Flash Brewing Organic Iced Coffee

A quick and easy way to make iced coffee at home is to brew coffee in your home brewer, replacing some of the water with ice. Make this “flash brew” over ice to instantly cool and preserve the coffee’s distinct profile.

WHAT YOU NEED: Whole Bean Coffee | Drip Coffee Machine | Ice Cubes | Scale

Step 1.

MEASURE: Measure coffee as you normally would for the amount you would like to yield.

Step 2.

GRIND: Grind coffee fresh to a medium drip consistency, similar to kosher salt.

Step 3.

PREPARE: Use a scale to weigh ½ of the total finished amount in ice. For example: Desired Yield- One 8 oz cup, weigh 4 oz of ice.

Step 4.

BREW: Brew hot coffee with half the amount of water you typically would. You’re making a strong coffee concentrate.

Step 5.

FINISH:Once brew cycle is done, add premeasured ice to hot coffee. Stir together to melt the ice and dilute the coffee. You will be left with a cool beverage that you can drink right away. Pour into a glass with more ice and enjoy!

Jim's notes:

Pro Tip: You can also use this process with any single brew method that you like. Try with chemex or a melitta for a quick and easy single serving of iced coffee.

Enjoy!
