What Are the Benefits of Cold Brew Coffee?
We recently wrote about a new craze in the coffee world, bottled cold brew coffee. Today we ask, what are the benefits of cold brew coffee? The Washington Post wonders the same and poses the question, why you should be drinking more cold-brew coffee.
[T]he cold-brew process swaps piping hot water for room-temperature water, and requires grounds to steep for up to 24 hours.
What results is a batch of coffee – which can be served iced or heated – that’s much less bitter than coffee brewed the traditional way. According to a study conducted by Intertek in 2005, cold-brewed coffee contains about 65 percent less acidity than coffee brewed in hot water, making it a viable alternative for sensitive stomachs.
“When you brew with cold water over a longer period of time, you extract the fruity and chocolaty notes as well as the caffeine, but you don’t extract the bitter notes,” says Terry Darcy, co-founder of Confluence Coffee Co., a D.C.-based line of cold-brew coffees.
If you are prone to gastritis or esophageal reflux it is probably a good idea to try the benefits of cold brew coffee. Another issue is the antioxidants in coffee. Are they preserved or lost when you cold brew coffee.
