Making coffee ice cubes is a way to have iced coffee any time quickly. You can make a big batch and simply take out cubes from freezer and pour fresh nut milk over them for a delicious, flavorful and refreshing coffee at any time of the day.
You can also use these coffee ice cubes to cool down freshly brewed coffee without watering them down as would haven with regular ice cubes or add coffee cubes to any beverage you´d like.
