CoffeeBean Chronicles - Summer Coffee - what a treat!

Well... it is now officially summer and the focus for drinking will be cold.  Ah, yes.. in the morning it is still the best way to start the day with a good cup of hot coffee but as the day progress, so does the temperature!   When it is 90 degrees or hotter and you have been working outside it is always a good idea to drink plenty of ice water but when you are finished and enjoying the fruits of your daily labor; sit down, put your feet up and and enjoy a tall glass of ice coffee.  Ice coffee can be as fancy or plain as you like it.  I prefer ice coffee over vanilla ice cream and crushed ice.  It is like a coffee slurpee but with ice cream.  AH!!!  It is so good.  Some may like ice coffee with chocolate syrup and crushed ice.  Mmmmmmmmmmm.....  that is so good and it cools you down fast.  

It is easy to make ice coffee and anyone can do it.  Make a pot of your favorite non-flavored coffee.  Flavored coffee does not taste as good cold( my opinion).  Pour the coffee in a glass or plastic pitcher and place it in the refrigerator for a 2-4 hours.  A good time to make the coffee is in the morning, so it is ready when you are in the afternoon or evening.

Add you favorite sweeter, syrup. ice cream or just drink it straight with cream.  It is a great summer drink!

Enjoy your coffee and your summer!
