I can't psychologically do cold brewed coffee, but I know people who love it (they heat it after brewing). I don't mind cold brewed tea (I drink it iced), but I prefer sun tea (again, drunk cold).

OH! I forgot to mention what I make in my French Press pot is a Coffee Concentrate. I fill the pot with grounds about 3 or 4 inches high. Then add cold water. Let steep at room temp 6 hours or so. Drain with filter in pot.

This way you never boil the coffee which is what makes the coffee bitter. The Coffee Concentrate is added to the water after it comes to a boil

1 Cup boiling water (or cold water if you want cold coffee)
then add:
1/4 Cup Coffee Concentrate

Then I store it in the fridge after it is strained. It can last a month without going bad.

You can also pour it into an ice cube tray and then after freezing pop them into a zip lock bag. Then put one in a cup of boiling water. Very important: never heat to boiling this coffee concentrate, add it cold to the already boiled water to protect it's delicate flavor.

If you filter it through an actual paper coffee filter it will remove the oils and acids and makes it so smooth you will love black coffee again.

It is great for recipes like chocolate cake too, great mocha flavor.

KayeKaye - that's a great idea for the coffee concentrate, for people who have a French Press and want coffee every day, and fast!

One thing that our stove-top percolator has over that, though, is the aroma. Mmmmm! And as I said before, for some reason, my husband actually likes a little bitterness.
