Brewing Your Perfect Cup of Southern-Style Iced Coffee

Last updated 6 years ago

Louisiana is famous for more than just great food. Natives and visitors alike love many local drinks such as Barq’s Red Cream Soda and chicory coffee. Though they can certainly be made hot, both traditional and chicory coffees can also be cold-brewed for an extra-delicious treat. Many people prefer cold-brewed iced coffee for its low acidity and concentrated flavor. Regardless of whether you reside in Louisiana or live several states away, you too can enjoy authentic southern-style iced coffee right at home.

What You’ll Need

Brewing southern-style iced coffee requires a few supplies. First, select your favorite brand of traditional or chicory coffee. Next, ready a Toddy brewing container, Toddy decanter, and Toddy filters. Lastly, put to the side approximately seven cups of water.

How to Prepare the Perfect Coffee

Once you have the needed equipment, making southern-style iced coffee is extremely easy. Prepare your coffee by making a coarse grind with your coffee beans. Then, evenly layer your ground coffee with the cups of water into your Toddy brewing container, making sure the stopper and filter are in place. Once you have emptied both ingredients into your brewing container, let it sit. You don’t need to stir or sift anything. Finally, place the brewing container over your Toddy decanter.

When You Can Enjoy

Making authentic southern iced coffee does require a little bit of patience. In fact, you’ll need approximately 12 hours before your coffee is ready, but it’s well worth the wait! Once the requisite time has passed, your cold-brewed coffee is ready to drink. Mix it with your favorite milk or creamer, pour into a tall glass filled with ice, and enjoy.
