A Coffee Revolution
here is something so comforting about a sip of coffee thundering down our throats and enlivening each cell of our bodies. The bitterness, the nuttiness and the overwhelming aromas of a cuppa Joe have the power to eliminate despair. And enriching the experience of each treasured sip further, cold brew coffee has found its way to our cups. Cold-brew–the recently popular technique of brewing coffee transcends all the other experiences.
Cold brew coffee in the simplest terms is coffee that is brewed cold as opposed to how we have been brewing it, in hot water. It is prepared by soaking the coffee grounds in cold water for a period of 16 hours or more and then straining the mixture. The result is a cooling, refreshing, caffeinated beverage that tastes, smells and feels remarkably different from the conventionally brewed coffee. Cold brew coffee is full-bodied and naturally sweet with various muted flavours, owing to the low extraction rate of cold water. It is less acidic and easy on the stomach. Acidity can no more be a reason to avoid coffee.
