I love coffee. It’s really something (as a mom who is up all night and dealing with two kiddos at home all day) that I have come to appreciate more than I ever thought I could. I like coffee all kinds of different ways, but iced is absolutely my favorite variety this time of year. With my kids running crazy, it sure is nice to have my coffee ready when I need it…and that is exactly what I have every morning! Forget the Keurig, I am going to show you how to make a batch of coffee concentrate overnight that will last you a week (or a day or two if you’re like me)!

It’s so simple, and you don’t need a coffee maker of ANY kind! Just coffee, water and a coffee filter (or cheesecloth)!

Easy Coffee Concentrate! Iced coffee in seconds!
