The 10 Best Coffees For Cold Brewing

video play icon

This wiki has been updated 15 times since it was first published in December of 2018. Cold brew, which once was a craze, has now become part and parcel of mainstream coffee culture. Don't get it confused with your everyday iced cup o' joe, though, because the two are worlds apart. This stuff is made by steeping grounds in cool water for anywhere from 12 to 24 hours. The resulting taste is mild, less acidic, and slightly more sweet than regular java. When users buy our independently chosen editorial choices, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki.

Editor's Notes

December 27, 2018:

While it's objectively hard to rank a thing as subjective as coffee, there are patterns that emerge after hours and hours of research. Some blends simply trounce the others, as is the case with Stone Street. We are glad to see that so many eco-minded options are available, whether it's a company contributing to reforestation (Tiny Footprint Coffee), helping stray animals (Huge Coffee), or safeguarding local communities, as many of the other companies do. Almost all ten of these picks have a unique and near-ubiquitous reputation for being delectable and smooth, so it's hard to go wrong with whichever option one chooses.

In recent years, his writing chops have developed alongside his musical skills, thanks to a rich double life. During the day, he apprenticed with “Rolling Stone” journalist and critic Will Hermes, and when the sun set, he and his NYC-based, four-piece band gigged at high-end venues across the northeastern United States. His affinity for sharing things he's passionate about has culminated in nine years of experience as a music teacher at elementary schools, where he honed his ability to simplify and elucidate concepts to the uninitiated. All considered, he feels most at home writing about instruments, audio electronics and backpacking gear.
