Cold water brewing is a method that’s used to produce a smooth cup of iced coffee by soaking the grounds in water for an extended period of time. Proponents enjoy a mild acidity, with less bitterness than coffee brewed with hot water, and an intense, yet smooth flavor.
While hot brewed coffee is best drunk right away, cold brewed coffee can stay fresh in your fridge for up to two weeks. You can enjoy delicious iced coffee without having to make a batch every day (that is, if you can make it last that long!).
There are many different methods that can be used to brew coffee cold, from leaving it in a french press overnight, to using special cold brew systems like the Toddy and the Yama Cold Brewer. Today, I’m going to take you through my experiences cold brewing with the CoffeeSock which has quickly become my new favorite way of brewing rich and smooth iced coffee with ease.
