The Best at Home Iced Coffee

Make the best and easiest iced coffee at home in a few simple steps

My toxic trait is thinking I need a coffee every time I leave my house, run errands, or really just wake up! Iced coffee is my go-to. I don’t mind if it’s 30 degrees outside or 90 degrees. I will pick cold coffee over hot 99% of the time.

In 2020, I learned to make the best at home iced coffee. I ran through several different recipes I found online from using hot coffee that had cooled overnight to pouring hot coffee over ice. It just never quite hit the same as the store bought drinks I was craving.

I soon found out that cold brew was the key! Cold brew produces much lower acidity and bitterness than coffee brewed with hot water. I was happy to get a cold brew pitcher as a gift, and I have been using it ever since. Thankfully, the process could not be more simple.

The pitcher I use is a Takeya brand. It produces the smooth taste that really gives your iced drink it’s delicious flavor. You simply fill the center mesh filter with 10-12 tablespoons of your favorite coffee grounds. I usually choose French Vanilla Dunkin Donuts blend.

Next, you fill the pitcher full of cold water, screw on the lid that is attached to the filter in the middle, and let brew over night in the refrigerator. This one pitcher usually gets me through one week of making a glass each morning. Very little prep time, for very delicious results!


Step 1

Choose your favorite tall glass. Fill glass 3/4 full of ice.

Step 2

Retrieve the cold brew pitcher you prepped the night before from the fridge. Fill your glass up about 1/2 to 3/4 full of cold brew depending on how strong you want the final flavor.

Step 3

Fill remaining 1/2 to 1/4 of the glass with your choice of milk. I generally use the Almond Breeze Hint of Honey Almond Milk.

Step 4

Add a splash of your favorite flavored creamer. My creamer of choice is typically a non-dairy Starbucks Creamer or Planet Oat Carmel Oatmilk Creamer.

Step 5

Finally, add a straw for stirring and sip the best at home iced coffee you have made to date!

Happy sipping!
