Cold Press Coffee is all the rage these days, the cost is through the roof. You don't need to take out a mortgage to afford this luxury. Make your very own without the cost of the store bought version.
1 1/2 Cups Coffee Beans
8 Cups Water
1/4 Cup Milk (your choice)
2 Cinnamon Sticks (or other Simple Surprises)
1 Tbsp Honey (or sweet of your choice)
Add 8 Cups of water in a large pitcher, stir.
Let mixture set at room temperature for 12-24 hours. The longer the stronger your coffee will be.
If desired, add vanilla bean, cinnamon sticks, cardamon pods or fresh mint at this point.
