4 different ways to brew iced coffee

What are the different ways to brew iced coffee?

I don’t know about you, but my Instagram feed is flooded with artsy photos of mouthwatering, refreshing coffee elixirs that I am just dying to get my hands on every time my thumb hits the phone screen scrolling. They’ve got my mind running in circles of places my taste buds would rather be — drenched in iced coffee, of course. But don’t let these cravings haunt you, too! There are several ways to make iced coffee right in your own home. Let’s take a look at some of the different methods you can use. 

What are the different ways I can brew iced coffee? 

1. Flash brewed coffee

This Japanese-style coffee is brewed in a Chemex just the same as hot coffee. The main difference? The ice, of course. To make flash brewed coffee, you change up the water to coffee ratio by replacing 1/3 or ½ of the water with ice. If you want to take a whack at it, try this recipe!


2. Cold brew coffee

If you’ve got patience, and you like strong coffee, cold brew is the method for you. Need some help? Follow the best damn cold brew recipe out there and get ready for the caffeine ride of your life.

3. Coffee brewed hot, then left in the refrigerator overnight

Are you a diner coffee fan? Well, here it is, folks. Diner-style at its finest. Just brew your coffee using your favorite brewing method and toss it in the refrigerator overnight. Wake up and roll on into the diner. Hell, while you're at it, whip up something good to munch on with it! 

4. Instant cold brew coffee

If you want your iced coffee STAT, let me tell you how. Throw some strong instant coffee into a glass, mix with water. The ratio depends on how strong you’d like your end result to be. Do you want it to knock your socks off? More coffee, less water. Then, add a little creamer if you wish to, and SIP. Wasn’t that easy? Check out this recipe as recommended by Build your Bite!
