Keurig machine are fantastic. They are reliable, affordable, have a luxury look and feel, and lastly (but certainly not least), make fantastic coffee. There's no wasted time or mess with the machines - you just put in your pack, press go, and away you go! Yet what many people don't know is that along with making regular coffees, Keurig machines offer a very quick and easy way to make iced coffee.

There's no need to spend upwards of 3 dollars on beautiful iced coffee anymore if you own a Keurig - after reading this article you'll be able to make your own at home... whenever you desire! Iced coffees are perfect for the summer, especially in the afternoon or late evening when entertaining friends or family. They can provide a refreshing twist on your normal cup of joe, and really taste like a whole different drink altogether!

Below you'll find a step-by-step guide on how to make various delicious iced coffees with your Keurig machine. The guide works with virtually every model, so enjoy!

Step 1 - Flavor Selection

First off, you'll want to give different flavors a test. Your normal Keurig coffee pack may taste delicious as an iced coffee, but there is an equal chance that you just won't like your regular coffee ice cold instead of hot.

It's best to go with what you have for the moment, then order some samplers (see the link below) and come back to this guide ready to go again. This way you're sure to find that perfect specific iced coffee pack that you can then order in bulk.

Personally, my favourite is Green Mountain's Extra Bold Dark Magic - I think it tastes divine when iced!

It's best to choose something strong, as when you use the ice that you'll read in the guide, very weak tastes can tend to get lost when the ice melts. Therefore, it's best to go for something stronger than you usually drink when making your normal cup of coffee.

Step 2 - Brew!

Before you begin you'll want to ensure your cup is heat/cold resistant, as your cup will be heated up rapidly, then cooled down just as quickly.

When you're ready, simply start up your machine and prepare yourself to discover how to make iced coffee with Keurig!

It is important to have a large, heat/cold resistant cup - otherwise it could overflow! If not, don't worry, as you'll be able to get 2 out of a single pack.

  • First, fill your cup with some ice cubes - 3 or 4 medium ones should be plenty.
  • Next, insert your pack and set your Keurig to brew on the strongest setting.
  • Then press brew! Your coffee should come out, hit the ice cubes, melt them and cool down!
  • Stir the beverage. If your cup is heat-resistant, the ice cubes will melt much slower, giving you longer to enjoy your iced coffee.
  • Next, be sure to add milk, cream & sugar/sweetener to taste - don't skimp!

And that's it!
