Ice Ice Coffee, Baby

Wearing shorts in the sun at last! Once I get used to Danforth patios I’ll enjoy summer. Neither car exhaust or wasps add to my dining pleasure. Each year they get a little larger – if someone stops to talk a friend on a patio pedestrians have to walk in the street to get by – sometimes there is no way to give a baby carriage right of way without jumping on to some diner’s table. And as much as bike’s are good for the planet, I won’t get out their way on the sidewalk when that means pushing that woman with the baby carriage into the street to make way for it.

Of the many things I enjoy about summer is iced coffee. Last year after getting my first of the year at Starbucks – a venti – I was struck that after a few slurps all that was left was ice – clear ice – a glass that was brim full of ice. So that was, like, an ounce of milky coffee poured over ice?

I got to thinking that wasn’t cost effective for me. I brewed a pot of coffee at home, let it cool, then filled a couple of ice cube trays with it – coffee will freeze!! It doesn’t separate out either. I brewed another pot of coffee – chilled that in the fridge. Voila – perfect & real iced coffee. Never again will I pay for watery cold coffee.
