Summer is coming up, and more of us will be drinking our coffee on ice. Traditional iced coffee is hot coffee or espresso which is allowed to cool then served over ice, but cold brew coffee removes the heated aspect all together and is brewed by steeping coffee in cold water. It’s a tried and true method that is coming back in style. Cold-brew fans say that because coffee grounds aren’t exposed to hot water, the resulting coffee is more flavorful and less bitter than hot coffee. It’s a cinch to make yourself, as well. Here are the steps to...
