I’m a die-hard coffee fan and wouldn’t know how to start my day without a cup or two. I rely on my pod coffeemaker to get my cup of coffee to me pronto. When I was first asked to do a recipe for Java House with their new cold brew coffee pods, I didn’t even have a clue what cold brew coffee was.  And how can cold brew coffee be served hot? So, I don’t know about you, but I needed an explanation on just what made cold brew, well, cold brew.

Just what is Cold Brew Coffee?

The name cold brew coffee is often mistaken for iced coffee, however, the name is derived from how it’s brewed rather than how it’s served. To make cold brew coffee, coarsely ground beans are steeped in water for 12 hours or more to achieve the desired result. 

What’s that result? A smoother, naturally sweeter coffee with less acidic taste than traditional brewed coffees. The cold brew method extracts the rich chocolate and caramel notes of the beans rather than the flavors associated with the acids of a roasted coffee. It’s a difference that I could distinguish on the first sip.

I found out just recently when speaking to my son, that both he and his wife now drink cold brew every morning. It’s more convenient, they love the smoother, less acidic taste, and they can easily make it hot or cold. And, after trying the new cold brew pods myself, I must agree. The liquid concentrate pods can be poured over ice and enjoyed with my homemade Peppermint Patty Creamer (see recipe below), as a warm cup of coffee with the addition of hot water or in various cocktails such as this Peppermint Patty Cold Brew Coffee Cocktail. 

Java House Cold Brew flavors

I love not having to store a bottle of cold brew in the refrigerator but, instead, reach for a pod and make it immediately in my coffee maker. You can even choose from a variety of flavors offered by Java House so each person gets to make their favorite. Flavors range from the dark roast Sumatran to a medium roast Colombian to the light roast Ethiopian. They even have a medium roast decaf version. Don’t have a single-serve coffeemaker? No worries, just mix the liquid pod with 8-ounces of hot or cold water and go. See? Easy!

So why choose Cold Brew?

Cold Brew offers a smoother cup of coffee, that is less bitter, less acidic and naturally sweeter than your standard coffee. The Java House pods have no preservatives or coffee derivatives, just great tasting coffee. And they are so much easier than trying to make cold brew at home.
