It’s time. Time to put away the steaming mugs of morning coffee and pour a glass of strong, rich, cooling iced coffee instead. From jars of cold-brewed coffee concentrate to the instant gratification of the Japanese iced coffee method, we have six ways to make great iced coffee, along with tips and recipes for iced coffee extras like vanilla ice cubes, to make your morning glass even better.

You don’t need any fancy equipment to make a great cup of iced coffee. Making a cold-brew concentrate is the most low-tech — you just need a vessel big enough to hold the ground beans and water, and a sieve for straining the grounds — but basically any method you use to brew hot coffee can be adapted to make iced coffee as well, whether you use a french press, Chemex, Aeropress, or an electric coffee maker.
