The first thing you’ll want to do is brew the coffee at double strength as the ice will dilute the coffee flavour. You can also adjust the amount of ice you add to the hot coffee if you prefer the coffee to be stronger, but beware that if you add too little ice, you could end up with a tepid brew rather than an ice-cold drink.
Then fill a glass halfway with ice and pour the brewed coffee on top. Add cold milk if that’s your fave, evaporated milk for a creamier beverage or add in coconut milk for an iced coffee with an exotic edge.
You can also make coffee ice cubes in advance for those hot summer days as another way to retain that strong coffee flavour. Simply pour room-temperature coffee into ice cube trays and let freeze. Then fill a glass with frozen coffee cubes and top up with hot coffee for an ingenious way to enjoy iced coffee without the watered-down effect.
Another more obvious option with the NESCAFÉ® Dolce Gusto® is to flip it to cold brew and purchase the Cappuccino Ice capsules. Place a glass half-full with ice under the spout, insert the white milk capsule first, then when complete, add the silver coffee capsule and you’re good to go with a cool-down, wake-up beverage. You can also choose the Nestea Peach Iced Tea pods for an alternative sweet sip on a sweltering day.
With plenty of coffee flavours to choose from, ranging from the aromatic, floral Catuai do Brazil and milky Café au Lait to the rich Mocha, silky Green Tea Latte, exotic Chai Tea Latte and more, NESCAFÉ® Dolce Gusto®’s entire range can be enjoyed hot or cold, and it’s as easy as pie to whip up a cool cuppa.
