Lastly, you could also try cold brew coffee. If you’re not familiar with the process of making cold brew coffee, you can think of it as being like a cold coffee infusion.

To make cold brew, all you need to do is mix freshly ground coffee with water, shake the mixture and allow it to brew for a minimum of 24 hours in the refrigerator. 

However, due to the whole day it takes to brew, the key is to plan ahead when you want to make cold brew coffee. The result is a super strong, rich coffee that you can keep in your refrigerator and enjoy cold.

As this recipe is about finding the easiest way to make the Dunkin’ Donuts frozen coffee at home, the recipe below uses a percolator to double-brew the coffee.

However, before you get started, it’s important to bear in mind that this coffee recipe is strong. That being said, it’s best to use it for milky coffee beverages in order to dilute the caffeine and strong coffee flavor.

This is especially important for people who are more sensitive to caffeine, as a coffee of this strength could result in you feeling a variety of symptoms associated with a caffeine sensitivity if you’re not wary.

As this coffee is a frozen coffee recipe, you want exactly that! Keeping this in mind, you will need to pour your double-brewed coffee into a silicone ice cube tray to make your coffee cubes ready to be chucked into the blender.

You can decorate your coffee in any way you like, but you can’t beat topping it with some whipped cream! If you want to go all out, why not also add a drizzle of caramel sauce and a sprinkling of chocolate?
