Iced coffee: Easy, fast and tasty

Like so many others, we also have a fondness for a mouth-watering iced coffee when the sun starts to shine in the summer months and the temperature outside rises. And we’re hardly the only ones, because the iced coffee comes in a sea of ​​different flavors, and it just seems to become more and more popular with each passing year.

And that makes good sense. Because few of us can do without coffee’s caffeine kick, even though it’s summer. But the warm sunny hours of the afternoon do not exactly invite hot coffee on the terrace. Fortunately, it is super easy to make your very own iced coffee at home, and here we come up with our take on the best recipe for iced coffee.

There are countless ways you can make iced coffee. And no matter how you brew your coffee, there is a version that suits you – as long as you have plenty of ice cubes

Which coffee should I use for my iced coffee?

Many people find that their iced coffee becomes watery as the ice melts. To avoid this, it is important to have a coffee that can withstand and taste through the milk and water from melted ice cubes. Therefore, a dark-roasted coffee must be used, and plenty of it should be used.

A rule of thumb says that approx. 7 grams of coffee for a cup of 125 ml. In connection with iced coffee, we recommend doubling the amount and maybe even a little more. If you are brewing espresso coffee, a suitable amount will be 15 grams of coffee – But it is also about maturity. If you make iced coffee with coffee capsules instead, you must use two espresso coffee capsules. Here we recommend Corcasan’s espresso capsules, which contain lots of flavor and a pleasant chocolate sweetness.

Although the coffee must be dark roasted, you still have to be careful about choosing one that is too dark and tastes bitter. The bitterness will be enhanced by the rapid cooling that occurs when we pour freshly brewed coffee over ice. Therefore, you must choose a coffee that also contains a natural sweetness and preferably a little acid that can cut through the bitterness. We have experienced very good results with Café de Altura’s dark roast coffee.

Ingredients:

  • 1 double espresso shot or 2 coffee capsules
  • Approx. 150 ml milk (according to desired strength)
  • Ice cubes
  • Possibly. a little sugar or syrup

Course of action

  • Fill a glass with ice cubes and pour in the milk.
  • But make sure there is room for a double espresso of 60 ml. You can adjust the amount of milk, depending on whether you want your iced coffee strong or light in taste.
  • Brew your double espresso shot on your espresso or capsule machine. If you want a little extra sweetness, add sugar or syrup to the espresso coffee now. Cold coffee can have a slightly strange bitterness, and here sugar can take the worst off-taste.
  • Pour your coffee into the milk as seen in the photo and video above. Insert a straw and, if necessary, garnish with a little milk foam or a small sprinkle of cocoa.

Homemade iced coffee without espresso machine

Not everyone has an espresso or capsule machine standing at home. But fear not, you can easily brew iced coffee anyway. If you are brewing piston jug or filter coffee, just brew the coffee twice as strong as you normally would. Pour the coffee into a glass filled with ice cubes – make sure there is enough ice to cool the coffee completely. Pour in some milk, or alternatively drink the coffee black – a clear favorite here with us.

With a plunger jug or filter coffee, the result won’t be quite as good as the version down at your favorite café. So if you are a big fan of the cold coffee drink and have plans to drink homemade iced coffee all summer long. But at the same time not wanting to spend absurd amounts of money on an espresso or capsule machine, we would clearly recommend investing in the significantly cheaper AeroPress coffee maker. With our dark-roasted Café de Alturas and an AeroPress in hand, you can make a fantastic iced coffee that tastes just as good as the ones you buy down at the café. At the same time, you can start brewing another cold café favorite, namely cold brew coffee.

If you are in doubt about how to brew espresso on AeroPress, there are lots of different brewing guides online.

Iced coffee that does not taste like water

We are often asked how to prevent iced coffee from becoming watery in taste. Most of us have tried standing with a glass of iced coffee, which at first sip tastes absolutely perfect, but which, as the ice melts, becomes more and more watery.

To avoid this, you can make a portion of iced coffee that is frozen like ice cubes. Ice cubes of coffee are a smart way to get around the problem of diluted coffee.
