Cold brew coffee

Hey, it’s summer. And surprise! It’s hot! Well, it’s not that hot *today* but it was stupidly hot last week, and we have another bout of 40°C weather coming up early next week. What to do when it’s already 30°C at 7am and getting a bit too warm for coffee? Never fear coffee addicts, there’s [...]
