Seven iced coffee varieties from other countries

Vietnamese iced coffee

The key ingredient for Vietnamese iced coffee? Condensed milk of course! And anyone who knows that stuff a bit already knows that such iced coffee from Vietnam is quite sweet and also a bit thicker in texture. And that’s really, really, really tasty. Make it yourself? Check our recipe for Vietnamese (ice) coffee .


Contrary to what you might think, Frappé originated in Greece. For this iced coffee variant, instant coffee is shaken vigorously (get it? Frappé ) with sugar so that the coffee becomes airy.

This in turn is poured into a glass with ice cubes and topped with a splash of milk. An ice-cold and extremely light drink, which is also sweetened. Yummy!

Italian affogato

We may soon categorize affogato under dessert, in Italy you just order it at the bar. What you get is a scoop of vanilla ice cream that is aimed in a glass of espresso. And whether you drink it for breakfast (we won’t stop you) or as a dessert: that combination is worth gold anyway.

…or Italian granita al caffe

And if we stay in Italy, then granita al caffe is in a sense a variant of iced coffee. For this, sugar, water and espresso are boiled in a saucepan.

This mixture is transferred to an oven dish or container and then put in the freezer. If you stir this mixture well once in a while, a sorbet-like coffee mixture is created: granita al caffe. Again, you should not be surprised if you see Italians eating this for breakfast. Give them a go…

Es Alpukat

Could not be missing from this list: the Indonesian invention es alpukat. Think of it as an affogato with avocado instead of ice cream. Or as an avocado milkshake with coffee. Es means ice cream, alpukat means avocado. The taste tends to that of a bizarrely creamy, thick milkshake, with coffee.

Want to test it yourself? Culy previously disclosed the recipe for es alpukat .

Mazagran may originate from Algeria, but today it is more drunk in Portugal. In fact, it’s a mix between lemonade and espresso, served on ice cubes. Honey is often used as a sweetener in addition to sugar. This results in a refreshing drink, which nevertheless has an interesting bitterness from the coffee.

Aisu Kōhī (Japan)

And if you want an iced coffee in Japanese style, then you come to Aisu Kōhī. The freshly brewed coffee is poured directly into an elongated glass filled with ice cubes. If you order this in a Japanese coffee bar, you often get a small pitcher of liquid sugar with it. Simple but effective.
