What is your favorite coffee drink? If you are like me, then you cannot end your day without gulping a glass of iced coffee. A glass of iced coffee, along with a generous amount of sugar and milk, makes my days brighter. Why do you prefer this particular drink?

Whichever the reason why you drink iced coffee, there is one thing that must not change for you to enjoy your brew. You must prevent it from watering down. But how can you prevent that? It is simple! You just need to have some coffee ice cubes, and you can prepare them at home. To make coffee ice cubes, you only need a freezer and freshly brewed coffee. See the recipe below for more information.

Self-proclaimed coffee drinker. I would, on a typical day, start my day by grinding my coffee with a manual grinder and use a French Press as a starter (2 cups), then a pour-over in the afternoon (4 cups). I had my fair share as a barista but I prefer to drink it, not serve it.
