If you want an iced coffee as good as your favorite coffee shop makes it, try brewing it the Japanese way. Most coffee pros, like Aaron Ultimo of Ultimo Coffee or the folks behind Counter Culture Coffee, swear that the Japanese iced coffee method is the only true brewing method for the freshest-tasting iced coffee. The Japanese method of making iced coffee replaces the amount of water you use to brew with ice instead. Fill your carafe with just the right amount of ice, 8 ounces, and brew your normal pour-over coffee.That way, the coffee isn’t diluted with tons of water and keeps all of its great aromatics and taste. We love Counter Culture Coffee's tutorial on iced coffee.
