What’s the Difference between Iced Coffee and Cold Brew Coffee?
- Cold Brew is a brewing method (cold water + long steep-time = mouth-watering coffee), whereas iced coffee describes how it’s served (hot coffee, served over ice). It’s still delicious, but a totally different taste, and tends to lack the ultra-smooth; deeply rich flavor that only cold brew brings to the table.
- Cold Brew Coffee grounds are steeped in cold water for 8-12 hours. The colder temperature brings out the rich, smooth flavor you love, without the bitterness or acidity often associated with coffee.
How do you enjoy your cold brew?? Plain or with milk or creamer? Sweetened or with an added flavor??
Me, I like mine with some caramel added in and some milk or heavy cream. Mmmmm! I add 2 TBS caramel to about 2 cups of cold brew coffee, and some milk over ice. I shake it up in a mason jar and enjoy! It’s that simple. There is no wrong way to do it!
I do “me” by sneaking outside when I get the chance and having a quiet moment. I am an outdoors kinda girl. Being out back on my property or in the woods makes me relaxed and happy!
Once you know how to make Dunkin’ Donuts Cold Brew Coffee at home easily, it’s easy to change up your cold brew flavors since you already have your pitcher full in the fridge.
Just grab whatever add-ins you and your family enjoy and in a couple minutes you are happily sipping away on an ice cold smooth tasting cold brew coffee!
- Mix in some coconut water with your water for a coco-nutty flavor.
- Try sweetened condensed milk for a creamy-sweet treat!
- Add in some vanilla ice cream and a splash of vanilla or a vanilla bean and make a float!
- If you want an ice-cold undiluted cold brew, make Cold Brew coffee ice cubes and toss them into your beverage.
Dunkin’ Donuts Cold Brew is crafted by hand in small batches, then easily prepared at home by steeping a special blend of coffee in cold water for 12 hours. This longer process extracts a uniquely distinctive, inherently sweeter flavor from the beans reminiscent of dark chocolate.
Tip: If you mix yours in a type of mason jar, you can screw the lid on it and shake, shake, shake, until everything is well mixed and frothy, mmmm!
