Warm Weather Treat

We've taken to making more morning coffee than we can finish before we start the day. On purpose. So we have some left over to make iced coffee in the afternoon.

"Louis' " Mocha Java makes great iced coffee. All you have to do is make sure you take the coffee off the warmer as soon as you've had your last cup of the morning - otherwise, it gets that nasty cooked flavor. Let it cool on the counter or stick it in the fridge if you like it really cold.

When the afternoon chores are completed, fill a glass with ice cubes, top it up with coffee and, if you like creamy coffee, add some half-and-half and stir. Sit down, preferably at an outdoor table in the shade and sip slowly while reading your favorite potboiler. It's okay if you slip off for a little nap.

«Louis», still blushing from your kind words yesterday, thanks you again!

But hats off to «Louis'» roaster, a local, family-owned business who are also great people!

Just when the weather is ready for iced coffee it changes.

I'm not much of a coffee drinker (sorry, Louis!), but I love the occasional iced coffee. You can imagine which brand I'll buy!

I'm guessing from this you drink drip filter or french press coffee - still, I could ask Mr Brown to steam off a few extra shots to cool and turn to iced coffee!

Louis, I'm sure the roaster has a great deal to do with the final quality of the beans - thank them for me!

Greg, yes, hard to tell when the next sunny day will come.

Cookiecrumb, that's okay, we like you anyway.

Morgan, My Beloved likes espresso iced coffee in the afternoon as a pick-me-up; I'm all about being gentled down in the afternoon. :-)
