The scorching heat of summer calls for innovative ways to keep your body temperature low. Most of you tend to find the idea of drinking a glass of iced coffee as an excellent way of getting rid of the excessive heat. If you think that iced coffee is simply letting your hot coffee get cold as you relax in your Foster City, California apartments, then we need to talk. If you are used to buying your favorite iced coffee from a vendor, then you need to start preparing your best homemade iced coffee today. There are lots of ways to make iced coffee at home, but we shall only dwell on a single method that will give the best drink.


  • 1/3-cup whole coffee beans
  • Ice
  • Milk
  • One and a half cups of filtered cold water
  • Sweeteners such as caramel, melted chocolate or flavored syrups
  • Equipment: You will require a coffee grinder and the French press.

How to Prepare

Start by grinding the coffee beans until they become coarse, to allow easy filtration by your French press and are sufficient to infuse. You should grind right in-between the fine, and you are good to go.

Combine your ground coffee with the filtered water in the French press. Add more coffee to the French press, and top off with one-and-a-half cups of water.

Once you have the mixture in your French press, stir gently until the coffee and the filtered water are well-blended.

Put your French press lid in position and ensure that the plunger is in its upright position. You can let the coffee mixture stay overnight in the refrigerator. Leave the plunger in the upright position, even as you place the mixture in your refrigerator, to allow the grounds to absorb the filtered water overnight.

Remove your mixture from the fridge the following day, and plunge to separate the grounds from the coffee. Conduct this step with a lot of care, if you want to achieve the desired results at the end.

To make your sweet iced coffee, fill your glass/cup with ice cubes and fill it halfway with milk (optional). Fill the remaining half of the glass/cup with the iced coffee you prepared. Gently stir to obtain a fine mixture and start enjoying your homemade iced coffee.

One thing that you have to remember as you prepare your iced coffee in your Foster City apartments, is that if your French press is larger, then you can make a more significant amount of iced coffee using the same ratio of water to ground coffee.
