Coffee Cubes Recipe

how to make coffee cubes
One of the most annoying questions I get asked when I order my coffee at my favorite place is if I want it Hot, Frozen or over ice. Not that there is anything wrong with frozen drinks, or blended. But if it’s over ice what happens? It waters down the coffee. How horrible is that?! So when I make them at home I do this quick and simple trick to make sure my “iced” coffee doesn’t get watered down.

Coffee Cubes


  • Your favorite Coffee – brewed to your liking


  • Ice cube tray
  • Freezer
  • Patience


  1. Brew your favorite coffee blend. This works with a Keurig or even a pot of coffee. One Kcup will make about 10 cubes of coffee, so 2 kcups will fill up a full tray (give or take). If there is left over drink it – it’s you’re favorite right?
  2. Freeze your cubes. They should set up in a few hours!

After a few hours pull your cubes out of the freezer. They should be solid when you pull them out.

The Coffee Cubes will melt quicker than normal ice cubes – keep that in mind. If you touch the top they will probably be a little “sticky”

Fill your glass with your Coffee Cubes. It should take around 6 cubes to fill up your glass. You can add more if you want.

Now – the best part: Pour Hot coffee on top. On your Keurig just use the second to last brew setting and pour it right over those coffee cubes.

It’s as simple as that!

When you’re done what do you have? Chilled coffee that is all coffee! It’s not watered down or diluted. Instead it’s full of flavor and ready to go on the road with you.

Have extra coffee cubes? Put them in a zip top bag and freeze them again. Mix and match your flavors and make your own blend!
