After months of rain and uncertainty, summer is finally upon us and what better way to cool down than with a cold brew!
This popular brewing method has been sweeping around America and has now made its way across the pond for us Brits to enjoy.
Of course, we’ve all heard of the iced coffee (hot coffee poured over ice) but rather than being a type of coffee, cold brew is a brewing method of its own. It involves steeping the ground coffee in cold/room temperature water for 12-24 hours.
The lower the water temperature, the longer the coffee needs for extraction which is why, to get that caffeine buzz, it’s recommended you leave for a minimum of 12 hours.
The lack of hot water means less extraction from the coffee grounds making this less bitter with a sweeter taste.
