Duration: 16 to 18 hours, almost completely unattended
Ingredients (for two glasses of 30 cl of coffee):
- 230 grams of coarsely ground coffee beans, preferably medium roast from Africa
- 4 sprigs of mint
- 1/2 liter of water (35 cl and to dilute the coffee after infusion)
Pack the coffee beans and mint together in two layers of cheesecloth [NDT: also called a stamen tissue, which is used before draining the curd. You can also take the cheese cloth or muslin with test]. Make a packet with elastic. You can also use the same ingredients in a coffee plunger.
Place the package in a bowl and pour over 1/2 liter of water at room temperature. Cover with plastic wrap and let stand 16 to 18 hours.
Remove the packet of coffee and squeeze it into the bowl before discarding. Filter coffee obtained with a coffee filter in a carafe. This will get rid of the grounds which may have accumulated. Squeeze the filter if the liquid takes a long time to pass.
Once filtered coffee, you should get about 1/4 liter of liquid. Add 35 cl of cold water (you can put more or less to taste) and mix. Pour into two glasses with ice and drink your milk and / or sugar favorite.
Tip: let the mixture stand for about 16 hours, and finally filter and take dilution just before going to bed. You can place your iced coffee in the fridge and it will wait for the next morning.
The secret ingredient is mint. Yes.
