Cardamom Orange Cold-Brewed Iced Coffee

Cardamom-Orange Iced Coffee, cold-brewed for a delicious, special yet simple treat.  Serve this with a simple syrup and a splash of cream for a decadent treat in seconds.  You deserve it!

You know how sometimes you just really need a special treat in your life?  Preferably caffeinated and maybe even sweet??

But with all your crazy spirited children running around, you can barely find a glass, let alone take the time to make yourself a pot of coffee or better yet, a run to the nearest coffee shop?  (Wait, that’s just me?)

Well, make a big batch of this delicious cold-brewed coffee and problem solved.  Delicious, decadent coffee treats, ready-to-go, all week long!  (Or at least a day or two!)

You can really infuse this coffee, with any flavors you’d like.  Or, of course, leave it plain.  But plain is boring, and I like to change this up with flavors each time I make it!

Cinnamon is great.  Cinnamon with a bit of cocoa powder and cayenne is even better.  But cardamom & orange is my favorite.  So fresh, flavorful and vibrant.  And different.  I like different.

I could drink this every day.

I do drink this almost every day.  :o)

Personally, I get plenty of sugar in my life in other ways, like – you know – cookies, so I enjoy this best unsweetened with a splash of heavy cream.

But, mix it up however you like best.  It’s your treat!

Homemade Cardamom-Orange Cold-Brewed Coffee

Ingredients

  • 2 cups, packed, ground coffee
  • zest of 2 large oranges
  • 2 teaspoons ground cardamom
  • 2 quarts cold water

Directions

Comine all the ingredients in a large tupperware container. Stir well, cover and let sit at room temperature for about 24 hours.

Strain the mixture through a fine-mesh strainer, and then again through the fine-mesh strainer that has been lined with cheesecloth or paper towels.

Pour into a pitcher and keep in the fridge for up to a week, if it lasts that long!

Serve cold, over ice, with a simple syrup or agave, if you like sweet, and a bit of cream or milk. Yum!
