The News on Cold Brew
Iced Coffee vs Cold Brew Iced Coffee Sounds the same but here are some differences between iced coffee and cold brew iced coffee. Let’s brew it down: Iced Coffee is a refreshing drink essentially made with coffee that is brewed with ground coffee beans and hot water. The hot brewed coffee is then poured over ice and cooled. Iced coffee is more acidic and has a more bitter after taste.
Cold Brew Iced Coffee is made with coffee that is brewed with ground coffee beans and cold water over a longer period of time - usually 12-24 hours. It's called 'cold brew coffee concentrate' which is then poured over ice, diluted with water(if desired), and served. Cold brew coffee is much more caffeinated, but less acidic and has a smooth, mellow taste. Cold brew coffee can also be easier on people with a sensitive stomach, and since it's sweeter than a classic brewed coffee, it's great for people who look to cut down on sugar.
