You know you could pay Starbucks your life savings to make this for you. Or just make it yourself. You don't need electricity, no coffeemaker, no French press. Try this when camping or for when your power goes out. This is my favorite Dog Days of Summer breakfast Cook time is steeping time. Photo shows it black, so you can get a good look. I like mine iced with a splash of cream. Serve this hot or iced. Very smooth.
