Snackshot of the Day: Kyoto-Style Iced Coffee

Photos of all things food and drink from The Daily Meal
Try the Kyoto-style iced coffee at Blue Bottle.

The Daily Meal's editors, contributors, and readers dig into some pretty great restaurants, festivals, and meals. There's not always enough time to give a full review of a restaurant or describe in depth why a place, its food, and the people who prepare it are noteworthy, so Snackshot of the Day does what photographs do best, rely on the image to do most of the talking.

Today's Snackshot is of iced coffee. It was on this day in 1817 that coffee was first planted in Hawaii. Without coffee, we wouldn't have iced coffee. And without iced coffee, we wouldn't have Kyoto-style iced coffee. This particular type of coffee is made by dripping room-temperature water over ground coffee. This process lasts for eight hours, and then the coffee is diluted over ice. Kyoto-styled iced coffee is a favorite at Blue Bottle Coffee Company.
