I sure love coffee. I actually look forward to the morning when I’m heading to bed, because I know that there will be a nice cup of coffee waiting for me in my office when I get there. One of my favorite coffee recipes is this Vietnamese Cold Brew Coffee.

What makes cold brew coffee different?
Coffee made using the cold brew method has a smoother, naturally sweeter result that tastes less acidic than traditional hot-brewed coffee. The reason for this is the solubility of the organic acids inherit in coffee are extracted at higher brewing temperatures. The organic acids (like citric, malic, formic, quinic and acetic) are a signature aspect of hot-brewed coffee flavor and aroma yet only dissolve in hot water.

The cold brew method doesn’t extract the bright flavors associated with these acids but extracts the rich chocolate and caramel notes that result in the rich and smooth beverage with a difference that you can taste.

When enjoying cold brew prepared hot equals a less bitter, less acidic, and overall naturally sweeter and a smoother cup of hot coffee!

What is the difference between cold brew and iced coffee?
While commonly confused with iced coffee, cold brew coffee refers to how it’s brewed rather than how it’s served. Cold brew coffee is slowly steeped in cold water using coarsely ground coffee beans. As you know, a pot of traditional hot coffee brews in just a few minutes. But making cold brew takes hours. Like 12 hours or more in order to achieve the signature result.

Why choose Java House ® Dual-Use Liquid Coffee Pods?
I really love that each of their liquid coffee pod features JAVA HOUSE® delicious cold brew coffee in concentrate form. That means you can open, pour over ice, add 8 ounces of water and enjoy.

But better yet, I can pop the liquid pod into my single serve brewer & enjoy a smoother cup of cold brew hot. THEN, for those of you who don’t own a single-serve coffee brewer, you can easily mix the pod with 8 ounces of hot water from a tea kettle!

Most importantly to me Java House contains no preservatives, additives, or coffee derivatives. Just great tasting cold brew whenever I want it in a convenient pod.
