Cold Brew vs Iced Coffee - Which One to Choose? - Little Coffee Place

You might have noticed that the cold brew coffee craze has taken the country by storm over the past few years. But what exactly is cold brew and how does it differ from plain old iced coffee?

Directions

1) Beginning with the beans, don’t over grind them here. They needn’t be finely ground into dust, since they’ll be spending a lot of time in the water you actually want something coarsely ground (otherwise it can become bitter).

2) medium roast

3) A good ratio is one quarter pound of beans to four cups of water.

4) Use filtered, room temp water.

5) Let the coffee steep for 12-24 hours at room temperature.

6) Strain through mesh or cheesecloth (or make the whole thing in a French Press).

Cold Brew vs. Iced Coffee | 1912 Pike

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.

Science of Coffee: Hot vs. Cold Brewed Coffee

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.”

I come from the Lorelai Gilmore school of coffee drinking. I like my coffeereally strong, really dark, really often, and preferably served to me by a cute guy in a backward baseball cap and flannel. Unfortunately, my body doesn’t agree with my desperate desire to achieve Gilmore Girls’ levels of caffeine addiction.

I have to be very intentional with how I drink coffee. If I have any caffeine after noon, I can’t sleep a wink at night. And ever since I was pregnant, too many cups of the tar-like coffee I love gives me the worst heartburn ever. Lots of folks have suggested moving to a lighter roast (ha!) or even cutting out the coffee all together (HA!) to solve the heartburn issue, but I found an even better solution—cold brew coffee!

Cold Brew - Zingerman's Coffee Company

Cold brew is a method of preparation that uses cold water and time to produce a naturally sweet and less acidic beverage. When coffee is brewed using hot water the higher temperature releases acids which are otherwise muted in the cold brew process. Typically, cold brew is steeped for a 16-24 hour period.

At Zingerman’s Coffee Company we are pleased to present an innovative and delicious product using the aforementioned elements. We use high quality, single origin coffees from South America and Indonesia, coarsely ground, then steep them for 16 hours at 42 degrees F. Zingerman’s cold brew coffee is a refreshing, caffeinated, ready-to-drink beverage that pleases the most discerning of palates. Our blend unlocks a powerful, well balanced, full- bodied beverage with a long finish with notes of rich chocolate. It is super smooth, sweet and refreshing. It is perfect for your morning brew or as an afternoon pick me up! It even tastes great heated up!

Cold brewed coffee has less acidity and can tend to be more strongly caffeinated. It can be ideal as a base for iced coffee since no dilution will occur after being iced.

Cold brew coffee is the newest coffee craze sweeping the nation, and quite frankly, we’re glad. It’s about damn time. Cold brew is smoother and naturally sweeter on the palate than regular coffee, which makes it more enjoyable to consume without high-calorie additives. Because of the brewing process, it’s more concentrated than standard hot-brewed coffee, which means its caffeine content is through the roof. We could go on and on about why we love cold brew, but that’s not what this article is about.

Everyone from Dunkin’ Donuts to your local neighborhood coffee shop is getting in on the cold brew craze, but what about those of us DIYers who want to make it ourselves? We knew we weren’t alone, so we decided to throw together this handy guide. Here’s the step-by-step guide to a solid cold brew.

Whipping up quality cold-brew coffee is easy and delicious -- and saves you money.

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.

What is Cold Brew Coffee & How to Make It Easily | Tasteaholics.com

It’s a given that everyone has different tastes in coffee. Some people prefer a dark roast served pure black, while others will pour everything imaginable into their cup, from sugar, to cream to cocoa or even peanut butter! The varieties are endless when it comes that perfect cup o’ Joe. But what’s even more interesting are all the variations that come with actually brewing the coffee to begin with!

We’re probably all familiar with the standard “drip” method. Most coffee makers use this method to brew up some quick coffee using only ground coffee, some water and coffee filters. These are most commonly found in homes and offices, and while they’re quick and handy, the stuff that comes out can be bitter and bland. Perhaps that’s why most people prefer their coffee with sugar and cream.

