3 classic iced coffee recipes

ICED LATTE

The classic iced latte is actually much easier than you think. When choosing a coffee go for something with plenty of sweetness in the flavour notes and some strong fruit flavours too.

HOW TO MAKE IT:

  • 200ml fresh cold milk
  • Double shot of espresso (60ml)
  • 200g ice

Add milk to ice. Top with espresso.

CARAMEL ICED LATTE

If you’re looking for a longer, sweeter drink, try a caramel iced latte. This works great with coffees that have a nutty, chocolatey flavour profile, like Organic or Extract Original.

Choosing the perfect iced coffee

Unsurprisingly, your choice of coffee will make a huge difference to the end result of your iced coffee drink. When choosing a coffee for an iced drink the first place to start is by looking at the flavour notes.

Opt for a coffee with plenty of sweetness in it's flavour notes - look for notes of sugar, toffee, and caramel and also strong fruit notes - think stone fruits, citrus and purple berries. The sweetness and acidity of these coffees will translate into a delicious iced drink.

Natural and Honey Process coffees are particularly good for iced drinks, thanks to their fruity flavours so these are a great place to start.
