Warming Up to Cold Brewing


The Lowdown:


Cold-brewing is a recent trend in the coffee world that has proven very popular with hip cafes in big cities, but is it just an “artisan” trend of the moment or is there really something more to it? … I assume the title probably gave away our stance …


The idea is pretty darn simple—allowing your coffee grinds to slowly diffuse into water over a longer stretch of time to create a versatile cold coffee with a lot of benefits. This isn’t a crusade against the merits of good old-fashioned hot coffee, but if you have yet to try this new brewing method, there is no reason to hold off any longer.


The Why:


Lower Acidity: A lot of people love the way coffee smells, but find the acidic bite of it unpleasant. Cold brewing leaves much of the acid in coffee grounds behind, producing a flavorful and smooth coffee that is easier on teeth, stomachs, and taste buds.


Better and Truer Flavor: Less of that acid means more flavor and nuance—chocolate and caramel notes really pop in light island coffees and fruity, spicy flavors leap out in darker roasts.


Longer Lasting Freshness: As nothing is chemically altered in a cold brew, this means that the coffee’s flavor is more stable and can often maintain its freshness for up to 10 days.


It’s Versatile: A cold brew concentrate makes excellent iced coffee with a few cubes, delicious hot coffee, diluted with hot water, or a great addition to cocktails or other recipes.


Easy Prep: See below!
