Leftover Brewed Coffee? Freeze it!

I brew my coffee every morning using an electric percolator. My mother used to make her coffee every morning out of the same pot I use today when I was growing up in the 80’s. Now, as the only coffee drinker in my home, I am usually left with leftover coffee. What can you do with leftover brewed coffee?

Break out the ice cube trays!

Freeze it! Then, you can use the frozen coffee cubes to cool down a hot cup o’ joe in the morning or you can add a few cubes to a glass of almond milk and enjoy an iced coffee on a hot summer day. Like today. 84 degrees, 64% humidity, not even 11 a.m. Yeesh!

Iced coffee

Above, I have the Vanilla Chai-Spiced Coffee from Trader Joe’s – love! My grocery store sells individual packs of flavored coffee by a company called Steep & Brew for $1.29. The package claims it makes a single pot of coffee, but that is really inaccurate! I can typically get about 4 pots of coffee out of one bag. I tend to make my coffee quite strong, too. Some of their flavors include:

    • Icing on the Cake
    • Hot Buttered Rum
    • Amaretto French Roast
    • Chocolate Nirvana
    • Vanilla Taffy
    • Irish Whiskey & Cream
