Cool Off with Cold Brew

Cold Brew.

Unlike traditional hot coffee methods that utilize heat to extract flavors quickly, cold brew coffee relies on time to achieve a rich and mellow taste.

The most common cold brew technique involves steeping coffee grounds in cold water for 12-24 hours, either at room temperature or in the refrigerator. The slow extraction process results in a concentrate that can be diluted with water or milk before serving.

Due to the prolonged steeping process, cold brew tends to be less bitter and acidic that hot brewed coffee.

It boasts a smoother, sweeter taste with subtle notes of chocolate, caramel and nuts.

Tips for Making Cold Brew at Home.

Use coarsely ground coffee beans to prevent over extraction.

Experiment with different coffee to water ratios to find your preferred strength.

Allow the coffee grounds too steep for at least 12 hours for optimal flavor extraction.

Strain the brewed coffee concentrate though filter or fine mesh sieve to remove sediment.

Serve over ice, black or with your choice of milk.
