Other Brewing Methods / Cold Brew Coffee - who's doing it?
« Last post by askthe coffeeguy on 04/12/2019, 03:51 AM »
Ok so not so long ago I was selling into stores had 50 clients in Melbourne and was making cold brew coffee using the cold drip slow filter process, but things slowed down a bit since I've moved to Queensland, and I sold off most of my glass towers I used for preparation.

I did coffee catering for about 1000 people at an event last weekend, however, and I thought it would be a good time to crank out the cold brew again !

Couldn't bring myself to assemble the tower for a once off event though, so I made a batch using the immersion method, with a hot water 'bloom' to get things started !

I found and article that interviewed 50 of the world's top baristas about their cold brew methods, so I used an amalgamation of their methods to inform my technique, using a single estate Honduras coffee roasted for filter, and it produced a smashing result which I was very happy with !

Thankfully I even had a little leftover from the event, which I have been enjoying daily over ice with milk!

Anyone else on the cold brew coffee train?

If so what's your process? And are you happy with the results?

took a while to get this hooked up and started, and have to say it was pretty disappointing... a few bubbles and squeaks (& steam clearly going somewhere inside) but no water came out the group head. Disappointing as I would have thought the first thing the technician would have done was tested it! Clearly will have to make a phone call

Yessssss! Most likely will be there, it's so strange that it's from the Monday to Thursday this year instead of the usual end of the week... I wonder why... maybe suits the WBC times better for competitors... ?

They’re all good! I too have a big order coming and am most excited about the Yirg which sounds awesome! Rai is a great guy to deal with and he has huge knowledge and brilliant product on offer. I hope he’s here for many years to come because I’ve never been happier with my bean supply!
Ah that's really great to hear, says my payment is pending though at the moment and haven't gotten a confirmation email from them, but assuming it must be some PayPal thing hehe.

Ahhh I was sooo very tempted for that Yirg mate... next time! I'll let y'all know how they roast/taste!

Just put my first order through with ICT!!! Took advantage of the Black Friday free shipping hehe. Alot of beans that I would have wanted were sold out!

Ended up getting:
Mystery bag 4x 200g
3kg Cuba Serrano
3kg Colombia El Mirador
3kg Uganda Bugisu A Grade

I tend to get really bright, fruity, juicy coffees but I really wanted to branch off this time and try some outside-the-usual stuff! I aimed to get something earthy/spicy/herbal, something fruity, and something syrupy and chocolatey.

Can't wait :D
