Recipe by Mike Pellerin

This preparation takes the bitterness out of the coffee. It makes for an exceptional iced coffee.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 12 cups of finely ground coffee
  • 4 cups filtered water


  1. Mix the coffee and water in a large covered jar or pitcher.
  2. After 4 hours or so, the coffee grounds will separate and float to the top. Stir to remix them.
  3. Cover the jar/pitcher and leave at room temperature overnight.
  4. Strain into another jar/pitcher through triple fold of muslin. Dump the grounds in the muslin and give that a good squeeze.
  5. Refrigerate.
  6. Serve using a 1 to 2 ratio (one third coffee concentrate to two thirds cold water).
  7. I would also suggest mixing up some and freezing it into ice cubes, so you don't water down your beverage.
  8. It will keep at least a week.
