preferred beans for cold brewed coffee

Are there coffee beans specifically made for cold brewing/extraction? are certain roasts/geographies better for cold brewing? Or, is it really just trial and error and finding what you personally like?

I know about Starbucks iced coffee blend
but since they suggest brewing hot and pouring over ice, I know they aren't the ones to go to.
If it matters, my cold brewing method is to take about a cup to a cup and half of course grounds, then water to fill up a two quart pitcher. I let it sit for 12-18 hours and then I strain. I don't make something super concentrated then add it 1:1 with water - I just fill a glass half with ice, fill it up with coffee, and then add a teaspoon of half and half.
