Iced coffee and iced lattes are very different but it is easy to remember with this simple fact. Iced latte’ have espresso. The iced coffee and cold brew do not.
Iced Coffee is double-strength hot brewed coffee over ice, or the ice is added after it’s brewed. All the coffee flavors are extracted from the coffee in this method.
Cold Brewed coffee is the latest iced coffee trend. It is coffee slow-brewed 12-16 hours in cold water, which creates a coffee concentrate with a lot less acidity. It creates a rich, smooth taste and is easier on the stomach. Add water and ice to taste. (Can also be used for hot coffee and as an espresso substitute).
