Whew! It is hot out there! No better way to beat the heat than with an iced coffee. Only probem is that after a few sips the nice strong coffee taste is gone and what remains is a watered down mess. I will share with you my secret for making a perfect iced coffee.
First start with a good strong coffee. A french roast or a good medium roast like our Sienna Roast from Waterfront Roasters works well. Make yourself a full pot in the morning, have your cup of hot coffee…you know you can’t start your day without it!
Pour half of the remaining coffee into a clean ice cube tray that you will now dedicate solely to making coffee cubes…trust me, you will be doing this a lot! Put the rest of the coffee in the refrig to cool.
Now, wait for the cubes to freeze. (This is the hardest part).
Once frozen, pop out and fill your favorite tall glass with cubes.
Add sweetener and milk or cream to taste.
Finish by filling glass with the cold coffee, stir and enjoy! Of course, if this seems like too much work, just come to Chocolations and we will do it for you!
