Cold brew, the brewing method that has been the craze over the last few years, doesn’t look to be slowing down any time soon. Are you cold brewing coffee for your home or shop? What’s your recipe?

Whether you prefer a super chocolaty, creamy body coffee, a fruity, natural processed coffee or a bright washed African coffee, you can find what you’re looking for in our coffee offerings at RhoadsRoast Coffees. Simplistic or extravagant, you may have seen our instructional guide in a previous coffee resource blog, but there are many ways to enjoy this delicious cold caffeinated beverage.
Recently, we tried our single origin 100% Arabica El Salvador coffee from a farm called Santa Maria. This coffee comes from the Aguilar family. Its flavor profile at a full medium roast creates a nice chocolaty, caramel smoothness with a sweet nutty finish, perfect not only for cold brew but also a great component for an espresso blend or even a house blend. After two days of degassing from roasting, we used a ratio of 1:5, coffee to water, and let it sit for 20 hours. When it was time to enjoy what we hoped to be a delicious brew, we removed the stopper and let the coffee drain until all of the liquid was removed from the top container where the coffee and water has been sitting. Personally, we enjoy our cold brew concentrate black without any additives and with at least one ice cube to allow the coffee to open its flavors. At first sip there was an intense, sweet milk chocolate note to it with a syrupy mouthfeel. After a bit more sampling of our cold brew, we noticed that a mild sweet cherry note started to pop.
