Since the weather outside is still so beautifully warm, and we got some fun new products here at Mason Jar Lifestyle to try, I thought it was the perfect time to write a blog on Mason jar cold brew coffee. Cold brew coffee is great because it is less acidic and bitter than hot brewed coffee. I also need to clarify something – iced coffee is not cold brew coffee. Iced coffee is just strongly brewed hot coffee that is poured over ice. Totally different taste profiles.
So, if you don’t like coffee or iced coffee because of the bitter taste, give cold brew a try and then make your final decision. Mason jar cold brew coffee is not as bitter as hot coffee tends to be, and the cold brewing decreases the acidity and brings out the sweetness. Add your favorite creamer and flavored sweetener and -boom!- heaven in a jar!
I’m sure you’ve all seen more and more cold brew coffee options in the refrigerator case at your local grocers, but they are all pretty high in price. Making your own will absolutely save you money, and who doesn’t like to do that??
