I absolutely love ice coffee in the summer but I never think to make it. I've found a new favorite coffee, La Colombe Torrefaction, and now I have a system to guarantee ice coffee on demand. About thirty minutes before I go to bed, I brew a pot of coffee. As soon as it brews, I turn off the coffee pot, put the carafe on the counter and let it cool for about 15 minutes. I pour the pot into a glass pitcher, cover the top and let it sit in the fridge over night. In the morning and throughout the day, I have ice coffee ready to go. It pairs perfectly with a madeleine or a lemon meringue tart and it's great when you have friends over on a hot day!
