What is the Best Coffee for Ice Cubes

Any coffee will work for coffee ice cubes, but we recommend using a Dark Roast Coffee. The bolder flavor of dark roast coffee will hold up well to the freezing process and taste great in a cold cup of coffee.

Italian Roast Coffee

Continental Coffee

Dark Mountain Coffee

If you want to add a little extra flavor to your coffee ice cubes, try adding a few drops of extract or flavoring syrup. Some popular flavors to add include vanilla, chocolate, and caramel. Just remember to adjust the amount of flavoring based on the strength of your coffee. Start with a little and then add more to taste. You could also use Flavoured Coffee Beans from our online store.

Does Ccoffee Ice Cubes have Caffeine

Yes, these ice cubes do have caffeine. However, the amount of caffeine in coffee ice cubes is significantly less than the amount of caffeine in a cup of coffee. This is because the freezing process breaks down the coffee beans' cell walls, releasing some of the caffeine.

If you want to make coffee ice cubes with less caffeine, we recommend using decaffeinated coffee. Decaf coffee still has some caffeine, but it's significantly less than regular coffee.


If you're a coffee lover, coffee ice cubes are a great way to keep your iced coffee cold and flavorful all summer long. Making them is easy and only takes a few minutes, so be sure to give it a try!

Their early days of packing Tea Bags by hand from chests of 10,000 prompted the creation of the company’s flagship infusion known as Pluckley Tea. It remains our most popular product today.

Mr Smith, who studied economics at London Polytechnic, has since specialised in over 1,000 types of Loose Leaf Tea - in addition to around 70 varieties of Roast Coffee - from around the world.
