There are many things to love about iced coffee, but the last few watered-down sips are not one of them. If watery coffee has got you disappointed, you should know that there is a simple solution: coffee ice cubes.
Coffee ice cubes are what you need to stock in your freezer from now until the end of the warm weather ― along with iced coffee popsicles, of course. They’ll guarantee you a strong cup of refreshing, never watered-down coffee that’ll keep you buzzing throughout the long summer days.
Here’s the first thing you need to know: Coffee ice cubes are just as easy to make as ice, so there’s really no reason not to have them stocked.
This is how it’s done:
- Brew a pot of coffee ― or buy some that's already made. If you really want to get fancy, make a batch of cold brew for these ice cubes.
- Pour the coffee into the ice cube trays. We recommend the silicone ones over the plastic kind, because they’re so much easier to pry out.
- Freeze until, well ... frozen. It should take about 4 hours.
- Use as needed to cool down a cup of iced coffee. Or use them to make a caffeinated milkshake.
This is going to be the best iced coffee season yet.
