Iced Coffee Drink

Do you remember that I promised you our ice coffee recipe?  Well, here it is (finally!)!

For a recap regarding how to make coffee concentrate, you start with a bunch of ground coffee (we grind our own using this lovely grinder from Charlie's mom - as you can see it fits on any wide-mouth canning jar - so handy!).

Mix the coffee grinds with an equal amount of water, and let the mixture sit for about 24 hours.  Then you drain the mixture and collect the coffee concentrate.  We use our Aeropress to extract as much coffee as possible.

To make your iced coffee drink: fill a glass (or canning jar) with ice.  Here I am using a wide mouth pint jar.  Add 1.5 to 2 ounces of the coffee concentrate.

Next, add 1.5 to 2 ounces of water,  three ounces of milk, and sweetening of your choice: options are sugar, honey, sweetener or sweetened condensed milk.  We like the sweetened condensed milk the best, but it is a little more challenging to mix in well.  


If you are feeling generous, you can even share your delicious iced coffee with that special someone in your life....

Easy Iced Coffee

  • 1.5-2 ounces coffee concentrate 
  • 1.5 to 2 ounces water
  • 2 -3 ounces milk or half and half or both
  • sweetener of choice, to taste (sugar, honey, sweetener or sweetened condensed milk)
Fill a glass with ice.  Add coffee concentrate, water, milk and sweetener to taste.  Add a straw and enjoy! 

Of course, there are so many ways to make iced coffee.  How do you make yours?
