Peet’s Baridi Blend made to be iced

If the iced coffee you make at home is simply stale coffee poured over ice, Peet’s has broken new grounds for you. Its Baridi (Swahili for “cold”) Iced Coffee Blend ($10.50 for a 12-ounce bag) is an East African blend specifically to be iced. Using a drip coffeemaker or a coffee press, the brew is dark and strong with a slightly nutty hint. With the longer but more interesting press method, you fill the maker with grounds and water, stir it up, and let it sit in the fridge for as long as two days, if you like. Then press the grounds to the bottom and you have a bright-tasting coffee for mixing with milk or water or drinking straight. No ice needed. Cold is perfect for these dog days. Available in beans or ground at Peet’s Coffee & Tea locations and Stop & Shop, or go to www.peets.com ($15.95 for a
1-pound bag).
