Iced Coffee Things

I don’t drink hot beverages. They make me feel yucky and after many times of thinking I’ll just try it one more time (which ended in me feeling sick. Every time), I decided once and for all that hot drinks are just not my cup of tea (no pun intended. Alright, fine. Pun intended). On school camps in primary school, I was the only kid who didn’t want hot chocolate and marshmallows. I don’t drink tea (which apparently makes me a very strange Indian), and I don’t like coffee (well, hot coffee. Why would I be writing this if I didn’t like coffee?)

After many years of drinking juice at and restaurants when our family went out for afternoon tea (read: everyone drinks tea – except me), I decided it was time to venture out of beverage-comfort zone and try something a tad more sophisticated than fruit juice. Enter iced-coffee (please, please, please not to be confused with coffee milkshake). I was pleasantly surprised when I had an iced-latte for the first time. It was the perfect thing for me – the taste of coffee, but in its icier form. (Side-note: anyone else feel their hearts sink when coffee shops and cafés don’t do iced versions of coffee? 21st century, people!)

A few years and many iced lattes later, and I still love them. I’ve had all kinds from different little cafés and restaurants around the city, and so, I thought I’d share a few of my favourite spots to grab a really good iced-coffee. (Iced coffees take many names: iced frappes, frosted lattes, iced lattes…)

  1. Vida e Caffe
  2. Yours Truly
  3. Seattle Coffee Co
  4. Lavazza Coffee Co
  5. Woolworths Café

After many attempts to make my own, I’ve also finally found a recipe that I can make at home and I LOVE it. The perfect start to any day.

So there goes my little ramble about iced coffee (which may or may not have been fueled by caffeine. Iced caffeine).

What are your favourite coffee spots?
