Cold brewing is one of the easiest and yet fickle brewing methods for coffee. This is because the brew technique is as simple as it gets: you take your coffee, your water, put both in a jar and let rest in your fridge overnight. Strain in the morning, and you’ve got cold brew! Only, if you couldn’t guess, there’s a lot more to it than that. The tricky part is getting the grind right. No, you don’t want to use a pre-ground coffee, that would likely produce a very harsh tasting cup. If you haven’t read our last blog post, Extracting the Coffee, then we highly recommend you do. For clarity though, we’ll reiterate a couple of points made previously.
Does your favorite supermarket coffee brand only come in pre-ground varieties? Why not take this chance to try your hand at and let your tastebuds experience the art of cold brew with any of Minas Espresso’s whole coffee beans? From our conscientious Decaf to our bold Benedito Roast, our coffee is sure to shine no matter how you brew it! Although, we really must recommend the Honey Bee Specialty if you’re itching to make cold brew— the light floral notes express wonderfully due to the oxidized oils. Regardless, you can’t go wrong with any of our specialty-grade coffees!
