How To :: Iced Coffee At Home

On a hot day there is nothing better than an ice cold coffee to cool you down!
 But, I don't always want to hop in the car to Caffe Nero to pick up a Iced Caramel Latte, so I looked up a few ways to make my own Iced Coffee. 

I'll apologise in advance to my father, who, if he reads this, will go loopy. He used to be a Coffee Trader and I'm definitely using the wrong terminology and probably doing something reaaally wrong... sorry dad!
I personally make this using coffee granules, but I'm sure it'd be even better using proper coffee in a cafetiere, but unsurprisingly, as a student,  I don't own one!

Boil the kettle, put some coffee granules into a jug then pour the water in. Give it a minute or so after the water has finished boiling, something about burning the coffee if you do it straight away? (Again, sorry dad!)

Carefully pour the coffee into an ice cube tray and place it in the freezer. I normally leave it over night to freeze so it's ready to go in the morning. Making the ice cubes with coffee means your drink won't water down as you drink it, keeping the coffee strong.

When you're ice cubes are frozen and you're in the mood for your ice coffee; pop some ice cubes into a glass, pour in your choice of milk, let the ice cubes melt et voila! Iced Coffee! I personally like a dash of agave nectar syrup in mine as I like it slightly sweeter, but definitely go for a syrup or liquid as there's no heat to melt granules of sugar!
