Iced Coffee

Making iced coffee seems easy, but it really isn't quite so simple. It's harder than you think to get it right. Often iced coffee is either too watered down, still warm, or even too acidic. So, how can you make the perfect glass of refreshing iced coffee? Here are some tips and tricks.


Start With The Right Coffee

Make sure your iced coffee is full of flavor by starting with the right coffee. Choose one of our Iced Coffee Blends to ensure your iced coffee has the rich flavor you've come to expect. Each of these coffee is extraordinarily flavorful and made to still retain its fabulous flavor even when poured over ice.

Go A Little Stronger

When brewing your coffee for iced coffee, go a little stronger. Make your coffee a little more concentrated to stand up to the ice as it melts into your drink. If you're also adding milk (or a milk substitute) to your iced coffee, you will need to be prepared for that as well.

Sweeten The Right Way

There's nothing worse than the crunch of sugar when drinking your iced coffee. It's hard to melt sugar into a cold beverage. Unless you are using a finely granulated sugar or a sugar substitute, use a simple syrup instead.


Chill With Flavor

Use flavored ice cubes in your iced coffee. If you freeze leftover coffee into ice cubes, you can chill your iced coffee and not be concerned about watering it down. You can also use this method to add other subtle flavors to your coffee. Try orange, mint, or chocolate.

Make Ahead

Save time and ensure your coffee has cooled enough by making it ahead of time. The cooler your coffee is, the less it will melt the ice cubes. You could even refrigerate your coffee for added chill factor.



Cold Brew

By now, we know the difference between cold brew and iced coffee. Cold brew can be served on ice, but it can also be served hot. Just a quick recap, cold brew is the method of brewing, not the method of serving. You can use a specialty blend like one of these or any coffee (as long as it isn't flavored) and use it to make cold brew.

Cold brewing extracts all the delicious flavor of the coffee while leaving behind any of the compounds which cause bitterness. Simply add your coffee grounds and water to your brewing vessel. A plastic or glass container is best (not metal). Give the mixture a stir, cover, and let it sit in a cool place for 12-24 hours. This makes a strong coffee concentrate.

You can use a mason jar, a French press, a Toddy Maker, or any other glass or plastic container with a lid. Plan ahead and use something that you can easily remove the grounds. Once you add your water and grounds to your container, give them a stir to ensure all the grounds have been wet. The best grind for your cold brew coffee grounds is coarse. If you buy your coffee pre-ground, choose French press grind as it is more coarse than drip and espresso.

After allowing the coffee and water mixture to sit for the allotted time, strain out the grounds and store your concentrate tightly lidded in the refrigerator for up to 10 days.

Dilute your cold brew 2 to 1 with cold or hot water for serving. For an incredible iced coffee, serve it over ice. Prepare it to your liking with sweetener and milk (or milk substitute). Enjoy! Add even more refreshment to your iced cold brew by using sparkling water to dilute your cold brew concentrate.

Grinding Coffee:

Grinding your beans just prior to brewing results in a much stronger and fresher flavor. The type of grind you use should correspond to the way you brew your coffee. You should use the finest grind possible for your brew method without going too fine.


Featured Products: Brewing

Choosing a fresh-roasted gourmet coffee is only half the battle when making a superior cup. The brewing method you use can be just as important.

Cold Brew Coffee

The toddy maker uses an unusual cold-brewing method that creates a coffee concentrate. This concentrate is then mixed with hot water to make coffee.

The concentrate can be stored in a refrigerator and used to make one cup at a time if you so desire. This method makes for extremely low-acid coffee, which is recommended for coffee drinkers with stomach conditions.

Featured Products: Storage

How you store your freshly roasted coffee can mean the difference between a deliciously brewed cup with amazing flavor and a bland cup that just doesn't satisfy. Keep your home-brewed coffee tasting as fresh as when it first arrived on your doorstep with the proper storage solution.

Once coffee beans are roasted, their freshness immediately begins to decline. If the beans are also ground, the freshness degrades even faster. Air, light, and moisture work to make your coffee taste weak and flavorless. To keep your coffee as fresh as possible, consider keeping it in a coffee vault to retain that delicious coffee taste.

There are many misconceptions about the best way to store and maintain roasted coffee.
