Guild of Sommeliers - Intro to Coffee preparation
Like surprise parties, camping trips and the supplest of beef briskets, cold brewed coffee is best executed with a bit of foresight. The Filtron method is, for our money, the most reliable and delicious way to get complex single origin iced coffee at home.
It takes about 12 hours overall, but the rewards for a little patience are many: If you, like us, have ever stepped onto a forebodingly hot New York street at 7:13 a.m., groggy but determined, you know that each sip is its own reward.
Arguably the simplest and cleanest way to draw out a coffee’s best qualities, the pour-over method is elegant without being prohibitively difficult.
For those accustomed to coffee from a drip machine, this method will produce something similar but noticeably more delicate and complex.
