First, there was Iced Coffee which we love and then there is Cold Brew which intrigues us merely because we don’t know the difference! So what sets both our summer faves a miles apart?
Iced coffee is simply regular coffee that’s served over ice, either mixed with milk or left plain. It tends to have a brighter, more acidic taste, and it is, in many ways.
However, Iced Coffee has more chances of getting watered down. To prevent this, pour cooled coffee into an ice cube tray, freeze and use for your next cup of iced coffee.
Cold Brew Coffee
Cold Brew Coffee is much smoother in taste and has up to 65% less acidity. Cold brew can be easily brewed at home. It is less bitter than iced coffee and has more caffeine than iced coffee.
Cold brew coffee concentrate is usually diluted with milk, cream, or water, which reduces the caffeine concentration. What makes a Cold Brew so tasty is time. To make it, coarse-ground coffee is steeped in cold water for from twelve to twenty four hours. The longer the coffee sits, the stronger the flavor.
The steeping process is more sympathetic to the coffee bean, so you don’t end up with the bitter flavor that roasting can produce.
