How to Make the Perfect Iced Coffee

Iced cold coffee is a favorite in the warmer months, but making it at home can be hit and miss. 

The experts at Map Coffee share their top tips for making the perfect Iced Coffee this summer.

1.  Brew your coffee extra strong to combat the melting ice.

One big problem with iced coffee is well, the melting ice! To prevent your coffee losing its flavour, brew it extra strong, so the ice won’t be an issue.

2.  Better yet, freeze some coffee into ice cubes so your coffee never gets watery!

Don’t want to worry about watery coffee? Well, why not freeze your coffee into ice cubes? That way you get the best of both worlds - cold coffee that’s undiluted.

Clever tip: freeze coffee into ice cube trays

3.  Add a touch of cinnamon to your iced coffee for a little zing.

Why should tea have all the fun? Add a touch of cinnamon while brewing your coffee for a little zing in your drink. Not a fan of cinnamon? Substitute with your favourite spice.

4.  For an added treat on a hot day, a scoop of ice cream is the perfect way to finish off that iced coffee.

Iced coffee doesn’t have to be just a drink, it can also be a delicious dessert. Simply top off your glass with a scoop of ice cream for that added treat. Hot tip: Salted caramel ice cream is perfect if you want to get extra fancy with it!
