  1. Is it OK if I chill coffee in the fridge overnight for an iced coffee, or will the coffee not be strong enough?
    If you mean premade coffee I’m not sure it will really do anything, and if you mean coffee that is actively “brewing” it makes such a minor difference it’s not worth worring over for smaller batches. I have found myself it comes out with a slightly more acidic flavor than if it’s brewed at room temperature, so keep that in mind when deciding to do fridge brewing or not

  2. I’ve done exactly that for many years. I live in Phoenix, Arizona all of my 67 years. Phoenix has the hottest annual average temperature of every significant city in the U.S.
    I don’t want hot coffee in the summer time, but I want to enjoy my coffee. I will brew a pot of my dark roast blend from Starbucks. Then I will put it in a capped pouring container and let it cool before placing it in the refrigerator.
    Ahhhhhh, I love the results. Whatever strength you no…

  3. You can for sure.
    Alternately why not try making #coldbrew.
    The process is basically using a steeping method of brewing (french press or immersion) and filtering out the coffee after 18-24 hours.

  4. If there is left over coffee in a pot at night, pour it into ice cube trays and freeze it. You can then use those cubes to cool off your fresh coffee the next day without diluting the cup.

  5. To add to the previous answers, different ways of making a cold brew produce different tasting results.
    The cold brew process, which uses a much higher ratio of coffee grounds to cold water when compared to a hot brewing process, can produce a lovely sweet and fruity result, depending on the roast level and beans used. The resulting taste is different to that of a hot brew left to cool, which can often go quite bitter due to roasting issues. This is brewed slowly overnight in the fridge and then filtered.
    Another delicious method is to brew your coffee directly over ice cubes, using either an espresso machine, or a drip method such as a filter machine, manual pour over or Chemex. This is known as a Japanese style iced coffee. The taste is different again to that of cold brew and a regular hot brew that has been left to cool, and my personal favourite.

  6. That is what I do. I make a full pot. Drink 2–3, fill a Mason jar with coffee, stick it in the fridge for iced coffee later (my wife usually gets to it before I do). This is also what my mom does and what my grandma did.
