    How to Make the Perfect Cold Brew Coffee

    How to Make the Perfect Cold Brew Coffee

    by Alex Brecher January 17, 2024

    Cold brew coffee is an excellent option for those looking to enjoy a lower-acid alternative to traditional hot brewed coffee. By using a low-acid brand like Alex's Low-Acid Organic Coffee, you can enjoy a delicious cup of cold brew anytime. Here's a guide on how to make the perfect cold brew coffee.

    Why Choose Cold Brew Coffee

    There are several reasons to consider making cold brew coffee:

    • Lower acid content compared to hot brewed coffee, making it easier on the stomach
    • Can be made ahead of time so you always have coffee ready when you need it
    • Control over the entire coffee-making process, from grinding the beans to testing your water's acidity
    • It's a fun and satisfying process

    Tips for the Best Cold Brew Coffee

    Select a high-quality coffee with great flavor. Alex's Low-Acid Organic Coffee offers notes of fruit, chocolate, nuts, and vanilla.

    Maintain a coffee bean to water ratio of 1:4, or 1:3.5 for a stronger brew. This means using 3.5 to 4 cups of water for every cup of coffee beans. Adjust the recipe accordingly for a smaller or larger batch.

    Grind your own beans to a medium-coarse consistency for optimal results.

    Use filtered water and check its acidity, as some tap water may have a higher acid content due to added chemicals.

    Experiment with different bean-to-water ratios and grind consistencies to find your perfect taste.

    Serving and Using Cold Brew Coffee

    Cold brew coffee can be used in a variety of ways, just like hot brewed coffee:

    • Heat and serve black or with your choice of milk or creamer, sweetener, or flavored syrups
    • Pour over ice with milk, flavored syrup, and whipped cream
    • Blend into an energizing shake with protein powder and milk
    • Include in baking, such as mocha brownies, cakes, and frostings
    • Add to meat-based stews and chili for added flavor and depth
    • Make a large batch of cold brew coffee to have enough for both daily consumption and use in recipes.
