While coffee is traditionally served hot, the humid weather in the country makes cold coffee a more conducive preference for the general public.
Cold Brew is growing in popularity and more and more Filipinos are falling for its smoother and naturally sweet flavor. Using a custom Cold Brew blend, Starbucks has introduced to many coffee lovers the complex and compelling flavors of Cold Brew.
I enjoyed doing this process at home and manage to serve my java cravings within reach (by opening the refrigerator and pouring from my cold brew pitcher)
From the name itself, we can glean that Cold Brew undergoes a different process than ordinary brewed coffee. Cold Brew is made using cold water all throughout the 20-hour preparation process. It uses coarsely ground coffee, and is steeped slowly in cold water. This procedure which relies on time instead of heat gives Cold Brew its naturally sweet flavor and smooth texture.
“We’re introducing two new innovative and coffee-forward beverages that will surely excite our customers especially those who are Cold Brew drinkers, giving a new way to experience cold coffee,” Keith Cole, head of marketing for Starbucks Philippines said.
Aside from the Vanilla Sweet Cream Cold Brew which will be available in all Starbucks stores starting July 25, coffee enthusiasts can also try the new Starbucks Nitro Cold Brew at Starbucks Reserve® 14 Jupiter store in Makati.
I have yet to try the Nitro brew and currently hooked with the Vanilla Sweet Cream Cold brew.
