Step 1: Turn on the coffee maker and add the ground coffee beans/coffee blend into it. 3 tablespoons should be enough, but you need to decide how many cups you want and how strong.
Step 2: Add 250 ml water to the water section and turn the machine on.
Step 3: Let the coffee brew and drip into the flask.
Step 4: If you want to add sugar or sweetener to your coffee, now is the time to do it. Sugar mixes better when the beverage is still hot.
Step 5: If your concoction is still hot, let it cool down to room temperature. Once it is cool, you can even stick it in the fridge if you have some time on your hands.
Step 6: Take a tall glass or a whiskey glass and add 3-4 cubes of ice

How To Make Iced Black Coffee At Home With Instant Coffee
This is by far the easiest way to make instant iced black coffee. All you need for it is some hot water and instant coffee.
Step 1: Heat some water in a pan or in an electric kettle. You can take about 200-250 ml.
Step 2: Let the water come to a boil for a minute.
Step 3: Add 1-2 tablespoons of coffee to a mug based on how strong you like it. Because of the ice, your coffee is anyway going to get watered down a little bit. So, if you like it a little strong, you might as well consider putting an extra teaspoon or so in there.
Step 4: Pour the hot water into the mug.
Step 5: If you want to sweeten your coffee, now is the best time to add the brown sugar or stevia to it so that it can mix well.
Step 6: Let the mug sit for a while till it is cool. Once cool, you can put it in the fridge for some more time to make it cold.
Step 7: Take a few ice cubes in a glass and pour the contents of the coffee mug over it. Enjoy your iced black coffee!
