Brew Guide: Shaken Espresso Tonic

Brew Guide: Shaken Espresso Tonic

This is a super refreshing, zingy summer drink! Especially with a squeeze of lime to top it off.



Ice cubes

130ml Indian tonic water

36g of espresso - we used our Ethiopia Guji Natural for this recipe

Boston shaker (you could use a milkshake maker)

Lime wedge (optional)




Brew yourself a shot of espresso – a home espresso machine would work best, but you could also use a Moka Pot to hack this recipe. 

Fill a 14oz glass roughly three quarters full with ice and then pour 130ml of Indian tonic water over the ice.

Put the shot of espresso into a Boston shaker with a few ice cubes and shake vigorously until the espresso starts to foam and doubles in quantity. You can also use a protein shaker for this step.

Get your glass with the ice and tonic and pour the espresso over the top. Give it a stir to mix the coffee and tonic together. 

Squeeze a lime wedge to finish off this super refreshing iced black coffee. This might all sound a bit weird but trust us, it tastes unreasonably delicious!
