Thai Iced Coffee - 12 Hour Brew Technique

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by Debbwl

This is a cool coffee drink that is brewed by allowing it to stand at room temperature for 12 hours and thus not heating up your house on an already hot day. *We prefer dark roast for the fuller flavor but you could use regular roast.

This was so good, I made half the recipe and wished I had made the whole recipe instead, next time. I loved how easy it was to make. I let it sit overnight and enjoyed it in the morning and afternoon. I used Starbucks Bold French Roast Coffee, it was wonderful prepared this way. The condensed milk makes it very rich, sweet and creamy. Thanks for sharing this wonderful recipe, that I will make again.
