Spring is here. The flowers are blooming, the sun is shining, and it’s the perfect time for homemade cold brew coffee! I can’t tell you what an important recipe this is at our house every Spring. We make a batch of this stuff pretty much every week starting in April all the way til October.
I loveee coffee. Love it. I don’t know what I’d do without it. My boyfriend is the same way. We are very cranky and irritable before our first cup. My mornings are nothing short of a groggy, confusing nightmare until I get caffeine in my veins.
To avoid said unpleasantness, I drink coffee from the time my eyes open in the morning until late afternoon. Since I drink so much java, I really can’t afford to buy each and every cup from our local coffee shop. That’s why this cold brew coffee recipe is such a life saver at our house! It’s so inexpensive and easy to make. I don’t know what I’d do on warm days without it.
It always feels like such a momentous occasion when I switch from regular coffee to iced coffee. And this week was the big swap! I ordered my first cold brew of the year and we made our first homemade batch.
This cold brew recipe is wonderful. It’s so flavorful and (pleasingly) strong that even without creamer it tastes like dessert. If you love coffee and its distinct flavor, you’ve got to try this cold brew. It tastes like chocolate.
Are you like me and love coffee? Do you like drinking cold brew in the Spring? Have a great weekend!
