Green Mountain Coffee® Espresso Roast Iced Latte

Green Mountain Coffee® Espresso Roast Iced Latte #GMIcedLatte

I have a confession to make: I spend a ridiculous amount of money on iced coffee. Insane. I mostly brew my coffee while at work (especially now that my daughter broke my coffee press) but had yet to find a good system for making iced coffee there. It’s just too complicated of a project for …
