COLD BREW CoffeeCOLD BREW coffee is where it's at. Over the past decade, there has been a noticeable increase in the number of people who drink COLD BREW coffee rather than the traditional hot coffee. But what sets COLD BREW apart from traditional iced coffee? Here’s everything you need to know.

What is COLD BREW?

COLD BREW coffee takes its time to brew, steeping coffee grounds in room temperature water for at least 24 hours. Unlike regular coffee, which is brewed with hot water and is ready to drink, the COLD BREW brewing method results in a coffee concentrate. BBCR COLD BREW concentrate can be mixed with water or milk to create a very enjoyable and drinkable coffee beverage.

  • Iced coffee: This is just what it sounds like: coffee that is brewed hot, poured over ice, and served cold.

  • COLD BREW, on the other hand, is never exposed to heat. Coarse-ground BBCR single origin Colombia coffee beans are steeped in room temperature water for at least 24 hours; the grounds are filtered out, and the result is a coffee concentrate that is mixed with water or milk and poured over ice. And because the coffee is never heated, the acids and oils that can give hot coffee its bitter taste are never released, resulting in a smoother sip. COLD BREW uses time, rather than heat to extract the coffee’s oils, sugars, and caffeine.

 The benefits of COLD BREW

1- COLD BREW is super smooth... Because of the brew method, you get the smoothest coffee and it's less acidic than hot coffee. Not only do you get a smoother and sweeter taste with COLD BREW coffee, but its low acidity is also gentle on your stomach and teeth.

2- COLD BREW knows how to perk you up and put a smile on your face. :) COLD BREW tends to have higher caffeine content than hot brewed coffee because it is made from a coffee concentrate. The cold brewing process doesn't draw out more caffeine but COLD BREW is brewed with a higher coffee to water ratio, which makes the end product more potent.

3- COLD BREW is rich in flavour! Along with smoother and sweeter notes, COLD BREW lacks the strong bitter notes commonly associated with coffee.

4- COLD BREW is good for you! That's right, on top of that sweet and smooth personality, there are health benefits associated with this cup of coffee. Turns out drinking your daily coffee can reduce the risk of heart disease. The COLD BREW method doesn't destroy the majority of the antioxidants like hot brewed coffee does, which means drinking COLD BREW coffee gives you your daily dose anti-aging nutrients. 

If you are still not sure whether to switch to COLD BREW or not, just give it a try for a few days and judge for yourself how it stacks up against your regular hot coffee.
