Cold Brew Coffee vs. Regular

One of the most popular ways to get your java is to drink cold brew coffee. Cold brew coffee has become the desire of coffee lovers everywhere and has become mainstream. The sale of cold brew has grown 115 percent in just one year, and it shows no signs of stopping. Millennial genetics, in particular, suggest that cold brew is the most delicious cold drink, with 66 percent of millennium Americans drinking cold brew coffee, compared to 34 percent of X generation who prefer regular coffee.

The cold brew coffee is not the same as the iced coffee, which only blends regular coffee poured onto the ice. No, there is art and science in making cold brew coffee. Cold brew is made by soaking the beans in cold water for 24 hours.

Some cold brew lovers boasted that this drink is a miracle caffeinated medicine, this drink not only tastes better than regular coffee but also healthier. So, what's the problem? Let's reduce the confusion about coffee.

The same coffee, but has a different flavor. That's a taste mystery that will unfold if you try to brew a single coffee with hot and cold methods. Why does temperature make such a difference? The video below will help explain to you, Renee Frechin as a chemist and master of coffee will help reveal the details through experiments, because as she says, "coffee is chemistry." 

The Caffeine Content
For those of you who want to reduce nervousness or want to further improve your workout process, should you consume cold brew coffee or regular coffee? The ratio of cold-water coffee is about 1: 6, compared to a coffee-drop ratio of about 1:20.

Concentrated cold brew coffee is also usually diluted with water or cream, which brings caffeine back up. Comparing levels of caffeine between different types of coffee can be seen from the variability of several factors. The type of coffee beans you will use, how much you use, how long you soak your cold brew, and how much is diluted with water or cream are all variables that determine the concentration of caffeine.

Although the content of caffeine will vary from glass to glass, the cold brew coffee with the Starbucks brand for example, which measures 16 ounces contains about 200 mg of caffeine while 16-ounce hot coffee contains between 260 to 375 mg, depending on the type of coffee beans. Clover and bright roasted coffee tend to contain higher caffeine and otherwise dark roasted coffee tends to contain lower caffeine.

So what's the conclusion? Of course cold brew coffee tends to contain less caffeine than regular coffee drops.

Acidity level
Because the process of making cold brew coffee does not use heat at all, so the taste of coffee tends to be less strong, sometimes bitter found with coffee drops. The acid found in coffee is mostly caused by the extraction process of coffee at very high temperatures. So using cooler water will produce a relatively smoother coffee, so less acidic.

Because cold brew coffee has a lower acidity level than regular coffee. This means it's easier on the digestive system, especially for people who struggle with heartburn or a sensitive stomach, explains Joan Salge Blake, RD, clinical associate at Boston University and author of Nutrition & You.

Because cold brew coffee is less acidic, many people feel better. However, if added a little cream, milk, or sugar to mask the sour taste that is, it turns it into a large calorie bomb. So, better to drink original cold brew coffee.

Nutritional Content
There are many studies that prove the health benefits of drinking coffee, such as increasing insulin sensitivity, fat burning, decreased dementia, and neurodegeneration. Much of this research focuses on the antioxidant content found in coffee. Coffee compounds such as chlorogenic acids that act as executioners in the fight against the disease.

Since cold brew coffee is relatively new to researchers, there is actually no strong evidence to suggest that cold brew coffee has lower or higher levels of antioxidants. Although more research needs to be done, perhaps because more acid and coffee oil are left behind during the process of making cold brew, there may be fewer antioxidants, but the numbers may be negligible.

Whether you like to brew or want to keep coffee drops, choose organic coffee beans because pesticides are often used in coffee plants.

The conclusion
Although cold brew tends to contain a little caffeine, that's not enough for people who do not tolerate caffeine well.

However, for people who can tolerate caffeine and want the benefits of coffee, if you are looking for something softer in your stomach with less caffeine, then choose a cold brew coffee for your coffee intake.
