Bowery Coffee and Social Affairs

Coffee has been around for ages upon ages upon ages. People all over the world from as far back as the 11th century to now have used coffee for a myriad of reasons. Many used coffee beans and plants for the fact that they believed it to have medicinal properties. As times progressed, coffees reached other parts of the world and were used as a way to bring many together for entertainment and fun. Coffee gained headlines back in the 15th century as a way to drink, indulge, and have fun, paving its way out of homes and into coffee shops where live shows and social activity was bustling. It was a way for people to enjoy the aromatic scents and bliss these coffee beans brought while enjoying a good laugh with friends. It’s no doubt that coffee and social drinking has been a part of history for centuries and continues to be a united pair even in the modern world. From the coffee houses of America to the coffee houses of Italy and more, coffee has most definitely become the unit that has brought many together for good, hearty conversations and quality time with loved ones. Here’s a look at just how this delicious beverage has seemed to make its appearance into the daily social affairs of the modern world.

History

Coffee first made its existence known around the 11th century in Ethiopia. It is said by many that a goat herder by the name of Kaldi took refuge by a tree and used the berries of the tree to feed his goats. He didn’t seem to understand the newfound energy that took place in his goats as they would stay up all night, running about. He reported his discovery to a monastery that made a drink out of the berries and noticed newfound alertness and energy from them as well. It wasn’t long before the news of these magical berries made its way across the world reaching the Arabian peninsula. By the 15th century, Yemen began producing their own coffee beans and soon by the 16th century, many Middle Eastern countries such as Turkey, Syria, and Egypt were developing a reputation for the production and use of these coffee beans. Coffee was a way for people to indulge and enjoy. Soon people from all over the place came to coffee houses to indulge and socialize. They would play chess, watch shows, talk, and exchange information about the world. Soon enough coffee houses gained the name of “School of the Wise” where people could come to learn and exchange news with each other. This introduced a whole new type of socializing for people to partake in, and it wasn’t long before other countries around the world did the same exact thing. Travelers of Europe would come back from the East with stories about these coffee houses and those mysterious black beverages that everyone drank. By the 17th century, coffee and socialization become of equal popularity in Europe. England even set up what they called “penny universities” where people could pay a penny for some good coffee and stimulating conversations. Coffee was soon brought to New York by the 1600’s and soon enough America partook in the production and construction of coffee and coffee houses. It’s no secret that the social aspect of coffee drinking that we experience in modern society is merely a mimic of what people have been doing for centuries upon centuries. It is something that we have historically been doing for an incredible amount of time so it’s only natural that coffee and socializing are merely what is natural and normal for us to participate. We see this every day and here are some examples of that!

Coffee and Studying Together

Have you always thought about why coffee and studying go hand in hand? Coffee exists wherever energy and brain power is needed. That’s why we see coffee shops frequent our university campuses and exist in our libraries and bookstores. Universities, libraries, and bookstores all require knowledge and brain power. You need energy to power through your studying and be alert when it comes to what you are doing. In universities and even high school, you see that studying in coffee shops more than often incorporate a group of people rather than one individual. Why is that? Because studies show that the most efficient studying takes place when groups are exchanging their own knowledge and feedback on subjects and topics. What better way to do that than at a coffee shop where people have been coming together for generations to exchange their information and learn from each other? It seems that coffee and social affairs go well together because that’s how it has always been. It’s what we have seen as little kids and what we have seen as we grown up and it’s natural for us to gravitate to something that we observe everyone else doing. Coffee and socialization are a part of our history and we are only doing what is natural by continuing that history. Hence why in modern society coffee exists in accordance with studying and study groups. It brings us caffeine and enough energy to partake in stimulating conversations while being alert enough to fully reflect on what we hear and learn.

Coffee and Working Together

The power of coffee and collaborative working is very similar to the power of coffee and studying together. The setting probably just switches from a coffee shop to an office. In an office and work environment, lots of ideas and collaboration flow around. Conversation, collaboration, and communication are very vital in a workforce. An office needs alert people to work together to problem solve and come up with good, innovative ideas to carry out. Once again this is where coffee comes into play. It’s pretty normal for workers in an office to have their own coffee on their desk while they are crunching numbers or writing reports. When you come together collaboratively, that doesn’t change. Good energy and aware bodies/minds are needed to fully understand what your coworkers are trying to say and to participate in problem solving etc. Drinking coffee together in an office is very common because most likely everyone in that office has busy lives and sleep is often a luxury they don’t get a lot of. Coffee helps to stimulate individuals and stimulated individuals produce stimulated conversations and effective production. Once again we see here in this setting that the old historic routine of coffee and exchange of information is taking its place like it did back in the days of “penny universities” and the “School of the Wise.” In other words we are once again witnessing an event of socialization and coffee in one setting.

