About Cold Brew
Cold brew is a distinct coffee brewing method that involves steeping coarsely ground coffee in cold water for an extended period, typically 12 to 24 hours. The result is a smooth, low-acidity coffee concentrate that is enjoyed chilled or over ice.
The history of cold brew dates back centuries, with its origins traced to ancient civilizations. Cold brewing gained prominence in Japan during the 17th century with the development of the Kyoto-style method, where coffee is dripped slowly, drop by drop, through a cold water apparatus. Fast forward to the 1960s, and cold brew began to captivate coffee connoisseurs globally, evolving into the beloved brewing technique we embrace today.
Why is it called cold brew, you may ask? The name aptly reflects the brewing process, as the coffee grounds are steeped in cold water rather than being exposed to heat during extraction. This unique brewing method extracts the flavors and compounds from the coffee beans differently, resulting in a distinct taste profile and smoothness.
Now, let’s uncover a fascinating tidbit about cold brew. Did you know that cold brew typically has a higher caffeine content than traditional hot coffee? Since the steeping process takes a longer time, the coffee grounds have more time to release caffeine, resulting in a potent and invigorating brew.
