And cold brew is our favorite chemical reaction.
A lot of science goes into making coffee. Cold brew is unique because the coffee beans are brewed in cool filtered water; there is no heat involved. This gives the coffee a refreshing and lighter form, especially compared to iced latte. Some of Jeddah’s cafes have perfected this art.
Making cold brew is a highly scientific process, especially with specialty coffee beans. The temperature and pressure can make a huge difference to the taste and potency of the coffee. Brew 92 does it really well!
