Mixing toasted coconut into your coffee grounds before brewing creates a pleasant coconut flavor without any added syrups. If you’re in the habit of buying an iced coffee from a shop every day, this economical homemade version will reduce your plastic use and save you time.
- Makes 3 cups
- 16 oz. coffee beans (about 4 cups), coarsely ground
- 1 1/2 cups toasted unsweetened shredded coconut
- 3 cups milk (cow’s, oat, or nut) or water
- 2 Tbsp. (or more) pure maple syrup
- Place coffee and coconut in large bowl, jar, or pot. Slowly pour in 8 cups cool water and stir very gently until grounds are just moistened. Cover and chill 24 hours.
- Strain coffee grounds through a fine-mesh sieve into a large measuring glass or bowl. Discard grinds. Line sieve with a coffee filter and add as much coffee as will fit. Strain gradually into a 1-qt. airtight container or jar, adding more coffee as space is available until all the coffee has been added. Allow grounds to sit in strainer and continue to drip 20 minutes.
- To serve, pour 1/2 cup coffee into an ice-filled glass; add ½ cup milk and 1 tsp. maple syrup and stir to combine.
- Do Ahead
- Cold brew (without milk and maple syrup) can be made 2 weeks ahead. Keep chilled.
