Cold-pressed, iced-coffee!

During the summer months I occasionally mention iced-coffee.

Did you know that the Wyoming Carmelites have a coffee maker especially for iced-coffee?

Ecce! The Bodum Iced-Coffee Maker.

It is like a French press. You add the coffee and cold water, stir (always do that with hot coffee in the French press, too) and refrigerate overnight. The cover is air-tight to keep in the essential oils and keep out refrigerator scents.  Then you plunge it.  Then you pour it. Then you drink it – nay, rather… savor it – perhaps in one of their insulated glasses!

And I can’t see why you couldn’t use it for hot coffee as well.  The press is my usual way of making coffee, by they way.  The advantage with this gizmo is that, unlike the usual French press, this once has a cover that seals!  You don’t want that left-over garlic bread flavoring the coffee (as well as the ice in your freezer – blech).

So much easier than trying to filter your grounds the next day (read: not nearly as slow and messy).

    Thanks for the tip, Father. I do LOVE me some iced coffee…..and I didn’t even know you could do it this way.

    We have been drinking more coffee lately and ran out of our Mystic Monk so had to actually buy “secular” coffee to tide us over until the next shipment. Glad our MM arrived last week, it is so much better!

    Our french press is a 4 cup which means 2 real cups so I am looking into getting a bigger one, will have to check out the Carmelites site.

    Looks good enough for me to regret giving up caffiene. The unleaded doesn’t even taste close. Occaisionally if up VERY early in morning will have a little real coffee, but for a decaffeinated person even that little bit can do some damage.
