Making Coffee Concentrate: See Recipe
Image by cobalt123
My recipe on making coffee concentrate is below. It’s the best method of making very rich coffee at home. Easy to do and inexpensive, you can keep it 2 weeks in your refrigerator. Just fill a coffee mug up about 1/4 and add hot water. Very smooth and rich. This image shows a shot of the ground coffee in a bowl, just after I added the water to soak the coffee. After 12 hours, the concentrate is very dark brown and ready to use. It "works" because the coffee is not "cooked" again before the concentrate is made.

In a 2 1/2 quart bowl:
5 cups fresh ground coffee (grind it fine)
Fill bowl to rim with filtered water

Let sit for 12 hours or more, covered with a lid or plastic wrap. Stir a few times over the soaking period. Produces about 4 1/2 cups of coffee concentrate.

Strain the liquid into a refrigerator bottle or container. To use, makes great hot coffee or iced coffee. Use only about 1/5 or 1/3 of the glass or mug of the concentrate. Add water or milk (for iced coffee). Sugar as desired.

My particular preferences, just found by experimenting:
I grind up 2 or 3 types of coffee, with my favorite recipe using 3 cups of a hazelnut flavored coffee, and the rest is French roast, Kona Blend, or other types of coffee beans. I found that grinding coffee beans makes the best flavor.
