Cold Brew

Warmer weather is on the horizon & that means cold brew season!

What is cold brew?

Cold brew is not to be confused with iced coffee. The main difference in these brew methods is temperature. Cold brew is coffee that is brewed with room temperature water & refrigerated. Iced coffee is coffee that is brewed with almost boiling water and then served over ice. Depending on the recipe, cold brew takes about 16 – 24 hours to make. The longer extraction period makes it less acidic than regularly brewed coffee and therefore is naturally more sweet & less bitter than iced coffee.

What you need

How to brew
