As the winter season is coming to an end, even though the hot cup of cappuccino does give the necessary boost, is it really refreshing? With the sun shining brighter than usual, the urge to drink something cold to soothe your throat and get refreshed increases. But apart from the usual coffee beans blended with chilled milk, there are many more types of cold coffees that you should try.

Pair this springtime with a not-so-usual cup of cold coffee. Some of the most popular additions to the classic cold coffee are fruits, chocolate syrup, whipped cream, and even peanut butter. So, why don’t you take your cold coffee to the next level by trying to make these types of cold brews at home?

Iced Coffee

If you are a hardcore coffee lover and prefer black coffee over coffee with milk, iced coffee will be the perfect cold brew for you. 

You can make a perfect cup of iced coffee by making the same black coffee that you love and blending it with ice and sugar or any artificial sweetener as per your choice. On top of it, you can choose to add whipped cream for a foamy effect and drink it. This will not only keep you fresh but also help you beat the heat.


For people who like creamy cold coffee, a frappuccino topped with whipped cream will be their favourite. You can make frappuccino by brewing some coffee beans and setting it aside to cool down. In the meantime, you can take an electric mixer or a hand blender and mix a scoop of vanilla ice cream, milk, and sugar. You can add more milk based on your preference of consistency and blend till you get a frothy coffee. Pour it into a tall glass, add whipped cream and sprinkle some cocoa powder on top. And you’re ready to pause, take a big sip, and treat your soul.

Cappuccino Cold Coffee

Cappuccinos are one of the most widely consumed types of hot coffee. But when the temperature rises, you can even enjoy the flavour of cappuccino as a cold brew as well. You can prepare it by brewing a shot of expresso. Till it cools down, take chilled milk along with some ice cubes and blend them together till you get a thick and creamy mixture. Then, pour it on top of the expresso shot and enjoy the richness of coffee as an impeccable cold brew.

Coconut Cold Coffee

To get a beachy-vibe with your coffee, nothing works better than adding a hint of coconut. And to get a feeling of the sea waves touching your feet with this cold brew isn’t that hard. All you need to do is replace the regular milk with coconut milk. Start the process by brewing coffee and adding it to coconut milk, sugar, and ice cubes. Now, blend the ingredients with a hint of vanilla extract. Pour it into a mug and garnish with grated coconut for a better effect.

Caramel Cold Coffee

Caramel is one of the most cherished additions to cold coffee that makes the cold brew indulgent. 

To make caramel cold coffee, you can start by making classic milk-based coffee and blending it with caramel syrup and ice cubes. After getting the desired consistency, pour into a tall glass and then add whipped cream on top. To give it a more caramelised touch, add some more caramel sauce on top of the whipped cream. Take a paper straw and divulge in this decadent brew.

Chocolate Frappe

Nothing beats the combination of chocolate and coffee in a cold brew. If you’re a chocoholic, you should definitely make a cup of chocolate frappe. For this, take a shot of expresso, a scoop of chocolate ice cream, chilled milk, ice cubes, and some chocolate syrup. Blend them together in an electric mixer or use a hand blender till it comes out thick and frothy. Now, pour the coffee into a glass and add whipped cream on top. Since there’s never too much chocolate, add chocolate chips and enjoy their crunch with each delicious sip.
