Question: What is the difference between McDonalds iced coffee and iced latte?

by Iced Coffee on May 12, 2012

Hi guys! So I have another question about Mcdonalds Iced Coffee – What is the difference between McDonalds iced coffee and iced latte? I asked an employee and she really wasn’t sure, but came up with a response saying the latte had cream in it. They both taste the same, and the iced coffee must have cream too as it turns a creamy color (unless the syrup does this). The latte is also more expensive. What is actually in each drink?

Here’s what a friend of mine told me:

A latte is made with espresso beans, and then mixed with milk. An iced coffee is made with coffee beans.

Let me know anything you know about my Mcdonalds Iced Coffee question, I would really appreciate it.

Iced coffee is a double brewed batch of coffee (i.e. extra strong) put in the fridge to obtain the cold. If they are adding cream without you asking in this drink, then you need a better barista. Iced latte (latte being espresso shots in milk/cream) is a cold milk with shots of espresso in it over ice. To clarify both drinks are over ice, but only one should automatically come with milk.

Iced Latte is a strong espresso coffee with a topping of frothed steamed milk.

Iced Coffee- Just Regular Coffee on Ice (with milk, cream) Whatever you want.

An iced latte is made with one or two shots of espresso (made from espresso beans) and then filled to the top with milk. Iced coffee is just coffee (made from coffee beans) with some milk added. Iced coffee has less calories because there’s less milk.
