What Is Cold Brew Coffee?

Many people think that cold brew is really just cold coffee, but it’s so much more than that. For real cold brew coffee, you need to steep coffee beans for 8 to 12 hours in cold water to pull the flavor from the beans. If done right, the result should be smooth, rich, flavorful coffee. Once you drink a cold brew coffee, you might never go back to drinking hot coffee again. Now that you know what it is, we’ll move into the best recipes for Irish Cream Cold Brew coffee we’ve found.
