I tried, alright, I really tried.
Let me back up a bit.
Right now it’s about midnight Monday, January 19th and I finally finished making iced coffee.
Just as a refresher, I tried to make my own iced coffee to save money. But after getting made fun of by my family for a gross looking pitcher of dirt water I don’t know if it’s worth it. But here’s what I did.
This morning, at about 11:30ish I got my shit together and tried to make iced coffee. I should’ve done it when I woke up this morning. But whatever. I chose to follow Hungry Girl Por Vida’s recipe. Won’t lie, it seemed the easiest to me. Plus the wikihow article was only a general outline. So here’s the beginning of a terrible idea.
Here are my supplies. Dunkin Donuts French Vanilla ground coffee. I’m a little nervous about the flavoring but hopefully this works out. Pretty pitcher with 9 cups of water. And cling wrap to cover the pitcher evenly. Peep Santa Claus’s beard in the background. Oops.
Here’s how I separated the coffee grinds from the coffee. It is from Teavana. They don’t make this model anymore since its at least 5 years old but I found this, which is essentially the same thing.
So because the recipe told me to leave it for 12 hours, I decided to go to sleep with an alarm set for 11:30pm. That was a terrible idea. Not only did my alarm go off just as I was falling asleep, I also had to get out of my nice warm bed to go filter coffee that I couldn’t even drink yet. I really am hoping it’ll be worth it tomorrow morning.
Wish me luck everyone, cheers!
