I was making some steamed iced Americanos (Aerocano) last summer and really enjoyed that. I also enjoy the citros (nitro cold brew with a bit of lemonade) and find them very refreshing! So I decided to combine both and made this.

Simple syrup made with honey, fresh squeezed lemon juice, a double espresso, steamed with crushed ice, and served over a giant ice cube. Dialing in the recipe but it’s a delicious refreshing summer drink.

      Exactly! During the cooler months a flatwhite in the midafternoon is nice perk-up, but entirely unappealing in the summer. The other thing that’s great in a hot summer afternoon is an espresso affogato!

      It adds the micro foam, just like a latte, I enjoy the thicker texture (mouthfeel if you’re feeling fancy).
