Frequently Asked Questions
1. What is cold brew?
Simply put, cold brew is coffee grounds steeped in room temperature (or cold) water for an extended amount of time - typically between 12-24 hours. Because no heat is involved in this process, it allows the solubles in coffee to dissolve fully, resulting in lower acidity, sweeter taste, smoother to consume, and typically little to no bitter taste.

3. What happens if you leave the brew bag in for over 24 hours?
Cold brew coffee is typically steeped for 12-24 hours. Typically, the longer you steep, the bolder the flavor, but don't go overboard; otherwise, you risk getting a bitter taste. Try some different steep times until you find that sweet spot that matches your flavor profile perfectly.
