If you have ever tasted an iced coffee at Starbucks, Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf or another great coffee, you know the result is a delicious drink that is not diluted and that is too strong! The key to a great iced coffee drink is to ensure that the coffee is strong enough. I think using darker coffee is the key to a successful drink. My personal favorite is to use something like an espresso roast or a good dark Spanish roast. A Vienna roast or French roast can also do well as they have bittersweet flavor for them with low acidity.
The next step is to prepare those beautiful dark roasted beans. I think there are two methods to prepare a strong pot of coffee. The first is the quick and easy way, to prepare a pot of coffee stronger than usual. Use about three times more coffee than you normally would and make a cup of coffee. Once the coffee has cooled to room temperature, you can put it in the refrigerator to cool completely.
The second method is my favorite and preferred method. This is to soak the coffee in the water overnight. You ground a lot of your favorite beans in a search field. Once you have done this, you simply want to add the soil to the water. Stir the mixture and leave it on the counter overnight in the jug. In the morning, strain the coffee mixture with the use of a filter and gauze in a new jar. You can then have the coffee strained and let it out in the refrigerator for when you want a delicious drink of iced coffee.
Then you can simply drink with ice or add whatever you want. Some ideas would be milk or cream, sugar or plain syrup and my favorite addition is a little condensed milk.
