The unprecedented heat wave that overtook the United States in March of this year has some already yearning for iced coffee in the early days of spring. If you are one of those iced coffee fanatics, then today’s post is just for you. Today, we unpack a great procedure for brewing perfect iced coffee from your K-Cup coffee maker.
While K-Cup iced coffee is not that different from regular iced coffee, the array of options available to K-Cup coffee drinkers truly takes iced coffee to the next level. With unprecedented choice and control of the brewing process, you can truly ensure that your iced coffee is coffee shop quality.
Make Perfect K-Cup Iced Coffee
The procedure for making excellent K-Cup iced coffee is exactly similar to making iced coffee from your standard coffee maker. Place ice in a glass, add your sweetener, then pour in your hot coffee, and add any creamer that you prefer last. What sets K-Cup coffee makers apart in this process is the ability to control the amount of coffee brewed and the strength of the coffee you select.
I highly recommend bold, dark coffees for iced coffee. They stand up to the watering down that naturally occurs as your ice melts. A good African or Sumatran coffee carries its flavor through this inevitable watering down and presents a full coffee flavor even on ice. Try Green Mountain Coffee Kenyan AA Extra Bold K-Cups or Green Mountain Coffee Fair Trade Organic Sumatran Reserve K-Cups for flavorful iced coffee that stands up to both ice and creamer without tasting watered down. If you are feeling adventurous and want the most coffee flavor you can get in your iced coffee, try Green Mountain Coffee Dark Magic Extra Bold K-Cups. The rich, blended dark roast flavor of Dark Magic K-Cups is excellent on ice.
Looking for a treat? Try a flavored K-Cup over ice to make a delicious flavored iced coffee. For a delicious vanilla iced coffee, go with Wolfgang Puck Vanilla Francaise Coffee K-Cups; the natural vanilla bean flavor of these K-Cups make a delectable treat on ice. If you’d like a mocha iced coffee, look no further than Green Mountain Coffee Donut House Chocolate Glazed Donut K-Cups; their sweet chocolate flavor makes an excellent K-Cup iced coffee. Wolfgang Puck Hawaiian Hazelnut Aloha Noisette Coffee K-Cups pack a lot of hazelnut flavor into each brew, making them a great choice for a flavored iced coffee.
K-Cup iced coffee is more convenient than iced coffee has ever been, allowing you to choose your roast, blend, or flavor at the push of a button. Impress your friends, family, and coworkers with your gourmet iced coffee drinks!