The problem with this drip method is that water is pushed through the coffee grounds quickly and doesn’t have a chance to actually brew! Think of how you make tea: pour boiling water over tea leaves and leave it to mingle for some time! We leave our tea leaves in our cup until we’re done drinking. Compare this to the 20 seconds or so it takes to get some coffee from a coffee maker; it’s no comparison.

But what sets it apart from traditional iced coffee? Here’s everything you need to know.

Cold Brew Coffee Concentrate- The Little Epicurean

Living in the city (Silver Lake area of Los Angeles) had its perks. I could walk everywhere: market, restaurants, banks, bars, etc. More importantly, during the hot summer months it meant I could simply cross the street every morning/afternoon to get iced coffee. Without realizing it, I was spending close to $20 a week to sustain my need for caffeine.  And then I moved to the suburbs. Pasadena isn’t technically a suburb, but I live in an area that requires a car to get anywhere. The only place I can walk to is a gas station, and they don’t sell iced coffee. That’s where coffee concentrate comes into play.

Coffee concentrates seem to be popping up everywhere. From the rows of bottled coffee concentrates I see at the market to the numerous cold brew coffee concentrate kits I stumble upon online, it is definitely a hot commodity. I’ve purchased my fair share of these products. I love the ease of being able to whip up a batch of iced coffee at a moment’s notice. Simply grab a glass, pour, and enjoy. Obviously, buying these bottles and kits also adds up. This homemade cold brew coffee concentrate solves everything.

A super clean, crisp, cold brewed coffee. You can use this as a concentrate and dilute with a few ounces of water or drink it straight up. Tastes delicious and.

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.

I decided to make my own cold brew coffee brewer.

Homemade Cold Brew Iced Coffee Common Mistakes

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.

How To Make Cold Brew Coffee (The Best Method For Iced 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).

What is Cold Brew Coffee?


Cold brew coffee is coffee grounds infused over a longer period of time in room temperature or cold water. This is in contrast to classic brewed coffee, which uses hot water to quickly extract flavor from ground coffee beans. This slower "brew" time (really infusion or steeping) results in smoother, less acidic coffee that has more caffeine since it's hanging out in the water longer. 

Before we get to the exact HOW of cold brew coffee, let's discuss the WHY. If you're a fan of regular iced coffee, you're probably curious why anyone would use this method instead of the brewed coffee + ice combo.

Make cold brew coffee at home! It's so easy, and your iced coffee will never taste watery or bitter again.

If you crave a good iced coffee in the summer, but loathe the way so many end up tasting watery or overly bitter, then there’s only one solution: cold brew coffee. This method guarantees a smooth and icy cup, every time.

Making cold brew coffee is no great secret, nor does it require the ninja-level skills of a trained barista in order to master. You don’t even need much special equipment beyond a large container for making the coffee and a strainer.

Here’s how it works: Grind the coffee coarsely, which you can do yourself at home or wherever you buy the beans. Combine the grounds with water, then let it steep overnight, or for around 12 hours.

During this time, the coffee slowly infuses into the water, creating a strong, concentrated brew. Strain the next morning, and you’re ready to go.

Cold-brewed coffee is actually dirt simple to make at home using a Mason jar and a sieve. You just add water to coffee, stir, cover it and leave it out on the counter overnight. A quick two-step filtering the next day (strain the grounds through a sieve, and use a coffee filter to pick up silt), a dilution of the brew one-to-one with water, and you’re done. Except for the time it sits on the kitchen counter, the whole process takes about five minutes.

How to make iced coffee that tastes better than cold brew in three ...

It’s getting to be the season for iced coffee in the northern hemisphere, and there are a dizzying array of methods to prepare it.

Last summer marked the year that “cold brew” coffee—a method that steeps coffee grounds for many hours with cold or room temperature water—went mainstream. Cold brew, which has a smoother, less bitter taste, represented a radical improvement in summer-appropriate coffee.

But iced coffee lovers, there is a better way.

Riff Cold Brewed Coffee Launches in Oregon - BevNET.com

PORTLAND, Ore. — Urban Farmer, located on the 8th floor of The Nines Hotel, celebrated the debut of Riff Cold Brewed Coffee on Monday evening with custom concocted cold brewed coffee cocktails and small bites. An estimated 100 special guests including family, friends, investors, distributor and account representatives, and collaborators were in attendance.

