Cold brewed coffee

I was reading old posts on Kim Miller's blog, and found a post on cold brewed coffee. I have been reading about this for quite some time, but now when summer is soon to come, it felt like the perfect time to try it. I really like cold coffee, but have never really managed to get it perfect. The taste was always bit off and the time it took to cool was just not pleasant. This is perfect. It's already cold when you need it, and the taste is not as acid-y. I drank it with a splash of coffee creamer, soy milk and some homemade mint syrup (1 part sugar, 1 part water, few drops of peppermint extract and boil until dissolved). It was so good I had to have another one. Since the cold brew becomes a coffee extract, you bet it left me shaky the whole day. So worth it.

Cold brewed coffee
1/3 cup coffee grounds
1 1/2 cup cold water

Mix and let steep in the fridge over night or at least 8 hours. Strain. I used a French press, which made the process super easy, but you could use a fine mesh strainer and some cheese cloth if you don't have one.

After getting high on the coffee I went driving. I'm practicing for my license and I don't know if it was the coffee but it went awesome. We drove to Örebro where I met up with my friend Mikael and he served me some mushroom-artichoke-olive quesadillas. That calmed down my heart that was heavily beating from the strong coffee and adrenaline from driving. 

The day kept on being great, but hey, what day isn't when you're wearing all denim?
