Afternoons are my favorite time of day! Everything good happens in the afternoon. On days that Nate's at work, Caleb and I love to get out of the house and play in the yard, head to play dates, or read on the couch. I love it even more when Nate's home, though, and we can spend time together going on hikes, watching a show, or enjoying time at the children's museum. The afternoon nap typically consists of me blogging or reading. All in all, it's just a special time of day!
Regardless of what's going on during the afternoon, you can typically find me with a coffee in my hand. Hot coffee, cold brew, lattes, or fraps - they're all fair game. There's just something about coffee that makes my heart happy... I think it might be an addiction. ;-)
Coffee brings me joy for so many reasons - the smell invigorates my senses and stimulates my brain. The taste makes me take a step back from the daily to-do list and relax. My afternoon coffee jump starts me while also reminding me to breathe.
I really wanted to make my own cold brew now that summer is coming but all the cold brew coffee recipes I was coming across took a million steps and supplies that I didn't own and didn't really want to go out and buy. (Does anyone own a cheese cloth?) If you're in my situation I'm happy to share with you the recipe I came up with to make amazing cold brew coffee! You're welcome.
1 French Press
6 oz Ground Coffee
Cold Water to Fill French Press
Your Favorite Coffee Additives
1. Add your ground coffee to the bottom of the french press. Add water to fill.
2. Put the french press into your fridge for approximately six hours.
