Author Notes

some good friends of mine in minneapolis became coffee snobs while in grad school and decided to perfect cold press coffee brewing at home. This recipe is my version of their findings. Cold press brewed coffee is absolutely delicious. It requires almost no effort and provides you with easy access to coffee anytime. Serve over ice for a real treat. —abuck
