Cold Brewed Iced Coffee
INGREDIENTS: Makes 5 cups (1.2L)
12oz (340g) Camus Coffee (Signature Blend or French Roast) coarsely ground
Place ground coffee in a large container and gradually add 7 cups (1 cup equates to 236ml) of fresh cold water. Stir gently to be sure that all coffee is moistened. Cover with a layer of cheesecloth (a tea towel will do as well) and let it stand at room temperature for 15 hours.
Remove the cheesecloth and use it to line a fine-mesh sieve over a larger pitcher. Pour the coffee through sieve in to the pitcher (do not stir); rinse the jar and set aside. Discard the cheesecloth with solids.
Line same sieve with a large coffee filter and set over the reserved jar. Strain the coffee through sieve in into the jar. Please note that it may take up to 45 minutes for all the coffee to drip through, do not stir since this may cause the coffee to become cloudy. Cover and chill.
Enjoy with milk or add cold water, according to taste. We do not recommend to use ice cubes as this will dilute the coffee further. If ice is needed simply create ice cubes using the iced coffee just prepared.
