We have always seen coffee as a hot drink; but as temperatures rise and there is no craving for a steaming cup of coffee, it is good to experiment with other options.
Before we begin. Cold coffee is not just the one you left over from the coffee maker and put it in the refrigerator for a while. Hot water coming in contact with your ground coffee mix generates flavor chemical reactions that are filtering into the container, then transferred to your cup. We can mention then that this process, in particular, is designed to be enjoyed at the moment. On the contrary, when we let hot coffee cool down, the phenomenon of oxidation will quickly take care of subtracting quality in aroma and taste to your final drink.
Now, it is not bad to refresh yourself with leftover coffee, mixed with ice or in frappé; however there is another way with the promise of better and intense flavor.
Cold coffee is not just coffee that’s cold. Emma Christie
Without complications, a good dose of cold brew coffee is obtained when we simply soak ground coffee in cold water or at room temperature, letting time do its work. It will be enough with a minimum of 12 hours of rest, so the coffee transfers some of its essence, notes and great taste to the water, without affecting drastically its chemistry compared when we use heat.
So while some people mention that drinking hot coffee when the temperature rises is one of the best remedies to mitigate the heat, it never hurts to have different options to enjoy a good coffee regardless of the season.
