Previously, I posted a simple version of iced coffee using instant coffee. But let me show you how to make a great tasting iced coffee using your regular coffee brewer
How to Make Iced Coffee with Drip Brewer
Few more tips on making iced coffee.. since I know how much sugar I need for my coffee, I add my sugar, Truvia, right after the coffee is brewed when it’s still hot. That way, I know the sugar is perfectly dissolved in my coffee. Another one is that I usually put my glass in the freezer for few minutes after putting ice coffee cubes. That makes the drink really chill when it’s served.
Lastly, after you are done with brewing, you are going to put another 4 cups of coffee and brew it again. You will be using the left over for making ice coffee cubes for later. When ice cubes are made, make sure to store them in a zip lock. Or your ice coffee cubes will taste/smell like whatever is in your freezer.
Iced Caffe Latte is actually very simple to make if you have an espresso machine at home. I don’t have the machine, but I have a CBTL’s coffee brewer that can also brew espresso using a capsule. It tastes awesome and the machine is very inexpensive. So it takes me less than 5 minutes to make a perfect cup of iced Caffee Latte from home. If you don’t have an espresso brewing machine, check out our brewed iced coffee recipe.
Pour your favorite milk in to a glass cup. When your espresso is ready, pour it in the cup. Please note that coffee ice cubes are not added yet. You will be putting them the last, otherwise, the espresso will dilute. In order to maintain the integrity of the taste of the espresso, use milk first, then espresso.
You may be tempted to use foamed milk on your iced coffee, but it’s not going to taste good. If you still want to try, go ahead :)
Lastly, add syrup or sweeteners as needed. I personally like to use Truvia and caramel syrup.
