Recipe Tips and Notes

  • If you’d like to have sweetened coffee ice cubes, add them while the coffee is hot so it can fully dissolve.
  • You can use all types of ice cube molds! If you’re a super slow sipper, you can use extra large molds. I like my small mold as it melts at the perfect pace for me.
  • Flavor your ice cubes! You can add some vanilla extract, a dash of cinnamon, brown sugar, etc.
  • For easy transport, I like to place my ice cube molds on a small sheet pan.
  • If your ice cube tray doesn’t have a lid, I recommend transferring the frozen coffee ice cubes into a ziptop bag.
  • This ice cube tip isn’t just limited to coffee! Try my matcha ice cubes or hojicha ice cubes!

How long does this keep?

I recommend using the coffee ice cubes within two weeks.

What’s the best mold for ice cubes?

I recommend using a silicone ice cube mold as it’s easier to pop the ice cubes out. If you have a plastic mold and you’re having trouble getting the ice cubes out, you can run the tray under some warm water to loosen them up.
