So you’re ready to jump on the cold-brew bandwagon as the temperature slightly starts to warm up. But where do you start?
I’m guessing that, since you’re here, you know cold brew is not about throwing a few ice cubes in your hot coffee.
Unlike pouring ice over hot coffee, cold drip uses a simple steeping technique that helps highlight the natural chocolate, floral, and fruity notes inherent in coffee.
Not only that, the steeping helps to reduce the bitter, stale, and watered down flavor you can get icing a hot coffee. If that's not enough to get you excited take a look at the Bruer Cold Slow Drip Coffee Brewer.
