Cold is What’s Hot

Apr 10, 2015|

The hottest trend in coffee is cold, cold brew that is.

Cold brew is becoming an emerging phenomenon and you should better understand what cold brew is exactly. It shouldn’t be confused with iced coffee. Iced coffee is hot coffee or espresso allowed to cool and then served over ice. Cold brew coffee is just what it sounds like, coffee grounds steeped in room-temperature water for up to 24-hours which produces a concentrated coffee that is diluted with water, usually by 50%, and served chilled.

To understand the difference between hot and cold brews and the science involved, you can check out this comparison which breaks down the two different methods.

Proponents of cold-brew tout the fact that because the grounds aren’t exposed to hot water, the resulting coffee is more flavorful and nuanced along with being less bitter than traditional hot coffee.

As the warmer months of the year approach and everyone is looking for that summer beverage, cold brewed coffee is quickly becoming the hot choice.
