The world of coffee is growing every year. We are now in a time where home brewing is becoming extremely popular. But not just brewing your morning coffee, now it is also easy to have espresso at home and even your own cold brew! The question most people have when starting out brewing at home is what kind of beans to use for each brew? That’s what will we discuss now.
When it comes to cold brewing you can really use any kind of roast you want. Some prefer a light roast because they generally like lighter roast coffee, and notes that it brings. Something to know about cold brew though, is that you don’t always get the same fruity or floral notes you would if the light roast coffee was brewed hot. That’s generally why a darker roast is used. The nutty, chocolatey notes you tend to get from a darker roast can still be prominent in a cold brew. There are many different cold brew devices and methods available now but you can start as simple as filling a french press with your favorite coffee and cold water and steep it in the fridge over night for the morning!
The great thing about home brewing is that it’s completely up to you. You can trial and error until you find the perfect roast to use for your perfect drink.
