MY RECIPES

It’s a matter of ice

Ice is key to creating my favourite recipes. I enjoy using Scotsman ice. The quality and hardness is amazing. It’s crystal clear, pure and long-lasting.

Each coffee has a different flavor, depending on the variety, the roasting process and the country of origin

I’m in love with coffee. I like to enhance the taste of coffee and create something new, working with the natural flavours of the coffee. It’s important to focus on the natural coffee nuance instead of adding artificial tastes.

I love sharing

While I’m preparing a cold brew coffee I like to talk with customers about the flavors and style of coffee they like. I think that’s an essential part of being a good barista: someone who listens, but who is knowledgeable about their craft and can answer questions.

Creatively Chilled

I only use Scotsman ice, because it’s perfect for every occasion. They make really, really good ice. The quality and hardness is amazing for us baristas.

Absolute clarity with no white color, a low mineral count for purity and slow melting qualities ensure perfect results every time.

Gourmet Ice

There is no better ice for cold brew, espresso brew variations and cold drip. Its slow melting properties improves flavour distribution and preserves the beverage’s body and aroma.

Nugget Ice

For superior drink displacement in blended drinks, mixed beverages and smoothies. Nugget Ice enhances the colours of different ingredients.

Dice Ice

Best for blending and the preferred option for many coffee chains. Dice minimizes blending time and delivers exceptional drink texture.

I love the enthusiasm of the people at Scotsman.

They are so passionate and ice is at the heart of everything they do. I know I can always count on them. Passion and enthusiasm are two key ingredients. They make the difference in my life as in my job.
