Brewing the Perfect Starbucks Iced Coffee Pour Over
The Gear You Need
You don’t need a lot of fancy equipment to make a great cup of Starbucks iced coffee. All you need is a pour over filter, a mug, and a spoon. You can get these items at any Starbucks or online. Make sure to get the right size filter for your mug.
The Coffee Beans
For the best flavor, you should use freshly roasted Starbucks coffee beans. They should be a medium roast and ground to a coarse consistency. This will help ensure that the coffee doesn’t get bitter or over extracted.
The water used to make iced coffee should be cold, filtered, and fresh. If you don’t have a filter, you can use bottled water or let your tap water sit in the fridge overnight.
Start by adding two tablespoons of coffee grounds to the filter. Then, pour a small amount of cold water over the grounds and let it sit for 30 seconds. This process is called “blooming” and helps release the flavor of the coffee. After 30 seconds, slowly pour the rest of the water over the grounds, making sure to saturate all of the grounds evenly.
The Final Product
Once the water is poured, let the coffee steep for 3 to 4 minutes. Then, remove the filter and pour the coffee into a mug. Add ice cubes and sweetener if desired. Enjoy your freshly brewed iced coffee!
