Cold brew coffee float
When I came to the US I was shocked to discover ice cream floats, not because I thought they were good, but because I thought they were terrible! So much sugar, so much sweetness… Years later I’ve still not gotten used to them, with one exception, coffee floats.
I make mine following the Noble Coyote cold brew coffee recipe and I think it’s delicious.
Ready to make it? Here’s what you’ll need to do:
|Coursely Ground Coffee- 10 oz|
Crema of Fior di Latte Gelato
|Add coffee to brewing vessel.|
|Add 5.5 cups of filtered water to the coffee|
|Agitate with a flat spoon or paddle making sure all coffee becomes saturated|
|Continue to agitate periodically for approximately 5 minute until no crust forms between agitations|
|Steep for 14-18 hours (as desired for flavor and strength)|
|Remove grounds and let drain, do not squeeze|
Dilute resulting concentration to a total volume of 10 cups
I like to sweeten my coffee, I top it off with crema gelato or fior di latte. It’s delicious from beggining to end because as the gelato melts it mixes nicely with the coffee. Give it a try and let us know what you think!
