So, as many of you know I love coffee! I bought my first espresso machine 15 years ago with graduation money (my parents were not super thrilled). Over the years I have collected many different coffee brewers from around the world. At last count I had well over twenty. Two years ago I started roasting coffee. It seemed like the natural progression of my coffee obsession. Recently I have been dead set of finding the perfect cold press set-up.
This morning I roasted some Ethiopian beans a friend gave me. Her sister still lives in Ethiopia and has a small plot of coffee plants for personal consumption. I could not wait to try the beans.
This my loyal blog followers is the apparatus that creates the best cold press coffee! Plus, it is pretty darn cool to look at.
I start the brew with about 4 oz. of finely ground coffee. I cover the beans with ice water and fill the top sphere with ice cubes. The cubes will take several hours to melt. The slow brewing process created a very strong and smooth coffee.
