* cold brewed coffee - 250 g coffee beans (ground for french press) and 1 liter of mineral water: Slowly pour the mineral water over the ground coffee. Cover it and leave for 24 hours. First strain it through an ordinary strainer. Then strain it again through a dishcloth or a paper towel. It might take some time, but it'll be worth the while. This fantastic cold brewed coffee can be stored in a jar in the refrigerator for up to two weeks.
