Your Coffee Preferences Quiz
Let's find out more about your coffee preferences and how well you know about brewing coffee at home.
Thanks for taking our Your Coffee Preferences Quiz! We hope it's been a fun and informative journey into the world of cold brew coffee. But don't stop here! There's so much more to learn and explore in the realm of home brewing.
Perhaps you're wondering why we recommend starting with whole coffee beans for making cold brew coffee? It's because whole beans retain their flavor much longer than pre-ground coffee. And when it comes to cold brew, it's all about extracting those rich, deep flavors over a long period of time.
And what about the coarse grind we suggested? A coarse grind is ideal for cold brew because it slows down the extraction process, allowing for a smoother, less acidic brew. If you're interested in learning more about the different types of grinds and how they affect your coffee, check out our coffee types guide.
Now, let's talk about the brewing ratio. The basic cold brew coffee ratio is one part coffee grounds to four parts water. This might seem like a lot of coffee, but remember, cold brew is a concentrate. You can always dilute it to your liking when it's ready to serve. Need more guidance on brewing ratios? Our brewing methods guide can help!
Finally, we recommend letting the coffee and water mixture sit at room temperature for 12 to 24 hours. This long brewing time is what gives cold brew its unique, smooth taste. If you're curious about why this is and want to delve deeper into the science of coffee brewing, our preferred brewing methods guide is a great resource.
Remember, the beauty of making your own cold brew coffee at home is that you can experiment and tweak the process until you find what works best for you. Happy brewing!