Coffee and Leisure Activities

Let’s face it. Drinking coffee to prepare us for school or work has been so engrained into our routines that we now not only see coffee as something we reach to receive energy, but also now something we reach for when we crave socialization. It seems that coffee has become a way to socialize in our free time and not just a chance at an energy boost. Coffee is something we reach for because it is delicious and it is something to do while we are socializing. I mean talking is fun, but talking and drinking something delicious is ten times more fun isn’t it? Coffee opens the gate way to indulge in pure sweet bliss while getting the time to catch up with friends and family. We are so accustomed to drinking coffee for the purpose of socialization in the school and work environment to the point that we often now feel like leisure socialization, is not complete with our cup of coffee. The versatility of coffee and the many ways it can be served to us make it even more fun. I mean for days when it’s incredibly cold and rainy, we crave something of warmth to keep us warm and cozy while catching up with friends. Why not reach for the cup of coffee to do the trick? And on days where it is blistering hot and we need something cold to cool us down, why not reach for a nice, refreshing iced coffee to do the trick? It seems the adaptability and versatility of coffee makes it the perfect item to have anytime you want to socialize and enjoy yourself. It is so common to see many coffee shops absolutely littered on the weekend with people bustling back and forth in upbeat conversation and coffee cups on their hands. Check out instagram or snapchat and I guarantee you will see at least one coffee cup frequent those social media apps. It’s once again history and tradition playing out. Coffee’s existence in our social lives and affairs has been a regular occurrence for so long that we are completely used to it. In fact, we are so used to it that energetic days of fun and leisure seem almost incomplete without a nice cup of coffee. These examples are just a few to give you the idea of just how normal it is for the world to associate coffee with social affairs and why we tend to do so.

Social Coffee Drinking Around the World

Don’t be mistaken at all! Coffee and social drinking is not just for Americans. The activity of consuming coffee and chatting up are normal and common routines for many countries and people around the world. Check out these quick, short fun facts to see just how common they are!

Coffee Consumption Worldwide

According to statisticians about 2.25 billion cups of coffee are consumed daily worldwide!

Coffee Popularity

Coffee is the most popular drink worldwide, with a staggering 400 billion cups consumed per year worldwide!

How Italians Do it!

Italians are no stranger to coffee and they make sure to incorporate this drink into their everyday routine. A typical Italian diet begins with a morning coffee and pastry with a cappuccino, caffe latte, or latte macchiato. After marching on through their mornings, Italians tend to reach for another cup of coffee as an afternoon energy shot or for a little something to hold their meal down. Espresso is usually enjoyed after dinner. It is usually consumed on one’s own time and not with meals. In Italy it is actually very common for people to frequent bars in search for coffee such as espressos as well as good laughs.

Coffee Vending Machines in Japan

Head on over to Japan and you will see that they actually really enjoy drinking their coffee iced and in cans! Coffee vending machines are very popular in Japan and it seems they become even more popular when they sell iced coffee in a convenient can. Japanese coffee vending machines are filled to the brim with a myriad of coffee brands ranging from all different types and flavors from double shots to vanilla to very milky iced lattes.

Top 5 Coffee Consuming Nations

The top 5 nations known for the most coffee consumption are USA, Russia, Italy, Japan, and France. The USA is the top leading nation of all nations in the world, that consume and produce coffee (quite crazy considering coffee wasn’t even a thing in America until the 1600’s).
Coffee is what!?

Coffee is actually the 2nd most consumed beverage in the entire world after water! (Yes you read that right. The world goes crazy over coffee, almost to the extent of water!)

There is no shadow of doubt that coffee is a craze that has taken the entire world by storm! It’s everywhere you go and has become a way to bring and unite people together. Coffee is surely an amazing beverage to behold for it has the power to bring smiles to faces, wake up bodies and minds, and keep the communication and social life between people as strong and as connected as ever. Who knew that small little coffee beans could be able to do that?

