4. Iced Coffee with John Lewis café blend 

Iced coffee

Whip up an iced Fairtrade coffee with John Lewis’ smooth well-balanced, ground fresh coffee, made with 100% Arabica beans, roasted in the Yorkshire countryside.  

If you’ve never tried icing your coffee before, here are a few recipes to try from the Spruce Eats. Or simply brew your coffee using half the volume of water, add a few ice cubes, your choice of milk (or no milk and extra ice), give it a stir and voila! Once the ice melts it should taste cold and delicious. To make your coffee extra cold (if you have the patience), let your brewed coffee cool down first before adding ice and milk.
