Topic: Aeropress for iced coffee (4 msgs / 82 lines)
1) From: Seth Grandeau
For the last couple of days I've been making an AP iced coffee for the drive
to work and I've been very happy with the results.  I have a 16 oz insulated
travel mug.  I fill it with ice.  I grind 3 AP scoops and add a little sugar
to the grinds in the AP.  Fill it to the top with hot water.  Stir and steep
like normal.  Then press the coffee right over the ice.  The melted ice
waters things down to the strength I like in my iced coffee.  Screw on the
top and I'm good to go!
Any suggestions for coffees people like iced?

Seth this is exactly the way I take my double (to quadruple) espresso shot
every day for years, except with an espresso machine (and a moka pot in the
past). Double shot over three cubes of ice with three packets splenda. I've
mentioned it here a few times but not many comments...i just dont like hot
coffee (or any hot drink)...even in 20 degree weather. I've had all my SO
espressos that way (i guess its an iced americano)...and love it!!! I think
it is easier also to taste the flavor nuances while cold....I do find that
there has to be good ice (made reasonably fresh with good water...and not
freezer burned) and there has to be enough ice to cool the cup quick.
Otherwise, one or two cubes simply melts and makes tepid watered down
coffee...yuck!
I take my FP that way also, but have had to tinker with the grind and coffee
quantity so that it does not taste watered down.
As far as coffee types...i've liked it all.

I like the African varieties...especially Kenyan and Ethiopian  
(general on both). The brighter taste is more cooling for me...even if  
I add a bit of coconut or ff evaporated milk.

I'll probably lose any csa points or hope of future csa points but I was really hot after running an errand one lunch and I did this and it was good:
1. buy small wendy's frosty as last stop & rush back to office
2. Slurp off melted frosty leaving the more solid part (about half). Enjoy that while you
3. Grind IMV+Columbia blend semi-fine/finer than usual where my usual is like a drip grind, about two AP scoops worth
4. add hot water, less than usual and stir excessively and steep slightly longer since a little more  bitters will be actually good
5. Press and pour over remaining solidish Frosty, stir a bit, and enjoy
I was shooting for an espresso-like brew for a Frosty affogato-style.