Flavors of Coffee

There is no denying it that after an extremely long and strenuous week that just never seems to end, nothing sounds better than a cup of Joe to start the day right. It just seems almost so mundane and too impossible to start a long and busy work or school day without it. Americans need their coffee. It’s the caffeine we crave to give us energy and we cannot deny it that the aromatic and unique smell of coffee is enough to motivate our tired bodies out of bed and ready to start the day. Americans love their coffee so much that it now has not only become our source of caffeine and energy boost, but rather a drink to have with friends, with family, out on a date, or for a night in where work or school is not rearing its ugly head on us. Coffee has become both equally a drink needed for those work days and a drink desired for on lazy or relaxing days. Drinking coffee is our favorite pastime. With that in mind, it’s of course no secret that with the popularity that coffee has brought, that people all over the world continue to expand their horizons by finding new ways to have coffee. With the increasing popularity of coffee, comes the increasing curiosity to produce new types of coffee, all different and unique as well as new flavors. Coffee has received an almighty “yes” from most of Americans because of its versatility. Each coffee can have unique flavors and be brewed in many different ways that make sure to satisfy Americans and keep them buying more. Today we explore the myriad of ways coffee can be served (and yes that includes the many mouthwatering flavors of coffee! Yum!).

Types of Coffee

I think one of the reasons why coffee is such a hit, not only among Americans, but people from all over the world, comes from the fact that coffee is so versatile. It is not a set drink that tastes the same all over the world wherever you go. Imagine if it was. If that was the case than surely the popularity of coffee and the world’s love for it would have extinguished a long, long time ago. This isn’t the case though and this stems from the fact that there are so many types of coffee and ways to drink your coffee. The way coffee is made, the duration it is made for, and what it is mixed with, are all factors that help produce and bring out different flavors for everyone to enjoy. We begin our spotlight on coffee by listing some of the many, many types of coffee that exists.

Espresso

Ahhh. Let’s kick off our list of types of coffee with the good old fashioned and very simple espresso. Espresso is a type of coffee that is brewed by exerting a strong and small amount of hot, boiling water through finely ground coffee beans. This type of coffee is made with a lot of pressure being put on the boiling water to ensure that both the water and coffee beans mix well and blend nicely. Espresso is characterized as a bitter and rich flavor that should not under any means taste sour or burnt.

Ristretto

https://www.shutterstock.com/image-photo/cup-coffee-over-white-background-129990881?src=3kFl2Gxqi4VRKoaINlzAYg-1-30

Ristretto is another very popular coffee. This type of coffee is basically considered to be a short espresso. It is made in the exact same way an espresso is made, but although the amount of coffee beans are the same, the extraction of the coffee is reduced by a half. In other words, only half of the espresso is extracted and not the full amount. With only half of the espresso being extracted, the ristretto actually carries a different flavor to that of an espresso. The flavor is characterized as being more full bodied and not as bitter as espresso.

Latte

Lattes are another type of coffee of the arrays of coffee to choose from. A latte is basically, in simple terms a coffee drink made of espresso and mixed with milk. It can sometimes be called a caffelatte which means milk coffee. Lattes are very delicious when mixed with other flavors such as vanilla, mocha, caramel, etc. They have creamier and sweeter tastes than plain espresso or ristretto, while still holding a pronounced espresso and coffee flavor.

Cappuccino

Cappuccinos are yet another of the many wonderful types of coffee to try. They are Italian coffee drinks that have double the amount of espresso and are mixed with steamed milk that is foamed. Cappuccinos can be changed in variation depending on the place the cappuccino is bought in and can have the espresso mixed with creamer instead of milk. Some places tend to foam cappuccinos with very cool art designs that include hearts, smiley faces, or leaves along with a cinnamon or chocolate powder topping. A cappuccino can have a creamy and rich flavor that is accompanied by a very bold coffee flavor. They aren’t as sweet as the lattes due to the double espresso, but they nonetheless do pack a good caffeine punch along with a creamier and lighter flavor when compared to espressos and ristrettos.

Flavors

To make coffees even more versatile (and pull in interest for people of all different preferences and tastes), coffee can not only vary by how they are made, but also by the flavors that can be added to it. Flavored coffees are known to add more diversity to the flavors that each type of coffee can bring and make them taste even yummier to drink. Flavored coffee can also serve as a nice reward or in place of a dessert as they can curb those sugar cravings! Here are some extremely popular coffee flavors that people all over the world enjoy!

