Cold coffee cream: a drink loved by all of us in the hottest periods of the year.

Caffeinated, sweet and bitter, tasty, intense, velvety, creamy and refreshing.

An ally of bartenders and customers both in the morning and in the afternoon…

but can I also replicate it at home?
Of course yes! Today I show you three different recipes to find the one that’s right for you!

Coffee cream in a jar in 5 minutes

Necessary for 2 people:

  • Jar, which can be replaced by a shaker, bottle or anything in general with a tightly fitting cap;
  • 125 ml of fresh cooking cream for desserts;
  • 2 tablespoons of powdered sugar;
  • 2 cups of coffee, preferably espresso.


Put all the very cold ingredients inside the jar and shake for five minutes, or in any case until the cream is frothy.

At this point you just have to serve it!

Coffee cream with an electric mixer

Necessary for 4 people:

  • Electric hand mixer;
  • Bowl;
  • 300 ml of fresh cooking cream for desserts;
  • 40 g of powdered sugar;
  • 70 g of coffee, better if made with a mocha.


First prepare the coffee with the mocha pot and mix it with the sugar, to make it all dissolve. Leave it to cool in the fridge for at least 2 hours.

Then pour the cream into a very cold bowl and start whipping it with an electric mixer. Also add the cold coffee and finish whipping the cream.

Place everything in the fridge, covered with a film, for at least an hour before serving.

Coffee cream in freezer


Follow exactly the same doses and steps as the recipe just described above.

Don’t put it in the fridge, but in the freezer for at least two hours.

Take it out 20 minutes before serving and work it with a spatula.

The passage in the freezer makes it less airy and more similar to the consistency of an ice cream.

Water-based coffee cream and soluble coffee

Necessary for 4 people:

  • Electric hand mixer;
  • Bowl;
  • 250 ml of cold water;
  • 200 g of fine granulated sugar;
  • 40 g of soluble coffee.


Put the instant coffee with the sugar in a bowl. Add the cold water.

Mix all the ingredients with an electric whisk for 5-10 minutes,until the cream will not be thick.

Servila e rimani senza parole!

NB. NB. The colder the water, the more frothy the cream will be!

Then place it in the fridge for at least two hours and then in the freezer for 15 minutes before preparing the recipe.

Making espresso

As it is easy to imagine, if I want an excellent final result I have to select quality and fresh ingredients and obviously I have to prepare a good coffee!

First of all I will choose a Medium roast coffe to give pleasant aromas and aromatic notes to the final drink, without ever being too intrusive with the annoying bitterness of Dark Roasted coffees.

Now let’s get down to business… how do you make perfect espresso coffee?

Find out in the video below!

To prepare a good coffee, however, after choosing the blend and/or single origin, you must also choose the correct equipment, undoubtedly including the coffee grinder. If you want a perfect espresso, the coffee must be ground fresh, only at the time of extraction, and constantly checking that it is correct.

Then watch the video “All about grinding”!

Then find out how to use an electric grinder:

Or a manual grinder:

Finally here is the latest video on cream of espresso and its formation.

The crema is in fact the first indicator of the extraction quality of an espresso; you can therefore use it to understand if you have worked correctly!

Making coffee with moka pot

Even if we underestimate it and think that using the moka is obvious, very often it is not. Without even realizing it, we make mistakes that inevitably ruin the coffee in the cup.

So here is the video on how to make a moka pot like a real expert!

And if you want to know the different stages of extraction of the moka, why you don’t have to mound it, the different flavors that a moka can have, temperature control, advice on which coffee maker to choose and much more, click below and visit the our Youtube page:
