Fluid: Iced Coffee

August 1, 2011

I’m not exactly a morning person. I need coffee please, early and often. And in the summer, ice down my macchiato and throw it in a plastic cup – I still have work to do while all you mad-cap kids and retirees are enjoying your days at the beach.

It took me years to appreciate iced coffee, but age and experience – as well as a more enlightened palate – have converted me. It also helps to know that iced coffee is not just hot coffee poured over ice – there’s actually a technique. You shouldn’t have to add a shot of espresso to your iced coffee, and you shouldn’t have to buy a special “iced coffee” blend. (*cough* marketing ploy *cough*)

If you want to make a good iced coffee, all you need to do is this:

1) Brew your preferred coffee twice as strong as you normally prepare it.
2) Refrigerate overnight.
3) Pour over ice.
4) Enjoy.

Voila.