Jeff Brown, GM of Food & Beverage Operations for Sage Hospitality Group (owner/operator of Urban Farmer and Departure Restaurant + Lounge), took the honors of cutting the ceremonial red ribbon to introduce Riff’s inaugural tap handle.

“Our partnership with Riff allows us to create a rich coffee experience backed by a great story,” Brown said. “Their product integrity and creativity aligns with our vision of creating places for people to go to, and not go through.”

Is Cold Brew Coffee Better for You Than Regular Coffee? | Glamour

For most of us, coffee is a no-brainer: You brew a pot in the morning and go about your day. But Jessa Duggar Seewald is making some people rethink that habit.

The Jill and Jessa: Counting On star recently posted two photos of coffee on Instagram with a caption that details how and why she's a cold-brew coffee fan. (In case you're not familiar with it, cold brew coffee is steeping coffee grounds in room-temperature or cold water for an extended period of time.)

Cold-brew coffee is a hot hot hot trend, and you can make it yourself ...

If summer's heat has left you feeling bitter and over-extracted, think cold-brew, as in cold-brewed coffee. Fans say cold-brew is less bitter than coffee that has been subjected to heat. While there are gadgets for producing cold-brew, you can make it with no special equipment. This technique is so low-tech that anyone with running water can enjoy it.

The facts:

Cold brew has a lower acidity level. Since boiling water is not running the show, the grounds are not the subject of heat, and therefore the chemical profile of the brew is different. The difference is lower acid and a smoother cup of Joe. The taste difference is noticeably sweeter, no matter what your coffee bean choice.

Cold-Brew Coffee Maker Review - Consumer Reports

The flavor of cold-brew coffee is determined by the quality of the beans and the water, the amount and grind of coffee used, and the length of time the grounds steep. These cold-brew coffee maker models make the process convenient, but unlike with hot brewing, they do not influence the coffee’s taste. 

Bruer Cold Bruer.

How it works: The Bruer cold-brew coffee maker stands out from the others we looked at because its process is flow-through. You place ice and water in the upper chamber, and a drop of water per second drips to the grounds. The extract, ready to drink, collects below, yielding about 20 ounces. (Instructions for concentrate are included.)

Pros: The fastest per ounce, with no waiting for coffee to drain once it’s brewed. Permanent filter.

It's Time to Cool It With Cold Brew - Grub Street

Cold brew has become America's go-to ice coffee, but it's only good in a bland and nonspecific kind of way.

Iced-coffee season is winding down, which is to say, cold-brew season is winding down. In less than a decade, cold-brewed coffee — coffee that is steeped in room-temperature water, usually overnight but sometimes longer — has become America’s go-to option for iced-coffee. Its origins go back much further (maybe to the Netherlands, maybe to Latin America, and maybe to both), and for years it was a New Orleans curiosity before exploding. The technique proliferated among the country’s coffee experts before eventually landing at Starbucks (of course) and Dunkin’ Donuts, giving way to things like draft lattes and “nitro-brewed” tap coffee. It’s in our grocery stores and gas stations. Cold brew has crept into every corner of the coffee-drinking world, and it’s gotten to the point where everyone would benefit from drinking something else.

Forget Cold Brew–Try Flash Brewed Iced Coffee Instead

Cold brew is everywhere these days, from the fanciest third-wave coffee shop in the Mission to the Starbucks inside your grocery store. But according to a few Bay Area roasters, the trendy method–where grounds are steeped in cold water overnight–isn’t the best way to make iced coffee. Instead, places like Four Barrel, Highwire and Counter Culture advocate flash brewing, an improved version of the old-fashioned technique of pouring hot coffee over ice.

“My business partners and I…always preferred the brighter notes and balance in the cup that blooming coffee with hot water provides,” Robert Myers, owner of Highwire Coffee Roasters, wrote in an email. “[Cold brew made in a] Toddy, to me, always tasted muddled and thick.

