5 Most Delicious Cold Coffee Recipes

There is probably no more attractive time than summer: hotter and longer days, fewer clothes, more fun in the fresh air, and, of course, the cold coffee season - a lifeline for caffeine lovers or just a refreshing dessert for everyone.

Since you can find a coffee machine in almost every office, making cold coffee here is even faster and easier than at home. Just need to know a few small tricks that coffee experts Nestle Professional will share.

And if you still make coffee at work, you can choose from other alternatives today, such as rent a coffee machine for the office or buy a new coffee maker for the office.

We usually don’t bother and order cold coffee to take away in a cafe, but making it in the office or at home is really very simple and quick. And that's not the only plus:

  • The syrup used in cafes is very high in sugar, and by making it yourself, you can adjust the amount of sugar and even make a healthier syrup that will last long.
  • Order a few cups of cold coffee in a cafe every day - a luxury. And in the office or at home, you can make a few cups of coffee at once.
  • When making cold coffee yourself, you can experiment with different ingredients, invent perfect recipes for yourself and share them with colleagues.

How to make it by yourself?

Making cold coffee is much easier than it seems. All you need is a little imagination and you will be able to create unique cocktails yourself and treat them to family, friends, and colleagues at work. There is more than one way to make cold coffee, but we recommend the 2 simplest:

  1. The fastest way is to make coffee immediately with ice cream

Make your favorite coffee. We recommend making it a little stronger than usual, as the ice will dissolve the drink a little as it melts. First, put the ice cream in the glass and then pour the coffee - the drink will cool down instantly, retaining all the aftertaste.

  • Mixing coffee ice cream with milk

In the evening, prepare your favorite coffee, pour it into ice cream tins, and let it freeze. You can use the ice cream at any time: put it in a glass and pour almonds or other favorite milk.
