What is the difference between a cold brew and a hot brew?

The main difference between cold brew and hot brew coffee is the brewing temperature and time.

Hot brew coffee is brewed with hot water, typically at a temperature of 195-205°F (90-96°C). The water is poured over the coffee grounds, extracting the flavor and aroma in a matter of minutes. Hot brew coffee is typically stronger and more acidic than cold brew, with a more traditional coffee flavor.

Cold brew coffee, on the other hand, is brewed with cold water over an extended period of time, usually around 12-24 hours. The cold water extracts the flavor and caffeine from the coffee grounds slowly, resulting in a smooth and less acidic flavor profile. Cold brew coffee is typically less bitter and has a slightly sweeter taste compared to hot brew coffee.
