One of the drinks on my coffees t-shirt is the chilled cappucino, or cappucino freddo. When I spotted a cafe freddo on the menu at oven, I had to try it to see what such a drink is like: I haven’t seen one on a menu anywhere else!
It’s a shot of coffee with cold milk and ice added, so it doesn’t have the milky taste of a latte, rather it has a stronger coffee taste, but is a comfortable cold-drink temperature. This could be a good drink to be serving up over summer, especially if you have your own coffee machine at home (as some readers of this site do).
This was a summer favourite at Gimme!, although known as an iced cappucino (or latte – the difference in the US is only the size). Also VERY good with a shot of swiss chocolate syrup!
