File this under “Late to the Game” (as in, I was late to catch on to this concept!). My first encounter with coffee ice cubes in my iced coffee was when we were in Sayulita, Mexico earlier this year for the wedding of one of my best friend. The iced soy latte you see to the left here was a coffee revelation. Good, strong coffee that doesn’t get watery and diluted as the ice melts? What’s not to like!
I’ve been meaning and wanting to make this for some time now, but it’s been one of those things that I tend to think of at inopportune times. Finally the other day when at Trader Joes, I picked up a tin of their Vanilla Chai-Spiced Coffee and headed home with iced coffee on the brain. Into the french press went the coffee grounds as the electric kettle brought water to a boil, and I got a large glass jar and ice cube tray ready for the prepared coffee. Then, this weekend, with the coffee well chilled and cubes well frozen, those two along with some coconut milk made for a very refreshing beverage that did not get watered down as time went on! Absolutely the best way to enjoy iced coffee.
