Cold Brew: Smooth and Chocolaty

If you’re looking for a smooth and chocolaty iced coffee, cold brew is the way to go. It’s easy to make too! Just infuse coffee grounds into cold water and let it steep for anywhere between five to 24 hours. The result is a refreshing beverage that can be enjoyed with or without milk. Plus, it can be stored in the fridge for up to two weeks. The only downside is that it takes some time to brew, so make sure to plan ahead.

Espresso: Strong and Punchy

If you prefer a stronger and punchier iced coffee, espresso is your best bet. The simplest way to make an iced latte is to add ice, milk, and a shot or two of espresso. But here’s a pro tip: pull your espressos a little shorter, like a ristretto style, to bring out the natural sweetness of the coffee. It may taste sharper than hot espresso, but trust me, it’s worth it.

Filter Coffee: Delicate and Flavorful

For those who enjoy black iced coffee, filter coffee is a great choice. It maintains the delicate acidity of the coffee and can be brewed with single cup devices like the v60 or the Aeropress. To make a perfectly balanced iced filter coffee, brew it with half the amount of water you would normally use. That way, when the hot coffee melts the ice, you get a similar strength to standard filter coffee.

Choose the Right Coffee

The type of coffee you use can greatly impact the flavor of your iced coffee. Light or medium roast coffees with natural sweetness work best at lower temperatures. Coffees processed with the natural or honey method are usually the go-to options for cold brew or iced filter coffees. However, don’t be afraid to experiment and find what works best for you.

Sweeten It Up

If you prefer your iced coffee on the sweeter side, there are a few tricks you can try. Normal sugar doesn’t dissolve easily in cold liquids, so it’s best to make a simple syrup ahead of time. Just mix boiling water with raw sugar, let it cool, and add it to your iced coffee. Alternatively, you can use sweetened condensed milk for a creamy and sweet flavor. And if you really want to indulge, add a scoop of your favorite ice cream to your iced coffee for a delightful treat.

Supercharge Your Iced Coffee

Looking for an extra kick? Freeze some coffee in an ice cube tray and add those cubes to your drink. As they melt, they’ll make your coffee even stronger, not weaker. It’s a great way to supercharge your iced coffees and keep them cool for longer.
