When I Can’t Be Bothered With Cold Brew, I Make Japanese Iced Coffee Instead
So instead of making cold brew, I’ve been turning to Japanese-style iced coffee a.k.a. flash-brewed coffee a.k.a. ice brew a.k.a. brewing super strong coffee directly over ice. The hot drip melts the ice, diluting the coffee to the perfect strength while also cooling it down immediately. It’s ready in about 10 minutes (including bringing the water to a boil), and—not to offend all the cold brew fanatics out there—but… I actually like the taste better?
