Cold brew coffee isn’t a new concept but it seems like everyone is finally into it, including many coffee shops. Go to any cafe and they most likely have cold brew options for you to choose from. But what is cold brew coffee? It is coffee that has been brewed with cold water for 12 to 24 hours. Since the brewing time is quite long, it has a more full-body taste to it and the best part is that it is less acidic than iced coffee. So, if iced coffee is your jam, you might want to switch to this instead.
Honestly, this is so easy to make at home and you can make it in large batches so we included a quick recipe below. However, if you’re in a rush or are craving some caffeine in the middle of the day, we also found some spots that you can check out, one even delivers.
