New Orleans Style Iced Coffee

I found this recipe on the back of a postcard at Blue Bottle Coffee in the San Francisco Ferry Building.  It’s a refreshing, slightly sweet, slightly creamy iced coffee.  The chicory really adds a nice depth of flavor.

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Inactive Prep Time: 10-12 hours

Serves: 12


1 lb coffee beans

1.5 oz chicory

2 quarts water


Simple Syrup


A large non-reactive pot, a pitcher, fine mesh sieve


The Cold Brewed Coffee

Grind the coffee and the chicory to a medium grind.

Pour the coffee in a large pot and cover it with 2 quarts of cold water.  Place a lid on the pot and let it sit overnight or for up to 12 hours.

Strain the coffee-chicory concentrate through a fine mesh sieve into a bowl, and then pour the concentrate into the pitcher.

The concentrate will keep for up to two weeks in the refrigerator.

The New Orleans Style Iced Coffee

Fill a tall glass with ice.  Fill the glass ¼ full with coffee concentrate, then fill the remaining space with milk.  Add about 2 teaspoons of simple syrup (or to taste).
