Iced Coffee

Iced Coffee Concentrate.


  • 1 gallon water (I buy a gallon of drinking water)
  • 1 lb bag of your favorite rich coffee (course ground if ya can get it)
  • Coffee filters or several layers of cheesecloth
  • a fine mesh strainer.
  • a large bowl
  • pitcher (big enough to hold a gallon)


  1. Pour gallon of water into your large bowl.
  2. Dump the entire bag of coffee into the water/bowl.
  3. Stir to make sure all grounds are saturated with water.
  4. Walk away, for 12 hours or overnight.
  5. line a mesh strainer with a coffee filter or several layers of cheese-cloth, set the strainer on top of your pitcher.
  6. Pour (or ladle) your coffee mixture into the strainer. (this part takes awhile… I often had to walk away while it filtered into the pitcher) If using coffee filters, you might have to replace them several times during the filtering process.
  7. Once all the coffee concentrate has been filtered, stick it in the fridge (it will last for a month!)

Sweet Cream
1, 12oz can of evaporated milk

1, 14oz can of sweetened condensed milk

mix both cans together, refrigerate.

  1. Grab your favorite glass and fill it to the top with ice.

2. Pour iced coffee concentrate into your glass, filling it a little more than half-full.

3. Add Sweet Cream into the coffee/ice glass until full (or to taste)

4. stir to combine.
