I have noticed cold-brewed iced coffee all over Atlanta (and NYC) so I decided to try it earlier today at Star Provisions. Cold- brewed coffee is different than regular iced coffee where you essentially make a strong batch of regular hot coffee and dilute it using ice. Cold brewed is a much longer process which requires the coarse ground coffee to seep in cold or room temperature water for at least 12 hours.
At Star Provisions, they let their coffee brew for 24 hours which creates a coffee concentrate which they then dilute to your taste with cold water. The best part of their cold-brewed coffee? They make a simple syrup using their coffee concentrate. Probably one of the coolest ideas ever in coffee! It was definitely one of the best coffees I’ve ever had!
