Here at BOMANI Cold Buzz we often get asked the questions, why Cold Brew? And what’s the difference between Cold Brew and Iced coffee? The answer is not only interesting but also integral to why BOMANI has its distinct smooth taste.
Cold brewing coffee is the process of taking coarsely ground coffee beans and steeping them in cold water (typically just above freezing at around 34-40 degrees Fahrenheit) for 12+ hours. Cold brewing coffee helps preserve the natural coffee oils present on the beans and provides for a smoother, less acidic finished product. Since iced coffee is just coffee that is brewed hot and then cooled rapidly, you are essentially just drinking cold, watered down hot coffee. Hot brewing coffee denatures the natural coffee oils that hold a lot of the acidity you experience when drinking.
Our cold brewing process results in some interesting characteristics that are distinctly different than iced coffee and make for BOMANI’s distinct, and delicious taste.
