Iced Coffee


On a hot summer day, what could be better than a tall glass of iced coffee?


You could either stop by your local café to satisfy your craving, or you could make iced coffee at home. If you decide to make it at home, you have a couple of options. The first is cold brewing, which gives you a less bitter coffee taste than simply allowing hot coffee to go cold. To cold brew, soak ground coffee overnight in a cafetiere in a large jug or jar.


A faster method is to take a shot of hot espresso and add it to cold milk. Or you can also add an equal amount of hot coffee and ice and wait for the ice to melt.


There are many ways you can use your favourite NESCAFÉ products to make iced coffee. Try one of the following recipes for a quick, satisfying indulgence on a hot summer day.
