The Orchard Chronicles

There are plenty of schools of thought when it comes to making iced coffee at home: some merely make a pot of hot coffee and pour it over ice cubes, which is the easiest method, but also one of the least tasty, as the ice dilutes the strong coffee. But the Orchard Chronicles suggests a surefire method for making cold-brewed iced coffee, starting by making a coffee concentrate overnight with ground beans and water. This method guarantees that the strength of the resulting iced coffee won't be diluted, and it also results in a less bitter taste than hot-brewed iced coffee. An added bonus? You can make enough concentrate to last a week. —Jayanthi Daniel, SAVEUR
