When the weather is cold, it doesn't mean that we should avoid cold drinks, especially if that cold drink has some great health benefits. Cold brew coffee is one of those drinks.

In case you don't what cold brew coffee is, here's the short & sweet version.

"Cold brew refers to the process of steeping coffee grounds in room temperature or cold water for an extended period."

Now you may be asking yourself, "Isn't that the same thing as brewing hot coffee, cooling it down in the fridge, and pouring it into a glass of ice?" No! There are several differences with cold brew coffee.


Best Coffee to Cold Brew

HERE'S WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW

Caffeine

You get more of it in a cold brew than in a hot cup. Essentially, you are making coffee concentrate. Bigger punch in a smaller batch.

Health Benefits

For some, coffee can be hard on the gut. Because the coffee beans in cold brew coffee never come into contact with heated water, the process of leaching flavor from the beans produces a different chemical profile from conventional brewing methods thereby giving you a cup of coffee with lower acidity.

Fresh Factor

You know how a pot of coffee will go stale if left out all day. With cold brew coffee, you don't need to worry about that. Leave it in the fridge for up to 14 days and you will still get the rich, smooth flavor and caffeinated punch.

Don't Like It Cold?

Heat it back up, but not in the microwave. Consider bringing up the heat on the stove top to preserve those rich flavors.
