Steeped Iced Coffee

When the summer heats up, coffee lovers crave something a little less steamy and a little more refreshing. Iced coffee fits the bill perfectly. For some, that means driving to the nearest chain, dropping a bundle, and leaving quality to chance.

But you can save time and money — and the planet — on a superior brew by making it at home, exactly the way you like it.

The award-winning coffee experts at Steeped Coffee have some tips on preparing the perfect iced coffee. Their simple method requires no gadgets, no expensive equipment, no mystery instant powders, and no wasteful pods. With a pack of single-serve Steeped Coffee, a great-tasting and sustainable glass of cold summer happiness is just a few minutes away.

Steeped, Inc. is all about coffee without compromise. Their proprietary single-serve brewing method features Steeped Coffee Bags (think tea bags engineered for coffee) to deliver the best ethically sourced and locally roasted specialty coffee, one delicious cup at a time.

According to the team at Steeped, the secret to a classic iced coffee is a well-crafted “coffee concentrate.” A good concentrate is also the basis for many other refreshing coffee drinks we associate with summer sipping.
