I needed some caffeine, but I wanted to do it the hardest way possible. Here are the results.
Overall, the project was much more work than anticipated. Filtering took forever, and I clearly lacked the proper tools. I probably should’ve used coarsely ground beans. The flavor was weak, and I wonder if it might take more coffee grinds using this method.
It was nice to have some cold coffee ready to go, but for next time, I’ll stick with the drip and just cool it ahead of time.
I picked up a few things from a Japanese market in Pittsburgh. Let’s eat them!
