In this instructable I will show you how to simplify your coffee routine with coffee cubes. We've all been in a hurry, fixed a cup of coffee and then experienced the agony of not being able to drink it because it is too hot. I'm going to show you how to keep your coffee at the perfect temperature (hot or cold) without sacrificing the integrity of your coffee's flavor with watery ice cubes. Let's get started!
-A pot of room temperature coffee. I used Mexican Chiapas. (Yum)
-Your favorite creamer or flavor shot
-Ice cube tray
That's it. You should have all these things on hand if you are a coffee drinker and use ice.
Brew your coffee and wait for it to cool down. It doesn't have to be room temperature, but I find that burns are less likely if it is cooler.
This is where your personal preferences come into play. Typically people drink coffee in three basic ways.
1.Coffee with cream and sugar=cold coffee and creamer mixed together
2.Black coffee with flavor shot=cold coffee and a flavor shot
3. Black=cold coffee
I've done all three because sometimes you want cold coffee and sometimes you don't. The great thing about these cubes is that as they melt they only add flavor and more coffee to your cup.
Now that you have your mixed liquids just pour them into the ice tray.
Now that they are done you can use them how you want. If you are in a hurry and want to cool your coffee from scalding to drinkable in seconds pop in a couple of coffee cubes and you're ready to go. Want to make sure that your ice coffee ratio stays all coffee and no water to ensure that sweet coffee goodness hits your tongue then pop in a couple of coffee cubes. You will no longer have to burn your tongue or water down your coffee. It's cheap. It's easy. It's perfect. I hope you enjoy.
