What Is Iced Coffee?
Before we help you out in making a Nespresso iced coffee, it’s important for you to know what Iced Coffee is, especially if you are making it for the first time.
To begin with, Iced coffee is a coffee beverage that is served cold. It can be prepared by brewing coffee in the normal way and then serving it over ice or by adding cold milk into it or by simply putting a hot cup of coffee into the freezer to make it cold.
In short, it’s the colder version of your usual cup of joe.

How To Make The Nespresso Iced Coffee
The first thing that you would have to do is grind the coffee beans in a burr grinder. After that, you need to transfer the grounds to the carafe of a French press.
Note: If you do not have one, you can simply use a normal all-in-one coffee and add it to boiling water.
The second thing that you would have to do is pour the hot water over the grounds.
Tip: The water should be around 90 degrees, which should be just below the boiling point.
The third thing that you need to do is give the grounds a stir and use a spoon to break the crust that is at the top. This would even up the exposure of the grounds to hot water.
Also, make sure that you are placing the lid over the carafe with the plunger being fully retracted. Once that has been done, you want it to steep for 3 to 5 minutes.
The fourth thing that you would have to do is slowly press the plunger down and make sure that the filter traps all the grounds that there are as it moves down the walls of the carafe that you are using. Once you have reached the bottom part, make sure that the pour spout is turned to open and you pour the brewed coffee into a glass of your choice.
Add your choice of sweetener in the glass and stir it so your coffee can be sweet.
Allow the coffee to cool before you place it in your refrigerator. Once it reaches room temperature, place it in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour. Once it’s cold enough, pour it over ice and add the creamer of your choice.
