Frozen coffee cubes will change your life

Cafe Phillips serves iced coffee using frozen coffee cubes. (Alex Baldinger)
From March through October, I’m an iced coffee guy. But this morning, something happened that will forever change my relationship with the beverage.

I purchased a large iced coffee from the Cafe Phillips on L Street, and when I was handed my clear plastic cup, I realized that I was not staring at traditional ice cubes, but cubes of frozen coffee keeping my beverage chilled.

Hark, the coffee angels sing! Not only does the beverage stay chilled, but it doesn’t become watered down as it would with traditional ice. And the best part: An hour from now, when the ice coffee melts, I’ll have more to drink!

This might be the greatest culinary adaptation since the invention of the stuffed crust pizza. I can never go back. Sorry, Caribou.

Cafe Phillips has locations throughout downtown. Have you seen this phenomenon elsewhere around town?
