Unlocking the Sweetness of a Cold Brewed Specialty Coffee

Do you ever find yourself looking for a refreshing coffee experience that's not only delicious but also convenient? Look no further than cold brew specialty coffee, a delightful concoction that is rapidly gaining popularity among coffee aficionados. In this post, we'll dive deep into the world of cold brew coffee, exploring its unique brewing process and uncovering the taste and convenience benefits.

The Art of Brewing Cold Brew

Cold brew coffee is not just a trendy fad; it's a method that has been around for a while now. However, in recent years, it has undergone a resurgence, attracting attention for its flavour and convenience qualities.

The process of making cold brew is distinct from your regular hot brew. Instead of using hot water, cold brew relies on time and cold water to extract the delicate flavours from coffee beans. Here's how you can craft your own cold brew:


- Ground specialty coffee beans
- Cold, filtered water
- A large mason jar or pitcher
- A fine-mesh strainer or cold brew coffee maker


1. Measure out your coffee beans. A typical ratio is 80g of ground coffee to 1lt of cold water, but you can adjust it to your taste. If you don't have a grinder - we can grind it for you :-)

2. Combine the coffee grounds and cold water in a plunger or pour over.

3. Stir the mixture well, ensuring all the coffee grounds are fully saturated.

4. Seal the container and let it steep in the refrigerator for at least 12-24 hours. The longer it steeps, the stronger the flavour.

5. Once steeped, strain the coffee to remove the grounds.

6. Dilute the concentrate with water or milk. You may like to add a flavoured syrup too for extra sweetness.

7. Serve over ice and enjoy your perfectly brewed cold specialty coffee!

The Benefits of Cold Brew Speciality Coffee

Now that you know how to make your own cold brew coffee, let's explore some of the benefits that set it apart from traditional hot brews.

1. Lower Acidity: One of the most compelling advantages of cold brew coffee is its reduced acidity. The extended brewing time in cold water results in a smoother, less acidic cup than its warmer sibling. This can offer a better choice for individuals with sensitivities to hot coffee.

2. Enhanced Sweetness: Cold brew coffee is renowned for its naturally sweet and mellow flavour profile. The slow extraction process highlights the coffee's inherent sweetness, making it a delightful and refreshing option without the need for added sugar or sweeteners.

3. Chilled Refreshment: It's perfect for warm weather or any time you want a cool and invigorating pick-me-up. Whether you prefer it black, with milk, or as a base for a coffee cocktail, cold brew is a versatile and refreshing beverage.

4. Convenience: Once you've prepared a batch of cold brew concentrate, you can store it in the fridge for up to 7 days, ready to be served at a moment's notice.

To experience a cold brew coffee for yourself, you might want to consider trying out a variety of beans and blends.
