Breaking down Cold Brew Coffee

What Is Cold Brew Coffee Concentrate?

Cold brew coffee concentrate is a concentrated form of cold brew coffee that's made by steeping coffee grounds in cold water for an extended period of time. The resulting liquid is then filtered to remove the grounds, leaving behind a highly concentrated coffee solution.

The process of making cold brew coffee concentrate differs from traditional cold brew in that it uses a higher ratio of coffee grounds to water. While traditional cold brew typically uses a ratio of 1:4 coffee to water, cold brew coffee concentrate often uses a ratio of 1:2 or even 1:1.

The higher coffee-to-water ratio results in a more concentrated flavor and higher caffeine content. As a result, cold brew coffee concentrate is often used as a base for other coffee drinks or diluted with water to create a classic cold brew.

Cold brew coffee concentrate has several benefits over traditional cold brew. One major advantage is its long shelf life - because the coffee is so concentrated, it can be stored in the refrigerator for up to two weeks (3 months for Mr Bean Cold Brew Coffee) without losing flavour or quality. This makes it a convenient option for busy coffee lovers who want to have cold brew on hand without having to make a fresh batch every day.

Additionally, because it's so concentrated, you can use less of it to achieve the same level of coffee flavor. This means you can save money in the long run by using less coffee and still getting a strong, flavorful drink.

Overall, cold brew coffee concentrate is a unique and versatile coffee product that's worth exploring if you're a fan of cold brew or looking for a new way to enjoy your coffee.
