The trick is cold brewing. 
It is a must for iced coffee.

I discovered this secret over at

But I use my coffee concentrate for many things,
including my totally decadent

Slim Iced Mocha Frappe.

Prep:
To cold brew this liquid gold, you need a 2-gallon glass container, or three 2-quart glass pitchers and divvy up the instructions accordingly.  I like glass because it doesn't transfer any unauthorized taste to your brew.

Directions:
Pour an 11-oz package of ground coffee of your choice into a glass container(s) as noted above.
{looks like nowadays coffee is packaged in 11 ounces instead of a pound}
Pour 6 quarts of cold filtered water over it.
Stir until the grounds are soaked.
Cover and let steep 10 hours or more.
Pour through a cheesecloth-lined strainer.
Keep the precious dark liquid and throw the grinds on the compost pile!

Place in a pitcher, cover tightly and refrigerate.
Keeps for a month!

Let's see... 6 quarts equals 24 cups
of liquid coffee concentrate gold ~ 
that should last a few mornings! 

This is heavy-duty stuff - I wouldn't drink it plain. For recipes using Coffee Concentrate,
