Posted Sun Jun 12, 2011, 4:29pm Subject: Re: Cold Brew Coffee Experiments (or puttering around)
Great info.......I wish I had the time and/or inclination to do such things too.
Have you read (I think it was) Ken David's recent article on cold brewing ? ......accordingly, you can't get good taste unless you have the right temperature of water to have the necessary reactions and extraction.
Perhaps, what you may have also discovered is a good use for beans that are past their prime, on the verge of staleness. I find that I enjoy using cold brewed coffee in my iced coffee drinks, be it an iced latte or my own version of a blended frappe. I'm not looking for the coffee's origin or varietal character to shine through, only for the satisfying taste of coffee itself mixed in for a nice refreshing and energizing drink.
