Organic Decaf Cold Brew Coffee

Yes I will confess from the out set , that I love a good a coffee fad. 

 

I am one of those weirdos who loves to know the difference between a cold brew, aeropress or drip filtered coffee and totally delight in trying them all. I was tried as a barista by an artisan coffee company in London and although that stint in my job life was not that long it left a large ‘coffee geek’ stamp on my heart. (See other coffee recipes here).

 

Now you know I don’t recommend lots of caffeine and I don’t think its  great idea to drink a lot of coffee (find out here for why) due to the acidity, the caffeine and how dehydrating it can be which is why I always stick to organic and swiss water method decaf coffee.

If your not a coffee fan then you may understandably wonder what the deal is with coffee. Why get so excited and why invest you money in it? Well for me I think it is the ritual, the stopping and pausing, the balanced bitter taste (not one for sweet drinks) and the fact that it makes me feel like I should be the CEO of a massive business when I drink it, living in New York and shouting ‘wheres my coffee!” (Go on, that surely cant just be me?)

Why cold brew? If you invest in good coffee often  it can be ruined with hot water or our poor brewing abilities, so by allowing it to brew cold you get all the true flavours without any of the bitter burnt-ness that is so often the case with plungers or filter machines or lets face it, our own ineptness!

 

So here is a simple DIY why of making some decaf cold brew coffee which I pretty much copied from this website highlighted by this brilliant blogger

 

It stores in the fridge really well and its makes the perfect iced latte in a flash – I took some in a flask last week on a long car journey to the Lakes and was perfect! Plus I felt very smug as my own organisation and coffee prowess – before I spilt it on my trousers and then forget about the half drunk contents and now have a furry flask to wash …

I love the smell of coffee, but not the taste. It is all about the tea for me!

Yes I love the coffee smell – I even make a homemade coffee scrub so I can get that coffee fix without drinking it itself! I love tea too – especially iced tea oh or green tea, such an easy way to boost health:)
