Leftover coffee
 
I keep thinking that when I make coffee and have a lot leftover, I should keep it in the fridge so I can have iced coffee later. Well, I was wondering, how long would the coffee in the fridge stay good/good-tasting for? Does anyone else do this?

I've done that, too. Don't know how long it would last - mine is always gone within a day or two.

I'll save it for later in the day. Pour it over ice with a little cream and a couple of chugs of Kahlua. I've never really kept it for long.

I don't find regular hot coffee to be strong enough for the iced version, especially once the ice starts melting. My leftover morning coffee, if it doesn't go in a thermos for later, is water the plants.

I like my coffee worthy of the horseshoe test. If you throw a horseshoe in the coffee pot and it doesn't stand up, it's not strong enough.

Ditto here. And we make just enough for her to have a large cup and me to have a large cup (think two cup mug sized), so rarely do we have leftover coffee to worry about.

I rarely have any "left over", but I have no problem nuking some cold coffee if I really need a caffeine fix.

dh and i have leftover coffee all the time and what we don't drink one morning i put in a jar in the refer. and we reheat it the next morning.

I've heard or freezing leftover coffee in ice cube trays to store and use later when you make iced coffee so when the cubes melt it wont make your iced coffee watery :smile:
