Gevalia Kaffee tastes fantastic!  Some coffee brands that I have tried can be a little too bitter for iced coffees.  But, Gevalia has a smooth finish.  And it has quite a kick to it!

Confession: Coffee is as necessary to me as Food, Air and Water!

I wasn’t always that way.  Coffee is an obsession that developed after I had my daughter.  Coffee is the only reason I survived that first year being a parent!

I used to buy iced coffees at my local drive-thru coffee joint.  But at $5 a pop, a daily coffee habit gets really expensive really fast!

So I figured out how to make cold brewed coffee that would be as good {better} than the iced coffee that I had been buying on a daily basis.  Now I only buy iced coffees if it is absolutely necessary.  I prefer my own home brewed coffee.  Especially because I can choose a quality gourmet coffee like Gevalia.

Stop by your local Walmart for Gevalia Gourmet Coffee! #CookinComfort  #CollectiveBias

Since you are making your own cold brewed coffee, you might as well make your own homemade coffee creamer too!  Vanilla Cardamom Coffee Creamer is unique and unbelievably tasty.  And, Homemade Coffee Creamer is really easy to make.

Cold Brew Coffee is simple to make too.  It just takes some planning.

I used 6 Tb Traditional Roast Gevalia Kaffee and 3½ cups Filtered Water.  That makes quite a potent coffee brew.  So if you prefer your coffee to be mild, start with 4 Tb.

Combine the coffee and water in a 34 oz mason jar.  Seal and refrigerate overnight.  In the morning, place a fine mesh strainer over a large measuring cup or bowl.  Place a regular coffee filter into the strainer and pour the coffee mixture into the filter.  You will need to pour it in 2-3 stages.  Transfer the filtered coffee into a clean jar or container.

  2. Oh-my-word!! That looks so delish!! I wish I still drank coffee. #client

  3. Where can I find cardamom pods? This sounds
    Absolutely lush and so much less than my normal 2-3
    Cold brew coffee drinks I buy in the mornings on my
    Way to work. Any info on where to find them I’d appreciate
    Greatly! Thanks Nicole 🙂

      Hi Mandy! I bought my cardamom pods at World Market. But, you could also try a natural foods store or anywhere that has a large spice section.

  4. Thats 2- 3 coffee drinks per week….not daily. lol
    Correction….my bad.

  5. I could definitely use this as an afternoon pick me up – it looks so refreshing!

    • Nicole Harris says:

      Thanks Deb! I don’t know when I need coffee more … when I first wake up in the morning or during my afternoon slump 😀

  6. Christine @ Mama Papa Barn says:

    Wow, I am newly in love with cardamom. Drink looks delicious.

    • Nicole Harris says:

      Thanks Christine! I really am in love with the Vanilla Cardamom combo! It goes very well with coffee.

  7. I love a good iced coffee! Looks delicious! #client

  8. Karin says:

    If I don’t have cardamon pods, can I substitute ground cardamon?

    • Nicole Harris says:

      Yes, it may be difficult to get all of the ground cardamom strained out. If you don’t mind that it should be fine. I would start with just a pinch though because it will be much stronger than the pods.

Speak Your Mind
