The Birth Of Iced Coffee

The history of iced coffee has several origin stories.

One began in Algeria in 1840 and the birth of the mazagran, commonly known as the “original iced coffee”. French soldiers stationed in North Africa made a simple drink from coffee syrup, cold water, and ice. Another legend holds that credit goes to the 17th-century Viennese, who invented the bags of coffee beans left behind by the Turkish invaders.
