A Piece of Coffee History: Cold Drip Coffee

Cold brew and cold drip coffee are also referred to as ‘Dutch Coffee’. This term dates back to the 17th century. During that time, Dutch commercial travellers did not always have the opportunity to brew their own hot coffee on their journeys through Asia. As a result, they developed these methods of coffeemaking.

By doing so, they did not have to do without coffee. They could even pre-produce it in large quantities and carry it with them wherever they went. Because cold brewed coffee can be stored and savored for up to two weeks.

Cold brewed coffee also contains less acids and bitter substances than coffee brewed at high temperatures. Therefore, it is not only a source of energy but also serves as a delicious and refreshing ice-cold drink.
