The Ultimate Guide to Making Iced Coffee Beverages: Tips, Tricks, and Recipes

Cold Brew

Cold brew is a popular method for making iced coffee because it produces a smooth, low-acid brew that's perfect for mixing with ice and other ingredients. To make cold brew coffee, simply mix coarse ground coffee with cold water and let it steep in the refrigerator for 12-24 hours. Then, strain the mixture and serve over ice! You can also do this by using Caffi Filters and a French pressor check out this cold brew maker!

Iced Coffee

If you are brewing with a hot coffee maker, brew an extra strong pot or roast of coffee, if you are using a Keurig or other single serve brewer, brew your strong roast on a smaller size, like a 4oz cup. Let it cool for a bit, then pour it over an iced filled cup! This method can taste a little diluted so the stronger the coffee the better. Add milk and flavour if you wish!

Iced Latte

An iced latte is a classic iced coffee beverage that's easy to make at home. Start by brewing a shot or two of espresso, then add cold milk and ice. You can also add flavoured syrups or sweeteners to taste.

Iced Americano

If you prefer a stronger coffee flavour, an iced Americano is a great option. Brew a shot or two of espresso and add cold water and ice. You can also add milk or flavouring if your heart desires!
