Who said coffee has to be hot? The latest trend in the coffee world is cold brewed coffee, which allows you to enjoy you daily dose of caffeine even on a hot summer’s day. One of the first companies to start distributing cold coffee was Stumptown coffee roasters, but more big coffee brands started to venture into the cold coffee business after the trend took off.
While thinking of cold coffee, all those delicious ice coffees and frappuccinos may come to mind. The cold brewed coffee is however different. It’s made without any form of heating while ice coffee gets heated and is cooled down again. The grounded coffee beans steep in cold water, which absorbs all the flavour. This leads to a darker tone and a deeper body of the cold coffee.
If you like experimenting with different flavors there are a lot of options. The taste will be based on the beans you use, the grind size of the beans and your method of brewing. The one thing all cold brewed coffees have in common is that the taste is quite strong. The amount of caffeine in a cup of cold coffee is three to four times the amount in a regular cup!
The process of making cold brewed coffe can take up to 18 hours (!), but making it yourself is not impossible. There are many videos explaining how to do it, or you could use a coldbrew machine. You can order coldbrews online as well, but make sure you check if you’re getting the concentrated or regular kind, since concentrate coldbrews have to be diluted with water or milk.
