Cold brew iced coffee with mocha ice cubes. |

Whether it’s hot or cold, I’m obsessed with coffee and this cold brew iced coffee with mocha ice cubes is my new favourite way to cool down this summer. If you follow me on Instagram, you know that my life is positively packed with coffee. I’m a one coffee in the morning kind of girl and then one in the evening. In university, coffee would help me concentrate and power through my hours of essay writing, but these days, it’s more about taking a few minutes in the morning and the evening to wakeup or decompress over my favourite drink, it’s the best way to bookend my day. For the past little while I’ve been enjoying Lavazza’s Gran Selezione ground coffee and enhancing it’s already intense, rich flavour and chocolate undertones with these incredibly easy mocha ice cubes.

The first time I really started to get into coffee was a few years ago when I was working in the film industry. If you didn’t know it already, coffee is the driving force of a film set. There is always a vat of coffee at the ready. If there wasn’t, you’d hear about it and I would know because I spent my fair share of time making that coffee. Those freezing cold night shoots in February would not be possible without coffee, trust me.

Now the coffee on a set is not the greatest, but I’m happy to say that I have upgraded since then to Lavazza’s flavourful and delicious blends, and in the summer, it’s all about iced coffee. I’ve spent far too much money buying iced coffee that this year, I’m determined to make my own at home. Do you want to join me for this challenge? Start with this cold brew iced coffee and don’t forget the mocha ice cubes.
