Coffee in a Jar!
Since I might by slightly obsessed with mason jars, I was super excited when I read about making cold brew coffee in a jar on one of my favorite blogs, Food in Jars. Cold brew coffee is magic because you don't need any hot water to make it, you don't need any fussy machines, and it's much less acidic than regular brewed coffee, so there's less chance of yucky heartburn. I really recommend the method described on Food in Jars, it made for some very yummy cold brew!
I don't drink coffee very often and when I do, I have some rules:
1. decaf only, caffeine affects me like CRAZY and I can't handle the full powered stuff.
2. iced only, hot coffee is gross.
3. never drink it black - I like lots of almond or soy milk, and chocolate sauce in my coffee, if it doesn't taste like melted ice cream, I don't want it! Coffee is a treat for me, so when I do have it, I like to indulge :)
So what are your coffee rules?
