Chill Out: Refreshing Cold Coffee Recipes with Bruvi

As the days grow longer and the weather warms up, we start looking for refreshing drinks to quench our thirst. No surprise that at Bruvi, we’re big fans of cold coffee drinks.  But we’re in good company as cold coffee beverages continue to grow in popularity. In fact, coffee lovers are turning to cold coffee at all times of day for a tasty way to indulge, refresh and rejuvenate. While you could spend $5, $6 or more to enjoy these favorites at your local coffee shop, with Bruvi you’ll instead spend a small fraction of that.

Bruvi makes it easy to enjoy a classic iced coffee, smooth cold brew or robust iced Americano. Bruvi also offers the perfect starting point for cold coffee creations like iced lattes, smoothies and more. Let's dive into some ideas and recipes that are perfect for warm weather, all easily crafted with your Bruvi coffee brewer.

Classic Iced Coffee

Iced coffee is a timeless favorite, known for its simplicity and versatility. With Bruvi, it’s as easy as can be.

Simply select the Bruvi coffee B-Pod of your choice and insert into the brewer. Select the Iced icon and choose your cup size. Pour into a tall glass and add ice cubes to chill further. Enjoy black or add milk or sweetener.

Cold Brew Coffee

No more waiting hours to make cold brew at home. With Bruvi, you can enjoy fresh cold brew in minutes. Joyride Original Cold Brew is specifically designed for a smooth, rich cold brew experience. It’s medium bodied with a crispness at first sip. But any Bruvi coffee B-Pod can be used for a delicious cold brew. Experiment with your favorites.

To brew, simply insert a coffee B-Pod, then select the Cold Brew icon. You can adjust cup size if you’d like. Pour into a tall glass, add ice and you’re good to go.  Enjoy black or add your favorite milk or sweetener if you prefer.

Iced Americano

Another coffee house favorite, with Bruvi, all you need is any espresso pod to enjoy a refreshing iced Americano. We like Wonderland Euphoria espresso, as it’s a medium roast blend with notes of citrus and chocolate. It’s delicious black but also tastes great with a bit of milk.

Simply insert your espresso B-Pod into the brewer, select both the Americano and Iced icons, and you’re good to brew. Add a few ice cubes to complete the chill.

Easy Iced Latte

Brew a 2 oz espresso with your favorite Bruvi espresso B-Pod. Mulholland Causu espresso is a great choice. Pour into a tall glass, add cold milk of your choice and ice cubes. Add sweetener or a dash of your favorite coffee syrup, if desired.  You can even add some caramel or chocolate sauce for an extra treat.

If you have a few extra minutes – and a taste for something fun – try these delicious options.

Iced Shaken Sugar Latte

This recipe comes from Bruvi customer Olivia, who says she makes it every morning!  You’ll need a tall cup with a lid for this one (like a travel mug). Brew two shots of espresso with your favorite Bruvi espresso B-Pod. Pour over a tablespoon of coconut sugar, add cinnamon and ice cubes. Shake until foamy then pour into a tall glass. Add your favorite cold milk and enjoy!

Banana Café Frio


Another delicious recipe from a Bruvi content creator, this has become a staff favorite. Brew an 8oz cup of iced coffee with your favorite Bruvi coffee B-Pod. Then blend with 2 frozen bananas.

Coffee Smoothie

Charge up your morning smoothie with a coffee kick. Brew a 6 oz cup of Bruvi iced coffee (we like using the Stronger button for this) or an espresso shot with your favorite B-Pod. Then blend it with your favorite smoothie ingredients. We’ve listed our favorites but suggest you experiment with these and the amount of coffee to your taste.

  • Plain or vanilla yogurt
  • Oat or almond milk
  • Banana
  • Peanut butter or almond butter
  • Protein powder
  • Dates, honey or maple syrup for sweetness
  • Cinnamon, cocoa or vanilla powder

Blended Iced Coffee

For those afternoons when you crave something sweet and icy, a blended iced coffee is the perfect treat. If you can find a great chocolate or vanilla powder, we find that makes a creamier drink. If you like it icy, try a flavored syrup.

Brew an iced double shot of your favorite Bruvi espresso B-Pod. (Just select the Iced icon when you brew.) Extra dark roasted Spellbinder Espresso Forte is a nice option, or to dial down the kick, try Wonderland Oasis decaf espresso.

In a blender, combine the espresso, cold dairy or plant milk, ice cubes and your choice of flavored powder or syrup (chocolate, vanilla and caramel are go-to’s). Blend until smooth and frosty. Top with whipped cream and a ribbon of caramel or chocolate syrup for an extra treat.

Whether you go simple and quick or want to experiment with more indulgent options, we hope you’ll take advantage of the cold brewing options of Bruvi. You just may find some new favorites! Happy brewing.
