Cold Brew Coffee
As the scorching summer sun begins to drain your energy, try a new twist to an old classic: cold brew coffee. Now don’t confuse cold and iced. They are different. Iced coffee is heated, then chilled. Cold brew coffee remains at room temperature throughout the entire brewing process. To make, you’ll need ground coffee beans, water, a pitcher and a strainer. It’s simple: place the ground coffee beans in a pitcher full of water before you go to bed, and let it sit overnight. When you wake up, strain the pitcher twice to ensure there are no particles floating around, and serve. The process may take hours, but the benefits speak for themselves. Cold brew coffee is less acidic, tastes richer, and will last about ten days longer than iced coffee. In fact, cold press is 67% less acidic than conventional brews, making it safer for your teeth and stomach. So get brewing. Cheers!
