Â A customer in our Dingle shop told me about a coffee drink that she had come across in Italy. I had never heard of it andÂ so I tried it out with good results. It’s very simple – you take a glass of very cold milk and add a shot of espresso. With all the hot weather we’ve been having here it makes a refreshing way to get a coffee hit. The only downside is it is not a sipping drink. You tend to reach the bottom of the glass in a hurry!

Coffee Society in Dublin (Ranelagh, Harcourt Road, Liffey Street) do this, but call it an Iced Latte. It’s the same, but with ice cubes.
I was a bit surprised when I first ordered it as expected it to be frappÃ©d, but it is quite nice. Bit too milky for my liking, and they don’t do soya milk unfortunately.
I was in Italy a few weeks back and had the most amazing cinnamon ice cream there -Explosive taste!
Very strong flavour, was it? We have a cinnamon in the cabinet, but it’s not super strong. We find we often have to tone down flavours for our customers…
