If you’re a huge fan of cold beverages, but still can’t resist the delicious taste of coffee, iced coffee is probably your all-time favorite drink. If you don’t want to hit Starbucks every time you crave a cup of iced coffee, making your own is always an option, and these tips will help you do it the right way.

Fresh Beans

Your iced coffee will taste much better if you make it with fresh beans. If you want to go all-in when making this beverage, put an effort into finding beans that work best for you. Take some time to master the art of grinding your coffee beans evenly, and you’ll be wowed by the final product.

Coffee-Water Ratio

Your coffee, both iced and warm, won’t taste good if you don’t get the coffee to water ratio right. Aiming for a 1:4 to 1:8 range is your best, but it takes some time to figure this out because it all comes down to personal preference.

Coffee Cubes

Most people use ice cubes to keep their iced coffee cold for longer, but they may end up diluting the taste of your favorite beverage. To avoid this common problem, pour some coffee into your ice cube tray and use coffee ice cubes instead of regular ones.
