Do you love iced coffee? Have you made your own home brewed iced coffee? Gloria decided that since it’s one of her favorite beverages, she needed to master the art of making it herself. She tried a number of recipes and methods with varying results, several of which she didn’t care for at all. After a few tries, she put together her own recipe that she loves.

This month, I’m sharing Gloria’s recipe and technique for making home brewed iced coffee. She had pinned several ideas, like this How to Make Your Own Cold Brew Coffee from Jen Around the World.
Home Brewed Iced Coffee Recipe
Making sure that you start with a rich, flavorful coffee is key to making home brewed iced coffee. These beans from the local Charleston Coffee Roasters make a great cup of coffee as well as a delicious iced coffee.
Once you’ve ground the beans, add a coffee filter drawstring bag to a large Mason jar.
Using a kitchen funnel helps to avoid messes! Just place the funnel into the bag and pour the ground coffee beans into the jar.
Pull the drawstring and drape the excess string over the outside of the jar.
Fill the jar with water and seal with the lid. Keeping the string outside of the jar will make it easier to remove the bag.
Gloria lets the brew sit for 36 hours. You can shorten that time, but if you want a full bodied taste, it’s best to be patient and give it time. Remove the filter from the jar and discard.
Add ice to a glass and fill. Allow enough room in the glass to add Half and Half to taste.
Adding Half and Half adds to the flavor, but some people might prefer to leave that out. But look how cool it looks before stirring!
Stir and enjoy!
