Perfect for those warm summer days, the Thai Iced Coffee is an incredibly quick and easy way to make iced coffee (with a delicious twist!).
4 espresso shots (the stronger the better! We recommend Code Black's La Leyenda blend for this one)
4 tablespoons of sugar
4 tablespoons of heavy cream
2 teaspoons of ground cardamom
1 teaspoon of almond flavouring
Add the cardamom to the ground coffee, and brew the coffee; when the coffee is brewed, add the sugar and almond flavoring, mix well and then let the coffee cool to lukewarm.
Fill four 12 ounce highball glasses half-way to the rim with crushed ice and then fill two-thirds full with coffee; into each glass, stir about 1 tablespoon of heavy cream.
To achieve a layered effect, hold a spoon on top of the coffee and pour the cream slowly into the spoon so that the cream floats on top of the glass over the coffee.
