Cold Brew coffee is rich in aromatic properties and can be stored for more than a day.
Made using a cold extraction system that requires at least 7 or 8 hours of processing, the device used to make this preparation is known as a Toddy and it is made up of 3 sections: an upper glass jar where the cold water is placed, a central container for ground coffee and a lower carafe to collect the final product.
The coffee is mixed with water and percolates at a rate of about 8 drops every 10 seconds.
The water passes through the coffee grounds, capturing its characteristics, and coming out coloured and rich in aromas and substances. The advantage of this drink is its shelf life which allows you to prepare it in larger quantities; in fact, a coffee extracted with the cold brew method can be kept for up to 2 to 3 days in the refrigerator.
Although cold brew has become very popular in the United States recently, Japan has a long history with cold brew and has been enjoying it since the 1600s.
During that period, Dutch merchants began introducing it to the rest of the world; which is why now it is also known as Dutch Coffee or Kyoto Coffee.
Just like every star, Cold Brew Coffee also has secrets of its own.
