Most of us need that delicious cup of coffee (or two) everyday, and while our love for our go-to mood booster shows no signs of waning, there is a new reason all of us are lining up at the coffee shop: cold brew.
Unlike its iced coffee counterpart, cold brew is not processed with any heat; instead, ground coffee beans are steeped in cold water for several hours, and the result is a much smoother, rounder taste that allows some of coffee’s more subtle notes to shine through. It’s incredibly simple and refreshing.
