Lately, the number one question I have been asked is how to make iced coffee using a Keurig® brewer. I am always happy to answer but inside I am thinking…its so self explanatory…ice, coffee, brew, done. Then I remember in this day and age consumers expect things to be complicated! I am here to re assure you, making iced coffee in a Keurig® brewer actually is as simple as it seems.
- First, fill a large plastic cup (do not follow my example and use glass - it can crack) to the tippy top with ice.
- Next, choose your favorite extra bold K-Cup roast®. Tullys’s Hawaiian Blend is rapidly becoming my first choice to brew over ice, maybe because it is quite appropriate for a summer beverage! Another top pick is Dark Magic.
- Finally, brew your extra bold K-Cup® on the lowest water setting of your Keurig® brewer, directly into the cup filled with ice.
I told you there was nothing to it! Perhaps a contributing factor to the confusion is the special “Brew Over Ice” K-Cup® pods that you may have seen in the marketplace. Those are certainly fine to use but, by no means required. You can brew any Keurig® K-Cup® or tea over ice and have the same results. I prefer using an extra bold K-Cup® because I like to taste coffee in my coffee! As with anything relate to Keurig it is your preference.
