What is cold brew coffee:
That’s an important question. Because cold brew coffee is not the same as drip coffee or regularly brewed hot coffee that’s been cooled or served over ice. Nope.
Cold brew coffee never gets hot. Instead of brewing in just a few minutes, it’s slow-brewed and steeped over 12-15 hours. This translates to coffee that’s slightly less acidic and bitter. Instead, it’s sweeter, more full-bodied in flavor, and truly the best when it comes to iced coffee.
But here’s why you’re really gonna love cold brew coffee. You can make a batch on Sunday and have fresh, homemade cold brew for the entire week. Yes, you can meal prep coffee. Awesome, right?
Why you should cold brew your coffee:
The slow infusion pulls all the great coffee flavor from the beans (and, yes, the caffeine – not to worry!)
But it also leaves behind most of the compounds that can make coffee taste bitter and sour.
This means that cold brewed coffee is incredibly smooth and almost sweet-tasting. Perfect for iced coffee.
How to make cold brew coffee:
Put one Koraput Coffee sachet in water in the ratio 1:4 that is one cup of ground coffee to four cups of water to a mason jar or French Press or other glass storage container.
Steep this coffee for 12-15 hours on your countertop/fridge . If you’d like to make it stronger, brew it longer – up to 24 hrs.
Take the coffee pouch out next morning, add cold water and ice as per taste.
Enjoy the cold brew coffee over ice or with your favorite milk or creamer.
One thing to keep in mind is that you’re actually making cold brew concentrate. And this is pretty potent stuff. Only drink this straight up if you want to feel jittery and buzzy for the rest of the day (which we don’t recommend).
Instead, we recommend serving this up over ice or diluting 50/50 with water. It is also recommend adding your favorite milk, like almond milk, cashew milk or oat milk, for a deliciously creamy, and definitely thirst-quenching beverage.
