The Old Favourite – simple Espresso based iced coffee in 4 easy steps!

What is better than being able to throw together a quick, simple and delicious cold coffee with ingredients and equipment you have at home? With summer at the door, let our homemade caramel iced coffee be your new morning breeze.

There are several methods to make iced coffee. Some involve fancy gadgets, like a chemex or an aeropress, but you can make equally great tasting iced coffee without all the fuss. We like the cold brew filter method or this espresso based iced coffee, both quick to make and delicious to taste.

Ingredients (for one person):

  • 3/4 cup milk (200ml)
  • 1 tea spoons of caramel syrup (or any flavour that you like)
  • Espresso shots with your favourite coffee capsules or coffee beans (according to your liking, we usually use a double shot espresso, so roughly 40ml)
  • Ice cubes
  • The fanciest drinking jar that you have

Equipment:

  • Coffee capsules machine or your favourite coffee brewing gadget
  • Measuring jug
  • Cocktail shaker

How to make an homemade caramel iced coffee:

1. Prepare the coffee shots.

2. Fill your jar/cup with 4-5 ice cubes, and add the coffee.

3. Combine the milk and syrup and froth the mixture using the shaker.

4. Pour the milk mix into the iced mixture…. Et voilà! Enjoy your delicious homemade iced coffee!

A great alternative is to mix all the ingredients in a blender and adding a scoop or two of vanilla ice cream. Or, for a real treat, you can add some chocolate bars (such as Bounty), or cookies (such Oreo) or a chocolate brownie. Then to go completely mad, you could top it off with a good dollop of whipped cream or a handful of chocolate chips! Yummy!

The basic drink is delicious, the additions are great too. Whatever you go for, you will not be disappointed. Believe us, we weren’t not!

Happy Drinking!
