10 Classic Coffee Drinks That Are to Die For

The main coffee drinks I want to share with you are staples of my everyday coffee drinking. If you haven't tried any of these nevertheless, I suggest you do, because I think you'll find quite a few are worth coming back to again and again.

"Just Right" Iced Coffee

It’s likely you've had iced coffee that was too sweet, creamy, or watery. As simple as it may seem, good hot coffee drinks can actually be tricky to make.

A big part of making good iced coffee drinks is using flavored coffee ice cubes. It takes an extra step of preparation, but doing so will ensure your coffee doesn't become a watered-down caffeine wannabe. Another key to making good iced coffee is to brew the coffee and then let it cool inside refrigerator for at least two hours. If you use hot, freshly brewed coffee, it will melt the ice cubes instantly.

Would make one serving


1 cup of chilled coffee (refrigerated for at least 2 hours)

1 cup with ice cubes

5 ounces of sweetened condensed milk


1 . Pour chilled coffee into a large cup.

two . Add coffee ice cubes and sweetened condensed milk. Sweeten to taste.

Fresh coffee and a amount of cream never fails to satisfy. I included this because the proportion of coffee to cream is the key to help doing it right.

Makes one serving


4 ounces of freshly brewed coffee

1 tablespoon of ointment


1 . Mix and serve.

Mocha Coffee

This simple, sweet coffee is loved by coffee customers everywhere (who also tend to love chocolate). You can make these coffee drinks as chocolaty as you want by adding pretty much cocoa powder. You can also use a chocolate-flavored creamer if you want even more of a dessert kind of taste.

Makes one serving


1 cup of freshly brewed coffee

1 tablespoon of cocoa powder

1 tablespoon of sugar (or other sweetener)

2 tablespoons of milk (fat-free optional)

Spiced Mocha Coffee

Cafe au Lait

Cafe au Lait are simple coffee drinks that consists of equal parts of fresh brewed coffee and steamed milk. The key to a delicious au Lait, however , is properly "double brewing" ones coffee. What's that? "Double-brewed coffee" is coffee prepared in such a way that it is significantly stronger than normal brewing.

The best way of doing this is running already brewed coffee back through the coffee maker with another batch of fresh grounds (using brewed coffee in the water reservoir). I don't recommend this method, however , because it produces strange-tasting coffee. By reheating coffee drinks, you lose flavor and the end product has a bitter aftertaste.

The double-brewing method for coffee cold drinks I recommend is achieved by simply using twice the normal amount of grounds for the water you're using (with the normal removal time). That is, four tablespoons of grounds for every six ounces of water. This creates coffee with a robust, bold flavor, which is perfect for the Cafe au Lait.

Makes one serving


4 ounces of double-brewed coffee

4 ounces of milk, steamed (fat-free optional)


1 . Brew the coffee and remove it in the heating plate.

2 . If you don't have a machine to steam milk, heat a small saucepan over medium heat. Dans le but de the milk into it. Heat the milk for 3-4 minutes, stirring constantly to avoid a milk crust.

3. Once the milk steams, take it off the stove and pour, at the same time, both the milk and coffee into a serving mug.
