What Is Cold Brew Coffee?

Some like it hot, but not everyone does. Some of us like a nice cold glass of iced coffee. The problem is that it’s not often made well. Many people simply pour their coffee into a glass, add ice, and wah-lah. Why is this a bad idea?

  • The ice waters down the coffee, weakening it.
  • If you purchase a coffee this way, you’ll lose money. The ice takes up a lot of additional room.
  • The coffee often tastes burnt when it’s made to be hot and later watered down.

It’s challenging to find a coffee shop that knows how to make the perfect cold brew coffee. That’s why it’s a great idea to learn how to make it yourself. You’ll be glad you did. It’s sure to be the best iced coffee you’ve ever had.
