A summer treat
We love to make shaken coffee around here, especially in the summer. An Iced Shaken Coffee is just a lovely way to start the day.
What type of coffee should I use?
Regardless of the brand of coffee you use, and even if you don’t add cream or sugar, you’ll get that pretty foam on the top if you shake it well.
Shaking the coffee is like aerating wine; basically the oxygen molecules attach to the coffee, and they soften the coffee, making it more well-rounded and balanced.
In more simple terms, it makes the coffee yummier (if that’s even possible!).
I like to use regular brewed drip coffee from a medium grind for my Iced Shaken Coffee.
Can I use the stovetop espresso for the shaken coffee?
If you want to use the espresso from the stovetop espresso maker, allow the brewed espresso to cool, either to room temperature, or place it in the fridge before shaking it with the ice.
Make an Americano with half water and half brewed espresso before shaking it, or make a latte with half milk and half brewed espresso before shaking it.
Can I add sugar to this?
This shaking method is a great way to add sugar to cold coffee. It helps the sugar dissolve, whereas if you just stir sugar into cold coffee it tends to sink to the bottom.
So, if you want to add sugar, place it in the shaker before you start shaking it!
Cool Coffee Giveaway
I’m so excited about these great products from Zulay that I wanted to share them with you!
Stovetop Espresso Maker
These little stovetop espresso makers are the best. Small, easy to move around, easy to store, and super easy to make great tasting espresso!
It has a durable cast aluminum body with a pressure valve for higher caffeine extraction and flavor. Depending on the bean variety and grind selection you choose, this espresso maker can create foam emulsion or crema. It has a heat-resistant handle and lid knob for safe pouring. It can be used on gas or ceramic stove tops.
How to use the Stovetop Espresso Maker
Unscrew the top half on the espresso maker, and remove the coffee filter funnel.
Fill the base with cold filtered water, just below the valve (do not fill the water past the steam valve). Put the funnel into the water filled base, and fill it with coffee. Be sure not to compress the grounds down into the base. This may prevent the water from gurgling up through to the top to make your coffee. Instead of compacting it, smooth the coffee grounds softly with the flat side of a knife.
Tighten the upper half to the base and ensure it’s fully screwed on.
Place the espresso maker over low to medium heat, and be sure not to burn the pot.
Take the pot off the burner immediately when you hear it start to boil or percolate. Let it sit off the heat until percolation stops.
Enjoy your homemade espresso!
I love my coffee canister! It lives on the kitchen counter, like a trophy.
It keeps the coffee grounds nice and fresh, and at the ready!
I love that this coffee canister from Zulay is make of stainless steel, comes with two replacement filters (for releasing CO2), and stores 1.1 pounds of whole bean coffee.
It has a unique locking system that seals out oxygen, light, heat and moisture. The airtight lid comes with a unique one-way co2 valve that allows carbon dioxide to be released and preserve your coffee’s smooth and rich taste. This is how you ensure you will always have the freshest coffee beans.
It has a fun and convenient coffee expiration date tracking system on the top of the canister too. I mean, not that my coffee ever sits around for too long. LOL
And, it comes with a 1/8 cup measuring cup.
Cocktail Shaker Set
This Cocktail Shaker Set has it all: a 24 ounce shaker, a built-in strainer, a 1.5 ounce jigger, and a 9 inch cocktail stirring spoon.
It’s easy to clean, comfortable to use, beautiful, and prefect for making Iced Shaken Coffees!

Iced Shaken Coffee Recipe
Iced shaken Coffee
- 10-12 ounces brewed coffee cooled
- Fill a martini shaker about half full with cubes of ice.
Pour 10-12 ounces (about the amount that your coffee cup holds) of brewed coffee into the shaker over the ice.
- Cover the shaker with both lids. Shake the dickens out of it. Shake until you feel the cold through the metal of the shaker and until it starts to make your hand cold.
- Once you can’t shake any more, remove the top lid and quickly pour into a tall glass. Be sure to let the foam come out and top your coffee. Garnish with a shake of cinnamon or a cinnamon stick if desired. Enjoy!
