Coffee drinks recipes for every season and every taste.

Coffee is remarkable in that it can be brewed, mixed and enjoyed in so many different ways, and with such a broad range of different ingredients and flavors.

Coffee drinks can be sweet or spicy, invigorating or relaxing, light or heavy...even alcoholic.

Some are warming for a cold winter’s evening, others cool us down on a hot summer’s day.

Perhaps we take it for granted that there are so many different coffee drinks we can make, with such a broad variety of tastes.

But if you think about it, coffee is unique in the range of choices if offers us. How many different variations, for instance, are there to a cup of tea?

With coffee, the choices are almost endless.

Some of these drinks, like those based on espresso, require that you have the right equipment...like an espresso machine.

Or, if you want to spruce up your regular coffee drinks, either hot or cold, you might want to get a milk frother.

BTW – one way to make frothed milk, without having to buy anything new, is available to anyone who already owns a French press. Simply heat the milk, pour it into the French press and then push and pull the filter plunger up and down through the hot milk. Instant froth!

But most recipes are based on a simple cup of coffee or an espresso, to which other ingredients are added.

The simplest of all coffee drinks are the iced coffee drinks you can enjoy during the hot summer months. Many of these involve simply allowing your coffee to cool, adding a lot of ice, and maybe some flavorings or cream topping.

We have categorized the various coffee drinks in separate areas, although there may be some overlap between each.
