August 2014 Volume 2, Issue 8| Cold Brew Morning Miracle

Recipe by: Brianna N. EasonYou may remember the article that we did last August on the French Press but we wanted to put a cold spin on this delicious treat for this year.

Cold brew coffee seems to be a trend sweeping the nation. While we are certainly not the first to suggest making it in a French Press, I feel comfortable stating that our French Press is the best for the Job.Why am I so willing to claim this? Like all things newsletter related, I tried it and loved it! The double wall insulation is sort of a mute benefit where the process of cold brew is concerned. The sturdiness of the stainless steel container though is a definite plus as is the fine mesh screen, which eliminates the need for a second filtering.

Combined with the recipe below for Vietnamese coffee, this is my new favorite treat to serve my guests for breakfast or as an afternoon pick-me-up during the summer. I love the image of each guest receiving their own chilled, # 0101 Frieling French Press with cold brew coffee inside, ready to be pressed, next to a high ball glass containing a few ice cubes and sweetened condensed milk. Served alongside a plate piled high with fluffy, buttery croissants, can you imagine a better way to wake up?
