Cold Brew Coffee Recipe


Cold brew coffee can create some confusion among inexperienced coffee drinkers. The name “cold brew” refers to the actual brewing process, rather than the temperature of the drink. Although cold brew is fairly new to the American coffee scene, it is far from new in origin. There is some debate over who was the first to craft cold brew, but we know it has been in existence for at least four centuries! Cold brew is significant because it uses cold or room-temperature water, rather than hot water, to extract flavors from the grounds. Cold brew is one of the simplest coffee drinks to create and is extremely versatile to use. Keep in mind, however, that cold brew requires 12-plus hours to make, as it takes much longer for cold water to extract the full flavor from the grounds.

  • 1.Place the coffee grounds in a large pitcher and add the water. Stir to combine. Refrigerate forroughly 12 hours (more or less time based on your desired strength of the brew).
  • 2.Pour the mixture through a filter and serve it over ice! If it is too strong, add more water.

Notes

RECIPE TIP: Using a larger pitcher, you can double or triple the recipe easily to havemore cold brew later. For a fun experiment, make a batch of cold brew and a batchof traditional hot coffee using the same type of grounds. Test your palate. Can youtaste the difference between each one?

FUN FACT: Iced coffee and cold brew: Is there a difference? Iced coffee is simply coffee brewed hot, then poured over ice. Cold brew, however, is brewed using cold or room-temperature water, which requires up to 12 hours to extract all the flavor. The result is a less bitter, less acidic, but highly concentrated coffee with even more caffeine.

Milk ‘n’ Honey Cold Brew Recipe

Vietnamese iced coffee recipe

Vietnamese iced coffee recipe

Coffee in Vietnam is more about ritual than caffeine consumption. The practice of making coffee is given time and thought rather than being rushed. This traditional Vietnamese coffee drink is also smaller in comparison to some, as the Vietnamese are concerned more with quality over quantity. Vietnamese coffee is known to be quite strong and bitter, so a little is really all you need. This is also why traditional ietnamese coffee is served with sweetened condensed milk. The sweetness of the milk cuts the bitterness of the coffee, leaving you with a delicious creamy treat. A Vietnamese filter called a phin is recommended for this recipe; however, a French press could be used as well.

Scandinavian Coffee

Scandinavian Coffee


Scandinavian coffee originated in, you guessed it, Scandinavia (Sweden and Norway, in particular). However, it is now often attributed to parts of the American Midwest, where it likely migrated with Scandinavian immigrants. Scandinavian coffee has one consistent ingredient that cannot be replaced or substituted: a raw egg. Yes, you read that correctly. This recipe includes mixing a raw egg (including the eggshell) into your coffee grounds before boiling everything together in a pot and straining it out to leave behind a smooth, balanced cup of coffee with very little bitterness. The idea behind the egg is that because it is a natural “clarifier,” it attracts the impurities in the grounds to itself rather than allowing them to pass through into your beverage. It’s weird, yes, but it’s also pretty darn cool.
