The hottest news in coffee? Cold brew.

Maybe it’s because I’ve only lived in the South (now, Southwest), but I’ve always preferred my coffee cold. Lately, the buzz in chilled coffee is all about cold brew. Whereas traditional iced coffee is brewed hot like normal and then iced down, cold brew is never exposed to heat.
