Hi friends,

How do you begin your day?

We begin our day usually with coffee or tea. These days, I’ve been on a complete iced coffee kick, with disappointing results…

HATE is such a strong word, but I HATE diluted coffee. Whether it’s hot or cold, diluted coffee weakens my day.

Time to remedy this hatred situation ASAP, with iced coffee cubes! Ha! I’m sounding very genius here, but this is the best and easiest solution to any haters of diluted coffee out there.

Spring is in the air, so don’t allow a weak cup of iced coffee to damper your spirit.

Coffee lover! Tea is great but… a thick espresso in the morning is a fantastic routine for me. Beautiful pics, I would like to print the first one and make a big big poster out of it.

I’m with you, there’s nothing worse than diluted iced coffee. These cubes are the perfect solution!

Such a neat idea!! I don’t like my tea or coffee dilute either. It has to be dense & strong & milky!

So yummy! I’ve been doing this with espresso and coconut milk for about a year, but never thought to try it with tea. Please update us on how your experiments with that go! :)

Love the pictures! I’m not a fan of iced coffee, but using coffee ice cubes is a great idea! I should try it with iced tea (I’m a huge fan of that). Fun post — thanks.

Such a good idea to make flavored ice cubes for any cold drink! I personally don’t drink iced coffee but would love the iced tea equivalent of these :)

coffee all the way! but I’ve been staying away from it for a couple of weeks hoping to break the habit.
But OMG (how juvenile of me!) this I couldn’t resist. I hate watered down iced coffee too – this is a great /easy remedy.
I love how you style your pics. They look amazing.

Your photos are so gorgeous, friend! I got hooked on iced coffee when I lived in Florida during law school, and now no matter what the temp is outside I’m probably drinking an iced coffee inside. I love it so much! I will definitely be trying your method!
