Three unique iced coffee recipes to get you through the hot summer days

Coffee is a spiritual experience for many people. From the roasting of the beans to the milk selection, a well-crafted cup of coffee has become an integral part of daily life.

Whether you’re a fan of flat whites, lattes, or Americanos, there’s a brew for everyone – but for one demographic, the hype has shifted away from the hot stuff.

According to a study conducted by Allegra World Coffee Portal Research and Analysis, young coffee connoisseurs are all about the iced beverage, with 37% of people under the age of 30 consuming iced coffee on a weekly basis. Additionally, the data indicated that an increasing number of Starbucks-wielding tastemakers are opting for experimental concoctions, igniting a trend towards exotic flavours.

With the scorching summer sun beating down, now is the ideal time to whip up a refreshing and flavorful iced beverage for your next caffeine fix – and no, you do not have to be under 30. Nespresso has shared three simple iced coffee recipes that are ideal for a quick pick-me-up at home, an on-the-go refreshment, or a catch-up with a friend.

Caffesso, on the other hand, sells Nespresso-compatible capsules at a lower price point, while Allpress Espresso, a local favourite, also sells compatible pods. Additionally, supermarkets stock a variety of capsules ranging from Nescafe to Starbucks to fit any machine.
