This is stunning and now I'm craving coffee at 10:30 p.m.! Pinned and needs to be made ASAP!
Stunning photos! And I love all kind of coffee drink, so this is so going to happen soon. I am thinking of doubling the brew coffee part, make one part into coffee ice cubes, and use that instead of plain water ice cubes to make one epic coffee drink! 🙂
Love your idea! Stronger taste!

This sounds absolutely delicious! I need to get my hands on an American Press! I am an avid tea drinker too (always using loose leaf too) so this would work for tea as well!
We have been making all our own iced coffees and we are saving a fortune on Starbucks. I love a mocha.
I didn’t have any whipped cream, and this recipe was still soooo delicious! It’s quick and easy as well!
I am so glad that you liked this recipe!

What a great iced coffee this recipe made. It was delicious and had a deep chocolate flavor. I used Starbuck's bold french roast, it worked beautifully in this treat. I did add two pinches of fine sea salt to the chocolate syrup (personal preference only) and garnished with whipped cream and chocolate syrup. Thank you for sharing a recipe that I will enjoy again.
