Flash-Brewed Iced Coffee vs. Cold Brew
Making flash-brewed iced coffee at home is easy, all you have to do is:
- Add 1-2 additional scoops of coffee to the amount you usually brew OR use a bit less water (no matter your brewing method)
- Pour your freshly brewed, hot coffee over ice
Pro tip: Brew with our Chemex Coffeemaker and add ice to the bottom of your carafe before brewing so your coffee drips directly onto the ice during the brewing process.
How to Make Cold Brew
Cold Brew takes 12-24 hours to steep at room temperature, depending on desired taste and strength. The process creates a strong, dense batch of coffee with a fuller body that lets those more mellow, chocolatey flavors and sweetness shine. A great option for any coffee, but namely medium roasts and darker roasts with chocolatey, nutty profiles.
