Iced coffee

As the name suggests, iced coffee is a drink prepared from cold coffee. However, due to the intrinsic bitterness of brewed coffee, preparation for iced coffee is often by infusing in cold water. This is carried out by allowing the coffee to steep for several hours before filtering.

Many coffee shop chains will sell their popular coffees in an ‘iced’ version; however as sugar does not dissolve in the cold liquid, it needs to be added as a syrup. However sugar substitutes will readily dissolve in cold coffee.

Iced coffee is also available as a soft drink in cans and bottles.
