Are you tired of waiting in line for a cold brew at your local coffee shop? Look no further than your trusty Keurig! Making iced coffee with a Keurig is easy and customizable to your personal taste preferences.

Step 1: Brew a Strong Cup of Coffee

To make iced coffee with a Keurig, you’ll first need to brew a strong cup of coffee. This is because the ice will dilute the flavor of the coffee, so using a stronger brew will ensure that your iced coffee still has a bold taste. We recommend using a dark roast or a French roast K-Cup.

Step 2: Add Ice

Fill a glass with ice. The amount of ice you use is up to you, but we recommend using at least half a glass. This will ensure that your iced coffee is properly chilled and that the flavor is not diluted too much.

Step 3: Pour the Coffee Over the Ice

Carefully pour the brewed coffee over the ice in the glass. Take your time to avoid splashing and spilling.

Step 4: Add Milk or Cream

Add milk or cream to taste if you like your iced coffee creamy. We recommend using a non-dairy milk alternative like almond or oat milk for a refreshing and healthy option.

Step 5: Sweeten to Taste

If you like your iced coffee sweet, add sugar or your sweetener to taste.

Step 6: Enjoy!

Stir your iced coffee and enjoy!


Making iced coffee with a Keurig is a simple and convenient way to enjoy a cold brew at home. By brewing a strong cup of coffee, adding ice, pouring the coffee over the ice, adding milk or cream, and sweetening to taste, you can customize your iced coffee to your personal preferences.
