Aldi Iced Coffee Drink

I love coffee! In the summer, usually mid day or after dinner, I like a refreshing glass of iced coffee. I have discovered a very inexpensive way to make a delicious blend. I’m a frequent Aldi shopper. You can find me there at least a couple times a week.

Here’s what I get for my drink.

You can buy this delicious duo for just a bit more then the price of one large iced coffee from a coffee shop! Stok Cold Brew Coffee, it’s in the refrigerator section, and this vanilla almond milk coffee creamer. I fill my glass with ice and then almost to the top with coffee then I top it off with a splash of the creamer. The creamer is sweet so you have to adjust to your liking. An inexpensive, tasty treat! Enjoy

Pour Over Coffee

I am a huge coffee lover! This is by far the best way to make a perfect, delicious cup of coffee, it tastes so rich and smooth.

Here’s my take on it:

First, use whole beans. They make a huge difference in the flavor. The coffee tastes so fresh! I love the taste of Peet’s, you can use your favorite.

Grind the beans right before you brew them. Most recipes call for coarse grounds but I prefer mine fine. I use a heaping tablespoon of beans per cup. We like strong coffee.

You need a pot with a long gooseneck spout. This helps the water to pour sparingly and slowly over the grounds. I use an electric teapot that has the perfect coffee temperature setting. You can also use the stovetop but a long skinny spout is necessary for pour over.

Start pouring water over grounds in a slow circular pattern.

When you do the first pour, the water soaks the grounds. A “bloom” will form. Once the bloom forms, stir gently. This releases gases and starts the drip. Slowly keep pouring then waiting for the water to drain until the caraf is filled.

Let all the water drip through then remove the filter basket.

Pour and Enjoy!

This coffee takes some effort but it is so worth it!
