How I made iced coffee with Green Mountain (Review & Giveaway)

GMC_logo_1color Contest closed
Despite the warm weather, I still enjoy a hot morning coffee in the summer.  But when the afternoon calls for another caffeine fix, I want something a little more refreshing.  Iced coffee is a nice mid-afternoon treat that helps put a stopper in my energy drain while cooling me down.  This is how I make my iced lattes using Green Mountain Coffee.

greenmountainsignatureFirst, get your coffee ready!  I took out the Signature Sampler which includes whole bean bags of the customer favorites: Breakfast Blend, Vermont Country Blend®and our Dark Magic® Espresso Blend.  I have a coffee machine with a burr grinder to turn my whole beans into grinds.  If you want to grind your own beans and don’t have a fancy coffee maker you can get a grinder for about $15.00.  This particular morning I selected the Breakfast Blend.

 

I brewed my morning coffee as usual, but made more than I needed so that I could reserve some for my afternoon break.

Just pour the freshly-brewed coffee into a large mug.

003 Add what you like.  I use fat free creamer and sugar.

In other words, just make your usual cup of coffee, but instead of drinking it right away chill it in refrigerator.  This is also a great way to use that extra cup of coffee that you didn’t want or did not have time to drink in the morning.  Later in the afternoon when you’re ready for some liquid energy on ice…

Take your coffee out of the fridge, add ice, and enjoy!

All of the coffees in the Green Mountain sampler were great.  Hot or cold.  I can see why they’re the customer favorites!    The only draw-back for me is that they don’t have Green Mountain t-discs for my Tassimo, yet (hint hint).  But if you use a Keurig brewer, you can enjoy Green Mountain in single cups too.
