Cold Brew with Asobu

I am obsessed with everything coffee- from the actual beverage, to the smell, to learning it’s origin, everything! I’ve always wanted to try cold brew coffee, as I hear everyone raving about it and how it’s so amazing. Well, my friends at Asobu were able to let me try their Asobu Cold brew Insulated Portable Brewer!

Asobu Coldbrew Insuated Portable Brewer is an innovative brewing method combining coarse coffee grounds, cold water and a 12-24 hour steeping time. The resulting coffee is delicious and versatile and can be enjoyed anywhere cold or hot.FullSizeRender 4.jpg

This is how I made the cold brew coffee:

  • Set aside 3 oz of ground coffee.
  • Set aside 3 cups of cold filtered water.
  • Unscrew the lid, leaving the mesh in the carafe.
  • Add a third of the ground coffee and then add a third of the water making sure all of the coffee grounds are wet.
  • Repeat with the rest of the coffee, a third at a time.
  • Twist on the lid and let it brew for 12-24 hours.
  • Hold down the button to drain the cold brew coffee into the portable carafe!FullSizeRender 7.jpgFullSizeRender copy.jpg

FullSizeRender-3.jpgAt first, I was skeptical on how much of a difference cold brew coffee would taste from a good ol’ hot brew coffee. The difference was amazing. The cold brew coffee had this distinct smooth thick taste to it. I found it less bitter but also so satisfying. Coffee solubles dissolve best between 195 to 205 Fahrenheit, so coffee brewed with hot water has a more full-bodied, flavorful taste profile than cold brew. Hot water also pulls the soluble chemicals out of the grounds quickly, and makes them more volatile. … This is why cold brew almost never tastes acidic or bitter.FullSizeRender-2.jpgFullSizeRender 3.jpgFullSizeRender 9.jpg

The product was very easy to use and even easier to clean. Check out where you can purchase your Asobu Coldbrew Insuated Portable Brewer below!
