Meet our fellow-Michigan friend, Jill, For those who don't know her, she is a pretty cool person. She's an artist, an elementary school art teacher, a Spartan, a tea lover (but appreciates coffee), a biker (currently riding her bike like across the country), she is from Traverse City, MI (most beautiful city in America), and she's the kindest person you'll ever meet. You can check out her blog at jilldrokos.blogspot.com
Sorry about the winter picture in the post about the summer, the editors didn't catch that...
Last summer Jill shared how she used our beans to cool down in the summer time. Now that our summer weather is finally here in Charlotte, I wanted to share her mix and let you try it for yourself.
Here it is:
Iced Coffee, makes about 2-3 servings
1 quarts water to 2 ounces ground coffee
Pinches of any combination of spices (Jill recommends nutmeg & cinnamon).
Milks and sweeteners as you like
In a large Mason Jar combine the water (cool or lukewarm), spices, and ground coffee.
Give the mixture a stir and let it sit for about 8 hours.
After it's set, strain the coffee through cheesecloth.
Fill a glass with ice and pour in your chilled iced coffee.
Cream and sugar it to taste... Drink
Enjoy and stay cool... Oh Yeah, and Love Your Beans!!!
