Cold Brew Coffee
A classic and increasingly popular cold coffee option, cold brew is a concentrated coffee made by steeping ground beans in room temperature or cool water for an extended period. It’s known for its smooth flavor profile and can be served over ice with milk or cream and sweetener if desired. To make your version at home, combine ground coffee of your choice with filtered water in a pitcher or French press, stir and let it sit for 12-18 hours. Strain the mixture, and you’re ready to serve!
An iced latte combines espresso shots with cold milk, ice, and sometimes syrup for sweetness. For an even creamier iced latte, try adding a dollop of fresh whipped cream on top. To make your own at home, start by steaming the milk until frothy and pour it into a glass filled with ice. Then, pull shots of espresso over the top and stir to combine. Finally, add sweetener if desired, and enjoy!
A frappé is a cold, blended beverage typically made of instant coffee, milk, sugar, and ice. Try adding a drizzle of chocolate syrup or caramel sauce for an extra flavor boost. To make your version at home, combine all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. Serve over ice and top with whipped cream or sprinkle cocoa powder. Enjoy!
Cold Foam Coffee
Cold foam coffee is a newer and increasingly popular style of cold coffee. It’s made with espresso shots, milk, and sugar blended until light, airy and bubbly. To make your version at home, combine all ingredients in a blender and blend until the desired consistency is reached. Serve over ice or chilled and top with cold foam for a special finishing touch. Enjoy!
Affogato is an Italian-style dessert with espresso poured over a scoop of ice cream—perfect for those with a sweet tooth. To make your version at home, begin by pulling espresso shots and pouring them into a glass filled with two scoops of ice cream. Serve immediately and enjoy!
