I've tried cold-brew and also prefer hot coffee brewed strong into ice;
usually Kenya or Ethiopia.  Brewing into ice retains most of the attributes
in a hot version.  I usually brew a batch to take with me when going to the
movies, since I'm not a soda drinker.  Here are my proportions, the Alcatraz
reference is to an Ethiopia Jimma batch I brewed that almost made me miss
the ferry for an overnight Alcatraz trip, lots of fun.

Iced Chemex
40 g Coffee
283 g Water
196 g Ice (~8 cubes)

Double-batch "Alcatraz" iced coffee
80 g Coffee
566 g Water
392 g Ice (~16 cubes)

Single-Serve Iced Aeropress
14 g coffee
100 g water
70 g ice (~3 ice cubes)


Pecked out on my mobile phone.