Vanilla

Vanilla coffee is by far one of the most common coffee flavors out there and it is no surprise too. Coffee and vanilla just seem to be made for each other and other people know that. Coffee and vanilla can be combined in many different ways! For a more bitter or strong vanilla flavor, one could put a couple drops of vanilla extract into their coffee and mix with milk. For a more sweeter vanilla taste that is still strong, try putting in a good splash of vanilla creamer into your morning coffee. Iced or hot, the flavor will still be life changing! Check out this great vanilla coffee recipe from Taste of Home!

Ingredients

1/3 cup coffee(ground)
2 ½ cups milk (choose any milk you want! Soy, almond, or whole, it’s up to you!)
2 tbsps instant vanilla pudding (the mix)
¼ cup sugar
1 cup water

Directions

Place ground coffee in coffee filter and brew to your desire with water!
Combine sugar and vanilla mix in small bowl
Combine the dry mix into the coffee and add milk
Keep chill until ready to serve and voila!

Mocha

For all my chocolate lovers this one is for you! Mocha is a great way to get that coffee you crave along with that insanely creamy and sweet taste of chocolate that you love so much. It’s so easy to make and there are so many versatile ways to incorporate your chocolate! You can buy finely ground mocha coffee from the store if you want. If you don’t have any mocha coffee than that’s fine! Throw in any chocolate you got from that old cocoa mix in your cabinet to those swiss hot chocolate mixes in your pantry. You can even try putting pieces of actual chocolate into your coffee to melt and enjoy it that way. There are so many fun ways to make mocha and any technique used will still yield the same delicious results. Need any help with how to get started? Check out this very yummy mocha recipe from bean box!

Ingredients

1 cup of brewed coffee
4 tbsps of a chocolate bar or cocoa powder(about ¼ cup)
½ cup of cream or milk (again any milk of your choosing!)

Directions

Brew your coffee to your desire!
Melt your chocolate into hot milk or with hot cream.
Stir the hot chocolate into your coffee!
Garnish and have fun! Put some whipped cream, mocha or chocolate shavings, cocoa powder or chocolate syrup for some serious chocolate fun!

Caramel

Not going to lie, I was seriously excited about this one for the sole reason that I am a huge caramel fan! Caramel with its delicious sweet and rich flavor is so delicious by itself and on desserts. Imagine that same sweet and candy like flavor with some strong brewed coffee and you can see why I am absolutely obsessed. Caramel has the strong power to make your coffee taste like a candy drink made from heaven while still holding onto that aromatic coffee bean flavor. It’s seriously sweet and oh so addicting. Throw in some soft chewy caramel candies into your hot coffee and let the flavors drift you into bliss. Add some caramel sauce or creamer from your local supermarket or buy finely ground coffee with the caramel flavor already in there. Whichever way you decide to go with it you won’t regret it! Try out this fun iced caramel flavored coffee recipe from Annacia (and yes I said iced because summer is here and iced coffee never sounded better than it does right now!).

Ingredients

1 ½ cup strong brewed coffee
¼ cup caramel sauce
2-3 tbsps sugar (or more or less depending on your taste preferences)
Ice cubes (because you can’t have iced coffee without ice!)
1 ½ cup milk of your choice (or creamer if you prefer)
Some fun garnishes such as more caramel sauce, cinnamon, whipped cream and more!

Directions

Brew your coffee to your desire.
Mix the hot coffee with the sugar and caramel immediately.
Pour in a cup with ice cubes and follow up with milk or creamer.
Enjoy adding your garnishes and take lots of cute instagram pics.

Hazelnut

Calling all nut gals! If you are a fan of nuts ranging from peanut butter, praline, walnuts, almonds, cashews and love the good ole’ hazelnut, than you will love this! Strong brewed coffee mixed with the luscious, nutty, and velvety sweet taste of hazelnuts makes this a good flavored coffee that you don’t want to miss out on. You can be old fashion and grind your coffee and nuts together (for days where you seriously feel like being an overachiever) or you can be a little lazy and go for store bought coffee grinds with hazelnut flavoring in them (or buy the creamer, that’s good too!). Don’t have any hazelnut creamer or coffee? Hazelnut syrup will work just fine. Any way you choose to go, you will still end up with a seriously nutty and strong coffee! Try making this hazelnut iced coffee!

