Perfect Iced Coffee

When It comes to coffee I can honestly stand up and say “My name is Nikki and I’m an addict”.  I drink it in the morning, evening and afternoon.  I am completely aware this is not the healthiest addiction but I have no plans to stop anytime soon :).  The one draw back to constantly drinking coffee Is the brushing of my teeth after every cup to ensure I won’t get coffee drinkers mouth.  So when warm temps roll in I’m delighted the opportunity to sip out of a straw and give my teeth a break.

This easy iced coffee is a perfect at home alternative to expensive chain coffee shops but taste much better and makes enough for several days.



1lb coffee
10 cups of water
ice cubes
syrup of your choice
creamer of your choice


In a large bowl, pour 10 cups of water over 1lb of coffee and stir well.  Cover the coffee with saran wrap over night.  Strain the coffee using a strainer lined with cheese cloth or paper towels.  Strain the coffee at least twice to ensure all coffee grounds are removed.

Place the coffee in a pitcher or carafe with an air tight lid and store in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.


In a tall glass, add ice cubes and pour in coffee
Add 1 tbls or more if you prefer a sweeter drink of syrup
Add 1 tbls of creamer I prefer flavored creamer, but any creamer will do.
