Your New Summer Addiction: Four Ways to Enjoy an Espressoda

Most of us can agree that our day doesn’t really start until we’ve downed a cup of joe, and we’re always looking to sample the best and most intriguing takes on the staple a.m. drink. We recently checked in with Master Barista Giorgio Milos at the opening of the new illy Caffe here in San Francisco, where we were able to sample some of their amazing new espresso drinks. We were so impressed that we begged them to share the recipes. This “espressoda” is seriously going to change your summer iced coffee habit in the BEST way possible. Our favorite part is that you can change it up with whatever flavors you like best. Trust us — espresso + soda water = your new caffeine addiction.
