What Type of Coffee Should I Use for an Iced Coffee Recipe?
When making iced coffee, you should use high-quality beans to ensure that your drink has the best flavor.
Of course, we highly recommend Bean So Blessed Coffee as we use only the highest quality beans, which are roasted and ground (if you choose) to order, ensuring the freshest coffee.
You can buy the beans and grind them yourself or opt for pre-ground. It’s up to you!
Coffee vs. Espresso
There are many different types of coffees, and each has its unique flavor. I personally like my coffee strong – literally! To get that extra kick in the morning, pick a dark roast over medium or blonde roasts.
There are two different ways you can make iced coffee; with espresso shots or brewed coffee..
You will get a stronger coffee flavor with espresso shots. This is what we at Bean So Blessed prefer when making an iced coffee recipe because the espresso shots blend with the ice to create a cold liquid right away, and then all you have to do is add your other ingredients.

How to Make Simple Syrup
(often found in recipes for iced coffee)
Cold drinks don’t dissolve sugar very well, which is why I recommend making a simple syrup. All you need are a few ingredients already in your kitchen.
- 1 cup boiled water
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- Any additional extracts you wish (caramel, vanilla, coconut, etc.) – Optional
How to Make it:
- Pour your boiled water into your sugar in a bowl.
- Add in your optional extracts or flavoring
- Place in the fridge for 1 hour before using (You can also cool it more quickly by placing it in the freezer)
