Cold Brewed Ice Coffee

My friend Pat and I experimented (independently) with making "cold brewed" coffee this weekend. Yes, you really can do it. It just takes a while. It was also as advertised: not bitter and stands up well to ice. Because it was never hot, it does not suffer the same sort of breakdown that hot brewed coffee does, so you can keep it longer. That's a good thing because it takes many hours to brew.

My recipe? That's a secret. You can try a glass at the stand setup on the end of my driveway for $1.50. Okay there's no stand on the end of my driveway...yet.
