Brew Time

Initially conceived as an alternative to the iced latte, the New Orleans-style Iced Coffee is cold-brewed for 12 hours with roasted chicory and sweetened with organic cane sugar. The end result is a potent concentrate that we cut with organic whole milk. It's sweet, creamy, and consistently delicious.

Step 1

Grind 12 oz / 340 g of whole bean coffee on a coarse setting. Coffee grounds should be gritty and the particles should be easy to distinguish from one another.

Step 6

Add 4 tablespoons / 68 g of simple syrup (made from 3 tablespoons each of sugar and water heated until dissolved) to the coffee concentrate. Stir until syrup is incorporated.

Alternatively: Add just enough simple syrup to each serving to sweeten.

Step 7

Serve over ice, pouring equal amounts of sweetened coffee concentrate and milk or cream (or dairy alternative) into a glass.

Refrigerate any remaining concentrate. Unsweetened, NOLA lasts 7 days. Sweetened, it’s best consumed within 2 days, and with milk, we recommend drinking up—NOLA’s best when made to order.
