Cold Brew and Cold Drip Coffee Maker

Cold brew coffee makers and cold drip coffee makers are becoming a growing segment in our range of portable coffee makers as Cold Brew Coffee in Australia become a fashionable drink. We get asked constantly what is cold drip coffee or cold brew coffee and how to make cold brew coffee or how to make cold coffee at home. So here we go.

What is Cold Brew? It is coffee brewed using a cold coffee maker with cold water over the course of several hours. This method methods extract different components from the beans lowering the acidity and bitterness while unmasking the smooth, naturally sweet, complex origin flavours of your favourite coffee.

And now how to make cold brew coffee? This process requires a coarse-ground coffee beans that are soaked in water for a prolonged period of time, usually 12 hours or more. Brewers include the BodyBrew, Bruer, Toddy and Hario. The water is normally kept at room temperature, but chilled water can also be used. The grounds must be filtered out of the water after they have been steeped using a paper coffee filter, a fine metal sieve. The resulting coffee naturally seems sweeter due to its lower acidity and the result is a coffee concentrate that is often diluted with water or milk, and can be served hot, over ice, or blended with ice and other ingredients such as chocolate.

What is Cold Drip? Is very similar to cold brew, however instead of having the coffee submerged in water for 12-24 hours, water is passed through the coffee slowly usually in a period of 3-5 hours, with the control of a tap to control the flow rate. This generally requires slightly more expensive water drip coffee makers like the Hario, Kalita, Tiamo or Yama range of Cold Drip Towers. These range in size from home units to commercial drip coffee makers. Flavor-wise, drip cold brew coffee tends to be a bit lighter and brighter than immersion cold brew coffee.

The rise in polarity of cold coffee can be attributed to our hot summers and new found love for everything coffee, especially iced coffee. Once people realise just how easy it is, cold brew becomes part of their daily routine. This is in part as with cold brew kit it is easy to brew and store!
