Cold Brewing

1 Comment

Here is a new concept.  Cold brewing your coffee!  Sounds too good to be true but Cold Brew Kitchen has perfected artisan roasted coarse ground coffees for you to enjoy the cold brewing way.

Cold Brew Kitchen generously sent me a 12 ounce package of Elite Espresso Blend Coarse Ground 100% Arabica Coffee, a Steeping bag and a coupon for $10.00 off my next order of Cold Brew Kitchen products for the purpose of this review.

I drink a lot of coffee both hot and cold but have always had coffee that I buy in the stores that is full of chicory.  Chicory is what leaves that bitter taste in your mouth.  I don’t care for those coffees but Cold Brew Kitchen Elite Espresso Blend is cold brewed and does not leave a bitter taste in your mouth.  I was really surprised at the rich taste the coffee had.  I always thought coffee had to be brewed hot to get the flavor and did not know you could even cold brew it.

I took some of my regular coffee and tried to brew it cold but it still had that bitter taste and it really didn’t work that well.  Cold brewing reduces the acid from brewing hot and is mellow, smooth and slightly sweet when you use the right blend of coffee.

What is great about cold brewing is you can brew a big batch and take up to 7-10 days to use it.  My coffee maker is rather slow and when I cold brew, I can simply pour a cup and heat it up in the microwave for a minute which is less time than brewing a pot.  Also, if it is a bit too strong you simply add a bit of water.

I especially like iced coffee in the summer time and that is always a hassle because it takes a long time for the coffee to cool down to make a cup to go.  But, when I cold brew, I simply can take it out of the refrigerator and make a cup in a short amount of time and not have to wait until the brewed coffee cools down.

Cold Brew Kitchen coffees are the first line of artisan coarse ground coffees for home brewing and comes in a variety of blends like Elite Espresso coarse ground, Decaffeinated Elite Espresso Coarse Ground and Reserve Blend Coarse Ground.  Cold Brew Kitchen also offers Thrive Farmers Whole Bean Heritage Coffee Wild Rooster Espresso Blend and El Corazon Dark Roast Blend all are medium Roast or Dark Roast.

Cold Brew Kitchen coffees are easy to prepare.  Simply take 7-10 cups of filtered water, add coffee grounds to your taste and steep for 12-24 hours in the refrigerator or countertop.  I have a 6 cup French press that I use. Once steeping process is complete, strain grounds through the steeping bag to remove grounds, then strain through a paper filter.  Then enjoy.  If you don’t want to make that much, take ¾ cup water and add 1 ounce grounds and steep for 12-24 hours and filter the same as above.  You could do this in the morning once you have used one cup, get the next day’s ready and place in the refrigerator for use the next morning.

Checkout Cold Brew Kitchen and then check out Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and Instagram for special offers.  Now that you know you can cold brew your coffee, you will want to try Cold Brew Kitchen brands and let them do the work so you can enjoy your coffee whenever you want it.
