When the summer heats up, coffee lovers crave something a little less steamy and a little more refreshing. Iced coffee fits the bill perfectly. For some, that means driving to the nearest chain, dropping a bundle, and leaving quality to chance. 

But you can save time and money – and the planet – on a superior brew by making it at home, exactly the way you like it.

The award-winning coffee experts at Steeped Coffee have some tips on preparing the perfect iced coffee. Their simple method requires no gadgets, no expensive equipment, no unrecyclable pods. With a Steeped Coffee Bag and a little bit of patience, your great-tasting, ethically-sourced glass of cold summer happiness is just a few minutes away. 

Steeped, Inc. is all about premium coffee with a conscious. Its proprietary single-serve brewing system features Steeped Coffee Packs (think tea bags for coffee) to deliver locally-sourced and roasted micro-batch coffee one delicious cup at a time. Nitro-sealed to preserve freshness, Steeped Coffee Packs are made with renewable and compostable materials and presented in recyclable packaging. 

The secret to a classic iced coffee, says the Steeped team, is a well-crafted coffee concentrate. A good concentrate is also the basis for many other refreshing coffee drinks we associate with summer sipping. Read on for tantalizing recipes!

How to make the perfect Steeped Iced Coffee Concentrate

For each serving, you’ll need

1 Steeped Coffee Pack

1 10 oz. mug

Filtered water

Directions

  1. Heat filtered water to 205 degrees, or just below boiling
  2. Place Steeped Bag at bottom of mug
  3. Pour hot water over Steeped Bag until the mug is half full
  4. Use string to dunk Steeped Bag 20 to 30 times over 1 minute
  5. Leaving the Steeped Bag in, let the coffee steep for 5 to 7 minutes or more to taste
  6. Remove Steeped Bag

Tips

  • To serve a crowd, make multiple batches of Concentrate. Store leftover Concentrate in the fridge.
  • Freeze Steeped coffee in ice cube trays. Use coffee cubes instead of regular ice cubes to avoid diluting your beverage.
  • Everyone knows the best way to enjoy iced coffee is through a straw. Be kind to the environment – buy reusable, dishwasher-safe metal straws!
