Most people always have their cup of Joe every morning. Who can even stand the delicious aroma of brewed coffee that is enough to clear the fog in your mind? Many prefer the standard drip over other types but have you tried cold brewing yet?
Cold brewing is done by steeping ground beans roughly in cold water for about 12 hours. This makes the concentrate less acidic and smoother compared to the traditional drip method. After you steep the coffee grounds, store in your refrigerator for about two weeks to have that iced coffee ready to be enjoyed.
Here are 6 cold brew coffees that you can purchase if you want to see the difference between drip and cold brew coffee.
