Summers in Houston are brutal, we have days and days over 100 degrees and if I start my morning with a hot cup of coffee I will begin sweating almost immediately. Not fun! We had been buying Starbucks iced coffee from the grocery store but that cost adds up quickly so I went on the hunt for a better option. I found the perfect cold brew maker! I buy the Starbucks Sumatra blend and grind it with a coffee grinder on a coarse grind level. It's easy, delicious, and cheap! My husband takes a big cup to work every morning so I have to make a new batch every 3 days or so. I just let it sit overnight and it's ready to go in the morning. If you love iced coffee as much as I do, you might want to check it out.
