The Dutch people play an important role in distributing coffee all over the world. In the 17th century coffee plants were shipped in order of the VOC to Batavia, (the capital of Indonesia at that time) to produce more coffee.
After a couple years The Netherlands was the biggest coffee supplier in Europe.
In that time the people in Europe drank their coffee hot. However, the Dutch people in Asia drank cold coffee. In Asia they putted the 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.
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 back to Holland, so you can enjoy the experience!
