Works for Me Wednesday: Coffee Cubes

This is a quickie entry this week, but great for summer.

I have never been much of a fan of iced coffees, because the ice dilutes the coffee. I drink my coffee strong and black.

However, except for letting the children have small sips or cafe au lait, I am the only one who drinks it in our house. Since I still usually end up making a bit more than I can drink in a day, I use the dead coffee in the pot to make frozen coffee ice cubes in our ice trays. When they are frozen, I put them in a freezer bag to store them in the freezer. I use these for iced coffee drinks, or in chocolate milk. Even Rich likes that.

Finding a second use for old coffee that tastes good works for me!

Excellent idea! I'm going to have to do that. Thanks for posting.
Another thing you could do is make cold-brew coffee. It's almost like making tea, and "Seattle's Best" makes the only iced coffee I'll drink this way. Essentially, you take an empty tea-bag, fill it with coffee grounds, and let the coffee grounds soak in water over night. You end up with a concentrated coffee mixture. Dilute it with water, and it will be the best iced coffee you've ever had; to me it's comparable to the difference between hot tea that I've let get cold, and sun tea that's set out all day. Soooo good. I wonder if you could even use your old grounds for this... hm...
What an awesome idea! Going to try that today. Thanks!
I cold press my coffee--coffee brewed cold is always better than hot coffee chilled. However, I may have to try the coffee cube thing with the left over hot brewed coffee. Thanks!
This is awesome!! I always have some coffee left over. Great idea. Thanks. Also, love the music - Peter Gabriel "In your Eyes". GREAT!!! I love this song, thanks.
That is such a fantastic idea! I wonder if we have any ice trays? We have a (piece of crap) automatic ice maker, so I never make ice - but wow. That's an awesome idea!

Thanks for entering the stroller contest on my blog! Good luck!
