The Summer of Cold Brew

This is the summer of cold brew coffee in Charlottetown.

In our house this was brought on by the introduction of a Japanese Hario Water Brew Coffee Pot, ordered from Amazon in March. We coarse-grind up some coffee, put it in the filter sleeve, add cold water, and leave it in the fridge overnight. Twelve hours later we’ve got easy-drinking cold coffee.

This morning I had the chance to taste the new cold brew at Receiver Coffee; it’s in a whole different class. More like wine than coffee, I told Chris, the personable brewmaster. You should try it. Especially this afternoon, when the temperature peaks and it’s just what you need.

Because I had both a cappuccino and a flagon of cold brew, I’m a little bit over the top this morning. But in a pleasant way.

Does the Hario manage to retain the coffee silt in the filter basket and keep it out of the basket? I've never found a way to filter it completely and always have to decant.

Start summer days with one of the new cold brews, and recharge with coffee and tea cocktails while they're hot. Of course, summer ales are suitable for any kind of day when you want a cold one, and there's always something new brewing.
