When it comes to delivering a delicious caffeine fix, there’s no better trick to have up your sleeve than knowing how to make cold brew coffee. As a dedicated coffee master, I love all the unique brewing methods, from French press to drip to pour-over, but there’s something to be said for the simplicity of cold brewing.
This method needs no special equipment and yields a deeply-flavored coffee concentrate that picks up all the bold flavors of your favorite roast (I love it as a showcase for French Roast coffee, one of my favorite dark roasts), without developing the bitterness and acidity that sometimes comes with brewing in hot water.
A refreshing treat for a spring morning brunch, this coconut-spiked iced coffee is the perfect showcase for the rich, bold flavor of French Roast. The robust cold brew is accented and mellowed somewhat by the addition of the Flavors of Hawaii Coconut Syrup and a splash of half-and-half, making it a complex and slightly indulgent treat—the perfect sip for a holiday morning!
For a fancier table setting, try displaying your cold brew concentrate in a pretty glass decanter then pouring drinks individually at the table. Guests will delight at the gorgeous marbling effect as dark coffee is topped with a drizzle of coconut syrup and cream.
