Perfect Your Next Glass of Iced Coffee with Cold brew cubes

I’m not a fan of hot coffee.  Don’t ask me why I can’t explain it to you.  It’s just one of those things, like people who don’t like to eat fruit.  Therefore I only drink iced coffee.  If you are like me the one thing I get really tired of is making the perfect cup of coffee only to have it trashed by melting ice.

When I was in college I had a small obsession with those frapp-chocka-chino things which is exactly where my freshman 15 came from.  That year, my friend and I met up for coffee one night and I was complaining that I really liked cold coffee but the frapp-chocka-chino things were too high in calories.  So this friend (who happened to be barista) told me to try a carmael machiatto.  It was love at first sip and half the calories.

Over the years I’ve tailored my taste to enjoy a low calorie iced coffee.  I’ve also perfected my own recipe over time.  In this post I’ll share a link to my weekly supply cold brew coffee recipe and show you how I make my own cold brew coffee ice cubes which help me achieve the most perfect cups of coffee I’ve ever had the pleasure of gulping sipping.

Regular ice cubes melt down over time leaving a watery layer on top of my perfectly concentrated cold brew.  That’s no good.  Keep in mind that these are also perfect for cooling down a cup of hot joe that’s a little too hot without waiting around.

Here’s how I made my own cubes and you can too!
