Here's what I do when making 'em for Debi and I.http://www.coffeegeek.com/forums/members/recipes/242492If you don't want a milk shake like consistency drink I've also used a
martini shaker adding about 1&1/2 cup of water to above recipe and served
strained into frozen glass.

3) From: Eddie Dove
Some input on iced coffee would be greatly appreciated
including some recommendations as to which coffees to
use (regular and decaf).  One caveat, I do not have
access to an espresso machine.
I have a very strong preference for drinking coffee
black, but my wife has an equally strong preference
for drinking coffee any other way than black.  Can
anyone recommend coffees that work well all by
themselves over ice?

That is way too much work!  I simply pour brewed coffee from the
Techivorm, KBM, French Press, or Vac Pot over an ice filled glass.
Stop about an inch and half from the top of a 16 or 20 oz tall glass
and add a tablespoon of raw sugar and half and half to about 3/8 of an
inch from the top, stir and let sit for a few minutes to cool, stir
again and enjoy.  Any good home roast makes a good iced coffee in my
opinion.

It's not that it's too much work, it's that it's gratuitous work. If more
work would get me a tastier drink, I'd do it. But I don't know how it's
possible to improve on simply taking a very strong brewed coffee (an
Aeropressing is ideal), adding dairy to taste (and sugar, for you sweet
tooths), and dropping in the ice.
Strong enough to require mere sips at first, it lasts an hour in something
thermal and finally dilutes to gulping strength.
What's great about this is that it lets the drinker decide which origins are
best -- nothing to overpower the flavor and make you wonder.
Tip for initiates to iced coffee: let it warm in your mouth. Icing a fresh
brew "hibernates" the aromatics. They wake up on your palate if you let your
mouth supply the warmth to thaw 'em.    :-)
Iced coffee is dramatically underrated by coffee lovers who believe
themselves risen to the level of pneumatics.    ;-D

Susan ...
This is what I do and is similar to what I have seen served in some
coffee houses:
16 - 20 oz glass
1 - double shot (espresso) or 2 - 3 oz shot from Aeropress
2 - Tablespoons of Brown Sugar, stir to dissolve the sugar
Fill Glass with Ice Cubes
Add a shot of 18% Cream
Fill remainder with milk
Serve without stirring or if it is for yourself stir and enjoy
Blend or don't blend ... your choice
Optional but more expensive is to substitute Sweetened Condensed milk
or Hazelnut syrup for the brown sugar.
Notes: I don't use sugar in my coffee but do prefer the sweetness of
this iced coffee as a treat. It sure beats the heck out of that
bottled iced cap you can buy. I really do prefer using the Aeropress
for making these iced coffees but an Espresso machine probably works
better.

Good espresso will almost always make a better iced than any other method,
IMO.
I was up to Metropolis for the first time the other day with Jim & Co., a
delightful time. Jeff gave us some Red Line to take home, and since I don't
have an espresso machine I'm using it for iced -- and it's GREAT. So of
course I'm thinking that Red Line as espresso on ice would be awesome.
Anyone done that?
You left out a very necessary "r".   ;-)
BTW, I'm thinking of getting one of those ISI or Liss creamers for use with
iceds. Anyone had any experience with that?

This morning I frothed up a mixture of equal parts unsweetened Soy  
Dream, heavy cream, and water (for me, and straight regular Soy Dream  
for my lactose-intolerant son and assistant) only till it stretched  
(not fully steamed), plus some sugar-free vanilla syrup and poured it  
over a 20-oz. glass half full of ice. I then pulled a double shot and  
poured it down the center, stirred from the bottom and stuck a straw  
inside. Yum. (Syrup optional--I like a little subtle flavoring in an  
iced drink but can't stand it in a hot coffee drink). My son and  
assistant each wanted seconds.

12) From: Dan Bollinger
Javamama,  Technically, although others may disagree, iced coffee has no milk in 
it.  I'm not sure what it is called when it has milk. I call it iced cafe o 
lait.   Here is my recipe:
Double shot of espresso
Dissolve one teaspoon of sugar in it while it is still hot
Add some ice
Top off with about 4 ounces of milk

13) From: susan oppenheim
thanks all for the help
i am pulling shots and storing them cold in the fridge
then adding the ice and milk,sweeteners  etc as people like it
the suggestion of coffee ice cubes is great
man has it been crazy hot here in toronto-47 with the humidex
yesterday-emergency shelters with air conditioning are opening up
we lost our power for a while last night
terrifying thinking we'd be without for a possibility of days like many
other places in the U.S.
should break with thunderstorms today
hope you are all well and enjoying your iced coffees
cheers
susan

being your typical lazy American, what's the Fahrenheit conversion on that
temp, it's been about 98 on consecutive days here in Philly.

98 here for the last few days also.
