Gather Your Ingredients and Equipment

Before you start making your frappe, make sure you have all the necessary ingredients and equipment. You will need strong brewed coffee or espresso, milk, sugar or sweetener, ice cubes, and any additional flavourings or toppings you desire. As for equipment, you will need a blender or a shaker bottle to mix the ingredients together. Having everything ready and within reach will make the process much smoother and more efficient.


  • Simply Coffee Frappe 12oz & 16oz (2 scoops, 50g), 20oz (3 scoops, 75g)
  • Milk 12oz (120ml), 16oz (140ml), 20oz (160ml)
  • Ice
  • Whipped Cream

Brew Your Coffee

The first step in making the perfect frappe is to brew your coffee. You can use either strong brewed coffee or espresso, depending on your preference. Make sure the coffee is fresh and hot before proceeding to the next step. If you don't have a coffee maker, you can also use instant coffee or instant espresso powder. Simply dissolve the desired amount in hot water according to the instructions on the packaging. Once your coffee is ready, let it cool down to room temperature before moving on to the next step.

Prepare Your Ice

The next step in making the perfect frappe is to prepare your ice. You will need a good amount of ice to create a refreshing and chilled frappe. You can either use ice cubes or crushed ice, depending on your preference. If you don't have ice readily available, you can also freeze some coffee in ice cube trays to add an extra coffee kick to your frappe. Make sure to have enough ice to fill your blender or shaker halfway. Once your ice is ready, you're one step closer to enjoying a delicious frappe.

Blend It All Together

Now that you have all your ingredients prepared, it's time to blend it all together. If you're using a blender, simply add your coffee, milk, sweetener, and ice into the blender jug. Secure the lid tightly and blend on high speed until everything is well combined and the ice is crushed to your desired consistency. If you're using a shaker, add your coffee, milk, sweetener, and ice into the shaker. Close the lid tightly and shake vigorously for about 30 seconds to a minute, until everything is well mixed and the ice is crushed. Once blended or shaken, pour your frappe into a glass and enjoy!

    What is Filter Grind for Coffee?

    By Graham Jones on Feb 29, 2024

    Filter grind refers to the consistency of coffee grounds optimized for use in filter brewing methods. This encompasses a broad spectrum of devices from the classic drip coffee maker to pour-overs and the Aeropress. The grind size for these methods is typically medium, resembling coarse sand. This size ensures that hot water can properly extract the coffee's flavours and aromas without passing through too quickly, as it might with a finer grind, or too slowly, as with a coarser grind.
