Refreshing coffees for the summer!

The heat wave hits Montréal but you can’t give up your caffeine dose? No problem, here are our refreshing recipes to satisfy our coffee-addicts during this summer season! Iced coffee, cold coffee or chilled coffee, our original recipes will certainly please your taste buds.

 

The Iced Coffee

Prepare an espresso coffee, add a bit of sugar at your convenience and pour it all into a shaker with some crushed ice. Mix and its ready! For a simple alternative, simply add a bit of milk and you’ll have an iced latte. For the greedy coffee addicts, we suggest the « affogato », an Italian delicacy. The coffee is served « affogato », literally “drowned” in a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

 

The cold brew: the trendy summer drink!

  • Choose your favourite coffee beans and grind it coarsely
  • Use 1 dose of coffee for 5 doses of water
  • Pour the ground coffee into a container
  • Cover with water
  • Shake until well mixed
  • Close the container and let infuse in your fridge between 18-20 hours! The secret to a good cold brew coffee? A loooong infusion.
  • Filter (with a classic paper filter). Filter once again if needed, only conserve the precious beverage.
  • To add a touch of sweetness, add sugar (preferably a liquid sugar).
  • That’s it! All you have to do now is enjoy! You can dilute your cold brew with some fresh water if it’s too dark for you.

Good to know: Your cold brew can be conserved up to 2 weeks in your fridge.
