Ultimate Iced Coffee

Ultimate Iced Coffee

"Cold-brewed coffee poured over coffee ice cubes makes the best iced coffee. It takes a bit of planning, but its full, rich flavor makes the wait worthwhile. The ideal coffee for this cold drink is a blend of mid-roasted beans with moderate acid. Using a dark roast and beans high in acid produces a sharper, more bitter result."

Good recipe, tastes much better with sugar. Also, 'Sweet and Low' is extremely dangerous.

I love this recipe! The coffee ice cubes are what really make it great, I think. I've been using medium roast hazelnut coffee, pouring water on it and letting it sit overnight in a teapot while ...

This turned out really good, I used Splenda instead of sweet N low, and 2% milk! and it was perfect... I used instant coffee to make my ice cubes, and cold brewed some hazelnut flavoured grounds...

Came out very smooth and yummy. Cold brewing makes a much better ice coffee than simply refrigerating coffee brewed in a machine. I used real sugar, or agave. Most sugar substitutes are not he...

I liked the flavor! I also liked the idea of freezing coffee for ice cubes, so one doesn't water the coffee down with ice water cubes. :-}
