Cool Beans. That was one of my favorite sayings back in graduate school (Surprise, you didn’t know I had a Masters degree did ya?) and now that saying has been revived!

Why you ask? well, do you recall my friend who had the dental work? Well that sweet woman and I took the kiddos bowling yesterday and once we had sat down for two minutes, the following scenario occurred:

She: ‘Do you like my bag? (a super cute reusable one)

Me: ‘Yes, I saw it at Pier 1 or TJ Maxx and wanted to buy it but I have too many reusable bags’

She: ‘It is for you’

Me: ‘Oh no, you don’t have to give it to me!’

She: ‘It REALLY is for you and there is a little something inside it for you as well’

Me: ‘What did you do K?’

And before I tell you what it is, let me say that this woman is amazing. She remembers the smallest details of something you like, want, have a passion for and notes it for future use. She recalls me talking about how I was going to make iced coffee ice cubes and how I was inspired to do so. 

Then she drove across state lines to get this for me (and some other beauts. I have yet to share): Cool Beans!

So here is what you do: Brew a minimum of double strength coffee (I used my Keurig iced coffee) and allow to cool. Then pour the coffee into each mold/tray up to the rim, freeze, remove, enjoy.

Seriously…..use this tray or any fun shapes and pop it into something you want the kids to try and trust me, they will probably dive in.

I have more iced coffee cube ideas a coming so stay tuned!

Warning, you try to take my iced coffee or even expect a sip, I will give you a stiff kick…..see, just like that.

Are an iced or hot coffee drinker in the Summer?

I love iced, iced, iced. And I adore these ice molds, so clever!

These are stinking adorable! I haven’t jumped into the silicone craze (only because my house is already creaking with all my kitchen toys), other than my silpat mats. But this may do the trick. Must have!

Cool beans indeed! I must have too :) I’m such a coffee freak.

I worked for a good 14 years taking care of MS & PhD students….I really miss that job.

These are so cute, I loved iced coffee in the summer

Love this! My pet peeve (well, one of them, anyway) is the ice melts and dilutes my iced coffee. What a great find!

These are so cool. And a great way to use up left over coffee. It drives me nuts to throw half the pot away.

How cool are those!! Sign me up for coffee anything all year long :)

Jamie July 21, 2011 at 8:22 pm

These are so cute! I have to find out where I can get them. What a cute gift idea too for any coffee lover.

Love it, Jen! Great idea with the fun tray! :)

Liz August 18, 2011 at 4:04 pm

Adorable!

I LOVE coffee hot or cold anytime of the year. But especially iced coffee or frappucinos in my blender in the summer time. I so totally must have these cool beans!

Jennifer April 14, 2012 at 10:03 pm

What an awesome idea. And now I won’t have yucky watered down iced coffee, which in my opinion is equal to the fourth ring of hell.

Jennifer April 14, 2012 at 10:15 pm

We see things eye to eye Jen! Hope you are feeling great!

I love iced coffee especially in summers — hate watered down beverage. Those mold looks super cute :)
