It is finally warm here in Minnesota. School is letting out, bicycles are speeding by, and everyone is enjoying our short-lived summer. As the temperatures continue to rise, hot coffee drinkers may enjoy their steaming cup of coffee a little less. So what do you do on a hot summer afternoon when you are looking for a pick me up?
That’s right everyone, it’s time to switch from your warm cozy winter coffee drinks to your favorite cool and refreshing summer drinks. Oftentimes, that will include cold brew.
You may have noticed, that cold brew coffee has exploded in popularity in the last several years. This unique type of coffee, made with cold water instead of hot, is surprisingly versatile—here’s what makes it unique:
- It has ~66% less acidity
- And ~66% less bitterness
- And it’s made as a concentrate that you can dilute with any liquid
What you end up with is a super-smooth coffee with all the rich aromas and sugars, but without harsh bitter, or sour notes.
