almond flavored cold brew coffee


Cold brew coffee is one of my favorite ways to drink my daily cup when the season changes a bit and iced coffee starts to sound good in the afternoon. I have made this many times but usually use vanilla and cinnamon along with the brown sugar and coarse grounds but this time I decided to try a little almond extract instead. I really loved the subtle almond flavor with a bit of soy creamer over ice.

Cold brewed coffee is simple and inexpensive if you have never done it before all you need is a small pitcher but I prefer to use my french press so that I don't have to strain out the grounds with a fine sieve or paper towel. But either way it's super yummy and fun!

Almond flavored cold brew coffee:

3/4 cup of coarse coffee grounds
3 Tbs brown sugar
2 teaspoons almond extract
a sprinkle of cinnamon (optional)
3 or 4 cups of cold water. 
I just fill my french press but if you use a pitcher I think 3 to 4 cups should be good.


Pour everything into your french press and mix then let sit in your fridge over night. When ready strain out the grounds and enjoy the coffee concentrate over ice with a bit of your favorite creamer.

enjoy!

  19. I make a french press worth of coffee every morning. I have a cup and save just enough for an afternoon ice-coffee pick me up. This recipe is just what I needed to update this routine a bit. The almond extract and hint of cinnamon really put it over the top! Thanks for sharing this- and for feeding my caffeine fix!
