How to Make Iced Coffee with Colet Automatic Coffee Machine
I. Introduction of iced coffee
Cold brew coffee has become very popular in recent years, which is a kind of coffee brewed in cold water for a long time. However, iced coffee doesn't take long time to make and it is just as efficient as regular hot coffee. The taste of iced coffee should retain the original bright feeling and rich taste of hot coffee, and should not be diluted by water and become dull taste. In contrast, taste characteristics of iced coffee and ordinary hot coffee are completely different, with less sour and more mild bitterness.
One of the biggest challenges in making iced coffee is how to balance the amount of water used to brew it with the amount of water created when the ice melts. In order to avoid the diluted taste of coffee, we need to use less water when making coffee. Also, let the hot coffee sink directly onto the ice so that the ice melts and the coffee cools without diluting the taste. When Colet self service coffee machine is used to make iced coffee, the brewing time is about the same as that of regular coffee. So, you might ask "how can I make iced coffee?"
