When you’re in need of a drink that refreshes and satisfies — and obviously caffeinates — Thai iced coffee is the way to go.
As its name implies, this chilled beverage is typically enjoyed in Thailand, though now, the mixture of robusta joe, oliang powder, and sweetened condensed milk has made its way to other parts of the world, including the United States. Naturally, Americanized variations of the recipe began to emerge. Fortunately for you, we’ve compiled a few of them for your viewing (and brewing!) pleasure.
