Cold brew has a huge customer base but still a lot of people are confused between cold brew and regular hot brew coffees
The brewing process involves dissolving water with coffee grounds and extracting acids, oils, sugars and other organic and inorganic substances from it
The solution thus obtained, is called extraction, which can be in a concentrated form or a ready to drink beverage
So when we dissolve coffee grounds with hot water (92-95 C) and get an extraction out, we call it a hot brew coffee.
On the other hand, when we dissolve coffee grounds with cold water (room temperature), we get a cold brew
The brewing time for hot brews vary from 25 seconds to 4 mins (depending on brewing method), and for cold brew it varies from 12hrs to 24hrs
The table below breaks it down for you. Happy Brewing!
