Frappe - Iced Coffee

Frappe is a frothy super chilled cold coffee with chocolate flavor. This is a cool refresher during any day especially for coffee lovers. The fresh Coffee powder is used to get the coffee decoction (liquid extract of coffee beans) using traditional filter that resembles two cylindrical containers, one of which has a perforated bottom that nests into the top of the "tumbler" container, leaving ample room underneath to receive the brewed coffee. 

The coffee decoction or coffee concentrate is mixed with sweetened milk and cocoa. It is then blend together with ice cubes for that crunchy-frosty ice effect foe that perfect Frappe. Further it is topped with whipped fresh cream that not only froth well, but it adds an entirely new layer of richness and vitality to milk based drinks. Some people also use vanilla ice cream instead of fresh cream to get that unique different flavor to Frappe.

Coffee is the drink loved by people across the world and it is served in wide varieties and flavors: this is given the birth to many multinational coffee retail chains - Starbucks, Cafe Costa Coffee, Cafe Nero, Barista, Au Bon Pain and Esquires. Coffee beans are produced in different places, where quality and processing differs. One such coffee beans known by name Kopi Luwak is the most expensive coffee in the world. Kopi Luwak is produced mainly on the islands of Sumatra, Java, Bali and Sulawesi in the Indonesian Archipelego.

1. Milk 2 cups
2. Unsweetened Cocoa powder - 2 tbsp.
3. Coffee powder - 4 tsp.
4. Hot boiling water - 1/2 cup
5. Sugar or any sweetener of your choice - 2 tsp.
6. Whipped cream - 2 tbsp.
7. Cinnamon or nutmeg powder - a pinch
8. Ice cubes - 1/2 cup



1. For the coffee decoction, I used the traditional South Indian coffee filter where I added coffee powder and later poured the boiling water to the filter and the coffee decoction was collected underneath slowly drop by drop, which took me 15 to 20 minutes. Alternatively, if there is no coffee filter, in a mug, add coffee powder and hot water and cover it for about 5 to 7 minutes and then filter it out. Instant coffee also may work in place but the taste differs.

2. Boil milk, cool it and then chill the milk in the refrigerator.

3. In a blender, add milk, coffee decoction, cocoa powder along with ice cubes and whip them until frothy.

4. Finally whip the cream and top it while serving sprinkling a pinch of nutmeg or cinnamon and coffee powder for that extra flavor and texture.
