Pro tip – if you want to keep it all really sweet, try freezing some cream or condensed milk into ice cubes so the drink isn’t watered down.


  • Coarse ground dark roast coffee
  • Condensed milk – for vegans, try using coconut cream.
  • Ice


  1. Add around two tablespoons of condensed milk in the bottom of a glass, along with your ice.
  2. Use a coffee dripper and add your ground coffee. Pour the water over and allow the coffee to drip down into the ice and milk as it brews.
  3. Give it a stir to ensure the milk is all mixed in and enjoy.
