					How to Make Iced Coffee

Whether you want to make it special or just have some leftover coffee from breakfast,
iced coffee can be a refreshing afternoon treat. If it's really hot outside and you want to
cool down but still get your caffeine and coffee flavor, iced coffee is the way to go.


Things You'll Need

      Pitcher or carafe
      Dark-roasted coffee grounds
      Sweetener
      Coffee maker
      Ice
      10- to 12-oz. glass
      Milk
      Water
      Tall plastic cups

   1. Standard Iced Coffee
           o   1

               Brew a pot of fresh coffee using 2 tablespoons of dark-roasted ground
               coffee per cup.
         o   2

             Transfer the hot coffee to a carafe or pitcher.

         o   3

             Let the coffee stand at room temperature for 3 to 5 hours, or refrigerate it
             until cold, about 1 1/2 to 3 hours.

         o   4

             Fill a tall glass with ice cubes.

         o   5

             Pour the chilled coffee into the glass.

         o   6

             Stir the coffee to equalize its temperature. Add milk if you like.

  2. Quick Iced Coffee
         o   1

             Brew a pot of fresh coffee using 3 to 4 tablespoons of dark-roasted ground
             coffee per cup.

         o   2

             Add sugar to the hot coffee if you would like to sweeten the whole pot of
             coffee; it will dissolve more easily in hot coffee than in iced coffee.

         o   3

             Fill tall, plastic (not glass!) glasses with ice cubes and pour the hot coffee
             over them.

Tips & Warnings
     Iced coffee is best with darker-roast coffee blends. Experiment to find the one you
      like best.
     Make ice cubes out of room-temperature coffee. Store them in the freezer and
      make undiluted iced coffee any time.
     For a decadent version of iced coffee, stir sweetened condensed milk into warm
      coffee before pouring it over ice.
   Never put a pot of hot coffee directly in the refrigerator. The rapid change in
    temperature can crack the glass.
