It’s no secret. I love coffee. Delicious, strong brewed coffee. I drink several cups in the morning and an occasional cup in the afternoon or early evening. If I ever get a tattoo, it may read “Coffee is Life”…or…you know… my kids names. 😉 Are you getting the picture? So it only makes sense that this time of year, I also enjoy a nice glass of iced coffee.
In the summertime when the afternoon sun is shining, and I am feeling like something a little cool to sip on, what could be better than iced coffee? This simple recipe is easy to make and delicious. You can make a big batch of strong brewed coffee ahead, store it in jars in the fridge, and you’re all set!
I like Laughing Whale Coffee, which is roasted right here in Lunenburg, and for this recipe I used their Morning Mantra. I’m sure any of their beans would be just as delicious and I’m going to pick up a bag of their dark roast next time to try. Laughing Whale Coffee is available at various Sobey’s stores, the Lunenburg Farmer’s Market, Shop on the Corner, Rosebay General Store, and the Chester and Mahone Bay Save Easy. You can also check out their “where to buy” for options across the Maritimes and beyond.

I brew a batch of coffee using my French Press, to keep in the fridge for my iced coffee, but I also add any leftover coffee to the jar as time goes on. Keeps you in steady supply of chilled coffee ready to be made into a delicious and simple iced coffee. Just like regular coffee, you are really making this to your own preference. I like a little cream and sugar in mine, but you may prefer it without.
