So first, let's start with: What is Cold Brew?
Cold brew is a coffee brewing method that involves steeping coffee grounds in cold water for an extended period, usually between 12 and 24 hours. The result is a smooth, rich, and less acidic coffee concentrate that can be diluted with water or milk and served over ice. And at Compass, we take that brewed Cold Brew and infuse it with Nitrogen to give you that smooth taste that you love.
Why is Cold Brew Better Than Traditional Iced Coffee?
While iced coffee is a popular beverage choice, it can often be too acidic and bitter for some coffee lovers. This is where cold brew comes in. Because of how cold brew is brewed, it doesn't extract as much acidity and bitterness from the coffee beans. This results in a smoother and less acidic taste, making it a more enjoyable drink for many people.
