What is Cold Brew Concentrate?
Cold brew concentrate is a strong, concentrated form of cold brew coffee that is brewed using cold water and coarsely ground coffee beans. It typically steeps for an extended period of time, ranging from 12 to 24 hours. The result is a rich, smooth, and less acidic coffee concentrate that can be stored in the refrigerator for up to two weeks.
Why Dilute Cold Brew Concentrate?
Cold brew concentrate is much stronger than regular coffee and is meant to be diluted with water, milk, or other liquids before consumption. By diluting the concentrate, you can achieve your desired coffee strength and flavor. Whether you prefer a bold, robust coffee or a milder, smoother brew, our Cold Brew Concentrate Dilution Calculator helps you find the perfect balance.
