How to brew iced coffee [quick cooling method]

It's the season for delicious iced coffee.

So this time, I will tell you how to brew iced coffee using the "quick cooling method."
This brewing method requires more skill than you might expect, but we encourage you to give the recipe we'll introduce to you a try.

Two ways to brew iced coffee

There are two main ways to brew iced coffee.
They are the "quenching type" and the "cold brewing type."

The "rapid cooling" method involves rapidly cooling coffee extracted with hot water with ice. Its characteristics are a full-bodied flavor and gorgeous aroma. By cooling it quickly, the flavor and aroma of the extracted coffee can be locked in.

With the rapid cooling method, the taste of the coffee is likely to change, so it is recommended that you drink it as soon as possible, or at the latest on the same day.

As we mentioned in a previous article , the "cold brew" method involves slowly extracting coffee using water.
The coffee bag containing the grounds is soaked in water and placed in the refrigerator for 8 to 12 hours to brew.

The cold brew method, which does not allow flavor to dissolve as easily as hot water, is characterized by the fact that it extracts coffee slowly over time, resulting in a soft mouthfeel and a gentle, refreshing taste.

The flavor does not change easily over time, so if you close the lid tightly and store it in the refrigerator, you can drink it deliciously for about two days.
