Happy Earth Day, Earth!

It’s everyone’s favorite spring holiday, Earth Day! I’m sure you spent your weekend volunteering at your local recycling center or planting trees in your neighborhood in preparation for today. But in all seriousness, Earth Day may not be the sexiest holiday on your calendar, but it is a good time to think about your carbon footprint and how you can reduce it. We have plenty of great ways to help you “Green-ify”, from Produce Bags to Water Bottles. I’m going to take an Earth Day pledge to cut the number of plastic cups I use. I’m a coffee addict, and as soon as the weather warms up that means Iced Coffee! Instead of buying it, I’m going to treat myself to one of our new Mason Jar Tumblers and make it at home! Check out my directions below for perfect cold press coffee!

Insulated Mason Jar Tumbler, $12

Perfect Cold Press Coffee by Jess:

Fill a french press with coffee and cold water (2 Tablespoons per 6 oz of water).

Give it a good stir, cover, but don’t press the plunger.

Refrigerate overnight.

In the morning, press the plunger to strain coffee grinds and ENJOY!

***The slow brewing process and lack of heat reduces bitterness, but it’s also VITAL to use enough coffee. Most people use too little coffee which actually makes the it more bitter. Don’t believe me? Ask this guy: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K6XA7lh7P_Y
