These chilled cousins are more different than you might think. Cold Brew is made without heat, which creates lower acidity for a smoother, naturally sweet taste. Iced Coffee is brewed double strength then cooled, which creates a refreshing, lighter body. It’s served sweetened, often with a splash of milk.
Same coffee, different tastes. That’s the flavor mystery that will unfold if you try brewing a single coffee with both hot and cold methods. Why does temperature make such a difference? Starbucks partner Renee Frechin, chemist and coffee master, helps unravel the details with an experiment because, as she says, “coffee is chemistry.”
Cold Brew coffee is one of this year’s hottest drinks. And now we’ve made it easier than ever to craft your own batch at home. Starbucks® Cold Brew Coffee Pitcher Packs come pre-ground and measured.

I've been a Barista in high end coffee for about 4 years now. One of the things you learn early on is that it is distasteful to ever ice espresso. Many go forward never questioning why this is such a bad idea, but I have an inquisitive mind and looked into it further.
It turns out that coffee is high in chlorogenic acid, which, as the coffee cools, forms quinic acid, which has a noteable and overwhelming astringent flavor. So the task is to brew coffee in a way that does not involve heat, and also reduces the apparent acidity. In the 60's the Toddy method became popular and it produces a finished product that is notably less bitter and actually puts forward a deep caramel and chocolaty flavor. Cold brew coffee is perfect for a warm day.

For coffee drinkers, warmer weather signifies the much-anticipated switch from a hot cup of joe to a tall glass of iced. It makes sense, then, that a new trend in iced coffee is taking both coffee shops and grocery stores by storm: cold-brew coffee. The hype is nothing to scoff at: Starbucks reported a 20 percent increase in iced drink sales nationwide after it introduced cold brew coffee in stores, according to Bloomberg. But what sets it apart from traditional iced coffee? Here’s everything you need to know.

Pouring a hot brew over ice is a sure way to yield watered-down iced coffee. Chilling hot-brewed coffee is only marginally better (you lose a significant amount of coffee aroma). The best method, by far, is cold brewing. You don’t need any fancy equipment, just time and a big pitcher. You’ll end up with a smooth, concentrated extract you can dilute with water, ice, or even a little booze. You can brew the coffee in a 32-ounce French press if you prefer. Place the ground coffee and water in the pitcher, place the plunger lid on top, but don’t press the plunger down.

How to make cold brew coffee
Welcome, fellow coffee lovers! If you've never tried cold brew coffee before oryou're already addicted to the pricey bottled/coffeehouse versions, then you're in the right place.
Today I'm sharing a super easy, quick & no-fuss method for making cold brew coffee, which just so happens to make THE BEST iced coffee.
Yes, I applied bold, italic AND underline formatting all at the same time. I save that trifecta for things I feel extremely passionate about, like a "damn fine cup of coffee" (now I'm craving cherry pie).

Say it with us, people: Cold brew is not just hot coffee poured over ice. No, the staggeringly expensive, shockingly strong iced coffee that runs through our veins all summer long is an entirely different beast, made by slow-steeping coffee beans before straining them out. The result is dark, intense, and can often be very bitter. Although it's not rocket science, making cold brew is a little more complicated than pouring water over a batch of beans and forgetting about it. Avoid these common mistakes, and you'll have cold brew so good, you could charge $5 for a small.

Once you taste really good cold brew, it's very hard settling for ordinary iced coffee. Coffee shops and gourmet grocers are aware of cold brew's charms, and they now charge a premium for it. My local Starbucks charges $3.87 for cold brew (at current rates that converts to £2.95, AU$5), an extra 68 cents on top of their already pricey $3.19 large iced coffee ( £2.43, AU$4.18). Adding "house-made vanilla sweet cream" brings the cost up to $4.19 ( £3.19, AU$5.49, 16 oz.).
Now consider that a 3-pound bag of Kirkland Costa Rica coffee ($15 at my neighborhood Costco) can make five 24-ounce batches of concentrated cold brew. With each batch enough for 12 separate drinks, that's 60 drinks for $15 ( £11.43, $19.66 AU$) compared with three to four bought at the cafe. That's why you should definitely brew your own, and better tasting, cold-brew java at home. You'll not only avoid the high retail mark-up, but you'll always have delicious chilled coffee on hand, too.

During the cold-brew process, time replaces heat. Todd Simpson, a chemical engineering graduate of Cornell, and who developed the Toddy® Cold Brew System, discovered that high temperature facilitates the release of undesirable flavor elements.
A roasted coffee bean contains many compounds that are extracted during the brewing process. Some of those compounds, including certain oils and fatty acids, are soluble only at a high temperature. During the cold brew process, coffee beans are never exposed to high temperature (this only occurs after a rich liquid coffee concentrate has been produced).
