Benefits of Cold Brew Coffee
Cold brew coffee has become increasingly popular in recent years, and for a good reason - it's delicious! But cold brew isn't just a tasty beverage. It also has some great health benefits.
First of all, cold brew is low in acid. This makes it easier on your stomach and can be especially beneficial for people who suffer from acid reflux or other digestion issues.
Second, cold brew is high in antioxidants. These powerful nutrients help fight off harmful toxins and diseases, keeping your body healthy and strong.
Finally, cold brew coffee has less caffeine than hot coffee. This is because cold brew is made from cold water, which extracts less caffeine than hot water. This makes cold brew ideal for those who want to enjoy coffee but don’t want the jitters associated with a regular cup of joe.
So if you're looking for a coffee alternative that doesn't contain the jitters or energy crash, cold brew is a great option.

- 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon (optional)

Tips For Making Cold Brew Coffee
If you're looking to make cold brew coffee at home, here are a few tips to help you get started:
- Use cold water: Cold brew coffee is made with cold water, which extracts less caffeine than hot water. This makes it a great choice for those who want to enjoy coffee but don’t want the jitters associated with a regular cup of joe.
- Use coarse-ground coffee: Coarse-ground coffee produces a more robust flavor than finely ground coffee. If you don't have coarse-ground coffee, you can always grind it yourself using a mortar and pestle.
- Steep for longer for a stronger flavor: If you want a more intense cold brew coffee flavor, let the mixture steep for longer than 12 hours. The longer it sits, the stronger the flavor will be.
- Serve over ice: One of the best things about cold brew coffee is that it's best served cold! Pour yourself a glass over ice and enjoy.
