly not looking to repeat the old
hot pot of coffee pour it over a container of ice it’s a rite of passage
but it’s behind us today I’ll be sharing our three favorite
ways to make iced coffee so you can start your summer right whether you want
to plan ahead or need coffee on short notice
first let’s do an iced espresso our jobs here at client four evolve around
helping people take their first steps into home espresso so it only felt right
to start with a simple iced espresso recipe one of the best things about
espresso is that it’s such a quick way to make super concentrated coffee aside
from your espresso setup all you’ll need is some good coffee a few ice cubes and
a glass we’re going to use case coffees Cascadia blend it’s a smooth bright and
lightly fruity African blend that’s perfect on ice because we’re gonna be
pouring this over ice I want to make sure it’s very concentrated so I can
control how diluted the end beverage is I’ll be pulling this shot at a
one-to-one ratio with a 20 gram dose of coffee so I want a yield of about 20
grams of liquid espresso I like this blend best when it’s pulled
around 28 seconds now that we have our shot we’ll just pour it over ice into
our glass I also recommend freezing the glass to offset some of the heat from
the espresso and prevent things from diluting too much if you prefer an iced
americano simply add a bit more water and more ice it’s good to keep things
concentrated but I also highly encourage trying different brew ratios as iced
espresso can bring out entirely new flavors from your coffee now let’s make
some cold brew massively popular and wonderfully low-maintenance cold brew is
an excellent way to ensure you have plenty of ice coffee am I making large
batches of concentrate our favorite way to make cold brew at clive is using hario’s filter-in bottle not only are they a great standalone solution for making
cold brew but they also serve as the perfect vessel for storage and serving
for our recipe we use 60 grams of coffee and 700 milliliters of water first we’ll
need to grind our coffee will want a relatively coarse grind similar to what
you’d use for French press not only will this work well for a long brew time but
it will also help us avoid getting lots of sediment pour those grounds into the
basket lock it into the lid and then fill it up with
700 milliliters of water or to this handy marker on the glass well let this
steep for 20 hours and then simply remove the basket at which point we’ll
have a fresh bottle of cold brew this stuff is relatively strong but whether
you’d like to keep it concentrated or dilute it with some water is a matter of
taste personally I find that once it’s poured over ice it’s just right last
let’s make an arrow press iced coffee if you’re dying for an iced coffee but
don’t have an espresso machine on hand nothing beats the speed and flavor of an
arrow press iced coffee since we’ll be brewing this hot we’ll pour it over ice
to account for that we’ll use half the normal amount of water and replace that
with an equal weight of ice though extra ice never hurts that way the coffee we
get will be cold and strong for this recipe I’ll be using 24 grams of coffee
ground medium fine 180 milliliters of water and 180 grams of ice I’m also
using Fellowes Prizmo attachment which will make this much easier you’ll start
by attaching the Prizmo to the arrow press the included metal filter works
fine but I like to throw in a paper filter for a cleaner cup now we’ll add
our 24 gram dose of coffee and set the AeroPress on top of our glass full of
ice once our water is up to about 200
degrees Fahrenheit we’ll begin pouring in half of it and
start our timer have 30 seconds give the mixture a stir to break the crust and
ensure that all the grounds are getting evenly saturated then add the rest of
the water I recommend placing the plunger gently on top to keep the
temperature inside a bit more stable at three-and-a-half to four minutes plunge
the AeroPress into your glass give your ice coffee a stir to make sure
everything is nice and cold add more ice or cream if you’d like and enjoy the air
press is super versatile so try playing with different recipes to find your
