Some people throw a few ice cubes in their java, and while this method does work, it waters down the coffee — and no one likes watery coffee. The Daily Meal’s method is foolproof, and it doesn’t dilute the coffee flavor. Make a batch of coffee and freeze it in an ice tray, and after you make your morning coffee, throw a few coffee cubes in your cup to cool it down. Your coffee will cool to a comfortable temperature, and it’ll stay as strong as ever. You can even make flavored coffee cubes using extracts — add a dash of vanilla, hazelnut, or orange for a special treat.
