What you'll learn:


Ingredients used in this recipe:

1. Espresso coffee 2. Cold tap water 3. Ice cubes 4. Optionally: a sweetener or milk



1. Choose coffee beans

You can choose to use any coffee bean of choice. I recommend a dark roast, as this makes for the best espresso coffee.

2. Grind the coffee

Grind the coffee beans into a fine grind. This can change depending on the coffee brewer you're going to use.

3. Brew espresso coffee

Brew two espresso shots using a coffee brewer of choice. I made my espressos using the AeroPress.

4. Fill a glass with ice

Fill a glass of choice with enough ice to cool the drink completely. Use a bit more if you plan to add the hot espresso straight into it.

5. Add espresso

Add your espresso coffee to the ice-filled glass. If you want to sweeten your coffee, you can best do that now.

6. Top with water

Top the espresso coffee with cold tap water.

7. Serve the coffee

You can best serve the coffee with a straw if you've added a sweetener to your coffee.

8. Add a splash of milk

Optionally, add a splash of milk to your iced Americano and enjoy!