Best Cold Brew Coffee

Five years ago, cold-brew coffee was the exception, less common than hot-drip coffee and espresso poured over ice. Now it's the rule, both at indie coffee shops and at Starbucks alike. Lower temperatures don't extract the acids that give hot coffee floral and acidic fruit-forward flavors, so you'll end up with something smoother, with notes that are more chocolate-like and nutty — when done well, at least. Year after year, be Coffee, using beans that could be described as well-developed, though certainly far from roasty, burnt, or smoky, seems to have figured out an equation that leads to the nearly perfect cup (at least, in our opinion). Best of all, they are consistent, unlike their competitors, which seem to treat iced coffee as an afterthought. Even better, the cold brew is strong.

Cold Brew Coffee

The cold brew method allows you to make a ready-to-drink beverage or a concentrate that can be mixed with milk, water, almond milk, or even hot water or milk to enjoy a variety of recipes.

Cold brewing requires 12-24 hours to brew. This slow process allows the maximum amount of flavor and caffeine to be extracted from the coffee without forcing all of the acid with hot water. Cold brew is proven to be 65-70% less acidic than a hot brewed coffee.

Simply fill the pitcher half way with cold water, put the coffee in the basket, place the basket in the pitcher, and pour the rest of your water through the coffee until it is full.

How to make cold brew coffee concentrate at home

ortland, Oregon–based roaster Stumptown is a champion of cold coffee. In addition to bottling its signature cold brew, Stumptown offers nitrogenated cans ($5), milk-topped cartons and sparkling coffees. Brent Wolczynski holds the title of cold brew production manager at Stumptown and is responsible for quality control just as much as product development. In other words, he knows cold brewing techniques better than just about anyone.

While, in theory, cold brew can be made by soaking coffee grounds in a bowl with water and straining the liquid through a coffee filter or cheesecloth, Wolczynski recommends the Filtron system ($38). “The wool filter does a great job of making a clean cup with little sediment,” he says. “But if you don’t have one at home, you can also steep coffee in a French press and pour what you’ve pressed through a paper filter to polish it off.

What is cold brew coffee

On a hot summers day there’s nothing quite like a nice, cold … coffee?
Although Cold Brew Coffee isn’t exactly a new innovation, in the last few years interest in the drink has really taken off, especially in North America, where they even have a National Cold Brew day*! Cold Brew Coffee is not quite as popular here in the UK, yet …however, it has certainly been getting a lot of attention recently; so what exactly is Cold Brew, and what makes it different?
First of all, it’s important to recognise that Cold Brew is not the same as ‘iced coffee’ or a blended cold coffee drink; to make a Cold Brew, we’re not just adding ice to the coffee! Cold Brew Coffee involves a different extraction method, this significantly alters the taste of the coffee when compared to the flavours we would get if we brewed the same coffee with heat.
Preparing a Cold Brew is a much slower process than brewing a normal coffee because we don’t have the heat to help us move things along as quickly.

My heart seems to belong to coffee. It hasn’t always been quite like this. My days used to start so early with a big, cozy mug of tea, some reading, a little industriousness, but mostly quiet puttering about before I made my day. Summer busyness is bringing some later nights, which means slightly later mornings (with plenty of puttering about still, thank goodness). As soon as I snap out of my mid-morning haze, I start craving the dark, roasty, slightly acidic tang of strong coffee. There’s a lot of power in that first sip.

Have you jumped on the cold brew coffee bandwagon yet?

It has been unseasonably hot here so far this summer and for me the thought of a hot cup of coffee doesn’t quite hold the same appeal as it did when it was cold. But the baby doesn’t sleep through the night anymore so coffee is clearly still an essential part of surviving the day, which is why I needed to know how to make cold brew coffee. And so do you!


It’s the perfect drink for this time of year – straight out of the fridge, poured over ice, caffeinated goodness. The awesome thing about cold brew coffee is that you can make it in advance and leave it in the fridge for a few days. No trying to cool down freshly brewed coffee quickly to make an iced coffee, no mucking around with blenders and ice-cream (not that I’m ever opposed to an ice-cream iced coffee!) but this is icy cold coffee in pure simplicity.

How to make cold brew coffee

It has happened slowly over the last year or so, as my body and my health has continued to shift and improve, but I have developed a pretty solid morning habit that involves a quality cup of organic coffee shortly after I rise. I have come to find that this morning routine serves many purposes for me, personally, but most importantly, I find it’s a really beautiful morning ritual, something that I greatly enjoy and always allow myself the space to honor and totally embrace, no matter where in the world I am.

Often I am asked “is coffee good for you?” As you can probably imagine, my answer to this question is quite similar to how I respond to many other food and health related questions and that is – “it depends”.

I can tell you that when my health was at it’s worst, I couldn’t tolerate coffee at all, not even in the smallest of amounts. It took serious gut healing, managing chronic fatigue and getting my liver detoxified, along with many other advancements to my health, to finally being able to enjoy coffee again. I can also tell you that while most mornings that you’ll find me with a cup of java, I also give my body a break, often, replacing my coffee with matcha some mornings, or even an herbal tea (to be certain that I am not dependent on the caffeine). As usual, I just generally stay in tune with what my body needs, day by day.

How to make cold brew cold

For the uninitiated, cold brew coffee is achieved without any heat. The coffee grounds are instead simply saturated with cold water and set aside at room temperature to steep. What results is an insanely smooth, ridiculously addictive brew that, compared to traditionally brewed coffee, is far less bitter. And, fortunately, it’s easy to make at home. The only trick is it requires quite a lot more coffee grounds than traditionally brewed coffee since there’s no assist from heat; however, the smooth, decidedly not-bitter result more than merits the slightly extra expense. Besides, making homemade cold brew coffee is exponentially less pricey than purchasing it at your local coffeehouse.

Cold Brewed Coffee

Cold Brew is a coffee made by mixing coffee grounds with water, over a long period of time. Typically cold brewed coffee takes 12-24 hours; at room temperature or lower.

Cold brewed coffee has less acidity and can tend to be more strongly caffeinated. It can be ideal as a base for iced coffee since no dilution will occur after being iced.

The history of cold brew coffee is fascinating

In Cuba,” reports a coffee compendium published in 1922, “the custom is to grind the coffee fine, to put it into a receiving vessel, and to pour cold water on it. This is repeated many times, until the coffee mass is well saturated. The final result is a highly concentrated extract, which serves for making cafe au lait, or cafe noir, as desired.” What this century-old recipe describes, of course, is nothing less than the trendiest drink of the past several summers: cold-brew coffee.


Cold brew — made by letting coffee grounds soak in water at or below room temperature — is now a ubiquitous feature of the American city. Packaged in handsome brown bottles and poured by baristas in hip coffee shops, it was once a much rarer treat, disregarded and diminished by even the country’s most involved members of the industry. Around the same time as the above passage described Cuban coffee, a trade publication claimed to have the latest chemical science on its side when it declared that “the practice of soaking the grounds in cold water is to be condemned.”

It is that time of year again when coffee shops start selling over-priced cold brewed coffee. Paying $4 or $5 for a cup of cold brewed coffee is ridiculous once you know how easy it is to make your own. Cold brewing a coffee concentrate is not rocket science.

The best 9 cold brew coffee makers to buy from in 2017

Everybody loves cold-brew iced coffee: The chocolatey, smooth flavor; its versatility as an ingredient in coffee mocktails, cocktails, or baking; and the "low acid" that has made it famous as an alternative to traditional iced coffee beverages is only a portion of why this brewing method has caught on like a flash. The other main reason is that it's so easy to prepare: Simply add cool water and coarse-ground coffee and let the magic happen—just try to find a brewing method that's as set-it-and-forget-it as cold brew.

I Just Got OXO's Cold Brew Coffee Maker, and So Should You

Cold brew coffee is basically the only kind of coffee I like, and when there wasn’t a Starbucks readily available, I’d been using the popular Takeya cold brew pitcher for over a year to make it at home. That all changed when my mother-in-law got me OXO’s alternative as an early Christmas gift to help me through a sleep-deprived Deals Week, and it quickly became one of my favorite possessions.

Chemistry explains why cold brew coffee tastes better than hot

Smooth and sweet versus floral and acidic: Any coffee aficionado can note the distinctive taste profiles that distinguish cold brew coffee from a hot cup of conventionally-brewed java.

