My ultimate Iced Coffee

Iced Coffee

I am an iced coffee addict. I drink it whenever I can and am often disappointed. That’s why I try to make it myself whenever I can and have experimented with different flavours and forms of dairy and have finally come up with my ultimate version.

I like to make mine in a similar way to the classic Vietnamese coffee which is strong black coffee sweetened with condensed milk. What I don’t like however is when the ice melts and waters down the coffee so I like to freeze coffee in ice cube trays and use that to cool down my coffee. Just writing about it has me salivating and believe me, this iced coffee is incredibly addictive!

    How “strong” do you make the coffee? Can you estimate amount of coffee per cup?

      Anita, you should make it as strong as you would drink it. So make each cup as you would drink it.

    I like the same. I buy condensed milk like there is no tomorrow . Have you tried tea and condensed milk . Tea must be strong too. More tea less brewing time = less bitterness. YUMMO

        Perfect! I also now love sweetened condensed milk in my coffee whether it is hot or cold.

    When you say “black coffee”, do you mean espresso or do you mean regular american coffee with nothing added (cream or sugar)?

      Regular American coffee with nothing added will be best.
