Blended Chocolate Coconut Iced Coffee

This blended chocolate coconut iced coffee is the perfect summer treat.

A few months ago our coffee maker broke. It was the 3rd Mr. Coffee drip machine we had in this house that failed us despite pretty consistent de-scaling attempts thanks to our horrifically hard water situation. We actually got a water softener soon thereafter (best $1500 we’ve ever spent in this house!) but I refused to get another drip machine and deal with frequent vinegar cleanings again. Plus, I hated the room it took up on my counter.

So, I bought this stove top percolator and love it to pieces. It means however, that you need to actually be in the kitchen while making coffee so it doesn’t start to boil or you don’t accidentally leave it going for too long and end up with burnt coffee, but I’m ok with that. Ulysses however, finds a way to screw up the coffee making process every.single.time.

The first time, he tried to pour the coffee without taking out the inner basket resulting in grinds everywhere. Gritty coffee, yum.

Then, it was him turning the burner to 9 (out of 10 on our glass top electric pos stove) and boiling the beejeezus out of it. Burnt coffee, double yum.

Recently, it’s been not filling it up enough so that it percolates quicker which results in me only getting 1 cup in the morning.

1 cup is about 2 cups too little. And 2 cups short of my desired coffee consumption is a recipe for a pissed off Gina.

Which is why afternoon blended iced coffees happen.

And the good thing about afternoon coffee versus morning coffee is that it becomes socially appropriate for chocolate to make it’s way into that glass.

So, I might just have to let him continue screwing up the morning pot a little while longer.

    If this is what happens with a screwed up pot of coffee, I saw DEFINITELY let him keep messing up. Chocolate, coconut and coffee?! It’s like an almond joy that is that makes me human (coffee does that for me.)

    Percolated coffee confuses me. I think I would be the one screwing it up each morning. Of course we currently have three different machines for coffee cluttering our kitchen counter and I would love to throw them all out.

      It’s seriously so easy! Water in one spot, coffee in another. That’s it :) I was intimidated the first time too and made my sil walk me through it, haha. It’s SO nice not having another appliance on the counter!

    Wow! I just made this and am drinking it right now. It’s awesome! I omitted the coconut extract and coconut sugar. Did not use toppings either. It is perfect!
