Raise Your Hand If You Love Coffee
Brew your normal pot of coffee.
Prepare Ice Cube Tray. I have been collecting some fun ones like pigs and musical instruments but any will do!
Pour coffee into trays and freeze
Use immediately or store in an airtight container until it's gone time.
At some point I will learn how to make my own espresso but I feel until that time, this was a PERFECT solution for my iced coffee cravings

I found a barista online who had created an at-home version of Dutch Bros. Golden Eagle and I was hooked so I decided to give it a test drive today and it was SO good! The coffee ice cubes keep everything cold but don't water down your drink. I like to savor my beverages so this was perfect for me.
You can create any flavors you like and for a fun start collecting some random ice cube trays and then you can share iced coffees with your friends as well!
