As I thought debetha - it depends on the grind of the coffee beans, obviously finer is better.  I fold my chux over for better straining.

Glad you girls have got it worked out ;D ;D ;D.   I haven't made any since last year and haven't had time just now. Thanks a million.

Just landed here from the brownie milk link and thought I would add my thoughts as they happen lol

You could try using coffee filters in a funnel to drain off the coffee.

These are relatively cheap to buy in packs - I use them for oil if I have been shallow frying the kids nuggets (Mr T's recipe). They aren't in there long and I just strain it off and use it next time. Keep it in a separate bottle  ;)

Hi, I just saw this thread and I am a bit excited about making it! I love iced coffee!

I have a very stupid question to ask before I go ahead and do it...the recipe says 1 1/2 cups of ground coffee. Does that mean actual coffee beans ground up? Only asking because it sounds like a lot! (so does it mean the coffee isn't diluted in water at that stage?)

Thanks for any help you can share! I'm going to try this!!! Tomorrow is going to be a warm day...I think an iced coffee will be perfect!  :)

Yes that's correct blackwood, I don't have a coffee machine so I just buy those already ground from the supermarket. You end up with a concentrated syrup which you top up with milk for an iced coffee.  Have a good read of all the comments in regard to straining it.

Cookie do you think a plunger would do for the draining of the coffee or would there be to much sediment. .?.
