3 Simple Tips to make your Iced Latte Better!

3 Simple Tips to make your Iced Latte Better!

Posted by Nate Lee on

Here are three simple tips that can help you make a better iced latte using our signature blends:

1. Optimize Extraction Ratio:
Make sure to aim for a ratio of 1:1 to 1.5 Espresso ratio (if you're using a damn good blend, using 18 grams of coffee and extracting 18-20 grams of espresso in 27-30 seconds). Adjust the ratio if you're using our other blends; a 1:1.5 to 2 ratio would work better for them. This shorter ratio (Damn Good Blend) makes sure the damn good impact with milk!

2. Perfect Coffee-to-Milk Ratio:
Maintain a proper coffee-to-milk ratio to achieve the right balance of flavours. For an iced latte, a recommended ratio is 1:8 to 1:10. Start with 18 grams of espresso (double shot) and mix it with 144-180 grams of milk. We believe this will bring out full body and chocolaty, nutty flavours in your cups (Other Blends would work better with a 1:10-12 ratio)

3. Experiment with Alternative or Lactose-Free Milk:
Enhance the flavour profile of your iced latte by trying out alternative or lactose-free milk. These options can add a unique sweetness and creaminess to your drink. Experiment with different alternatives, such as oat milk, soy milk, or almond milk, to find the one that complements the damn good blend the best. This step is particularly useful for those who prefer a sweeter, dairy-free option.

By paying attention to these three key aspects – extraction ratio, coffee-to-milk ratio, and milk choice – you can elevate your iced latte experience with a damn good blend. Enjoy experimenting and finding the perfect balance that suits your taste preferences!
