What is Cold Brewed Coffee ?

Cold brew coffee is less acidic and less bitter than hot brewed coffee.  Why? Because hot water extracts oily compounds from the grounds that dissolve easily in hot water.  These oily compounds are high in acidity which gives hot coffee its bitter taste.   

Cold brew coffee offers a more balanced cup with increased sweetness.  By reducing the acidity, the tongue is able to experience more of the natural flavors found in coffee beans.  It has a smooth, rich texture with a sweet and aromatic finish. No need to add any sugar, it’s sweet enough as it is.

Cold brew coffee is better for the digestive system.  With less acidity, people suffering from acid reflux, heartburn or other temperamental stomach issues will find comfort with a less acidic drink.  Just heat it up and enjoy your morning ritual once again.

Cold brew coffee will bring simplicity to your home. No need for electrical outlets or heating up kettles to 195-205 degrees Fahrenheit.  Cold Brew coffee is easy to make and stays fresh for up to two weeks.  And it’s versatile and can be conveniently traveled with.

Cold brew will bring variety into your life.  Since cold brew has a more balanced taste and higher flavor clarity, experimenting with single origins is like taking a trip to the vineyard.  If you're not getting floral scents of an arabica from Africa or the chocolaty & nutty flavors of Latin America, than you're not drinking coffee.  With the many specialty coffee roasters out there, why settle for ordinary coffee when you can buy from your local roasters.  Need help finding one, try some of our locally roasted fresh coffee, like Kenya or Costa Rica.

Slow Drip Versus Full Immersion

A common way to make cold brew is using the full immersion (like the Toddy) or french press method, where ground coffee is soaked in water for up to 24 hours, and then filtered.  Seems pretty simple, but this method has some drawbacks. First you need to remember to filter at the right time or your cold brew will over extract and become very bitter.  The clean up for this process can be very messy, and most importantly, this method tends to produce coffee with a lot of sediment which muddles the flavor of the coffee and gives it a gritty mouth feel.

On the other hand, with slow drip you can set it up and forget it with no risk of over extraction. Clean up is simple, just dump the ground coffee and rinse. And, because the coffee is acting as its own filter, you get a clean cup filled with sweet balanced flavor!

You can use the Bruer to make Dutch Coffee which is the same brewing method.