Ingredients

1 ½ tsp hazelnut syrup
4 tbsps cold milk or creamer of your choice
1 cup of strongly brewed coffee
1 ½ cups of ice
Garnish of your liking!

Directions

Brew coffee beans to your desire!
Add hazelnut syrup!
Add milk and creamer of choice!
Add ice!
Garnish and enjoy! (Yeah I know it’s that easy!)

From vanilla to hazelnut or from espresso to cappuccino, it is safe to say that your coffee will never bore you! Switch up your coffee routines and get adventurous! Try new coffee beans, check out fun espresso art on instagram, post pictures of your beautiful coffee creations, and check out new coffee flavors that you’ve never tried before. Coffee is never boring when you switch it up and play around. It’s versatile and delicious. Make life interesting and start your day right with a cup of Joe or a nice iced coffee tailored to your every taste and preference, and you will realize that early work mornings were never this good to you.

What Is Cold Brew Coffee?

Cold brew coffee is the new coffee blend that has caught the mainstream and accepted widely. It is not the same as cold ice tea.

The coffee is brewed with room temperature (approx. 25 C). It could also be brewed with cold water for a period of 12-24 hours. The timing and the temperature is largely dependent on the recipe you use in making the cold brewed coffee. It is a bit mellower and tastes better since it is made with cold water. The acidity level of this coffee has been drastically reduced when you compare it to iced coffee.

Once the coffee is steeped, the end result is a coffee with a strong cold brew coffee concentrate and you then proceed to cut it with water. The cutting should be done around 50:50.

There are other types of cold brew coffee like New Orleans-style cold brew, made with chicory for added spice but the best cold brew coffee is the bowery coffee.

Types Of Bowery Coffee.

Dirty chai coffee is midway between a chai tea latte and a normal latte. Brewed in cold water though, the specifications and taste is different from other normal dirty chai. This coffee is made from espresso mixed with the chai tea.

The coffee is brewed to give you just the right amount of sweet taste. Chai latte has always been delicious but not in this sense. Our dirty chai latte gives you the feeling in a more desert way. It is the best of both worlds.

It started when I got hooked on dirty chai latte when a friend recommended it to me few summers ago. I had nothing to order after that except dirty chai latte.

Bowery Coffee: The Perfect Daily Grind.

You can do it yourself…

During the summer months, your morning or afternoon coffee may seem to make you even hotter. A great option for drinking coffee when it’s warm outside is to prepare iced coffee. The perfect cup of iced coffee cannot be made with your regular coffee maker. Coffee makers that produce hot liquid will quickly melt your ice and cause your coffee or coffee beverage to get watered down. So, put your brewer to rest over the summer and learn to prepare cold brewed coffee without a coffee maker.

The materials needed to cold brew coffee are simple and inexpensive. The most important ingredient, obviously, is your coffee grounds. You can buy specialized grounds that are made to be cold brewed, or you can just get your regular favorite brand. It is best if you try to get coffee grounds that have a coarse grind. Some other items that you will need include two large non-reactive bowls or containers, a strainer, a coffee filter or cheesecloth, plastic wrap, and plenty of water.

Begin making your iced coffee by mixing together your coffee grounds and water in the large bowl or container. The ratio of grounds to water is flexible, but a good place to start is to add ten cups of water for each pound of coffee you are using. Once all the grounds are wet, cover the bowl with plastic wrap or its lid and let the mixture sit for twelve hours or longer. When your grounds are finished steeping, you should first filter the mix through a strainer to remove the larger grounds. Filter the mixture through the strainer and into your clean bowl or container. Place the filtered coffee grounds in the trash, and then repeat the process. For smoother coffee, you will want to place your filter or cheesecloth on the strainer during this second round of filtering.

Once you have prepared your cold brew coffee, you can store the coffee in your refrigerator for several weeks. Use an airtight container to hold your drink to keep it tasting fresh. When you are ready to prepare your cup of Joe, simply add ice to a cup and pour the cold coffee over the ice. You can mix in milk, cream, half-and-half, or any sweetener that you prefer.

Even though brewing this cold brewed beverage takes a significant amount of time, it’s a great option for daily use since you can make a large batch at a time. Once it’s brewed, making iced coffee is quicker and simpler than using your coffee maker each day.

What Is Cold Brew Coffee?

Cold brew coffee is the new coffee blend that has caught the mainstream and accepted widely. It is not the same as cold ice tea.

