How to Make Japanese-Style Iced Coffee
Dallis Bros. Coffee
It's a well-known fact that we New Yorkers love our iced coffee. So we knew you'd appreciate this recipe by Dallis Bros. Coffee's Josip Drazenovich. It's inspired by the popular Japanese-style iced coffee and made using a hot-brew method. You'll need a coffee brewer like a Bonmac, though any brewer would do, even a French press (you might get some coffee particles with that, depending on your filter). Here goes!
Almost Japanese Style Iced Coffee Josip Drazenovich of Dallis Bros. Coffee Makes 1 drink
Ingredients: Leveled 3/4 cup of freshly roasted coffee grounds, like cracked pepper 9 ounces of water, just below boiling point 16 ounces ice
Method: 1) Put the filter on the brewer. Pre-wet your filters because it improves taste and washes away any paper taste you might get in the cup. 2) Pour the grinds into the brewer. 3) Make the first pour and wait about 20 to 30 seconds to let all those gases out and promote better extraction. 4) After those 20 to 30 seconds have passed, begin the second pour, pouring in small circles straight in the middle (don't let the water level in the brewer go down past or above half way). 5) After you're finished pouring the 9 ounces of water, let it drip--finishing the extraction in about three minutes, 15 seconds. 6) After it has finished dripping, fill your cup with ice and pour directly and aggressively in the middle of the cup
