All morning I have been researching this recent trend among coffee drinkers, Cold Brew coffee.
What is this and how is it different from just regular iced coffee?
Well to get started, it is an entire different process.
Iced coffee is made by pouring hot water through the grounds of the coffee and letting it sit to cool.
Cold brew coffee is coarse ground coffee steeped in room temperature water or cold water for about 12 hours, the coffee grounds are then filtered out of the coffee and then it is poured over ice.
Cold brew coffee has lower acidity since the beans never come in contact with hot water.
The result of this is sweeter, smoother taste of coffee. Yum!
It all started in Japan when it was introduced to the Dutch traders from Indonesia in 1609. For this reason many call it Dutch coffee.
Because of the rising popularity of cold brew coffee, we decided to install the machine to start making it! Right in time for summer and the track season coming we are in the works of putting together this machine and learning how everything works. It will be up and running soon so we can start delivering this delicious coffee to you on a daily basis.
