Cuckoo for Cold Brew!

You know that feeling when you really need a cold brew on a hot south Florida day?  I get that feeling almost EVERY day - I'm talking about cold brew coffee of course :)

If you haven't heard of cold brew and you love coffee - it is SOO worth a try!  Cold brew coffee is known for its lower acidity, higher caffeine content, and smoother taste.  With all the new food and health trends it can be hard to keep up, but making cold brew has one distinct difference than traditional brew - the heat is replaced with time!

 
 

You can buy your own home cold brew coffee maker and start brewing it at night - just be aware that it does take some time, so it will be ready by the morning!  If you don't have time to brew at home, you can purchase cold brewed coffee at a number of coffee shops, including Starbucks and Panther coffee.  Both Joe Jonas and Nick Jonas are big fans of the stuff, Joe even said if he was any coffee, he'd be Panther Cold Brew!  Here are some pics of Nick and Cold Brew!

 
 

Other options for cold brew - and MY personal favorite - is prepackaged bottled cold brew.  Some brands come straight up, some with flavors and sweeteners. Chameleon Cold Brew is a brand sold in glass bottles, some come black, but my preference is Mexican-flavored with cinnamon and almond extract!  Another awesome option and perfect if you like your coffee with cream, is Califia Farms.  They have an array of awesome drinks including a line of cold brew coffee made with almond milk!  Two of my faves are their Salted Carmel and their Triple Shot option for long nights on radio or in the studio!

It's really hard to not love cold brew, at least if you're a coffee lover - I've yet to find one coffee drinker who didn't really enjoy cold brewed coffee!  Have you tried any?  What's your favorite?  Let me know in the comments below!
