Iced Coffee

Iced coffee is not what you are thinking it is. You are perhaps thinking that after making a hot cup of coffee, bringing it down to room temperature, and then chilling it in the refrigerator constitutes a simple iced coffee. You could not be more wrong!

Iced coffee actually refers to an old method of making cold coffee. Hot coffees are hot-brewed, but if you want to make iced coffee the way it was made when it was started, then you have to cold-brew the coffee.

Starbucks coffee houses offer many different types of iced coffee to their customers and the following is just one of the many starbucks iced coffee recipes which can be sampled.
