Make Cold Brew At Home With The Best Coffee Beans
Move over, sugary iced coffee. Cold brew is the new chilled caffeinated drink taking coffee lovers by storm. Cold brew coffee has been gaining in popularity at cafes over the past 12 months, and the summer heat has only served to accelerate this popularity.
A great cold brew made with the best coffee beans can be described as smooth and lush, with more complexity than espresso as a result of the longer extraction. Cold-brew shouldn’t be confused with an iced latte or iced long black, which are both espresso-based coffees poured over ice. It also differs from a cold drip, which uses a coiled filter apparatus to drip water through coffee grounds.
The Grand View Research consulting firm estimated the value of the global ready-to-drink cold brew market at $US523 million ($682 million) back in 2020 and predicts this to rise to $US1.6 billion by 2025.
Companies of all sizes are driving this significant growth, from small and mid-sized roasters such as Inglewood Coffee Roasters in Melbourne to global companies, including Starbucks.
Try Cold Brew At Home
Fortunately, cold brew is one of the easiest ways to make great coffee at home. Simply add ground coffee to a container with cold water and leave it in the fridge overnight. In the morning, strain the liquid in the container through a muslin cloth or filter. The result is a smooth, refreshing, and highly-caffeinated, cafe-style cold brew ready to enjoy.
The expert team at Inglewood Coffee Roasters in Melbourne recommends a ratio of around one part of coffee to 15 parts water for a ready-to-drink cold brew. If you prefer a strong long black, or if you intend to add milk, you’ll likely want to use less liquid. Cold-brew also lends itself well to cocktails, milkshakes, and slushies’, if you fancy a little experimentation.
Specialized cold brew equipment is also available to make the process even easier, but the basic method remains the same. For example, the Inglewood Cold Brew Kit comes with a 500g bag of the Single Origin Espresso, which means you can enjoy some of the best coffee beans that the roaster has to offer in the comfort of your own home.
