Making unforgettable memories is thirsty work, and nothing beats the heat quite like a deliciously refreshing iced coffee.

There’s something about sipping on a cool glass of coffee over ice to float you through the hot months on a wave of taste bud bliss. Here’s how to make the perfect iced coffee so you’ll never get bored while the temperature soars:

Choose the Right Coffee

As this is such a simple way to enjoy coffee, the quality of the coffee is paramount. To help you create your perfect summer experience on the rocks, Nespresso is launching two Limited Edition Sicilian-inspired coffees, specially designed to be enjoyed over ice: Ispirazione Salentina and Ispirazione Shakerato. After all, no one does coffee quite like the Italians.

Brew Coffee Directly Over Ice

Brewing hot coffee over ice is said to preserve the delicate flavours of the coffee. Iced pour-over tends to be lighter, more delicate, more nuanced and really amplifies the taste experience. By brewing over ice, you can either make a big pitcher for friends, or a single glass for yourself when you need a caffeine kick.

Get Creative With Ice Cubes

Remember, ice is an ingredient, too. Add a little pizazz to your iced coffee by making special iced cubes: create a simple syrup; freeze a few fresh herbs such as lavender, basil or mint in water; or create sweetened condensed milk or melted chocolate cubes for a sweet treat.

Add a Twist

Believe it or not, citrus and coffee make a great match. It gently bumps up the natural acidity in coffee. Pour your espresso over a couple slices of lime and some ice and you’ve got yourself a Guillermo. You can also spice up your coffee with a cinnamon stick or a dash of nutmeg.

Shaken, Not Stirred

Surprise your friends with a bit of flair by shaking your brew up in a shaker. In conjunction with Limited Edition iced coffees, Nespresso has released the View Shaker Mini Kit, which includes a VIEW recipe glass and silicon lid and enables you to shake and mix the ingredients like a barista.


Ispirazione Shakerato (25ml & 40ml) – A full-bodied, smooth iced coffee with cocoa aromas and long lasting roasted notes.

Ispirazione Salentina (25ml & 40ml) – A bold coffee with a smooth and round texture, revealing nutty aromas together with roasted notes.

Creating your ideal summer experience has never been easier, thanks to Nespresso. Nespresso Limited Edition Ispirazione Salentina and Ispirazione Shakerato are available now from Nespresso Boutiques and Booths nationwide, as well as through orders from the Nespresso Club is an award-winning Digital Media, Marketing, and Advertising Company est. 2015, is a Member of the Independent Media Association of South Africa (IMASA), and Brand South Africa's Play Your Part Ambassadors, with a global reach of over 10 million
