My mom loves coffee in the mornings but recently she’s been suffering from problems relating to acidity and that means she’s been told to cut back on coffee.
My friend’s eldest son also likes coffee but he’s always on the move and he’s worried about being burned if a coffee splashes over him.
The Bialetti Cold Brew Coffee Maker solves both of their problems and here’s why.
A Massive Reduction In Acid
The cold brew process is a slow one. It has to be. When you heat up the coffee you’re enabling a ton of chemical reactions to release the flavor the coffee bean into the water.
Without heat, the same reactions take place but over a much longer period of time.
This, it turns out, is good news if you’re trying to cut down on acid things in your diet because coffee brewed in cold water is 65% less acidic than coffee prepared in the traditional way.
You Can Drink It Cold
My recommendation is that if you’re going to drink coffee cold that you drink it very cold.
On a recent trip to Vietnam, where the coffee is incredibly bitter, I found that most people there drink their coffee over ice with a little condensed milk added to it.
The ice takes the edge off the coffee and if you spill an iced coffee on yourself when you’re driving, you won’t be scalded and you shouldn’t be distracted from the road. Which is why my friend’s son has gone with cold brew too.
Why This Coffee Maker?
The Bialetti Cold Brew Coffee Maker is a great resource because it’s sensibly priced (less than $30) and it makes a great cup of coffee. It also doubles as a tea infuser which is fantastic for me because I love to make infused teas. You can learn about tea infusion here on YouTube:
