Cold Brew Coffee: Recipes, Tips & Guides

Cold Brew Coffee, who doesn't love a good cold brew on a warm day or morning? Lets talk all thing cold brew. Undoubtedly, cold brew coffee has become many coffee lovers go to drink of choice, especially during the warmer months. The prevalence of coffee shops and cafes offering their own cold brew coffee creations is on the rise, and even today, securing a cold brew coffee delivery service for your home or office is as easy as a coin toss. But what is it about cold brew coffee that captures such widespread acclaim?

Cold brew coffee has swiftly ascended in popularity as a refreshing departure from hot and iced coffee, primarily attributed to its distinctive non-heat steeping process, resulting in a remarkably smooth and sweet flavor profile. In contrast to iced coffee, cold brew coffee benefits from an extended brewing time, cultivating a milder and less acidic taste.

The innovation continues with cold brew coffee at Altura Coffee. We are now offering a cold brew concentrate for coffee lovers who prefer stronger coffee and find cold brew to be insufficient. It’s not much different from regular cold brew coffee, but the process and how to enjoy it make cold brew and cold brew concentrate play differently.In this blog, we will go over everything there is to know about cold brew coffee and cold brew concentrate so that you can better understand these two similar-yet-different drinks.

What is Cold Brew Coffee Concentrate?

Cold brew coffee is not to be confused with iced coffee. This is because cold brew does not refer to how the coffee is served or the temperature at which it is served. The term “cold brew” simply refers to the method of brewing used to create cold brew coffee concentrate.The name cold brew originates from the fact that it is made with either cold or room temperature water. After steeping the ground coffee in water for 12-24 hours, it is filtered to remove the sediment. What’s left is a delicious coffee concentrate. The end result is a smooth and flavorful coffee concentrate that can be mixed with water or milk to make a beverage. Cold brewing produces a smoother, richer coffee with less acidity and more sweetness than hot brewing.

What Is The Difference Between Cold Brew & Cold Brew Concentrate?

The ratio of ground coffee to water distinguishes cold brew coffee from cold brew concentrate. Cold brew concentrate boasts a more concentrated flavor and is best consumed by mixing it with water over ice, your favourite milk, alternate milk or even tonic water before consumption, unlike regular cold brew coffee that can be enjoyed as is.
