    Iced Beverages

    I ordered one of these:
    http://shop.ecompanystore.com/MSComp...c12054200.aspx

    It's getting hotter around here and I will need to make some awesome iced beverages.

    I see that they have specific Brew over Ice K cups for Keurig machines. However, I have so many regular K cups, what is the difference? Can I just make iced coffee with regular K cups? I do not understand the difference, besides yet another way to make money...

    Is it the amount of coffee in there? Different grounds?

    Thanks a bunch,
    Michael

    It is probably a different coffee bean and roasting so that it comes out stronger to begin with to compensate for the ice and milk and cream.

    To each his own, but I would contend that there is a huge difference between "iced coffee" and "coffee made cold by adding ice to it".

    Adding ice to coffee or brewing coffee over a cup of ice will simply be cold coffee, and cold coffee that's diluted by the melting ice at that.

    Proper iced coffee should begin with a concentrated form of coffee and/or ice cubes made by freezing coffee.
