or you can get a one serving drip coffee maker, making it one cup at a time. Just throw the filter away, rinse it, put cup in dishwasher...

Take the stuff out of the fridge before you go to bed, put it back when you are done making coffee.
Perhaps store it in a vacuum sealed container?

I don't like the taste of microwaved coffee.

like this:The other one cup coffee maker a Manual Drip Coffee Filter Cone
That would not do me any good as the purpose of this exercise is to drink cold brewed coffee. I already have a drip pot, but I find the cold brewed coffee to be much tastier.

During the week my morning coffee is had at the office. If I have coffee at home it is a spur of the moment sort of thing so I can't plan ahead to have it out overnight. Vacuum storing does not make it so that you don't have to refrigerate things that need refrigeration so that would not really be an option either.

We are talking HOT coffee brewed by the cold-brew method, right?
Well, I am totally confused. It has sounded like you wanted this at home, until now.

So what are your options for heating it at work?

Can you fix it at home in the AM, and put it in a thermos?
How about one of those immersion heaters, if you can still find them? Plug it
in and insert into cup of liquid to heat it.....

Also, is your concentrate stored WITH the grounds? Without, I would think it would be OK left out. Its just flavored water. Course, we ARE the Better Safe Than Sorry Place, so....

How about microwaving the water in the cup and then adding the coffee?

GB, can you not use boiling water from the kettle mixed with the concentrate to get it hot enough? If that didn't work I would do a two step approach. Pour your concentrate into a measuring cup and zap it for 10 seconds or so to take the chill off. Then pour in the required amt of boiling water for a cup of coffee.

Definitely don't leave the concentrate out. Mold icky.

Edit: I see apple*tart said the same thing. Bad Alix for not reading the whole thread.

another note, scald your cup with boiling water quickly before you pour in either the concentrate or the water from the kettle. Hot the pot as my Gramma used to say,

Sorry for the confusion GF. I am talking about coffee at home. At the office I drink the office coffee which is pretty good. The cold brewed coffee I am discussing is for home use.

I don't think it is safe to say that it can be left out because it is just flavored water. Chicken stock is just flavored water after all and I am sure we all could agree you could not just let that sit out.

The issue is not how to get the water hot. I boil the water in a kettle. That works fine. The issue is that when I add the coffee concentrate from the fridge it cools the boiling water down too much.

Even a 10 second zap makes out coffee mugs too hot to handle. It is like the heat goes right to the cup and goes to the liquid second.

While the kettle is boiling I do have very hot tap water warming the mug. That helps, but does not bring it to the point I want it.

Sounds like I will just have to learn to drink my coffee a little cooler. Thanks for the suggestions everyone.

Measuring cup GB. Not coffee cups. Measuring cups are designed to go in the microwave.

I could do that and maybe I will try tomorrow morning. That is one more dish to wash though and I am nervous that the taste of the coffee will change as I am not fond of nuked coffee. I will try it though and hopefully it will be a short enough blast that it does not change the taste.

You just need to take the chill off it. Then it will be as hot as the water from your kettle. 10 seconds shouldn't affect the taste. Good luck, let us know how it goes.
