Hello everyone, welcome to another episode
of Nathalie’s SnapChat Cooking Show! If you’re watching on Snapchat, thank you
so much for watching. And if you’re watching on YouTube, please

people wanna drink coffee, regardless of the season, and I’m assuming you all want your
iced coffee, right? Let’s face it, you wanna get your iced coffee
at Starbucks, Dunkin’ Donuts, Caffe Bene, or your local coffee shop, it’s gonna be dumb
expensive. You end up paying between two to four dollars
for basically ice in your drink. And the mistake that people make when they
wanna have their iced coffee is, they’ll take regular coffee which is hot, add ice, and
it ends up melting the ice. And you’ll end up with watered down coffee,
which is disgusting. The other thing that people might do is, say,
they brew their coffee, they let their coffee go cold, and they add ice in it. Sure, that might work, but by the time the
coffee gets cold it already tastes old, and no one likes that. So today I’m gonna show you how to make cold-brewed
coffee. It’s really easy to make and you can keep
it in your fridge for over a week and it’s not gonna taste cold. So let’s get started! Here are the ingredients. Coffee, water, and a french press. Easy. The easiest way to make this recipe is to
use a french press. Using a french press makes it easy to clean
up, but if you don’t have one you can easily use a bowl and you can strain the coffee grinds
with a cheese cloth. So this french press maker holds 34 ounces
of liquid. That would yield a little over four cups of
coffee. If this yields 34 ounces, keep in mind that
its’ not gonna be all liquid. There’s gonna be some coffee grinds that take
up a portion in the french press. Now let’s take a look inside the coffee. I just opened it and it smells amazing. Look at all that. So I have here my coffee grinder and I have
in the coffee grinder a little less than a cup of whole beans that I’m gonna grind down. I have it set to french press for grind. You want a coarse grind because the last thing
you want is for the coffee beans to seep through the filter. And let’s start grinding! This only grinds for twenty seconds, or else
the grinder will overheat, so I’m gonna press the button again. Of course, you can definitely skip this entire
step if you don’t wanna grind coffee, or if you already have ground coffee. This is my already ground coffee, if you notice
that it’s kind of coarsely ground and now i’m going to pour it in here. Next, I have uh, measured three and a half
cups of water and I’m going to pour this water into the french press. I apologize as I poured the water, it lost
focus. So you wanna closer look um, I’m taking a
spoon. With the spoon, I’m making sure that all of
the coffee grinds are wet so that it can fully infuse. Next, you put the lid on top, don’t push the
filter, just let it do it’s magic. Allow this to brew from twelve to twenty-four
hours. It’s best if you brew this at room temperature
’cause it’ll brew faster. And stay tuned tomorrow as I will um try this
coffee and see if it’s good. Who’s ready for coffee? So the first thing I do when I wake up is,
drink regular coffee, duh. But since my sister has to leave for work,
I’m gonna have to prepare her cold brew so she can sip it on her way to the train. So this coffee has been sitting here for almost
twenty hours, ’cause i left it to brew at 2. And now since Mel is preparing to go to work,
I am going to start it. So, I bought these at rite aid, they are under
ten dollars, you can get them on amazon as well. It’s obviously resuable, and the cool part
about the straw is, this thing uh doesn’t let, doesn’t fall out this. You’ll see. My sister doesn’t want sugar in her coffee
so it’s gonna be a lot easier to put this together. So here we go! Oh, hear all that ice cracking. And time to add the milk. Hard to do this one handed. Here’s your coffee. I love it. So, Mel missed the bus for this coffee, but
worth it. So anyway, thanks for watching!
