A hot day's coffee

I enjoy a cup or two of coffee every day, but on hot day drinking hot coffee just does not seem so tempting.

When I lived alone I found it difficult to make just one cup of coffee, so I always had some coffee left. After allways having trouble throwing away the excess coffee I tried freezing it and it turned out to be a real good idea. What I do is that I make espresso, you could also make very strong regular coffee, and then I pour it into an icecube tray.

I put the icecube tray containing the coffee in the freezer and wait for a few hours or longer. Once it's frozen I pour a glass almost full of milk and then I add few coffee ice cubes in.

When the coffee cubes start to melt the coffee stays on the top part of the milk glass and when you drink it in a good pace you will allways have a good amount of coffee with your milk. I don't use any sugar with my ice coffee, I think the milk itself is sweet enough, but you could, or if you have some flavoured syrup you could use that.



  1. Oh how I wish I could still drink coffee! That looks so good!

  2. What's in the coffee that's not good for you? Have you tried decaf? Althought I guess it's easier just not to dring coffee than trying to make it work for you.

  3. It's the caffeine, but something else as well. My system can no longer tolerate either tea or coffee. Sigh.

  4. Too bad. Hope you have found an alternative for coffee and tea, something that makes the same feeling of having a break and relaxing.
