"Coffee brewed slowly in cold water is less acidic than hot brewed. You can use this concentrate straight over ice or you can microwave half a mug coffee and then add half a cup of boiling water for quick hot coffee. Develop your own ratio of coffee to water for your custom brew."

I had this over ice. It's the only coffee I've ever had that actually tastes as delicious as ground coffee smells.
