The Best Thai Iced Coffee Recipe

Ready in: 5 mins

Serves: 4


  • Very strong black regular grind coffee, sufficient to brew 4 cups.
  • 4 tablespoons sugar.
  • 4 tablespoons heavy cream.
  • 2 teaspoons ground cardamom.
  • 1 teaspoon almond flavouring.
  • crushed ice


Add the cardamom to the ground coffee, and brew the coffee; when the coffee is brewed, add the sugar and almond flavouring, mix well and then let the coffee cool to lukewarm.

Fill four 12 ounce highball glasses half-way to the rim with crushed ice and then fill two-thirds full with coffee; into each glass, stir about 1 tablespoon of heavy cream.

To achieve a layered effect, hold a spoon on top of the coffee and pour the cream slowly into the spoon so that the cream floats on top of the glass over the coffee.
