How do I pick my cold brew coffee roast?
The lighter the coffee is roasted, the more pronounced the acidity in the coffee, so if you like your cold brew very mellow, go for a darker roasted coffee.
Can cold brew be heated?
Yes! Because cold brew is a brewing method, you can make it as a concentrate and heat it up. Some people tend to think the mellow acidity and thick body tastes better cold, but some people really love how thick the coffee stays after heating it up. It’s reminiscent of cowboy coffee, sure to bring back nostalgic memories from around a campfire.
Can you make cold brew in a French press?
Yup! You can make your cold brew recipe in a French press with relatively easy cleanup. Put your ground coffee and water in the French press and leave in your refrigerator overnight. You don’t need to put the top on, or plunge, because you want the coffee to keep extracting and stay in contact with the water during the entire brewing process. When you’re ready to drink, put the top on and plunge the grounds all the way to the bottom.
