Make Iced Coffee at Home with These Few Easy Steps


Instead of making time-consuming and costly trips to your local café each morning, consider making your iced coffee at home instead.

It’s much easier than you might think, not to mention it can be ready in minutes. With iced coffee season upon us, most of us would prefer an iced beverage in the morning over a hot one, which is why iced coffee is the coffee favorite in spring and summer. All you will need to make your own iced coffee at home is:
·         Grinded coffee beans or ground coffee
·         Ice
·         Drip Coffee maker.

Start with brewing a big batch of coffee in your drip coffee maker. There are two options from here depending on how much time you have. Either store the big coffee batch in a container and refrigerate it overnight, or use double the coffee grounds and instantly pour the coffee over ice. If you go with the instant option, the coffee won’t get watery when the ice melts because it’s double the strength of your usual coffee.

Now that you’re familiar with the steps of making your own iced coffee, there are a few extra tips to make your iced coffee taste like a barista made it. Using quality coffee beans or ground coffee is an important factor in achieving a truly delicious cup of iced coffee at home. Luckily, Coffee Cow has all your favorite brands, including Starbucks.

Another component to making a great cup of iced coffee at home is making your own iced coffee ice cubes. Simply freeze your leftover coffee and the next day, drop them into your iced coffee so that when they melt they add even more coffee flavor to your beverage.

Don’t forget the creamer!

Voila! You can now enjoy iced coffee in the comfort of your own home. Are you surprised at how easy it is?

Your Guide to Recycling K-Cups, Single-Serve Pods and Capsules

For those of us who are environmentally-conscious, brewing coffee at home with certain K-Cups, single-serve pods or capsules doesn’t exactly line up with our green beliefs. However, for those who love the convenience of K-Cups and other single-serve pods, there are ways to recycle with a little effort.

Most k-cups and other capsules are mostly made up of aluminum or plastic, and depending on the brand and manufacturer of your coffee, some might be recyclable and some may not be. To check, look for a recycling symbol on the bottom of the pod.

Keurig K-Cups 
Historically, Keurig has received the most criticism from environmentalists when it comes to recycling practices, considering up until 2016, the only way to recycle K-Cups was to separate its components. However, some K-Cups are now made out of polypropylene and the company is on the road to making all of its pods recyclable by 2020. For now, all K-Mug, K-Carafe, and Vue pods, as well as Green Mountain Breakfast Blend and Green Mountain Breakfast Blend Decaf K-Cups are recyclable.

Dolce Gusto
Dolce Gusto pods are also not technically recyclable, but there are ways to get around that. By separating the individual components, you can recycle each part of the pod. Nestle Dolce Gusto capsules Nescafe Dolce Gusto Capsules are made out of #1 and #5 plastics, so separating the pods into each category and recycling from there should make drinking Dolce Gusto coffee capsules more sustainable.

Tassimo T-Discs
Tassimo T-Disc single-serve pods are compatible with Tassimo brewing systems and are recyclable pods. The process of recycling is simple; just remove the foil, filter and coffee grounds and you’re good to go. For those looking for sustainable coffee options, we proudly carry a wide selection of Tassimo coffee products to suit a wide range of tastes.
