I'm a big fan of cold-brewed coffee, whether I drink it iced or heat it up. You can read more about it in my cold brew tutorial here. Infusing it with citrus peel and spices gave it a nice subtle flavor without adding any sugar. It's a bit reminiscent of mulled wine, so I think that Ethiopian beans would be a nice choice for this, since they have some wine-y notes. However, any beans would certainly work!
ORANGE SPICE COLD BREW COFFEE
Makes 4 cups of double concentrate
- 2/3 cup coffee beans
- 3-4 strips of orange zest (use a vegetable peeler to get the outer orange part only, without the white pith)
- 1 cinnamon stick
- 2 whole cloves
- Follow the cold brew tutorial here, adding the spices and orange zest to the water along with the ground beans.
- To serve, dilute 1:1 with water. For iced coffee, I love using unsweetened coconut water to dilute it. Or for hot coffee, I love it bulletproof style sprinkled with cinnamon. But serve it any way you'd like!
