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.

Notes

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.