Both beverages arise from the same starting materials, coffee grounds and water, but differ wildly in taste.

How a coffee bean is roasted and ground makes a huge difference in how the final drink tastes, smells, and feels in your mouth. But the way it's brewed is probably the most important contribution you can make to that final, sweet, sweet taste of joe.

How to make cold brew coffee in 3 easy steps

Instead of making coffee using hot water, cold brew requires cold water. We simply combine ground coffee and cold water then wait while the coffee brews into an ultra-smooth, rich cup of coffee.

You may be asking, why don’t you just add ice to regular coffee?

You could do that, but adding a bunch of ice cubes to hot coffee dilutes things. The flavor is watery and any nuance the coffee had when brewed gets trampled.

With cold brew, the flavor is rich and strong.

How to cook: Cold Brew Coffee

Method: 
Place coffee in a large bowl or French press and pour over 3 cups of filtered, room temperature water. Set aside for 10 minutes, and then stir gently to combine. Cover and set aside at room temperature for 12 hours. 

Line a fine sieve with a coffee filter. Slowly pour coffee through sieve into a pitcher, discarding the grounds. (If using a French press, slowly press down on the lid to isolate the grounds at the bottom, and then pour coffee through a filter, if you like.) 

Use coffee immediately, or chill until ready to serve. For each cup, pour one part coffee and one part water or milk over ice.  

WHAT ELSE SHOULD I KNOW? 
• Keep the coffee concentrate in your refrigerator for up to 3 days.
• It’s easy to make a larger batch. Just stick with a water to coffee ratio of 4:1 (or 5:1 for darker roasts, if you prefer).

It is that time of year again when coffee shops start selling over-priced cold brewed coffee. Paying $4 or $5 for a cup of cold brewed coffee is ridiculous once you know how easy it is to make your own. Cold brewing a coffee concentrate is not rocket science.

  1. Place ground coffee in contact with cold water for several hours.
  2. Filter out the coffee.
  3. Done.
  4. At this point, you can add more water, milk or even Baileys Irish Cream.

The only question is how do you want to filter the coffee? You could use the classic Toddy, the Primula or you could build your own on the cheap. In this tutorial, we are going to use the Reusable Cold Brew Coffee Filter Pouch by Madesco and a glass jar. No plugs or drilling or special filters. This is about as easy as coffee brewing can get.

Cold Brew Coffee Concentrate

Living in the city (Silver Lake area of Los Angeles) had its perks. I could walk everywhere: market, restaurants, banks, bars, etc. More importantly, during the hot summer months it meant I could simply cross the street every morning/afternoon to get iced coffee. Without realizing it, I was spending close to $20 a week to sustain my need for caffeine.  And then I moved to the suburbs. Pasadena isn’t technically a suburb, but I live in an area that requires a car to get anywhere. The only place I can walk to is a gas station, and they don’t sell iced coffee. That’s where coffee concentrate comes into play.

Coffee concentrates seem to be popping up everywhere. From the rows of bottled coffee concentrates I see at the market to the numerous cold brew coffee concentrate kits I stumble upon online, it is definitely a hot commodity. I’ve purchased my fair share of these products. I love the ease of being able to whip up a batch of iced coffee at a moment’s notice. Simply grab a glass, pour, and enjoy. Obviously, buying these bottles and kits also adds up. This homemade cold brew coffee concentrate solves everything.

Cold Brew Coffee

Mr. JOC and I love good coffee.  In the past, we spent a lot of time trying coffee beans from different boutique roasters and ways to make good coffee at home.

Since this past summer we have been making almost exclusively Cold Brew Coffee (水出し珈琲) at home and we’re completely in love with it.  Once you try cold-brewing your coffee, you may never go back to your coffee maker!

The Best Cold Brew Coffee Maker

Over the past two years, we’ve looked at 15 cold-brew coffee makers, analyzed dozens of at-home brewing methods and recipes, made concentrate for more than 300 cups of coffee, and served samples to a tasting panel that included expert baristas. And after all our testing, we found that the OXO Good Grips Cold Brew Coffee Maker offers the best way to make smooth, delicious iced coffee at home. It’s easy to use and well-designed, and in our tests it made cold coffee with balanced acidity, a stronger aroma, and a cleaner finish.