The coffee is brewed with room temperature (approx. 25 C). It could also be brewed with cold water for a period of 12-24 hours. The timing and the temperature are largely dependent on the recipe you use in making the cold brewed coffee. It is a bit mellower and tastes better since it is made with cold water. The acidity level of this coffee has been drastically reduced when you compare it to iced coffee.

Once the coffee is steeped, the end result is a coffee with a strong cold brew coffee concentrate and you then proceed to cut it with water. The cutting should be done around 50:50.

There are differences between cold brew coffee and ice coffee. The main difference lies in the production method.

There are many burr grinders and it is left for you to choose which one best suits you.

There are fine coffee makers in the market and you can have a pick from one of them. Italian coffee makers are the most efficient though with Bialetti one of them. Get a coffee maker that has been around for decades and has been given several unique reviews.

The benefits of grinding your own coffee are numerous. You will, however, agree with me that you need to make it top quality before you can brew a tasty coffee to make it perfect for you.

How to brew bowery cold coffee.

Cold brewing takes more time because it can only dissolve through certain elements of coffee grounds. About 90% of its flavor elements, as well as its usual caffeine content, would go through with this. Then, about 15% of its acids and oils will follow. Hence, this can change your coffee’s taste but it will only concentrate on the most volatile flavor elements, making superbly flavored coffee.

Although it will be twice the strength, it will still possess lesser acidity and bite. So, for those who are into the “bite & acid” of coffee, cold brewing is not recommended. In preparing cold brew, coffee beans must be hot-brewed first. Here’s a basic procedure of making cold brew.

Ingredients (Good for 2 to 3 glasses):

  • Tall glass or Mason jar w/ lid for brewing
  • Container (bottle, pitcher, small carafe or tall jar w/ lid) for the last brew that will be placed inside the fridge.
  • Second glass for the “steeped” coffee mixture
  • Kitchen Strainer (stainless steel) or cheesecloth

Directions:

  1. Measure about ¼ up to 1/3 cup of good coffee into your brewing glass.
  2. Proceed to add ½ cup of water (room temperature, filtered or bottled water).
  3. You then stir the mixture. Make sure it is evenly stirred and free from lumps. The lumps might affect the quality of your coffee.
  4. In order to keep your mixture clean, put a lid on top of your container. You can also use the canister type of container.
  5. Allow it to sit for 6 to 12 hours.
  6. After this, place the mixture in the strainer, then, into the 2nd container.
  7. Clean-up your 1st glass and have all the grounds inside rinsed out.
  8. Pour the coffee from the 2nd glass back into the 1st glass, using the cheesecloth or finer mesh. This will remove all the fine grinds, making it pure.
  9. Pour your final mixture into the storage container.
  10. Place this inside the fridge.

Although you cannot be strictly precise in measurements, you will be able to make the perfect tasting coffee if you keep the water to the coffee ratio at 4:1. The mixture can be approximately 2 to 3 times the strength. You can dilute it with equal amounts of water. Then serve with some ice. If your mixture is too strong, just add some water to dilute. Serve with sugar and cream.

Why is Cold Brew So “Hot”?

With food and beverage trends on the rise (think: gluten free, chia seeds, kombucha, kale, etc.) it may be difficult to track their rhyme and reason. Does the current political climate dictate consumers’ desire for turmeric flavored teas? Who knows. And though trends may be limited to urban, “hip” areas (Bowery, Southern California, etc.), they do ignite and engulf these areas with force.

Yes, you can still count on Bob’s Diner on Main St. in Arkansas to serve pots of “coffee” with refills. So what is driving consumers to the supermarket to buy 8oz, 12oz, 16oz aluminum cans, glass bottles, cartons, pop-top containers, and jugs of cold brew coffee?

For one, it’s the process; cold brew coffee is held to a higher standard in coffee-lovers’ eyes because it is produced in a complex, smooth, and literally “cool” way.

As Merlin Jobst notes in How to Make Cold Brew Coffee:

“Cold-brewed coffee is ground coffee steeped in cold water and strained, and iced coffee is generally brewed hot and poured over ice…The difference in flavor between the two methods is immense. Iced coffee is a very fast process, but has to be brewed to be stronger than standard coffee to make up for the severe dilution caused by the ice. This method tends to make for a more bitter drink, because of the intense and rapid extraction of flavor from the beans by the hot water. Cold brew, on the other hand, takes a formidable 18—24 hours. However, the far gentler infusion process produces a drink of lower acidity, which is why cold brew coffee is naturally sweeter. It can also be served over ice without such extreme dilution because it’s already cold. For these reasons, cold brewing is generally regarded as the better method for producing cold coffee. There are a couple of home-methods for this, and they are all variants of a basic formula: cold water, coarse coffee grounds, and an overnight brew. Changing a variable will produce slightly different results, from a longer brew or stronger coffee-to-water ratio producing a stronger cup, and a finer grind producing a cloudier drink.”

