Yama Cold Brew Tower

Densely extracted, high in caffeine, awesome on a hot summer afternoon

32oz Yama Cold Brew Tower. Cold brewed coffee is radically different than iced coffee. Iced coffee is usually brewed hot then cooled in a fridge or over ice. Cold brew coffee is a slow drip method using ice water to extract body, flavors and aromatics from freshly ground coffee beans. Cold brew coffee has twice the caffeine content (due to the extended extraction), low acidity, an entirely different flavor profile and needs to be diluted with water before serving as it’s intensely strong.
