  1. Brewed coffee for iced drinks is typically double-brewed if prepared according to common best practice. As the ice melts, the coffee should combine with the water to taste appropriately and at the right strength.
    Serving too much ice is a common problem. Some iced coffee drinkers sip the coffee and drink it slowly throughout the day, allowing melted ice water to form at the top of the drink.
    Suggestion: as described earlier, ask for light ice. Stir as needed. Go to a coffee shop that double brews their iced coffee and has a commitment to coffee quality excellence.

  2. Have you considered Non Melting Ice Cubes ?
    Sounds like a pain in the butt, but I can’t think of any other way to keep ice cubes from diluting your drink.

    If you don’t mind carrying two cups (three actually), this might work. One cup gets the liquid. The second one gets the ice full to the brim. The third cup is empty (which you could double onto the second up while carrying it). Pour the liquid into the ice only-cup, which should get it really cold, really fast. Then pour only the liquid into the third cup. If the liquid gets too warm for your liking, then simply rinse and repeat the process.

  3. First, ask for light ice (assuming that’s part of the issue) Then, tell them straight up, you don’t want it to taste watered down.
    If that fails, tell them your drink tastes terrible and you want it remade/returned for a full refund.

  4. The only prevention method I know of is to substitute cubes of frozen water for cubes of frozen coffee which is only possible in a home environment.

  5. If you live in NW Washington, check out Woods Coffee; they do cold brew in-house (which is amazing and requires little ice) and when they have an extra shot from making your drink, they ask if you’d like it for free.
