How to Make Coffee Concentrate

coffeeconcentrateadjusted Just another simple idea, with an updated photo. I posted about coffee concentrate a few years ago, but in case you haven’t seen this idea before coffee concentrate is an easy way to make iced coffee at home.

In a French press or large jar add 1 cup ground coffee and fill with 2 to 3 cold water. Let sit at least 4 hours to overnight, and plunge in the morning (or filter through a fine sieve). Store in the fridge. Your concentrate will keep up to two weeks.

Dilute with cold water or milk. Serve over ice or use in recipes.

Life is still quite busy. This weekend is UBCon. I’m hoping that life will calm down soon, if only for the sake of my blood pressure. But I think it’s just going to phase from one type of busy into another. How is it that I’m getting bills dated for May? That can’t be possible already.

Bloggers-I have started a new group board on Pinterest. Open to all DIY, craft, food, or other creative blogs, I would love to have you join. Joining instructions are posted on the board-join here.

Please, stop by this week’s Inspired Weekends!

  1. I love making iced coffee and definitely need to work on making it more concentrated. Thanks for the inspiration! 🙂 Stopping by from the Show Stopper Party (this week’s guest host).

  2. I just bought some Stevia plants. Have you tried adding these sweet leaves to your concentrate instead of sugar? Just curious if you’ve tried Stevia.
