Most of us are used to waking up to the smell of coffee every day. In our busy lives, coffee is the one thing that keeps us going throughout the day and of course, with good reasons. A hot cup of Coffee has become an essential part of our everyday life. It is what keeps me (and maybe you too) alert while working throughout the day. However, when it is hot outside – a hot drink might not be too ideal for many of us.
Cold drip coffees are now becoming a part of our everyday culture and can be enjoyed any time of the day. According to a founder of café located in California – “three-quarters of the coffee being served in summers are cold coffees”. Of course, it is not just hot coffee stored for a few hours in the refrigerator. Proper techniques are applied when making the ideal cup of cold drip coffee here at the Kraze Maze Café in Perth, Australia.
An accurate ratio is important when making the cold-drip coffee. I always use the 10 to one ratio with every gram of finely grounded coffee; I use 10 grams of water. Once the mixture is properly mixed, the coffee is kept in the fridge for around 12-15 hours to allow the mixture to steep. After the coffee is steeped, it can be taken out of the fridge and drank right away or decant according to your preference. The drink can be served at fridge temperature or with ice as well as added sugars, milk, and even flavored syrups.
Cold-brewed coffees are 67% less acidic when compared with a traditional hot-brewed cup of Joe. The extracts of cold-drip coffee are more rich and concentrated in flavor. The cold drip coffee can be retained for 2-weeks in the fridge.
Approximately 25 % of our coffee-loving customers claim to have difficulty swallowing the traditional stuff. But cold-drip coffee has come as a blessing for those customers. The cold-drip coffee brewing is one of the best brewing methods out there. It can be frustrating to wait a whole day for a cup of coffee to brew when the regular espresso is usually ready within 2-5 minutes. But for those coffee lovers who are willing to be patient, the cold-drip coffee is one of the best you have ever tried. Come visit us at Kraze Maze Café in Perth, Australia and enjoy your cold-drip coffee.
