Iced Coffee

Coffee! I think I can’t live without coffee, you know… When I was traveling in Asia, I saw people drank coffee with milk and ice cubes in the morning and I was like “Whaaaat”. But then after trying it for the first time, I can’t get rid of it haha.. What I was impressed a lot is Vietnamese street-style iced coffee. There are several styles and one of them is egg coffee. If you would visit Vietnam, never miss to try this special coffee!

Iced Coffee

Ingredients

  • 8 ounces dark roast coffee grounds
  • 4 quarts filtered water

Instrucion

Pour half the water in two half-gallon pitchers. Sprinkle 4 ounces ground coffee over the water in both pitchers. Cover and let sit 30 minutes; after 30 minutes, stir.
Cover again and let sit at room temperature overnight.
Line a fine mesh strainer with a double layer of fine cheesecloth or a coffee filter set over a large bowl or pitcher. Pour the coffee mixture through the strainer and allow the liquid to run through. The coffee mixture will take several minutes to strain, and will need to be done about 2 cups at a time. When finished, discard the coffee grounds.
Pour the strained coffee in a covered container in the fridge until cooled.
