Don Francisco's Coffee Cold Brew

Do you patiently wait for warmer weather before you enjoy that first glass of cold coffee? Or maybe you’re a coffee enthusiast who drinks cold coffee no matter the time of year.

Whatever your preference, there’s really no right or wrong time to indulge in a delicious, icy drink! You don’t need to head to the coffee shop to get one of these tasty drinks in your hands, either. Don Francisco’s Organic Cold Brew is easy to brew at home – giving you delicious cups of cold, refreshing coffee any time your heart (and taste buds) desires. 

But before we dive in to sharing more about our cold brew, let's take a look at the difference between iced coffee and cold-brewed coffee.

Cold brew versus Iced coffee

While both beverages are in fact served cold, the brewing method is significantly different. Here are the basics:

  • Iced coffee is brewed hot using a traditional drip or pour over method. Then it’s served over ice and enjoyed black or with cream and sugar.

  • Cold brew is steeped in cold water for 24 hours, creating a concentrate that’s diluted to your preference and served cold. This brewing method impacts the overall taste, consistency and acid levels. 
  • Cold water affects how coffee grounds are utilized during the brewing process. Because of this, tests have shown coffee brewed using the cold water method is actually less acidic and more mild - offering a slightly dense and silky texture you won't often find with traditionally brewed coffee. It's also naturally sweeter, reducing the need for added sugar.

    Making Cold Brew at home

    This summer, stay at home and enjoy a cup of cold brew any time! With Don Francisco's Organic Cold Brew, you don't need special equipment to get a coffeehouse-worthy drink from the comfort of your own kitchen.

    All you need is a large glass container - a mason jar or glass pitcher works perfectly! - and a bag of Don Francisco's Organic Cold Brew. Empty the contents of the bag (2 pitcher packs) into a jar, then add the recommended cups of water and let steep for 24 hours. Once the brewing time is up, gently remove the pitcher packs and dilute the concentrate with the recommended amount of water (more or less to your preference) and pour over ice for a smooth, rich taste. Perfect for warm summer months!

    If you want to give cold brew a try, this is great opportunity. For a limited time, we're offering a FREE bag of Don Francisco's Organic Cold Brew with any online order of Don Francisco's Coffee branded products. Each sealed sample bag makes one pitcher of Cold Brew (six 8-ounce servings). Offer good until supplies last!

    When it starts to warm up outside, there's nothing better than a cold, refreshing glass of cold brew. Visit Don Francisco's Coffee to stock up for the season.
