How to make iced coffee
I always use cold brewed coffee to make a good iced coffee. It is quite easy to do at home. Coffee made with this brewing technique is more delicious, aromatic and less acidic. We should bring together the ice cubes with the coffee that has been brewed. Although it takes some time to make it, most of it goes through waiting, so it does not require much effort. With hot brewed coffee it can also be done quickly without waiting for a long time, but frankly, I find it sour I do not like its taste.
Is not it worth waiting for a delicious homemade iced coffee?

For this cold and refreshing drink, I prefer the medium roasted beans. You can opt for dark roast if you like a more bitter taste. I leave the choice to your taste. The taste of all of them will be slightly different. You should try all of them in order to find the best flavor that you will like.
I think the easiest way to do this is to use the French press. This tool used to make coffee at home may not be found in everyone, so you can do it using other containers to make your own coffee. The big coffee chains like Starbucks do this coffee with the same technique but they use professionally iced coffee makers.
Cold brew coffee making is a long wait time with easy being. Put coarse ground coffee and cold water in a bowl, mix them with a spoon. Now brew time, keep this mixture at room temperature or refrigerator for 12 hours. Do not forget to close the container tightly. That’s it, you’ve made yourself a cold-brewing coffee at home. You can increase the rates if you want. It can be stored in the fridge for 2-3 weeks.
When coffee is ready, it should be cleaned from the grounds. You should filter the coffee for this. You can do filtration with a strainer or cheesecloth. Be careful that there are fine holes so that the grounds do not mix with coffee. If it continues to appear cloudy, filter it again.
Fill a cup with the desired amount of ice cubes and then pour into cold-brewed coffee. If you like you can also add milk or sweetener. Depending on your taste, you can add things like vanilla syrup.
If drinking cold drinks hurt your stomach, you can also drink it by heating the cold brew coffee. There will be no decline in taste, you will get the same caffeine and taste from it.
