I do still loves me good espresso. But the cold brewed coffee I make at home is just so damned convenient, plus it just tastes so wonderful. Smooth, full of strong coffee flavor without bitterness. So the Mrs. and I have mostly given over our ristrettos and cappuccinos and are enjoying the great flavor of our own cold brews.
Uncomplicated recipe: I cup Folgers medium roast for every 4.5 cups of water, put in a pitcher which is stirred, covered, stirred again maybe at 12 hours, then after 24 or so hours put thru a coarse filter, then a fine filter, using gravity only! Chill, dilute any way we please (I like mine diluted with half and half and a couple ice cubes, the Mrs. likes hers with a splash of hazelnut syrup plus the half and half and ice), and serve.
How about you all?
