Follow my steps below to make a homemade Iced Americano like you are the ultimate home barista!


Some tips before you start:


1) If you are using a sweetener (sugar, syrups) make sure to add it in the cup where you are going to pour the espresso. The hot espresso will make sure to break it down. Give it a stir to mix it through after you have pulled your espresso shot.


2) If you don't own a portafilter espresso machine you can make your espresso either by using an automatic coffee capsule machine, a moka pot or even an Aeropress. You will not get the exact same result as a portafilter machine but it will be close!


3) For fruity flavor notes I would suggest you pick Ethiopian coffee beans but if you like more chocolate and nutty notes then a Brazilian would be a great choice!

My name is Vasileia and I’m here because i decided to combine my two favourite things: writing and coffee. Don’t ever make me choose between filter and espresso, although I do have a soft spot for flat whites. I love travelling around the world and visiting coffee shops but my biggest goal is to visit a coffee farm, to see where it all starts! Feel free to shoot me a message, always happy to talk coffee!
