How to Serve Iced Coffee on Draft at Home

Iced coffee on draft?… What do you mean on draft?… Like draft beer?!
That’s Right, just like draft beer!!

People all over the world are discovering the new way to keep and serve iced coffee at home.

You are able to keep gallons of ice-cold coffee in your refrigerator, eliminating the need to brew a new pot of coffee every-time you want some.

We are talking about kegging your coffee.  That’s right, just like kegging beer, only it will be coffee coming our of your draft faucet at home!

We know what you are thinking… “I don’t know how to keg beer, or coffee, and I don’t have any of the equipment needed to do this.”  But we are here to tell you that it is much easier that you might think, and you could be serving iced coffee at home whenever you want, without having to brew a pot and wait for it to cool.

Keg Outlet offers a wide variety of Keg Starter Kits that allow you to keg any liquid that you want to have on draft at home.  Our kegs come in a variety of sizes; 2.5 Gallon, 3 Gallon and 5 Gallon.  These kegs are very convenient, easy to use and most fit inside your existing refrigerator.  They feature a large lid on top that is removable for easy fill-ups and cleaning.

There are 3 different setups for pouring draft coffee at home;

  1. The basic method is from a party tap line – This party tap is a hand-held dispensing tap that will just sit inside your fridge and you can grab it, and fill up your cup as needed. View the Basic Iced Coffee Draft System
  2. Refrigerator conversion – With this setup, you will drill a hole in the front of your refrigerator and mount a draft faucet with tap handle.  This is very convenient because you do not have to open up the refrigerator when you need your ice-coffee fill up. The faucet is mounted right there on the front of the fridge (similar to most refrigerators with water dispensing units on the front). This setup essentially allows you to have as many draft faucets on the front of your fridge as you like, or as many kegs as you can fit into your refrigerator.  You can have different types of coffee brewed and ready to go for each tap you have installed!

  3. Draft Tower – The draft tower setup gets mounted on top of a shorter refrigerator, or freezer unit (that has been converted into a refrigerator with a temperature control thermostat).  The draft towers come with a wide range of faucets from the single faucet up to 6 on one draft tower!  View the Tower Iced Coffee Draft System

Now you just have to decide what Draft Iced Coffee Setup works best for you, and start brewing enough coffee to fill your keg!  The beauty of this setup is, you brew a lot of coffee at one time, fill up your keg, and you have iced-coffee on draft for weeks without having to brew more coffee!  Just fill up your cup whenever you need that refreshing drink!
