We all have or know somebody who has a Keurig at home, it's convenient and give us a quick cup of coffee.

Iced Coffee is also a good switch you can do with your drip coffee maker so we will see how to do it here.

Making Coffee with a Keurig Brewer

 

Coffee grinds for a Keurig machine are very important, if you use too coarse your coffee can taste like a tea, so we recommend use a medium-fine grind coffee to get a full bodied brew in this brewer.

We recommend these grinds:

  • Medium-Fine

Now let's check the Coffee Ratio:

  • 15-20 grams/3 tbsp of medium-fine ground coffee per cup.
  • 350ml/12oz water per cup.

DIRECTIONS.

  1. As we said, in this case we will brew for an iced coffee so the best option is using medium-fine ground coffee to get an intense beverage. Also, we recommend medium roast if you like black iced coffee, otherwise use medium-dark roast.
  2. Since there are now many sizes/models of Keurig you can just follow the steps from the machine's manual, here the important thing is the grind type and the amount of water you use per cup.
  3. After brewing it you have to let it cool down to room temperature before you add:
  • Ice cubes, sugar, milk, creamer, vanilla, cinnamon o any other ingredient you would like to add.
  • That's it! super easy, if you love black iced coffee we recommend to use our Cool Beans.

 As you can see this is the hot coffee-cool down technique. This is good if you don't have an espresso machine or cold brew concentrate with you. There is another technique called "flash brew coffee" that we will talk about in another recipe.

Because coffee isn't just a beverage that you can enjoy hot!

Interesting facts about the Keurig brewer machine.

  • Keurig landed in homes in 2003, 19 years ago! they basically reinvented everyone's morning routine. No longer did you have to brew an entire pot of coffee.
  • Keurig means "excellence" in dutch. The creator of this machine name it this way hoping to provide an "excellent" cup of coffee at all times.
  • You should do at least 4 deep cleanings a year. Wash removable pieces (like the reservoir, tray, and K-Cup holder) in warm, soapy water. 

Pro Tip. Use Refillable Reusable K-Cup Coffee Filters. We love them because they are eco-friendly. When you choose to use a reusable and refillable filter in your Keurig Coffee Maker, you're doing your part in saving our planet's landfills from even more plastic and aluminum. 

And will save you a lot of money in the long run.
