Use ground coffee to brew and just before brewing, add 2 teaspoons of cardamom, usually ground, along with one teaspoon of almond syrup and 4 tablespoons of sugar. Brew the mixture to its perfectness and the allow it to cool. Now add sufficient amount of crushed ice (about half the glass) and a scoop of cream. Your Thai Iced Coffee is ready to be served to the customers’ pleasure!
Cold Brew Coffee
Cold-brew, as the name suggests, is brewed literally cold; no heating. It is made to brew in such a way that its sweetness is gotten out rather than the acidic flavor. It is time-consuming and needs some prior preparation. Some practice and you will be off to preparing a cool enriching blend of Cold Brewed Coffee.
