Notes

The most important thing in this recipe is a delicious, properly brewed coffee. Here are some tips to help you make a coffee-house worthy brew:
  • Make sure you buy fresh, whole bean coffee
  • Grind immediately before brewing
  • Store your coffee beans in air-tight jars
  • Use filtered water
This recipe calls for a delicious caramel sauce, and it is critical that a sauce is used - not a syrup. Here's how to tell the difference:
  • Syrups are usually very sugary
  • Sauces tend to have a more savory taste to them - though caramel is used for desserts it isn't as sweet as many other treats
  • Sauces have a thicker consistency
  • Bonus: cafe-style caramel iced coffees often have vanilla syrup added, for a little richer flavor
Add as much sugar as you need, it will vary as everybody's taste buds are different.
Milk can be whatever your personal preference is - full fat, 1%, etc.
