I find that the quick cooling of the extra-strong drip coffee keeps it from getting too acidic.

Why do people love iced coffee and Iced tea, but not cold coffee and cold tea?

Iced coffee tea are brewed differently from hot coffee and tea. As a result, hot coffee or tea left to cool or poured over ice is not the same as true iced coffee or tea.

Specifically, iced coffee and tea are usually brewed at double strength and for a greater period of time. This is because some flavors are less perceptible in cold beverages as well as because flavors are not extracted as quickly by cold water.

When traditionally-prepared hot coffee or tea is left to cool, the bitterness tends to become much more pronounced relative to other flavors.

At the Final Moment

iced coffee is a strong hot brew blended with ice or poured over ice. Cold brew is merely coffee brewed cold.

The cold brewing process takes longer, but results in less bitterness and less ice necessary to make your iced beverage.

Be careful though if you’re an iced coffee lover, because using cooks brew will result in a much stronger drink than hot coffee iced down, so it will not only have a higher caffeine content, but a much stronger coffee flavor.

If you’re going to be adding sweeteners or flavoring you’ll need more using cold brew than icing hot coffee.
