When I first bought my French Press last month I would always end up with about one or two inches of leftover coffee. At first I just threw it out but then I thought why I am wasting this really good coffee. I grabbed a large jar with a lid from the cabinet and every day I would pour my leftover coffee in the jar and then refrigerate it. I also poured some in my ice cubes so that I can make some awesome cold coffee; I always hate how watery real ice makes your cold coffee.
Every time I go to any coffee house in the Summer I order an espresso shaker. Just espresso, milk and some ice is the way I like it. Now at home when I am in the mood for one of my favorite chill out drinks I just go to the fridge and take out my coffee jar, add some milk and sugar and shake like crazy. I pop some of my coffee cubes in a cup and pour my drink over the top. It’s fast, easy and delicious and I do it all with the little bit of coffee leftover daily.
