Iced coffee aficionados insist on the coffee being cold-brewed, which makes for a less bitter, more aromatic coffee. You can serve it with or without milk, sweetened or unsweetened.

Ingredients
Ingredients
3-4 heaped tbsp freshly ground coffee
750ml cold water
1-4 sweetener tablets (as desired)
ice cubes
400ml skimmed milk (optional)
Pinch cocoa powder (optional)
Method
  1. Add the coffee and water to an 8 cup cafetiere mix well, cover (but do not plunge) and refrigerate for at least 12 hours or overnight.
  2. Mix well then allow to settle for a few minutes. Plunge the cafetiere then leave to stand for a few more minutes before pouring the coffee into a large jug.
  3. Dissolve sweetener tablets, as preferred, into the coffee then mix in the milk if using and add some ice cubes.
  4. Pour into glasses packed with ice cubes and serve sprinkled with a little cocoa powder.
Chefs tips
  • Coarser ground coffee is better for cold-brewing.
  • If you don’t have a cafetiere you can just strain the coffee through muslin or a paper coffee filter.
  • You could just make coffee as normal and chill it down if short of time.
