7 Tips for Making Great Iced Coffee


7 Tips for Making Great Iced Coffee

Summer is almost here and most days it is too hot for a hot bowl of java juice. Here are some tips to help you make good iced coffee.

Start with fresh coffee beans. Good iced coffee is never made from seed, so avoid buying beans for sale. If you don't always drink iced coffee, consider buying fresh beans at a coffee shop where you only buy the quantity you need for the occasion.

2. Try the taste. Hot coffee tastes different than cold. To get an idea of ​​how cold your coffee tastes, cool a warm cup to room temperature. This little test will help you decide what is ideal for you.

3. Use fresh ice. Ice tends to be damaged if it is not used in the freezer for a long time. If you're wondering if your ice cream has helped soothe your iced coffee, it's easy to try: let the few cubes melt and warm to room temperature, and then taste the resulting water. If water is what you want to drink in a glass, you are in good shape. If not, discard the old ice cream and leave it fresh. If the taste is still good, buy a bag of ice cream, the cost is worth adding to the taste.

4. This drink is strong. Make coffee on the thick side because it is weak on ice. To prevent your drink from melting, try making ice cubes out of the remaining coffee. Use it instead of ordinary ice cubes to keep your drink cool.

5. Try a cold drink. Some people object to the acidity of their cold coffee. Cold brewing can significantly reduce the acid content of coffee (the same coffee reduces the acidity to the full pH point compared to hot brewing). Place 3/4 cup of ground coffee in a quarter mason jar, pour water over and stir. Cover and put in the fridge for 12 hours. Select the resulting concentration through a coffee filter to extract the grinders. When you are ready to drink, add water to taste. You can even heat the reconstituted drink and make a quick cup of hot, low-acid coffee.

6. Do not use roasted coffee for your iced coffee. Storing leftover coffee for iced drinks is usually good, but don't be tempted to use leftovers in a burnt pot. If it doesn't taste hot, it doesn't taste cold at all.

7. Add a zipper to your iced coffee. Adding fruits such as strawberries, oranges, blueberries or even cherries and herbs such as nutmeg, cinnamon or cardamom is a great way to improve your drink and your day. The most important thing is to enjoy! Try many new things. Change your usual routine. The worst happens because you don't like it. You can always try something else!
