No confusion…, Cold brewed coffee is not the iced coffee. Cold brewed coffee is a coffee brewing technique where coffee grounds are soaked in room temperature water for long hours. Whereas iced coffee is brewed hot and poured over ice.
The most widely used and the traditional hot brewing process releases undesirable acids and oils. This may result in bitter flavor and acidity which is intolerable to many coffee lovers. In the case of cold brewing, only the naturally delicious coffee flavors are extracted, leaving behind the bitter oils and fatty acids. Thus, cold coffee brew gives you a perfectly balanced, smooth extraction of concentrated coffee which is low in caffeine. After brewing in room temperature, the concentrated coffee can be kept fresh in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks and used for both hot and iced coffees.
The brewing is quite simple. All you need is coffee ground, water, and cold brew machine.
