Carolyn's Cafe Notes...

Iced Coffee for the Summer!

Have a french coffee press hanging around the house without an idea what to do with it?  Try cold brewing coffee for a refreshing take on a morning favorite.  First choose a nice latin coffee with spritely, citrus notes...suggestion?  Costa Rican is a fine latin coffee grown in volcanic rich soil producing some of the world's smoothest latin coffees with mild acidity and rich flavor.   Double your recipe...nothing is worse than drinking weak coffee. Ground coarse for your coffee press add good water and brew for 8 to 12 hours.  What you get is a coffee essence that is out of this world with little or no acidity.  If you want to step it up a bit add fresh cut oranges and orange syrup or liquor.  Add your favorite creamer (non-flavored) and pour over ice for a refreshing summertime drink.
