Coffee ice cubes can be prepared simply by pouring cold brewed or brewed and chilled coffee into an ice cube tray and freezing it for 3-4 hours.
You can add these ice cubes to your glass the same way you would add ice cubes made of water.
But, by using ice cubes made of your favorite brew, you’ve now avoided watering down your coffee. You’ll enjoy consistent coffee flavor until the last sip!
So then, what if you like to add other flavors to your glass?
If you do like to add a little something extra to your brew, you’re not alone.
A survey conducted in 2014 revealed that most iced coffee drinkers wanted more than just cream and/or sugar in their chilly java drinks.
From vanilla, to chocolate, to hazelnut, cinnamon, pumpkin, peppermint, caramel, and more, people prefer these additions to their iced brew. Hot coffee can’t have all the fun, right?!
So, will adding ice cubes made only of your selected brew tame those other additions?
Hmmm, perhaps. So, why not add those flavors as you freeze your coffee into cubes?
Including vanilla extract, chocolate, or cinnamon, for example, to your coffee as you freeze it will ensure amazing flavor all the way to the last sip when you add the frozen cubes to your chilled brew! Trust me, I’ve tried it!
In fact, there are so many ways, from simple to more complex, that you can add flavor to your java through coffee ice cubes.
