Full disclosure: I’m addicted to cold brew coffee. I’m a cold brew evangelist.

In case you haven’t ever heard the term “cold brew,” a rapidly growing trend, let me explain what it is. First off, conventionally coffee is brewed at high temperatures for short periods of time which produces a bitter cup of brew in a matter of minutes. This is what most of us are used to. 

Cold brew coffee not only tastes WAY better, it’s 67% less acidic than conventional coffee (according to a study by Toddy)

With cold brew coffee, on the other hand, coffee grounds are steeped sort of like tea, but in room temperature water for 24-36 hour. This method produces a rich, smooth, chocolatey flavor that pales in comparison to regular iced-coffee. Once you try this you will never go back.

Aside from flavor, this is PERFECT for those with a sensitive gut or trying to reduce acidic food intake.
