Ingredients
  • 1 pound ground coffee (a good, rich roast)
  • Half-and-half (healthy splash per serving)
  • Sweetened condensed milk (2 to 3 tablespoons per serving)
Directions
  • Cook's Note: Can use skim milk, 2-percent milk, whole milk, sugar, artificial sweeteners, syrups...adapt to your liking!

  • In a large container, mix the ground coffee with 8 quarts water. Cover and allow to sit at room temperature for eight hours or overnight.

  • Line a fine mesh strainer with cheesecloth and set over a pitcher or other container. Pour the coffee/water mixture through the strainer, allowing all the liquid to run through. Discard the grounds. Place the coffee liquid in the fridge and allow to cool. Use as needed.

  • To make iced coffee, pack a glass full of ice cubes. Fill the glass two-thirds full with the coffee liquid. Add a healthy splash of half-and-half. Add 2 to 3 tablespoons sweetened condensed milk (can use plain sugar instead) and stir to combine. Taste and adjust the half-and-half and/or sweetened condensed milk as needed.
