Cold Coffee Tips for Summer

Coffee tastes good any way you make it, but during the dog days of summer, sometimes we need cool ways to get that jolt of java. Save yourself (and your wallet) a trip to the coffee shop with our tips and cold coffee extras to help you stay cool and get your buzz on.

 

  1. Make extra-strong coffee in your Capresso coffee maker and chill it over night. When brewing coffee, use the maximum amount of ground coffee that will fit in your filter basket, but only fill the water tank halfway. This will concentrate your brew for extra strong flavor, which is important, since ice cubes dilute iced coffee. If a larger amount of brewed coffee is desired, simply repeat the process after the first batch has completed. Chill overnight and serve over ice the next day. Do not place the hot coffee carafe directly in the refrigerator as it could cause the glass to crack.

Iced Coffee

  1. Coffee Ice Cubes. Make coffee ice cubes simply by filling an ice cube tray with coffee and freezing it over night. Prepare coffee as your normally would and pour over the coffee ice cubes. When the ice cubes melt, they won’t dilute the iced coffee flavor.

More: Vanilla Ice Cubes. Make vanilla ice cubes to keep your coffee sweet and cold without getting watered down. Find a great recipe from Oh My Veggies here.

 

  1. Freeze it. For something new on a hot summer’s day, try our Frozen Coffee This drink is refreshingly easy.

Frozen Coffee

  1. Coffee Milkshake. A creamy treat you can make in minutes. If you love coffee ice cream and espresso, this drink is perfect drink to cool off on a warm day. Try our Coffee Milkshake for a decadent iced coffee on a sunny afternoon.

  1. Coffee Ice Cream. Take coffee milkshakes a step further. Transform your favorite drink into a cold and delicious summer treat, with the help of Capresso Grand Aroma Coffee Beans. Find our Grand Aroma Coffee Ice Cream Recipe here.

 

Additional Tips:

 

  • Always add sugar and milk to the coffee when it is still hot. The sugar will dissolve better, and the cold milk will help cool down the coffee.
  • Instead of sugar, add flavorings such as vanilla syrup, chocolate syrup, hazelnut syrup or almond extract to create a specialty iced coffee drink. The syrups will sweeten up the coffee while adding a hint of flavor. They also dissolve better in liquid than coarse sugar.
  • Try sweetened condensed milk or coconut milk for a different twist on iced coffee.
  • Want cold iced coffee without waiting? Add coffee, milk, sugar and ice to a cocktail shaker and shake. Strain iced coffee into a glass with even more ice and server.
