Summer Series: Vanilla Iced Coffee

ice-coffee-2 Here’s another of our favorite iced coffee recipes from Katie Shepherd using our new Organic Instant Coffee. Try the versatile coffee that an Amazon reviewer said was “easily the best instant coffee we’ve ever tried. I appreciate that it is fair trade and organic.”

This is a delicious classic vanilla iced coffee which can be also made non-dairy. You can make these all summer long and don’t need to spend 4 bucks at a café every time you have a craving!

Cafe Altura Freeze Dried Instant Coffee is an exclusively sourced blend of organically grown 100% Arabica Coffees selected from three continents. Then we freeze dry it by an exclusive Certified Organic process to maintain the taste and aroma of real coffee. All coffee is grown sustainably by small farm indigenous growers who form the basis for Fair Trade exchange.
