Ways to Make Iced Coffee

Strong coffee made in a coffee machine

To make strong coffee, use 1/2 – 1 tablespoon more ground coffee to make a cup in a coffee machine.

Pop it in the freezer for 15 minutes to cool it down quickly or in the refrigerator for at least an hour.

Cold brew coffee

Cold brew is the easiest way to make iced coffee since all the work happens in the refrigerator while you sleep.

Plus, you can make one batch and drink it over a few days.

Nespresso or Keurig

Use a pod or capsule to make a cup of coffee and put it in the refrigerator for an hour or in the freezer for 15 minutes to cool it down.

Instant coffee

For whipped drinks like Dalgona coffee and Greek frappes, instant coffee is a must.

Topping Options

Cold foam

Make any iced coffee cafe-quality by topping it with cold foam.

Take cold milk or half & half, and put it in a French press and move the plunger up and down 40 times. Yup, that’s all there is to it!

Whipped cream

All you need is handheld milk frother (my trick to making whipped cream fast and easy) to whisk together heavy cream and sweetener.

Use flavored syrups to make the whipped cream even tastier.

Iced Coffee Tips

  • Don’t use sugar to sweeten your iced coffee since it’ll just sink down and settle down at the bottom of the cup. Instead, use simple syrup which will mix well with the drink.
  • Make homemade syrups and simple syrups ahead of time and store it in the refrigerator in an airtight container for up to a week.
  • If you want your iced coffee to be super intense, use coffee ice cubes instead of regular ice cubes.
