Making flash brewed coffee is a necessity in hotter and hotter days. Luckily, Japanese style iced coffee can be made in various brewing devices like we showed in our recent Iced Chemex entry and on our much older and more thorough Flash Brew iced coffee recipe. While creating the former, we realized we'd never officially shared this video.
In this iced pour coffee instruction video we used a Hario Drip pot, because aside from looking so cool, it's a great serving size for one or two people but the nature of the cloth filters makes us grind our coffee a little coarser. We also include the ice cube weight into our water measurements, since as the ice melts your coffee-to-water ratio will change. you can use
-/+ 360g, we find this to be a winning combination which ensures that you have enough ice
in the bottom of your vessel to ensure that the coffee remains cold, while simultaneously giving you enough hot water to brew the coffee. Scroll to the bottom for our YouTube video.
