Brewing up a cold cup of joe

Boca Raton, Fla. – Cold brew is shorthand in the coffee world for the cold method of brewing coffee and this method has many attributes and one major detraction.

Cold brewed coffee creates a smooth, non-bitter coffee that is ideal for summertime iced coffee treats. It is less acidic, which people find easier on the stomach and is said to have less caffeine than a hot cup of joe.

To make, coffee is mixed in water and left alone for 12 hours or more in a mason jar, and then strained. Straining is the tricky part – it can be so messy that only true fans will want to do this regularly.

The new Cold Brew Glass Carafe Brewing System from Primula takes care of the mess. The carafe makes 16 cups of prepared iced coffee that will last up to 14 days when stored in the fridge. The glass carafe is made of borosilicate and can withstand extreme temperatures without risk of cracking.

It retails for a suggested $39.99.