Al Roker's Famous Cold-Brew Coffee

I tried this coffee for the first time in Cleveland during Republican National Convention at a place called Pour. Then I went online to see how it's done. I've been experimenting with different roasters, like Six Depot Roastery in West Stockbridge, Massachusetts. Blue Bottle adds chicory for a New Orleans style, which I like, but I seem to have settled on grinding beans from Tiny Footprint and adding ground chicory. 

Make-Ahead Tip: The coffee concentrate will keep in the fridge for two weeks or more.

Cold Brew

Cold brewing, also called cold water extraction or cold pressing, is the process of steeping coffee grounds in water at cool temperatures for an extended period. Coarse-ground beans are soaked in water for a prolonged period of time, usually 12 hours or more. The water is normally kept at room temperature, but chilled water is also used. The grounds are filtered out of the water after they have been steeped using a paper coffee filter, a fine metal sieve, a French press, or felt, in the case of the "Toddy" brewing system. The result is a coffee concentrate that is often diluted with water or milk, and is served hot, over ice, or blended with ice and other ingredients such as chocolate. Slow-drip cold brew, also known as Kyoto-style, or as Dutch coffee in East Asia,[8] refers to a process in which water is dripped through coffee grounds at room temperature over the course of many hours.[9]

Nestle Buys Chameleon Cold-Brew Coffee

The world’s biggest food and beverage brand has swallowed up another indie coffee company: Nestle bought Chameleon Cold-Brew for an undisclosed price, Reuters reports.

Chameleon, which was founded in Austin in 2010 by Chris Campbell and Steve Williams, makes cold-brew coffee concentrate as well as bottled, ready-to-drink cold-brew beverages in various flavors; its products are available at stores nationwide including Whole Foods, Target, and Kroger. This marks the second major coffee acquisition for Nestle in recent months: In September, it acquired a majority stake in indie coffee darling Blue Bottle, which also sells bottled cold brew.

How to Make Cold Brew Coffee at Home

I come from the Lorelai Gilmore school of coffee drinking. I like my coffeereally strong, really dark, really often, and preferably served to me by a cute guy in a backward baseball cap and flannel. Unfortunately, my body doesn’t agree with my desperate desire to achieve Gilmore Girls’ levels of caffeine addiction.

I have to be very intentional with how I drink coffee. If I have any caffeine after noon, I can’t sleep a wink at night. And ever since I was pregnant, too many cups of the tar-like coffee I love gives me the worst heartburn ever. Lots of folks have suggested moving to a lighter roast (ha!) or even cutting out the coffee all together (HA!) to solve the heartburn issue, but I found an even better solution—cold brew coffee!

How to make cold-brew coffee

As a young student of the culinary arts, there were a handful of “commandments”—central tenets of good cooking—that each of my mentors persistently reinforced (read: screamed). One such precept, which has been indelibly seared into my cortex, is that heat equals flavor. Heat browns meat, caramelizes sugar, and extracts body-giving gelatin from bones. Heat also creates aroma, concentrates flavor compounds, and melts unctuous fats. If heat is so great (which it is), why on Earth am I promoting the practice of combining ground coffee with room-temperature water and letting it infuse slowly for hours? The answer lies in the fact that heat is indiscriminate.

It’s true that coffee brewed at 210 degrees will contain more aroma compounds, dissolved solids, and flavor than coffee brewed at 72 degrees. But this is one case where more isn’t necessarily better. Along with the good stuff, heat also extracts the majority of bitterness and astringency found in hot-brewed coffee. Exposed to far less heat, cold-brew is significantly less acerbic than its sweltering sibling. Less bitterness means that the subtler flavors found in coffee beans are more perceptible. For me, good cold-brew balances hints of dark chocolate, caramel, ripe black fruits, and vanilla with a pleasant viscosity, mild acidity, and pitch perfect bitterness. If my description sounds florid to you, it’s probably because you didn’t have cold-brew this morning. In all honesty, it’s lush, nuanced, and incredibly smooth.
