Iced Latte vs Iced Coffee Explained
Now, let's clear up a little confusion. An iced latte and an iced coffee might look similar, but they have two main differences:
First is the coffee type; iced coffee is made with regular brewed coffee, while an iced latte uses espresso or very strong coffee.
The second difference is milk ratios; iced lattes have a higher milk-to-coffee ratio, making them creamier, while iced coffee has less milk and a bolder coffee taste.
