Ask the Experts: What's SCG's Favorite Cold Brew Method?
It's summer, so of course you're asking this! Because we're such serious devotees of cold brewed coffee, we have covered this topic in a few different ways this month.
We asked our resident Chemex enthusiast, Jess, to guide us down the lovely path of chilled-out Chemex cold brew. And we asked her so nicely that she did it! She even guided Teri in the process of brewing hot coffee in the Chemex over ice, resulting in a cool and smooth brew. This video shows you how it's done.
Gail brewed up three batches of coffee in the Sowden, Hario and Bodum Bean models that we carry, let them hang out over night and then we put them to a taste test. Find out if there's a better brew amongst the batch in this comparison video.
If you're looking for a handy guide to the cold brew options we have available, this blog article breaks it down for you. We cover the differences, features and benefits of the brew methods we mention here and more.
So, after all that -- do we have a favorite? You know how we love to play hard to get! Each method has its perks -- from the instant gratification of the Chemex over ice to the flexibility of the brew options offered by the Sowden -- so it's difficult to choose. But there is some comfort in that, right? With so many great options, there's gotta be one that will meet your needs.
