Coffee through the seasons

The best part about being a coffee addict is that there is a coffee for all seasons!

Whether it is a scorching hot Aussie summer or a snowy winter, there’s no need to miss out on your coffee fix because the weather is not conducive to your favourite drink.

Coffee comes in all shapes, sizes, types and forms. From the Espresso with milk to the coffee with chai tea, the coffee with liqueur to the iced coffee, there is a taste for everyone and a variation for every season – just the way you like it!

The good news is that there is no need to go without your caffeine fix just because it is hot. Although cold coffee drinks can contain any type of ingredients you so wish, such as fruit, different types of milk or even tea, there are some officially recognised and standardised cold coffee drinks that many people are fond of all over the world. Some of these include:

Iced Latte: Espresso in cold milk and poured over ice.

Iced Coffee: Typically refers to a cold espresso, milk and ice cream, with cream or without.

Mocha Frappuccino: This involves adding chocolate and cream with blended ice to provide a creamy cool-me-down.

Frappe: This involves foam-covered iced coffee with either milk or no milk, depending upon what you like.

Polazzo: This typically involves two shots of espresso and cream that is sweetened according to taste. The espresso is cooled instantly after being made.

Or here’s a new one! Banoffe Espresso Smoothie: Make a smoothie with banana, dates, almond milk, and of course a double shot of coffee!

So, as you can see, these are just some of the cool, delicious and refreshing cold coffee drinks that can be consumed in summer. There’s no need to cut back on coffee in summer! Why not explore the many cold variations of your favourite beverage that are out there. Let’s face it, what could be better than drinking coffee all year round?
