Mention “cold brew coffee” and chances are that people would imagine sipping on a cup of coffee with ice. While a possibility, it is not the ice or the colder temperature that defines cold brew coffee. Rather, cold brew coffee is characterised by the method through which it is brewed.
The Cold Brew Process
During the cold brew coffee process, coffee beans are grinded before being steeped in room temperature or cold water for upwards of 12 hours. The additional time allows for a richer extraction of sugars, oils and caffeine.
The extra effort needed for cold brew coffee pays off as the resulting coffee is less acidic and bitter. Fans of cold brew often boast of its natural sweetness and smoother texture, making it much easier on both the tastebuds and stomach. Interestingly, just like your typical coffee, cold brew can be served either hot or with ice. In addition, a splash of milk can also be added.
