Chef’s Tip: June 2015

Hot Weather Cold Brew Coffee Trend!

Cold Brew Coffee isn’t just another cup (or bottle) of coffee! The cold-press coffee uses coarse-ground beans, that are soaked in water for 15 hours at room temperature. The grounds are then filtered out of the water after they have been steeped. The result is a coffee concentrate that is often diluted with water or milk, and can then be served hot, blended with ice or served with other ingredients like chocolate. Cold brewed coffee naturally seems sweeter due to its lower acidity. Because the coffee beans in cold-press coffee never come into contact with heated water, the process of leaching flavour from the beans produces a different chemical profile from conventional brewing methods.

There are also high levels of caffeine in a cup of cold brewed coffee compared to hot brewed coffee.
