What is Cold Brew?
For the answer to this question we have to go back to the time of the Dutch East India Company. In the 17th century the Dutch drank their coffee cold in Asia. They put grinded coffee beans in cold water for 12 to 24 hours. They did this to improve the preservability of the coffee for longtime journeys over the ocean, and to keep their heads cool in the hot Asian sun. This special process of making coffee is known as cold brew coffee or Dutch coffee.
Due to this special way of brewing, the beautiful aromas and caffeine are slowly extracted from the coffee, which among other things gives it a sweeter taste.
Not only in Asia they find this a beautiful way to drink coffee, also countries such as Australia, Japan and the USA are familiar with cold brew coffee.
Slowly this authentic way of making coffee is finding its way to Europe, so you can enjoy the experience!
