Coffee brewed slowly in cold water is less acidic than hot brewed. You can use this concentrate straight over ice or you can microwave half a mug coffee and then add half a cup of boiling water for quick hot coffee. Develop your own ratio of coffee to water for your custom brew.

I had this over ice. It's the only coffee I've ever had that actually tastes as delicious as ground coffee smells.

Cold brewing makes your iced coffee have a smooth tastes as opposed to hot brewing and then chilling which makes it bitter. Love this recipe. I keep it in the fridge and everyone ads their own creamer and sugar for their tastes. Also, the flavored syrups for coffee work nicely for this recipe.
