I work in a coffee shop on my school’s campus. I can make you a cappuccino, a latte, a Vietnamese, any type of coffee drink you can imagine. But when I am at home, do not ask for a cup of coffee. I will screw it up so badly you wouldn’t even know its coffee. I know, I know. I work in a coffee shop, yet I can’t make coffee. I agree, there is something wrong with me. Hey, nobody’s perfect right?
I was browsing the internet (as usual) for some interesting recipes and I came across one at Food52 for some “Magical Coffee.” From what I gather, the recipe was in an article that was written in the New York Times. I looked at the recipe and it seemed pretty simple. I thought, “I shouldn’t be able to screw this one up.” So I gave it a whirl.
Let me tell you, baby, I’m back in the saddle. This iced coffee was so good! The flavors just blended together in such a refreshing, caffeinated drink. I wouldn’t really call it magical, but hey, to each his own right?
Recipe (as found and adapted from Food52) :
- 2/3 cups coarsely ground coffee
- 3 cups water
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 3 tablespoons dark brown sugar
