The Secret to Making the Perfect Eco-Friendly Iced Coffee? It’s in the Bag!

When the summer heats up, coffee lovers crave something a little less steamy and a little more refreshing. Iced coffee fits the bill perfectly. For some, that means driving to the nearest chain, dropping a bundle, and leaving quality to chance.

But you can save time and money – and the planet – on a superior brew by making it at home, exactly the way you like it.

Steeped Coffee’s pre-portioned, eco-friendly coffee bags allow you to steep a farm-to-cup brew nearly anywhere, sans the machine, waste, or harmful chemicals found in powdered coffee. No need to give up high-end coffee.  With a Steeped Coffee Bag and a little bit of patience, your great-tasting, ethically-sourced glass of cold summer happiness is just a few minutes away.

Steeped, Inc. is all about premium coffee with a conscious. Its proprietary single-serve brewing system features Steeped Coffee Packs (think tea bags for coffee) to deliver locally-sourced and roasted micro-batch coffee one delicious cup at a time. Nitro-sealed to preserve freshness, Steeped Coffee Packs are made with renewable and compostable materials and presented in recyclable packaging.

The award-winning coffee experts at Steeped Coffee have some tips on preparing the perfect iced coffee. The secret to a classic iced coffee, says the Steeped team, is a well-crafted coffee concentrate. A good concentrate is also the basis for many other refreshing coffee drinks we associate with summer sipping. Read on for tantalizing recipes!
