I have been a consumer of Iced Coffee for a number of years and recently the fast food industry has been jumping on the band wagon to capture a share of the market.

I have tried Iced Coffee from the following sources:

  • Canned mixtures from Vietnam, purchased from Sam’s Oriental Market in Brooks when I lived there
  • Starbucks
  • Cafe Mundo
  • Pho Dao Noodle House
  • Tim Hortons
  • McDonald’s
  • Burger King

The canned mixture was my first introduction and it was an instant “I like this!”. The second try was to discuss what I would like and with the helpful staff at Starbucks, I was hooked for life.

Cafe Mundo also produces a nice product that is prepared fresh, similar to the Pho Dao Vietnamese version that is brought to the table to finish brewing.

The fast food joint’s attempts are palatable but are premixed and contain unknown quantities of cream/sugar/syrup.

My favourite Iced Coffee, containing only ingredients that I request, is from Starbucks:

Venti Iced Americano, Light Ice, with Room

Translation: largest size, mega amounts of freshly-brewed espresso mixed with cold water, some ice cubes, and room for me to add the amount of cream I desire.
