Oh, my first blog post. Naturally, it needs to be about coffee.

If you know me from my other life you know I am no stranger to a blog, I love dogs, and I am 100% fueled by coffee. I love coffee all the ways: Latted, mochaed, steamed, dripped, poured over. Lost millennials, I also like it iced. It's such a smooth way to drink up a cup of joe. Too bad it is such a big pain to get a nice, rich, velvety, decedent concoction.

Oh does it?

The answer is no, it doesn't. If you're new to my life (Hey! Hi! Welcome!), you might now know that I have recently left my day job to be a full time creative entrepreneur. I have found time to enjoy the little things, and one of those teeny joys is pour over coffee. Pour Over Coffee is a process where hot water (195-205 degrees is literally poured over medium-course grounds. This results in a bright, flavorful, intense cup of coffee. I brew a mini pot of this every morning, which gives me a wonderful cup right away, first thing in the morning...and afternoon as it cools.

I like this method because it naturally is stronger, which means it holds up against the ice very well. I hope you like it, too!


Yield: 24 ounces of coffee


  • 4 tablespoons of freshly ground medium to dark coffee
  • 24 ounces of filtered water

Equipment needed:

  • Pour Over Cone (I like this one)
  • Filter (I use just a regular paper filer)
  • A method for boiling water
  • Carafe (like this one)


  1. Measure out 24 ounces of water into the boiling apparatus
  2. Place the filter into the cone and put the cone over the carafe. Scoop the grounds into the filter
  3. One the water boils, remove from heat and pour over the grounds until they are saturated. Let the water flow, and repeat until all the water is used.
  4. Drink a cuppa now (if desired), and pour the rest over ice.

Did you try it? What do you think?
