Coffee Cottage or Cottage Coffee


‘Does everyone know I’m a coffee fanatic? But coffee might not be good for me. To that I say, it’s my only vice I have left.

It’s summer so my drink of choice is iced coffee. My favorite beans are from Rival Brothers in Philadelphia. They roast their beans locally and in small batches. The guys at Rivals told me how they make their cold brew so that’s how I do it. Grind the beans coarse, mix them with the right amount of water in a glass bowl and let it sit overnight or 12 hours. Then strain and there it is. Make it strong- the ice dilutes.

Well last year when William Sonoma went out of business in Ardmore, I bought a Hario Cold Water Coffee Dripper. A beautiful contraption ( always important) that makes a mellow strong concentrate cold coffee. I must admit I was intrigued when I saw it. And it just looks summery in my kitchen!

A few years ago I took my family to Duck, NC. I found the closest coffee shop and had my cup there every morning. The Treehouse Coffee Co.

It was the first time I had ever seen a cold brew water drip coffee maker and it was big!! 22 hours for that great cold brew!

Kinda a long ride for a cold brew so I’ll experiment with mine.

You can find me on my front porch with my cottage coffee.
