Immersion Cold Brew

summer cold brew coffee recipe 

Immersion cold brew is made by soaking the coffee ground into filtered and cool water. The acidic compounds are extracted with the high temperature of the water, so the cold brew is less acidic and bitter than regular coffee.

In order to make a coffee with the Immersion cold brew method, you need a coffee mug, ground coffee, cold water, and a coffee paper filter.

How to make it at home:

  • For 1 dose of ground coffee, put 10 doses of cold water.
  • Mix the ground coffee with water and a spoon. 
  • Put it in the fridge for at least 8 hours. To have it done by morning, prepare it in the evening and keep it in the fridge overnight. 
  • Mix the ground coffee again with water and a spoon. 
  • Filter the liquid.
  • Enjoy your coffee!

    Dutch Coffee

     Historically, Dutch coffee was not created in Holland, but in Yemen by Dutch traders. It then got famous in Korea and Japan. After some time, it spread out to Australia and the United States, but it took a few hundred years to become known in Europe and in Holland.

    This way of brewing is sometimes referred to as the Japanese drip coffee. The Dutch coffee makers are also known as cold drip makers. The specificity of this method is that the water is dripping very slowly over the ground coffee, so it could take up to 18 hours for the coffee to be finished. 

    How to make it at home:

    • Put 25 grams of coffee grounds (light roasted beans) and 250ml of water in the filter
    • Put a paper filter on top of the coffee grounds
    • Pre-wet the top filter
    • Pour water on top of it
    • Wait for 1-2 hours
    • Place it in the fridge when the extraction is over
    • Enjoy your refreshing coffee!

      Before using nitrogen, the food scientist, Nate Ambrust, tried to infuse the coffee with carbon dioxide. Opposite to nitrogen, the CO2 added more acidity to the coffee. Nitro cold brew is coffee infused with nitrogen and extracted through a pressurized valve. The high pressure will give the coffee a smooth cream and a Guinness Beer appearance.

      Stumptown Coffee Roasters has popularized the nitro coffee and until recently, you could only have it in a coffee shop or buy it in a can.

      Now, with the home nitro cold brewer in the market, you could do it easily at home.

      How to make it at home:

      • Fill the filter of the Nitro cold brewer with coffee grounds
      • Put the filter in the machine
      • Add cold water
      • Charge the cap on
      • Put it in the fridge for a few hours or overnight
      • Enjoy your nitro coffee!
