I’m sure a lot of you folks reading this are feeling some heat right now. If you aren’t, well then, a lot of us are probably very envious of you at the moment. It has been hot here in Florida, but not near as hot as some other places right now. Currently Florida is being dumped on almost day after day with more rain we can handle and its still very hot out. With all this crazy weather I’ve been pretty much holding hostage in the house making lots of iced coffee and loving every moment of it.
Alongside playing with iced coffee recipes, I’ve been also getting to know the V60 dripper all over again. It’s been quite awhile since using it. After running out of Kalita filters this past month, I decided to jump over to the V60 once again and play around with it.
My iced coffee recipes usually consist of me doubling my bean ratio and keeping the water ratio the same. Its one thing to up the dose on a recipe when making iced coffee, but to double the beans like I do was becoming overkill. This is practically wasting good beans here.
Today I come here with a new iced v60 recipe. I wish I could say that the recipe below was one of my own creations but in fact, this recipe came from a fellow Twitter user, @ChristosAndrews.
Take your favorite parameters, reduce the pour water by 1/3, and substitute the rest with ice.
You’ll see below I’ve taken one of my base ratios and reduced the water ratio by 1/3 and substituting the rest for ice. I’ve been using this exact recipe as a baseline for my iced coffees in the V60 and have ended up with some great results.
What are you waiting for now? Get off the computer and give this recipe a shot. I expect to hear back from you!
