Cold Coffee Recipe or How to make Cold Coffee at home? or Recipe of Iced Coffee

Most of the couples love to spend a quality time together and they prefer to go in a cafe or coffee lounge. Now there are lot of coffee retail chain in India and over the weekends you find all the outlets are over crowded. Instead of spending quality time together, you can practice standing in a queue and do a chit chat with your partner. By that time your turn comes, chit chat must have turned in to a heated argument or you are too tired of standing. So the end result is mood completely gone to enjoy quality time and coffee. Sometimes the price of a tall glass of coffee burn our pocket too! Let's learn how to make cold coffee at home.

Before learning the step-by-step cold coffee recipe, let's discuss in detail about cold coffee with few FAQs. When I first visited India's first coffee retail chain more than a decade ago, I was bit puzzled by seeing their menu and didn't know what to order from their long menu list. Thankfully, each of the items (read coffee varieties) has clear description about the ingredients present in it. I am big fan of coffee from my school days, so each time I visited coffee retail chain outlet I tried different flavours of coffee😀. Has someone done similar behaviour like mine 😎? Let's start from the very basic questions.

What is cold coffee?

Cold coffee is nothing but Iced coffee. It is a type of coffee beverage served chilled. Cold coffee was first originated in mid 19th century and evolved since then. 

What are the different varieties of cold coffee?

There are many varieties of cold coffee. including Cappuccino, Irish Coffee, Americano, Turkish Coffee, Mocha, Caramel, Hazelnut and many more. Each one taste different from the other and there is also difference in the making process. Sometimes the difference is subtle and sometimes it's a major difference. However, each one tastes awesome to a coffee lover like me. 😍 Now it is really difficult to make out and remember each difference for common people. Recently, I visited a café which beautifully portrayed the different flavours of coffee. I immediately clicked the pic and sharing with you all.

Know your coffee

Hope you folks find this image helpful to know your coffee. For me, it was a real quick guide to know my coffee. 

According to the above list, here I have shared the basic cappuccino cold coffee recipe with vanilla ice cream. 

Can I prepare my cold coffee without ice cream?

 Absolutely yes! You can prepare cold coffee without ice cream. Instead of ice cream you can use heavy whipped cream. Actually, ice cream or whipped cream adds extra creamy ness in your cold coffee. If you want to avoid both, in that case add chilled full fat milk. If you are cold sensitive, you can avoid adding crushed ice too. 

Which coffee is recommended for cold coffee preparation? Instant coffee or filtered coffee.

 You can use either of them, however, instant coffee makes your job really easy. If you are obsessed with filter coffee then always use freshly brewed filtered coffee decoction. Avoid using left-over decoction.
