Want to discover something new, for the hot summer days? What about drinking an iced espresso? Here's a recipe from coffee colleagues from down-under, Pea Berrys Coffee Roasters:
- Grab a 300-350ml glass
- Add ice up to 1/3 of the glass
- Fill it with full-cream milk (if you like milk), leaving a 2cm gap at the top
- Pour a fresh double (Moving Beans :)) espresso over the top
Instead of ice cubes, you can also add ice cream, where Vanilla works particularly well.
Now, what about sugar? It turns out that the human body perceives food as less sweet at lower temperatures. In other words, the espresso will naturally taste more sour than when served hot. If you want to add sugar, remember that sugar does not dissolve that easily in your cold drink. Either add it into the hot espresso before you pour it onto the ice; or use liquid sugar.
Oh, and almond milk, soy milk, or lactose free milk work just fine too!
Enjoy the summer with a tasty coffee coming from one of our sustainable Nespresso-compatible coffee capsules, poured over a some cold ice cubes.

What does it mean that coffee has strength? Is it going to knock me out? Because there is no standard that provides coffee strength guidance, this term has been widely misunderstood, used in very different contexts and, as a result, it creates confusion amongst many.
So, is acidity in coffee good or bad? Well… it depends. There are good and bad acids where taste is concerned. Though there are many sources of acidity in coffee, it is only a mildly acidic beverage, with a pH of around 5, as compared to the pH of 2 in wine.
Water 💧 is the quiet and elusive partner of coffee. You need it to make coffee and it can change the flavour of it depending on the subtle differences in water composition. Recently, there has been a resurrection of research around the water composition and the quality of coffee. 👩🏽🔬 A key notion to take on board is that good tasting water does not necessarily mean good tasting coffee. For example, the bicarbonate content that makes a branded bottled water very smooth water to drink is basically responsible for removing acidity and sweetness in coffee.
