AWESOME ICED COFFEE

I love to drink coffee. It is a serious problem. So much so, that I have had to start making more financially responsible decisions when it comes to my caffeine consumption.

I like to drink my coffee iced, which means that it has to be made a little bit stronger. I like to use dark or bold roast coffee grounds, because this will make it strong enough when the ice starts to melt in your drink (plus there is extra caffeine!). Now, you can't just rely on the coffee being stronger, you must brew it stronger as well. Nobody likes watery coffee.

I like to brew a whole pitcher at a time, so that I have enough for the week. You will use a standard drip brew coffee maker,  and will brew it hot. I fill my machine up to the 12 cup mark with water, and then add in 3/4 cup coffee grounds to a filter.

When it is done brewing, pour the hot coffee into a pitcher, and let it sit out to cool off. When it is room temperature, put it in the fridge and it is ready to enjoy!

When you go to use your cold coffee, make sure you fill the glass or travel cup with ice. Add cream or sugar to your taste. I've found that half and half is the best, because the coffee is still strong, but the drink is creamy and delicious :)


This is the travel cup that I use every day. In my opinion, iced coffee always tastes better when you drink it through a straw :)
