What is cold brew?

By default, fresh coffee is poured with water around 93-96 ° C and the extraction is then very short. In cold brew, cold extraction in hot water is replaced by slow extraction in cold water for several hours . Simply pour cold water into the freshly ground coffee in the evening and let the coffee soak, ideally around 12 o'clock . The next day you have prepared an incredibly good coffee, which differs from the classic one mainly by higher sweetness, lower acidity and chocolate and fruit tones .

Cold brew coffee is full of flavor and refreshing, you will definitely not need to "destroy" coffee with ice cream or flavored syrups. In addition, the preparation of cold brew is almost without work , it is only time consuming. However, if you make coffee in the evening, you can be sure that you will have an amazingly good refreshment in the morning.
