Great Summer Coffee - a Cool Treat


Warm sun, long days, and a great coffee? Yes, coffee in the middle of the summer - it's not just for the cool seasons anymore. With a single serve espresso machine, or even a single serve coffee brewer, you can brew a quick coffee over ice, and enjoy a cool coffee drink that welcomes in the heat of the day.

Here are a couple of ways to enjoy a cool coffee this summer:

1) Brew and Cool your own espresso - Iced Americano take a shot(s) of espresso, ice, a splash of milk and sugar to taste. I use a couple of shots and brew right into the glass to get a tall glass of refreshment.

2) Save the morning coffee for a cool drink later - If you are using a drip coffee maker, brew a little extra, and chill the left-overs as soon as you can in the refrigerator. Pour over ice later in the day or tomorrow.

3) Ready to Drink Chilled coffees - Starbucks and their Doubleshot are the best ones for my taste, and they are available in most grocery stores, but look around; you'll find Illy Issimo, and others too. Buy a few and see which ones you like, and you'll have a quick pick-me-up when you need it.

4) Hit the coffee shop - sure, you can make it at home, but sometimes it's great to indulge. Set aside some time to explore a few different ones in week. The next time you want a quick drink, you'll know what you like.

TIP: If you are brewing your own, I would recommend an all Arabica coffee blend. I've had a few Robusta espresso blends over ice and that solid coffee flavor that is so classically Italian as an espresso, comes across as a sour burnt rubber flavor on ice.
