I Am In Love With Cold Brew Coffee

We all are.  I remember when I tried it  a few weeks ago, and all of a sudden I discovered Nirvana.  Such smoothness, such flavor and no bitterness.  It is worth the wait if you make your own, as we have learned to do.   I have tried making it in a mason jar using a direct pour of half a cup of ground, or throwing in a cold brew package which are convenient, but spendy.  Then I found a 2 quart maker on Amazon that self filters, and we are likely to try the results of that tomorrow.  My brother told us that he sees that Teresa found a new toy, but we spend a lot of money on coffee.  We all drink it all the time, and if you’re going to do that you might as well enjoy the experience as much as possible to do so.

I love coffee, and it just so happens that at the same time I was discovering cold brew, I brought home an enamel coffee percolator to have on hand if the power went out and we had to heat our own coffee on the wood stove.   If you have never had percolated coffee, you are missing out on an experience.  For one thing, it takes real skill to perc an acceptable tasting cup of coffee.  I regret to say that I am still developing such expertise, so we will likely save the percolator for those times when we have no other choice.  My brother says he likes bitter coffee.  Steve told him he was lying about that.  I tend to agree with Steve.  Percolated coffee while it does the job, taste awful especially when one makes a direct comparison with cold brew coffee.
