Nespresso Iced Coffee

This will be my last iced-coffee post this year. Promise!

Nespresso Iced Coffee


I know I wrote all about how I love cold brewed iced coffee a couple of weeks ago. But I also want to share with you my instant go-to iced coffee for when I’ve run out of coffee syrup and I don’t want to have to wait 12 to 15 hours for my caffeine hit! I go to the trusty Nespresso machine. Almost everyone has a pod coffee machine of some sort in Switzerland. The simple question “Would you like a coffee?” has become quite a lengthy process since the introduction of the Nespresso machine! It’s now “what colour would you like?”, “long or short?”, “frothy milk?”, “sugar?”… and now “hot or iced?”. I have one wicked friend who frequently answers “yes” to all of the questions. One day I’m going to work out how to combine all of the above into one coffee!

Making iced coffee with your Nespresso machine is actually really simple to do. Just take your favourite coffee flavour (I’ve still got a hefty stash of the limited edition nut flavours that came out a while ago, but I’ve been told the new vanilla, caramel and chocolate limited flavours are fabulous in iced coffee too!) and put a shot or two into a cocktail shaker or jar. Add sugar if you wish, quickly stirring a little to dissolve it and then throw in a handful of ice.

Close up your cocktail shaker or jar and shake until your coffee is nice and cool!

And there you have it! An iced coffee hit in minutes, instead of 15 hours 😉

    Hi! Are those colorful rectangles in the second picture sugar cubes? How can I find those?!

      They are sugar. I bought them at Manor in Lausanne. But if you’re looking for something special in sugar form I can thoroughly recommend CANÀSUC. They make some of the most amazing sugar cubes ever. Including birds that sit on the side of your teacup!
      Next time I’m in Manor I’ll find out the brand of the coloured sugar plaques for you too 🙂

    How nice, Yum. I usually think of adding cream and ice cream but this is a great way to have ice coffee without those calorie trimmings and I know it will taste good, with the nespresso citiz. Sometimes we need a reminder to make things differently and the nutty flavours sound good! thanks will give it a go!
