Hello! Welcome to our part of the world! I hope you are enjoying the beautiful weather as much as we are! Much time has been spent outside in the most gorgeous July weather I have ever experienced in my lifetime! Yes, it is more humid than ever haha, but I (Betty) happen to be weird and love the humidity over the dryness we usually experience this time of year.
Anyway, on to our delicious recipe! We have tried cold coffee in some pretty interesting ways. Instant Coffee in Iced Water, Espresso with Seltzer, Cold Brew, Cold Brew Drip, and finally, a forgotten cold coffee recipe... The Iced Pour Over!
Flash Chilling coffee is becoming a huge thing these days, and for good reason! It saves your coffee from oxidizing and losing those awesome flavors! You may think this is a long process... Nope! It takes less than 5 minutes till you are sipping on some amazing iced coffee that will knock your socks off! Let's get started!
Here is what you will need:
Coffee Brewer (we use a V60 or Chemex)
30 grams Fresh Ground RSR House Blend Coffee
250 grams Ice
250 grams Boiled Water (195-205 F)
Steps to make Iced Pour Over:
Boil water to around 195 - 205 degrees Fahrenheit.
Take your 250 grams of ice and add it to your brewer.
Rinse your paper filter to remove any paper taste. Place the filter in your brewer top along with 30 grams of freshly ground coffee.
Zero your scale and gently pour about 30 grams of the boiled water over the coffee grounds and allow it to bloom for about 20-30 seconds.
Pouring slowly, continue to add 110 grams of water. Allow the water to drain and then add the last 110 grams of water. Let the coffee drip slow to almost none existent.
Remove filter and grounds from brewer and swirl to mix flavors evenly throughout the coffee and ice.
Pour coffee with the ice into a glass and enjoy!
Prop up those tired feet and enjoy some amazing Iced Coffee while you rest and relax!
We hope you enjoy this coffee recipe as much as we do! Thanks to one of our great customers for reminding us of this gem that got lost in the daily grind!
What is your favorite way to enjoy a good cup of coffee? We would love to hear from you!
Have a great day and don't forget to enjoy your coffee!
