Now, let’s talk about how to make-ahead, store and reheat this delicious iced orange coffee recipe.

If you’re planning to make this recipe ahead of time, it’s best to prepare the cold brew coffee a day or two in advance, and keep it in an airtight container in the refrigerator. The freshly brewed cold brew coffee is good for up to a week. The orange-cinnamon syrup can be also prepared several days ahead and stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator. Simply shake well before using.

Once you’ve combined the cold brew coffee and syrup, pour into an ice cube tray and freeze for several hours. Once frozen, transfer the coffee-orange ice cubes into a plastic freezer bag or an airtight container and keep frozen until ready to use.

When you need to serve the iced orange coffee, simply fill a tall glass with these iced orange cubes and pour freshly brewed hot espresso or coffee. Give it a quick stir and add some more ice cubes if needed.

If you have any leftover iced orange coffee in your glass that you want to store for later, don’t worry! You can just cover it with saran wrap or put it in an airtight container in your fridge for up 3-4 days without affecting its taste. But if you prefer reheating it, transfer the iced orange coffee into a microwave-proof cup and heat for 10 to 20 seconds intervals, stirring after each interval until it reaches your desired temperature.

With these convenient make-ahead tips, you can quickly whip up this refreshing drink anytime you need it – whether on a hot summer day, or even during colder months when you’re craving that burst of citrusy flavor.

Tips for Perfect Results

A delightful blend of coffee and orange juice that’s worth the try!

I’ve learned a few tricks from my years of experience making coffee, and I’m happy to share them with you. Follow these tips to get the perfect iced orange coffee every time.

1. Use fresh ingredients

The key to a delicious orange coffee is using fresh ingredients. Use freshly roasted and coarsely ground coffee beans, freshly squeezed orange juice, and orange zest that is just grated from a fresh orange. This will bring out the best flavors in your drink and create a more aromatic brew.

2. Brew it strong

Since you’ll be adding ice cubes, which will dilute the coffee, it’s important to brew it strong by using twice as much ground coffee as you would for a regular cup of hot coffee. A properly brewed cup of cold brew will keep its complex flavors even through the addition of ice cubes.

3. Make an orange cinnamon syrup

Making an orange-infused cinnamon syrup instead of adding sugar straight to your drink can bring a unique twist that enhances the overall flavor. You can do this by simmering strips of orange zest, orange juice, water, cinnamon sticks, and sugar until it forms a syrupy texture.

4. Try the orange americano

Add freshly squeezed orange juice to make an Orange Americano: 2 parts brewed espresso + Blood Orange Juice (1/4 cup). Mix them together in a shaker with ice or pour the espresso over the blood orange juice.

5. Experiment with variations

Part of the fun of making iced coffee is being able to experiment with different variations! Try adding other citrus fruits such as mandarin oranges or blood oranges for added layers in taste or perhaps even some chocolate syrup for a chocolate-orange flavor that really pops.

Follow these tips and feel free to experiment with your own twists on this recipe for exceptional results. Enjoy your refreshing glass of iced orange coffee anytime!
