The cold brewed difference
According to the writers at Food and Wine here is the difference between cold brew and iced coffee. “Cold brew is in some ways a misnomer. The more accurate term to describe what we know of as cold brew would be cold steep, or cold infusion, but those don’t have the same curb appeal. Even still, cold brew never truly goes through a process of brewing — which, when it comes to coffee, means mixing with boiling water. Instead, cold brew coffee is made by steeping coffee grounds in room temperature or cold water for many hours. It is an infusion technique that has historically been used for tea to yield a more gentle, aromatic flavor profile.”
