Leftover Coffee Ideas

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 (not the leftover part with the grounds just extra 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.

What are some of your favorite summer time
coffee recipes and tricks?

    doesn’t the coffee in the jar taste stale? usually when we have coffee left in the pot it tastes yucky :-/

    New Wife I am not sure about the coffee pot but I use the French Press all that stuff is pushed down so the coffee that stays is all clean and fresh :)

    cold brew your coffee over 12hrs and you won’t have an issue with it being too weak. you will be surprised what a great flavor profile you will have when you cold brew. Hot coffee cooled is more acidic and of course, weak when u add ice to it.

    I have heard of this and wanted to try but it seems like such a mess with all the coffee and pressing the grounds out.
