Keep your iced coffee strong by using frozen coffee ice cubes.

Frozen coffee cubes for use in iced coffee drinks.

This is a short and simple trick for anyone who likes to make iced coffee at home.

Myself, I’m a fan of iced coffee when the weather is hot. But what I don’t like is how the melting ice cubes dilute the taste of the coffee. If you think about it, the melting ice turns to water and slowly dilutes the taste.

A really simple answer to this problem is to use frozen coffee ice cubes.

All you do it wait until you have some leftover coffee in your carafe at the end of the morning, and then pour the coffee into an ice tray and leave it in the freezer for a while. Voila, instant frozen coffee cubes.

Of course, you don’t want to use the burned-out remains of coffee that has stood for hours on a hotplate. I use the coffee left over in the thermal carafe we use. If your coffee has been sitting on a hotplate, you would be better off making a fresh brew, letting it cool and then adding it to the ice tray.

Now, when you make some cold coffee, you don’t add regular ice cubes…you add the frozen “coffee cubes”. And when they melt, the strength of your coffee remains the same.

Like I said, this is a quick and easy tip for anyone who wants their iced coffee to actually taste like coffee right to the end of the glass.

And, of course, once you have a supply of frozen coffee cubes, there are other things you can try…like making coffee slushies.
