The Secret is Out
Cold brew is the best-kept secret the coffee world has been brewing for centuries. Cold brew coffee was invented in Japan during the 1600s and more recently popularized by upscale coffee shops.
Before we dive into the wonderful world of cold brew, it’s important to clear up one of the most common misconceptions: “isn't cold brew the same thing as iced coffee?”
Cold brew is NOT iced coffee
Cold brew is often confused with iced coffee but they’re actually very different!
Iced coffee is made from coffee grounds brewed in hot water that is cooled down by serving over ice. Cold brew coffee uses a different process - making use of cold water to extract the natural flavors instead of brewing with hot water.
