A Favourite Iced Coffee Recipe!

Cream being poured into an iced coffee

As Moms, we spend our day catering to other people’s needs and barely take time for ourselves. 

When was the last time you found quiet time, in your own house, where no one was bothering you, where you got to sip on a delicious cup of coffee? Has it been a while? 

Our friends at Stone City Coffee Roasters promise that this easy iced coffee recipe will make your life better!

  • 1 cup (4 ounces / 113 grams) whole coffee beans (We love their Sunrise Blend for iced coffee)

  • 4 cups (32 ounces / 907 grams) cold water

Directions Using a French Press

1. Grind all of the coffee beans just a little finer than your French press setting. You will have just under one cup of coarse grounds.
2. Take the lid off the French press and place the coarsely ground coffee inside.
3. Pour in cold water to fill just below the top of the French Press. Stir the mixture to moisten and mix up all of the coffee grounds (use a plastic or wooden spoon to avoid scratching or breaking your glass beaker).
4. Place the lid back on but do not press down the plunger. Place the French press on the counter and let it steep overnight (12–24 hours).

5. Once the brewing is complete, press down the plunger and pour the coffee into your glass. If you’d like to dilute the concentrate, only pour enough to fill half your glass or mug and add in water to fill the rest. Serve the coffee over ice. Feel free to add water, cream, milk or flavoured sugar syrup to dilute the concentrate. We love the Monin brand syrups for our flavour shots.

If you don't have a French press you can do this recipe in a large jar. Then after your 12–24 hours, you pour the iced coffee through a coffee filter.

Enjoy Mama! And while you're here, sign up for one of our subscription boxes, customized for mom and baby, from Louis and Lea!

"Louis and Léa creates such wonderful boxes for new parents, and are great gift idea as well. All their products are so well thought out - they are good for baby and good for the environment."

"Being a new mom, I came to Manitoba knowing nobody. Since joining Louis and Léa's Raising Little Ones Facebook Group, I’ve met a few people I think I can call lifelong friends. When I don’t know what I’m doing and need some help, the first place I go to is this community to find what other mamas do with their kiddos. I also like being able to help other mamas with questions that I just went through as well! Plus, having the monthly box is a bonus gift to myself which as a mama, I don’t get often. Louis and Léa has changed my life in many ways."

"I got my March box today, on my due date!!!! It was the best surprise. And inside were the most perfect items. I was wanting to get another swaddle before we head to the hospital but came to terms with the fact that I'll likely have to wait, well... now I don't!! The gender neutral pattern and colour is perfect as we don't know what we are having. The brush and comb are so sweet too, they were also on my list of must gets and now I don't have to! The rosemary mint shampoo bar smells divine, I cannot wait to use it and help reduce postpartum and hair loss. Love, love, love, all these items and the adorable St. Patrick's Day photo prop that will be used for many years! Thank you for making this day so special."
