A Brewing Guide to the Perfect New Orleans Iced Coffee

August 27, 2015

New Orleans iced coffee is a creamy and decadent coffee drink that was initially created to replace iced lattes, which are often disappointing and unpredictable in taste. Roasted chicory is the signature flavor in this drink, and then it is cold-brewed for 12 hours and combined with creamy milk and organic cane sugar to make the perfect iced coffee that serves as a sweet treat, while also delivering great coffee taste and plenty of caffeine.

Step 1: Grind coffee beans coarsely, then add grounds and 1.5 ounces of roasted chicory to a stockpot.

Step 2: Pour about 10 cups of cold, filtered water into the stockpot and stir to immerse all of the grounds.

Step 3: Cover the stockpot and let it steep for 12 hours.

Step 4: Next, pour the contents of the stockpot through a metal sieve to strain.

Step 5: Add about 3.5 ounces of simple syrup and stir thoroughly.

Step 6: Serve over ice and add milk to taste. Enjoy!
