Cold brew coffee is also known as Dutch coffee. Unlike iced coffee, where hot water is poured and coffee extract is cooled quickly with ice, water is used to extract coffee. Using this method, compounds such as caffeine are less likely to infuse into the water, allowing you to enjoy rich and refreshing coffee without bitterness. Cold brew coffee is perfect for hot summer!
