As we've learned, the grind size is a crucial factor that can significantly impact the taste of your cold brew coffee. But why is that?
When brewing cold brew coffee, the coffee grounds are steeped in cold water for an extended period. This slow brewing process allows the water to extract the flavors from the coffee grounds gradually. If the grind is too fine, like an espresso grind, the water can extract too much from the coffee, leading to a potentially over-extracted and bitter taste. On the other hand, a coarse grind, which is often recommended for cold brew, prevents over-extraction and results in a smoother, more balanced flavor.
However, the grind size isn't the only factor that affects the taste of your cold brew. The type of coffee beans used and the brewing time can also play a significant role. Want to learn more about the different brewing methods? Check out our official coffee brewing methods FAQ.
But remember, while we can give you guidelines and recommendations, the best grind for cold brew ultimately depends on your personal taste. Some people might prefer a stronger flavor and opt for a finer grind, while others might prefer a lighter, more subtle flavor and choose a coarser grind. It's all about experimenting and finding what works best for you.
