Aromatic and tasty Coffee

Coffee is not just any beverage but almost a ritual for many of us. And the best part about coffee is that there is a tasty recipe for everyone!!!

Coffee Recipes

Coffee is an immediate energy booster and a cup of coffee is the most important thing in the morning for millions of people all over the world. The amazing and heady aroma of the coffee-beans, enjoyed alone or together with milk. Many of us wants sugar into a foamy mixture and makes their coffee drink a delightful start to the day.

As I mentioned above, coffee is not only just a beverage but almost a ritual, and there is a significant amount of skills required to master the perfect cup of coffee, starting with the right coffee-beans and grinding them and finishing with the ready coffee or coffee drink. But for all coffee lovers who don’t have the time to dedicate making the beverage from the beginning, there’s instant coffee to the rescue which I personally don’t prefer and all Baristi too.

The best thing about coffee is that there is a flavour and recipe for everybody. You can prepare coffee in many different ways to suit your taste.

The most popular and well-known kinds are  espresso and cappuccino in the morning and espresso for all day long but many countries all over the world are braking these rules with their own coffee drinks.

For those who love cold beverages, you can use coffee as basic drink to create creamy ice coffee, frappe, mocha coolers, etc. You can make it tastier by adding chocolate syrup, ice cream, whipped cream and the likes. All you need to do is investing in a basic coffee maker, which is readily available in the market and in affordable prices. When you have your dream coffee machine or even a simple one, you can create your favourite coffee drinks within minutes!

How to create a Cold Coffee: The perfect recipe

In Summer we need something cool and refreshing and at the same time all coffee lovers prefer something dark and intense. And for coffee addicts like me, there’s no particular time for a tasty cold coffee.

This coffee is also known as iced coffee and it’s my go-to summer beverage because it inspires me and gives me that wake-up and power-kick all day long even on the hottest days.

Drinking coffee before a fitness training or work, helps fat burning by releasing fatty acids in the bloodstream!

For a long time, cold coffee for me meant mixing brewed coffee, sugar (I never use sugar the last years), milk and ice in a shaker to get a cold and frothy drink.

But over the years I have come to learn that cold coffee is so much more than that!!!

That’s why I went on a journey that took me across the world or even internet to find the best kind of cold coffee. Clean, clear and fresh flavours with just the right amount of milk and a strong kick of coffee. Now I use strong espresso coffee (double espresso to say the truth, with few ice cubes) to prepare my iced coffee after speaking with many top chefs, food scientists and coffee connoisseur, people who understood the complexity and chemistry of coffee, and tasting many different recipes.

Wrong Myth: Cold Coffee has no Full Coffee Taste and Doesn’t Give You the Same Kind of Kick as Hot Coffee

Few coffee fanatics concerns that cold coffee doesn’t work well with cold temperatures and it’s incapable of extracting that dark and bitter flavour.

Cold coffee is made either through the hot brew normally with a good coffee machine or the cold brew methods and iswell- known that is as strong as your cup of regular hot coffee.

In fact, some might say that the cold brew is even stronger!!!

How?

Hot Brew vs Cold Brew

The Americans swear by two methods of making cold coffee and if you were to understand these methods, you’d never complain that cold coffee doesn’t give you enough flavour or kick.

Coffee beans contain a mixture of compounds – oils, acids, minerals, aroma etc. When we brew coffee, coffee extracts these compounds giving its characteristic flavour.

Now, it comes down to the temperature of water that’s used for brewing and how long it’s left to brew. In the case of a hot brew, the coffee breaks down quickly, which is why it tastes strong and is full-bodied. But it also makes the coffee taste a bit acidic. The cold brew method doesn’t follow any right temperature and it replace the heat with time. So essentially, both the methods work a hundred percent to achieve that perfect kick of coffee.

The hot brew method is actually the Japanese way of making coffee. For this, you need to brew dark, highly concentrated, coffee in hot water and then pour it over ice. This kills the slightly oxidised taste of coffee and leaves you with something bold, intense and refreshing.

 

In USA hot brew method is similar to the Japanese technique. The cold brew method is a much longer process and requires 18-20 hours. You need to take some finely grinded coffee and put it in a tall jar. Take some cold water and be sure that the ratio of coffee to water is about 1:8. Pour this water over the coffee, cover and let it sit for around 18 hours or so. Pour it over a fine sieve, and throw away the larger granules. Add some milk if you want into this filtered coffee liquid and you’re ready!

If coffee is allowed to sit for such a long period of time then it’ll interact with oxygen which will eventually ruin its taste. Many coffee lovers say that in the hot brew method, coffee interacts with water in high temperature, and this can cause the coffee oxidation which might alter its taste. But some of them also suggest that when the hot brew falls onto ice, it recaptures all its flavour.

Many coffee researchers who focuses on the science of coffee suggest that the cold brewing method gives you an end product that has around 66% less acidity than hot coffee. And the icy serving temperature masks the acid even further. Another fact is that the bitter coffee molecules break down more rapidly in hot coffee than in cold which also lends to the delicious appeal of cold coffee.

That means that the cold coffee It’s less bitter, less acidic and can give you more kick than a freshly brewed cup of hot coffee.

Generally, I can’t decide which one of these two is better but when it comes down to taste, the hot brew method definitely is my favour one.

Cold Coffee Worldwide

When I drink cold coffee, my memories takes me to kind I had in Vietnam. There they use for it thick sweet condensed milk like syrup. Also known as ‘Ca Phe Sua Da’ it’s one I absolutely like but it’s also very sweet and I prefer not to drink a lot of it. All you need are just three ingredients: coffee, milk and ice.

The Italians also have their own unique way of making iced coffee and to me, it seems like it was discovered by someone who had very modern mind. Also known as ‘Caffe in Ghiaccio’ (iced coffee) needs hot brew (Americano or Lungo), some ice, sugar syrup(not for everybody accepted) and milk if you prefer it. Take simmering hot brew, add some sugar syrup into it, throw this mix on some ice and shake it hard. Note not to use crushed ice and instead go for big cubes.

The Greek style of coffee is known as frappe and I believe many of you are familiar with. They take instant coffee (Nescafe or other)  put it in a shaker with ice cubes and may be sugar if needed and shake it. After they serve it in a long glass with a straw and they add condensed  no sugared milk(if you want it of course – it’s not a must). The last 5-6 years they prepare also the Frapuccinno variation as cold coffee too. It’s a single or double espresso with ice cubes and milk froth at the top like a cold cappuccino.

Another method making cold coffee that I saw by a friend is to take cubes of frozen black coffee, dunk them in a jar and smash them with a blender. Then, pour in some shaken milk, and then shake, shake, shake and serve. I tried this method and it resulted in a delicious strong coffee but one which isn’t too creamy.

I hope this helps you find your preferred method of making cold coffee.
