Iced coffee drinks have become increasingly popular in last few years. You can get one at any local coffee shop as well as at your local fast food restaurants. Now you can make your own at home with these tips for making iced coffee drinks at home.
According to the National Coffee Association, the percentage of Americans who drink iced coffee beverages are at an all time high since 2012. Following the popularity of cappuccinos and mocha lattes, consumers are discovering that coffee is just as tasty – and even more refreshing – when served cold.
Iced coffee is as easy to prepare as iced tea. There are a variety of cold brew options, such as flavoring syrups, cold milk, chocolate and spices, allow you to create personalized coffee mixtures that are just as amazing as those served in your favorite cafe.
Iced coffee drinks such as iced vanilla mocha, iced rum coffee and iced latte are easy to make at home. Below are some tips for refreshing iced coffee drinks.
4 Easy Tips for Making Iced Coffee Drinks at Home
- Pour your favorite flavoring syrup into the cup first. To complete the drink, pour in espresso or cold coffee, then put in the ice, and top it off with cold dairy or non dairy milk such as almond milk.
- Don’t let your iced coffee become watered down. Cool your favorite coffee beverage with ice cubes made from fresh-brewed coffee instead of water.
- Use a machine that produces a high quality coffee or espresso. The Capresso CoffeeTeam Luxe, for example, grinds coffee beans right before brewing and allows you to control the strength of your coffee.
- Be creative. Add a personalized touch to your iced coffee beverages with whipped cream, chocolate shavings, nutmeg or cinnamon.
