What is Cold Brew Coffee?

Coarsely ground coffee beans steeped for a few hours to get the coffee concentrate and the same is mixed with water milk to make cold brew coffee. Cold brew coffee is less acidic and it tastes better than ice coffee. Cold-brew coffee can be served or relished, cold, or hot. Having said that, cold brew coffee calls for coffee beans, which are coarsely crushed and then steeped for 12-16 hours and finally strained! The mixture is then mixed with milk or water and sweetened as per liking.  One constant thing about the cold brew coffee recipe is that the ratios are so consistent in all the recipes. ¼ cup of coffee beans for 1 cup of coffee and the concentrate has to be mixed with the same part of water or milk as per liking. A few points should be kept in mind to make perfect cold brew coffee and the same have been explained in the blog.

Cold Brew Coffee- Ingredients Required:

Coffee Beans: You can use any coffee of your choice to make cold brew coffee. It is very important that the beans should be just coarsely ground. If you end up over-grinding the beans, the coffee will taste bitter. Further, the coarsely ground coffee beans have to be steeped. The steeping time differs from 12 hours to up to 24 hours. It generally steeps it at room temperature for 16 hours. You can start off with steeping it for 16 hours and increase the steeping time accordingly.

Water: The coffee is steeped in water, at room temperature. The coffee concentrate obtained after steeping can be missed with water or milk as per your liking.

Sweetener: You can add sugar as per taste. You can also add in sugar syrup, although it might dilute the coffee.

Ice: I love to add a lot of ice cubes to make my cold-brewed coffee. However, if you feel that ice might dilute the coffee, use chilled water or milk, instead.

Hi! I am CA Vini Mehta. A Chartered Accountant by profession, a food blogger by passion! First of all, I would like to thank you for stopping by at Viniscookbook, I hope you have a good time. Here, yo...u will find the recipes which have been tried, at times re-tried in my kitchen and relished on the dining table. I am mother of two kids and the wife of a person with a high and selective taste sense, so basically anything, before finding its place on the blog, has many levels to cross and clear. This journey started a couple of years back. Before that I was making the most usual kind of food. The only experiment used to be asking my mother how to make something new or different☺. Then, one day, I tried a recipe for butter cookies. And they did not get to go in the container as they were over before I could store them. That day I was introduced to the joy of experimenting with recipes. And I loved everything else that followed especially garnishing and photographing food. I am still not well versed with the photography dos and don’ts but I love to experiment and learn, be it photography or cooking. Hope you too enjoy this journey as much as I do☺! Stay healthy, stay tuned!.
