Cold brew is trending for a reason: It’s refreshing and flavorful, with a smoother and less bitter taste over ice than hot espresso over ice — due to cold brew’s decreased acidity. Don’t believe us? Try a shot of hot espresso over ice, then immediately try a shot of cold brew over ice to compare. Huge difference. Cold brew is the espresso shot made for iced drinks!
And you can drink cold brew in a variety of ways, just like its steamy counterpart. Add water to cold brew over ice, you get iced coffee. Add milk, you get an iced latte (plus some dark or white chocolate sauce for a mocha, or flavored syrup for a sweet flavor). Drink a shot of cold brew as is for your quick morning jolt. You can even switch out the hot coffee in your evening cocktail with some cold brew for a tasty surprise. And perhaps best of all, use cold brew in the blender for your own frozen frappé.
Remember this philosophy: hot espresso for hot drinks, cold brew for cold drinks.
So how about making your own cold brew at home? Then you can experiment as much as you’d like and enjoy the ultimate cold coffee flavor all the time. Here’s how!
