Brazilian Iced Mocha Recipe

brazilian-iced-mocha-recipeThis Brazilian iced mocha recipe is a fine variation of the Italian formula. Try this method and enjoy another Brazilian coffee delight.

I was presented to this recipe many years ago at the home of some Italian relatives. Signora Nerina “invented” the trick of icing the coffee and keeping it in the fridge. She had tasted this recipe while on a trip to Naples and, being such a great cook, after experimenting a bit, landed on this formula without the cloves and cinnamon came a bit later

She had tasted this recipe while on a trip to Naples and, being such a great cook, after experimenting a bit, landed on this formula without the cloves and cinnamon. Those came a bit later after she read a book about the essence of Brazilian cuisine.

 

I use whatever type of commercial or gourmet Brazilian coffee for this, but quality may make a difference.

    Hey, my husband just loves frappe and iced coffee during the summer months, but I had never searched for a recipe how to make them as I thought that I would need some appliance that we don’t have.
    But then I saw your recipe and it is very easy to make. I would surprise my loved ones this Sunday with this lovely iced coffee.
    Can I use only the cinnamon and skip the cloves, we don’t like their taste.
    You have interesting recipes on your site, very tempting to try.
    All the best!

      Hello, Ellie,

      Thank you for stopping by and sharing your impressions.

      Of course you can! Go for whatever suits your taste better. /// Please allow me to just insist that you try a pinch of cloves so small that you don’t even feel it’s there. And, if you still find there’s something wrong with it, just strip it away. It will be a bit less Brazilian though. 😛

      Cheers!

    MMmmmm… that sounds fantastic! I LOVE iced mochas – I think I’ll have to give the iced coffee cubes a try. I’ve heard of adding a pinch of cinnamon to the grinds, but not cloves. Is that a Brazilian thing? I’m willing to give it a go! 🙂 Thanks for the recipe tip!

      Hello, Marlaine,

      Right on the spot! Cinnamon and cloves are a Brazilian thing. Both ingredients are present in a great variety of typical Brazilian recipes. Thanks for sharing your impressions. Cheers!
