what about simply cold brewing (or warm brewing) with carbonated water, without purging or inverting anything.

does the warm brewing bring out chocolatey flavors/sweetness in coffees with such characteristics?

Adding a warm brew to carbonated water in a narrow necked vessel should outgas some CO2, which will automatically flush the container (assuming you nearly fill it, and don't pour too violently).  Maybe drip brew via a funnel into half a bottle of ice cold carbonated water rather than onto ice?

I should have re-worded my question more appropiately: are medium/dark roasts suitable for the warm brew method?

I've just had a taste of a Single Origin Yirgacheffe Cold Brew and for some reason there is a strong bitter after-taste to this brew that goes away if I mix it with carbonated water and tastes very nice with hot water. Is it usual for a cold brew to be quite bitter?

I forgot to add that I bought this from a Cafe, so perhaps this wasn't a good batch. The ageing process according to their website is 5 days. I will try a second batch and see if I'm getting the same results

Do you think coconut water can be something to try with warm brew?
