How to make an iced Americano

  2. Add some honey or sugar to your jug with a spout and watch the coffee pour. We want this hot so the sugar or honey melts!
  3. Pop this in the fridge for a few minutes to cool down
  4. In your serving glass, add some ice.
  5. Pour your coffee over the ice. And there you have an iced Americano!

Tips on how to make an iced Americano

Use coffee ice cubes

If you hate when your iced Americano gets watery because of the ice cubes, coffee ice cubes are your friend! They make sure that your coffee keeps the deliciously strong flavour.


Coffee ice cubes are simple – simply pop in an Americano pod into your NESCAFÉ® Dolce Gusto® coffee pod machine, and pour into ice cube trays. Leave in the freezer to set and then pop them into your coffee.

Add your favourite coffee syrup instead of sugar

Jazzing up your iced Americano is easy with coffee syrups. Simply pour the desired amount of syrup into your cup (we like caramel for sweetness and peppermint for a minty treat) and leave the pod machine to pour the Americano on top. Give it a mix and taste!

How can I keep my iced Americano cold?

Ice cubes, of course, keep your iced Americano cold. Another way to do this is to invest in an insulated cup. The ice won’t melt as quickly so your iced Americano stays deliciously chilled.

Can I add milk to my iced Americano?

Yes! If you’re looking for an iced Americano recipe that suits your tastebuds, a splash of milk in your coffee can make the taste a bit milder.

Are iced Americanos vegan?

Yes! Iced Americano is vegan as it’s black coffee. If you fancy a bit of milk, try a vegan milk alternative, like oat or almond.
