Coffee Ice Cubes

Make these coffee ice cubes simply by filling an ice cube tray with coffee from your SG220 and freezing it over night. Prepare coffee as you normally would and pour over the coffee ice cubes. When the ice cubes melt, they won’t dilute the iced coffee flavor. If you prefer, you can also pour milk or creamer over the coffee ice cubes for a refreshing treat.
