Iced Latte vs Iced Coffee Explained

Now, let's clear up a little confusion. An iced latte and an iced coffee might look similar, but they have two main differences:

First is the coffee type; iced coffee is made with regular brewed coffee, while an iced latte uses espresso or very strong coffee.

The second difference is milk ratios; iced lattes have a higher milk-to-coffee ratio, making them creamier, while iced coffee has less milk and a bolder coffee taste.

What’s the best milk for an iced latte?

The best milk for an iced latte depends on your preference. Whole milk gives a rich, creamy texture, while almond or oat milk offers a nutty, dairy-free option.

Do lattes have more caffeine?

Lattes typically have less caffeine than iced coffee because they contain more milk. However, you can always ask for an extra shot of espresso to up the caffeine game.

Is an iced latte the same as coffee?

Nope! As we mentioned earlier, the key difference is in the coffee type and milk ratios.

Do you need to froth milk for an iced latte?

While frothing milk can add a luxurious touch to your latte, it's not a must. You can simply pour cold milk over your iced latte.

What’s cold foam?

Cold foam is frothed milk that's dense and velvety. It's a delightful topping for iced lattes, adding a luxurious texture.

With this ultimate guide to making the perfect iced latte at home at your disposal and Greens Steel Beast Tumbler in hand, you're ready to embark on a delicious coffee adventure right from your kitchen.