And what about quality? Cold brew coffee companies in California, Illinois, New York, etc. use the very best Brazilian coffee beans, farm raised, certified fair trade, etc.
As The Washington Post describes:

“Kevin Kickham, a 24-year-old development specialist at a charter school in St. Louis, started drinking cold-brew about six months ago, after a barista friend insisted he try it. He became a convert because “the flavor’s a lot more full. I definitely like that it’s less acidic,” he said. Now, it’s become a twice-a-week habit. Still, he thinks flavor isn’t the only reason he and his peers have a preference for the drink. It’s also that cold-brew seems a little more special. “There’s an air of pretentiousness when you say ‘cold-brew,” said Kickham. “I think it has a lot to do with how it’s marketed.” That marketing tends to be organic, relying on its cool factor and social media. Cold-brew looks great on Instagram.

In a market that appears saturated at the shelf level, new brands are always on the rise; choosing to spend their precious marketing dollars this year on cold brew coffee campaigns.

Who is the target consumer? In a word, Millennials. The latest cold brew coffee brands, the latest cold brew coffee flavors (Tahitian vanilla, toasted caramel, cinnamon agave) are very much Millennial. Born in California and bred on Instagram, Millennials are mostly all on the same page (literally) with trends. They “follow” each other. They all take the same series of photo – brunch, Coachella, French bulldog, peonies, and yes, cold brew coffee.

How to keep the trend alive? Introduce new brands, new flavors, even new milks and new variations (tea related, for example). Chai cold brew is a great example, made-smooth with almond milk or subtle brown sugar flavors.

As for all those certifications, “slow steeped, Kosher, single origin, direct trade, non-GMO” they don’t all have it. Only the most premium brands like Bowery Cold Brew California Coffee Company can achieve and earn these labels.
Cold-brew.org, very much the expert, explains:

“Shade growing also promotes natural insect and pest control. That’s important, because cold-brew standards dictate the use of non-GMO, organically grown coffee raised without toxic pesticides, reducing potential risks for growers, laborers and consumers alike. How can you, the consumer, know if the cold-brew coffee products you buy are produced under these conditions? One shortcut is to look for products made with Fair Trade coffee. That ensures that the coffee was grown sustainably and that the grower received a fair price for their beans. The two main species of coffee beans are Arabica and Robusta. Without exception, the finest cold-brew coffee products will use 100% Arabica beans. Though coffee Arabica is more difficult to grow and its plants produce lower yields, the more delicate and nuanced flavor profiles and lower acidity of Arabica beans yield a vastly superior final product. After harvest, there are two main ways of processing coffee beans before they are roasted.”

What about caffeine? Do we want more or less? Do we need caffeine to keep going past that 2:30pm time on a slow Wednesday afternoon? One of the best parts about cold brew coffee is you can grab a fine glass bottle from the fridge and go. No waiting around the company coffee pot for your brew to steep, and quite frankly that’s fantastic.

Additionally, cold brew coffee seems to be quite an American trend, as Europeans are still sipping their cafes au lait and cappuccinos in cafes across the pond. Cafés in America represent brands you can almost always buy at any supermarket or convenience store – and if you are really in the know, you can find them at all the major trade shows: Sweets & Snacks Expo, Expo West, California Grocers Association, Western Associated of Food Chains, IDDBA, and more.

They are delicious, fantastic, and smooth and sweet. They are now easy to find, and they are on the rise. Drink cold brew coffee for a smoother kick, if you need a ready-to-drink option in delicious flavors like cacao, cold brew is a great, fantastic choice. And talk about choices, there are many. Check out this article below with more info on the options: “Its time to trade in that hot cup of morning office sludge for a refreshing cold brew. Different than iced coffee, which is just your average hot coffee diluted with ice, cold-brew coffee is made without any added heat, resulting in a much bolder flavor, less acidity, and … hallelujah! … a bigger caffeine kick.
