Best 5 cold brew coffee recipes

One of the phenomena amongst coffee preparations, cold-brew has the highest global growth among coffee users. With just coffee and water, you can prepare a cold brew in just 12 to 18 hours with nearly anything in your kitchen. The drink you brew is cool, refreshing, and caffeinated. If you want a hot cup, steam it in the microwave or serve it over ice. A particularly robust cup of flavor and freshness is iced cold-brew coffee; however, the ice can melt and significantly mellow the coffee’s strength. If you still find it to be too strong, add milk or water to taste. We spoke to our #gloocoffeecommunity of enthusiasts and asked for their favorite cold-brew coffee recipes.
