I sometimes make iced coffee by placing a glass mason jar filled with ice into my single serve coffee maker and letting it brew / fill with hot coffee. I include a metal spoon inside the jar to act as a kind of heat sink and prevent the glass from breaking due to thermal stress. But should I bother? Does that spoon actually do anything?
Put hot water with coffee (in proportion) in a mason jar or a mug. Stir well. Immersion brew for 4 minutes (like you would in a french press). Pour the whole thing into a pourover cone lined with filter. What would/ is this style of brewing called? I can't find any info on this-- am I missing a memo somewhere? Is this too simple to be true?
