How to Make Iced Coffee with Cold Brew
What is Cold Brew Coffee?
Cold brew coffee is a type of coffee brewed in cold or room temperature water, rather than hot water. This method of brewing coffee is said to result in a smoother, less acidic flavor than hot-brewed coffee. It is also known to produce a higher concentration of caffeine.
Ingredients and Equipment
To make iced coffee with cold brew, you will need coarse ground coffee, cold or room temperature water, a container, a strainer, and ice. You will also need any additional ingredients you may want to add to your iced coffee, such as milk, sugar, or flavored syrups.
Preparing the Cold Brew Coffee
Start by combining the ground coffee and cold water in the container. Stir the mixture until the coffee is completely dissolved. Cover the container and let the mixture steep for 12-24 hours, depending on how strong you want the coffee to be. Once the mixture is done steeping, strain the coffee through a fine-mesh strainer, to remove any remaining grounds.
Making the Iced Coffee
Fill a glass with ice and pour the cold brew coffee over the ice. For an extra-cold drink, you can chill the coffee before pouring it over the ice. Then, add any additional ingredients you may want, such as milk, sugar, or flavored syrups. Stir the ingredients together until everything is combined, and your iced coffee is ready to enjoy!
