What Is Japanese-Style Iced Coffee?
Japanese-Style Iced Coffee is simple. It’s hot-brewed coffee that’s poured over ice immediately before serving. This may be a favorite for coffee purists, especially if you like your coffee black. The combination of hot brewed coffee and ice can bring out the flavors in a special way. Using a great-tasting coffee, such as Alex’s Low-Acid Organic Coffee, can let you enjoy your Japanese-Style Iced Coffee even more.
How to Weigh Your Coffee and Water
This recipe calls for 8 ounces of ice, 1 ounce of ground coffee and 8 ounces of water. You can measure these ingredients separately on a kitchen scale. Just remember to tare, or “zero,” the scale with the carafe or jar, before adding the water or coffee beans. In other words, put the container or other receptacle on the scale, press the tare button, and wait until the scale reads “0.” Then add your water or coffee.
It’s okay if you don’t have a kitchen scale. You can use about 1/4 cups of ground coffee instead of 1 ounce. Instead of 8 ounces of water, you can use 1 8-ounce cup, measured while the water is hot. You can also use about 2 cups of ice instead of 8 ounces.
For this recipe, choose from Fresh Ground or Whole Bean coffee. If you use Whole Bean coffee, use a grinder or food processor to get it to a medium-coarse consistency.
Making Japanese-Style Iced Coffee with a Coffee Maker
Are you attached to your electric coffee maker? Don’t worry; you’re not alone. It’s convenient and easy to use, and you can still make Japanese-Style Iced Coffee in it. Just fill the coffee pot with ice and brew your coffee as usual so the hot liquid drops onto the ice.
