Summer: The Sweet Smell of Coffee and A Cool Breeze

It’s all you need!

The Summer Forecast: Bright and sunny with the chill of iced coffee in the air.

EBC-Iced-Coffees-NL-2018

Every summer, we share the newest recipes for iced coffee. EnjoyBetterCoffee.com has all the coffees that you want for iced coffee drinks (and for anytime you want a coffee). Our coffees are made for the European market so they have slightly stronger and more intense flavor profiles than coffee made for the U.S, making them perfect for that iced coffee.

This week, we have selected several European iced coffee drinks that will help you enjoy your summer in a cool way.


If you’ve been thinking of ordering from us, then now is the time. We’ll give you 10% off your purchase of $30 or more when you order from our site.*

Italian Iced Coffee Two Ways

Affogato-2018
You’ll find Caffe Freddo in most coffee bars in Italy. Straight espresso is stored in a freezer and served as a coffee slush. Or try espresso over a scoop of vanilla gelato or ice cream and you have an Affogato, perfect for dessert. We have a wide range of Italian espresso, including Bristot, Caffe Vergnano, Illy and Lavazza; you bring the ice cream.


Germans Know Eiskaffee

Eiskaffee means “ice-cream coffee” and this recipe delivers a creamy iced coffee in no time at all. Use one of our great German brands. Tchibo Instant coffee and Jacobs Instant coffee are two of the most popular brands on our site and in Germany. Tchibo and Jacobs also make full-flavored ground and whole bean coffee if you prefer.

Eiskaffee-2018Ingredients:

  • 1 quart strong instant or fresh-brewed coffee
  • 2 scoops of ice cream (per drink)
  • Whipped cream
  • Grated sweet chocolate to garnish

Directions:

  1. Make the coffee. Allow to cool to room temperature, then chill in fridge.
  2. Into a tall glass, place 2 scoops of vanilla ice cream.
  3. Pour the cooled coffee into the tall glass, leaving a little room below the rim.
  4. Top with whipped cream and sprinkle with chocolate. Enjoy.

In Greece, It’s Frappé

When the Summer Olympics was last held in Athens, Frappé was a huge hit among the tourists. Nescafe instant coffee is the recommended instant in Greece because it gets foamy. You’ll need a blender or cocktail shaker.

FrappeIngredients:

  • 1 ½ – 3 teaspoons instant coffee
  • 2/3 cup cold water
  • Sugar, Milk and ice cubes (optional)

Directions:

  1. Add coffee, sugar and a splash of water to a cocktail shaker or blender. Shake or blend until the mixture forms a thick and frothy foam.
  2. Pour the foam into a tall glass, then stir in the remaining water, sugar, milk and ice if using. Enjoy with a straw.

NOTE: Variations on this drink include versions without sugar, medium sweetened, very sweet and without milk.


Iced Coffee Add-Ins Can Spice It Up:

ESPRESSO-DRINK-W-TONIC-200px* Try a strip of lemon peel, twisted over the glass, then rubbed on the rim of the iced coffee. Very refreshing!

* Pour a shot of espresso over a glass of tonic water and ice. Bitter and sweet.

* Mix 1 cup of milky tea and 1 cup of strong coffee, then serve over ice. Creamy and smooth.


As always, enjoy better coffee and thanks from the EnjoyBetterCoffee Team!

The Best Of Italy – It’s Closer Than You Think!

There are a handful of delicacies in the world that you immediately associate with its country of origin: Apple pie from America; white meat sausages from Germany; syrup waffle cookies from Holland; croissants from France…well, you get the idea. This week, we are looking at Italy, and its iconic foods, in particular coffee, of course, and the coffee-flavored dessert, Tiramisu.
Italian-coffee-and-Tiramisu-400pxTiramisu, literally translated as “pick me up” or “lift me up,” is a dessert made from cake dipped in coffee, layered with whipped mascarpone cheese, sugar, and eggs, sprinkled with cocoa. You might be surprised to know that the cake’s provenance has long been in question. One of the most popular beliefs has its invention during the 1960’s at a restaurant in Treviso. Another possible origin is a World War II dessert made for soldiers to pick them up with caffeine and alcohol. It may even date back to the 17th century in Tuscany, where layered desserts were popular. Regardless of where it started, traditional tiramisu is Italy’s dessert. We have included a recipe for tiramisu below – it’s really just a trifle, a layered dessert. So enjoy!
