Cold brew is an up-and-coming trend in the coffee world that has taken North America by storm, and Australia is no different story. Cold brew is, in itself, quite a simple process, but it creates a smooth and easy going flavor and texture that makes people want to run back for more. In that process, all you do is put some coffee grounds in COLD water, thus the "cold" in cold brew, leave it for anywhere between 18-24 hours, and strain out the coffee grounds. I know, it's so simple, right? It's the little things in life that make it so good, and simple processes are sometimes the best. The components that you need for making cold brew at home is 1) Coarse ground coffee grinds, so it looks like Kosher sea salt, 2) a coffee filter, if you want more oil in your coffee, go with a metal filter, and if you like your coffee less oily, a paper filter works beautifully, 3) a jar with a lid, and 4) some cold water! Who knew that making deliciously smooth coffee at home was so easy? Coffee culture is all about experimenting, so give it a go, change the coffee beans, switch the filters, find a way that YOU love making cold brew, and have fun in the process! For those of you that would like something to start off with, a recipe is below! Happy experimenting.
