How To Make Iced Coffee At Home

What Is Iced Coffee?

Iced coffee is a type of coffee beverage brewed normally and then cooled generally by simply pouring it over ice or into ice cold milk.

7 Steps On How To Make Iced Coffee At Home

1. Use fresh coffee beans.

Don’t use stale beans so avoid buying your beans on sale. Buy fresh beans at a coffee shop where you can buy only the amount you need for the occasion.

2. Brew your coffee with Hot water

Hot coffee tastes different than cold coffee. So to get an idea of how your coffee will taste cold let a hot cup cool to room temperature.

This little test will help you decide what tastes perfect to you.

3. Brew it strong.

Brew your coffee on the strong side as it will be weakened by the ice.

To keep from diluting your drink, try turning your leftover coffee into ice cubes.

Use these in the place of regular ice cubes to keep your drink chilled.

4. Use fresh ice.

Ice has a tendency to get stale if it sits in the freezer unused for too long.

If you’re wondering whether your ice is helping or hurting your iced coffee, it’s easy to test:

let a few cubes melt and come to room temperature, then taste the resulting water. If it’s the water you would want to drink by the glassful, you’re in good shape. If not, toss out the old ice and make fresh. If it still tastes stale, buy a bag of ice, the cost is worth the boost in flavor.

5. Don’t use burned coffee for your iced coffee.

Saving leftover coffee for the iced beverage is often fine, but don’t be tempted to use the dregs of a burnt pot. If it doesn’t taste good hot, it definitely won’t taste good cold

6. Add some zip to your iced coffee.

Add fruits like strawberries, oranges, blueberries or even cherries and spices like nutmeg, cinnamon

This a great way to perk up your drink and your day.

The important thing is to have fun with it!

Try lots of new things. Vary your usual routine.

The worst that can happen is you won’t like it. You can always try something else!

If you’re short on time and don’t have a stash of reconstituted coffee available, try this recipe using instant coffee.
