At least a day before you want to serve iced coffee, brew a small batch of coffee, adding cinnamon sticks or ground cinnamon to the filter, or to the press pot, with the ground coffee and 2 cups water. Let cool slightly, and then pour the cinnamon flavored coffee into an ice cube tray and freezer overnight. Makes 12 to 16 ice cubes
