- coffee beans : 0.25 cup
- water : 1.5 cup (cold and filtered)
- ice : 1 tsp (or to your taste)
- milk : 1 Tbsp (or to your taste)
- sweeteners : 1 Tbsp (flavored syrups, caramel, or melted chocolate, optional)
Stages of cooking
Grind 1/3 cup of coffee beans first. They should be firm enough to be filtered by the French press, but they should still remain fine to be infused properly.
Spoon the ground coffee into the French press and add 1.5 cups of water.
Then carefully stir the coffee and the water you have added.
Keep the plunger of the French press in the upper position.
Make sure the plunger remains in this position so the grounds could soak the water overnight. It is recommended to do the process from the evening.
Wait until the next morning to plunge the French press and separate the coffee from the grounds.
Take a clean glass, add ice cubes into it and pour a quarter of milk. Then pour iced coffee. You can also add caramel sauce, vanilla, cinnamon, marshmallow or chocolate to your coffee. This depends upon your taste. Don’t forget to stir the drink well and enjoy its taste!
