Cold Brew Ice Cream Sandwiches 0

Dreamy childhood nostalgia meets the sophistication of a great cold brew in this must-try treat. I give you the cold brew ice cream sandwich.

Cold Brew Ice Cream Sandwiches:

Ingredients:

  • 600ml thickened cream
  • 395g sweetened condensed milk
  • 100ml cold brew concentrate
  • 1 1/2 packets malt biscuits

Method:

Line a tray or freezable container with baking paper and place one layer of malt biscuits upside down on the base.

Using electric beaters, whip cream and condensed milk together until well combined and thickened. Add cold brew and mix well.

Spread ice cream filling over biscuit layer, smoothing the top flat. Top with a second layer of biscuits, aligning them as best you can with the bottom layer. 

Freeze overnight.

Remove from tray. Trim excess ice cream filling from the sides and cut into portions to serve. Let the good times roll.

How to Make Cold Brew Coffee

One of the best things about summer is Cold Brew Coffee! It's quick and easy and is my favourite way to make an iced coffee. Here I will unveil to you my latest brewing ratios and recipes.

Recipe - How to make sparkling iced coffee

Recipe - How to make sparkling iced coffee 1

This recipe shows you how to make what I think may be may favourite summer coffee.
Iced coffee spritzer. There's something really 'cool' about opening the fridge grabbing some concentrate and a bottle of sparkling water and throwing together this coffee to start my morning, maybe because it reminds me of making cordial as a kid. Plus I can do it with my eyes closed (although sometimes that does mean that the coffee is a touch strong.)

Here's the recipe:

First-up make a double strength batch of cold coffee concentrate by using half the water in the recipe. Here (If you do not have a filter for this recipe just grab any coffee filter paper from the supermarket and improvise.)

 

Once you've got your concentrate you just need to dilute it at about 1 to 5 with sparkling water, I use a soda stream.

Enjoy

Aeropress Masterclass Part Two - Grind Size

Aeropress Masterclass Part Two - Grind Size 0

To get the most from any coffee brewing method you need to understand the impact of grind size. Aeropress is no exception.

The science of how certain grind sizes impact taste is irrelevant to this article. We're focussing only on taste.  You need to find a grind size that helps achieve the desired results for each individual brew. The process is simple.

Make coffee, taste coffee.
Make a change, taste the change.
Repeat as desired.

Here's a chart to quickly show you how grind size effects flavour.
If your grind is too fine you'll get the flavours on the left.
Too coarse and you'll taste the flavours on the right hand side. 

Impact of Grind on Aeropress Brew

(Note: if you are finding you get flavours from both sides of the chart you'll need to make a choice which one do you dislike the most. Then move away from that flavour. Later posts in this series will teach ways around that issue)
