What are the benefits of cold brew coffee?

Cold brew coffee has gained a huge popularity in recent years due to its unique flavour and various qualities. But what is so special about cold brew? A recent UK cold coffee study asked 250 UK consumers about their cold coffee consumption perceptions and habits. The research showed how UK consumers think favourably about cold brew compared to regular iced coffee, with 35 per cent believing it has a smoother taste, 33 per cent believing it offers better coffee flavour, and 22 per cent believing it is less bitter or acidic.

Here are just some of the benefits of our June Blend Cold Brew Coffee Bags:

Reduced Acidity:
Cold brew coffee is less acidic than traditional hot-brewed coffee. This lower acidity can make it more pleasant to drink for some people. It is also then gentler on the stomach, and less likely to cause acid reflux or digestive discomfort for some individuals.

Smooth Flavour:
Cold brewing extracts coffee compounds differently than hot brewing. It tends to produce a smoother, less bitter, and less astringent flavour profile. This can make cold brew coffee more enjoyable to those who find hot coffee too bitter or harsh.

Cold brew coffee can be enjoyed on its own or used as a base for various coffee beverages. You can mix it with milk, cream, or flavoured syrups to create iced coffee drinks, such as iced lattes or mochas, as well as making cocktails and mocktails with it. What to make with cold brew coffee?

Long Shelf Life:
Cold brew coffee can be stored in the refrigerator for an extended period without losing its quality or flavour. This makes it convenient for preparing large batches in advance.

Convenient and Refreshing:
Cold brew is a convenient and refreshing beverage option, especially during hot weather. It's easy to prepare and can be served over ice, making it a perfect summer drink.

Caffeine Content Control:
Since you can control the strength of your cold brew by adjusting the coffee-to-water ratio or brewing time, you have more control over its caffeine content. You can make it stronger or weaker to suit your preferences.

Lower Calories:
Cold brew coffee without added sugar or high-calorie ingredients is a low-calorie beverage. It's a good choice for those looking to reduce their calorie intake while still enjoying coffee. If you prefer it with milk, you will find that you need less milk than with a hot coffee, to obtain your perfect cold brew drink.

Energy Boost:
Cold brew coffee contains caffeine, which can provide an energy boost and help increase alertness and concentration. It often contains more caffeine that hot coffee.

Like hot-brewed coffee, cold brew coffee contains antioxidants, which may have health benefits, such as reducing the risk of certain diseases.

Less Heat Exposure:
Cold brewing doesn't expose the coffee grounds to high temperatures, which can cause the degradation of certain volatile compounds and oils. This can help preserve the natural flavours of the coffee beans.

While cold brew coffee offers these benefits, of course it may not be the preferred choice for everyone. Taste preferences vary, and some of you may still prefer the flavour of hot-brewed coffee. Additionally, the caffeine content can be high in cold brew, so moderation is key for those sensitive to caffeine.

However if you are a lover of cold brew coffee you will not be disappointed with our June Blend Cold Brew Coffee Bags. Making your own cold brew coffee at home couldn't be simpler...

Just place the biodegradable bag in 700ml of water, leave in the fridge for 18-24 hours, remove the bag and that's it! You have incredibly tasty cold coffee. Drink straight from the fridge, or add your milk of choice.
