Verdict – definitely requires practice. If you’re going to strain with a paper towel, don’t fold it at all. I suggest securing it over the lid of whatever you’re straining it into with a rubber band. It is very good iced coffee!

    I love the THINK sign. What a great thing to put up in a classroom. I have been dying to tried cold brewed coffee. A couple friends have tried it and loved it so I think it's about time to do it myself.
