Love-hate relationship is what I share with summer! But I’m not going to list its negative aspects here since we all experience them just the same, instead, I will share the romantic part of our relationship. Summer is when I spend more time experimenting and developing recipes in my humble kitchen, and have more time to sharpen my skills (photography, editing, reading …etc). However, the #1 advantage I find in this season is the excuse to indulge in cold satisfying goodies.
I love coffee and enjoy it everyday of every season. It doesn’t matter if it’s cold or hot, I’m content as long as I can taste and smell it.
Inspired by summer and coffee, I’m starting a mini series of coffee experiences. Although I’m using regular coffee in today’s recipe, you can tweak it and give it a makeover by choosing from these 90 different flavors of coffee.
New York Gourmet Coffee offers high quality flavored coffees available in regular and decaf. It is a small artisan coffee company, hand producing all of their products using 100% Arabica beans. Their proprietary roast results a deep rich brown color, enhancing the bold flavor while reducing bitterness. Their flavored coffees are an exclusive blend that creates a remarkably smooth, rich taste. Their flavors are from the finest ingredients, which include both natural and artificial flavors with absolutely no alcohol, sweeteners, or allergens.
No matter what type/flavor of coffee you choose, summer will slow you down. You’ll need to keep things simple, just like this Iced Coffee. It will pick you up, refreshes you, and it’s perfect if you’re in a rush.
