I love coffee. (you're shocked, I can tell) I like to keep a pitcher of this in my fridge, especially during the summer.

I'm really sorry that I have to rate this so low. I thought about it a long time, because I love Recipezaar and my fellow Recipezaarians, but I figure it's best to be honest. I used a quality SCM (eagle brand) and about 9-10 cups of coffee. It was just too devastatingly sweet - even for my wife, who loves Starbucks iced coffee. After we tried about half of the original batch, I added another 5 cups of fresh coffee, effectively halving the amount of SCM - it was still too sweet for me, although Kelly said the sweet was about right at that point. But what was still a problem for both of us was the heavy caramel notes that the SCM brought - really overpowering the coffee. I don't think I'd use this recipe unless I cut the amount of SCM to 1/4 can, and had a *really* strong brew that would work well with the caramel notes (like a dark roasted Kona).
