In the midst of a heatwave, coffee lovers everywhere find themselves diving head first into a cold brew.
There are tons of recipes out there, and varying opinions on what makes a truly "great" cold brew, but these simple overnight recipes have gone down a treat with the Extract team and are easy to replicate at home.
The key to a truly wonderfully cold brew is in your choice of coffee.
We find that a coffee with bright fruit notes and a boozy sweetness works a treat, so for this reason we'd suggest trying a honey or natural process coffee.
Spend a bit of time looking at the flavour notes of each coffee and go for big stand out flavours to get a truly delicious cold brew.
Cold brew can be enjoyed black or with milk and even a dash of syrup.
Once brewed, taste it and experiment to get a drink you enjoy. One of the most fun things about making cold brew is making the recipe entirely your own - so experimenting is encouraged and please do get in touch to share your results!

Shoutout to the guys at @extractcoffee here in Bristol for making some amazing beans. They also happen to be super chill and knowledgable, too! My favourite single origin from their range at the time is the Dr Strangelove Espresso, from El Salvador. Full of cocoa, nut and berry flavours, it makes a deliciously smooth coldbrew, which happens to be the one I use to make my Café des Arts #makecoffeebetter #coffee #coldbrew #yumoclock
