What’s the difference between Iced Coffee and Cold Brew?
Well, a lot, actually.
While Iced Coffee is coffee that is brewed and placed over ice, Cold Brew is coffee that is steeped in water over a longer period of time (sometimes as a concentration that gets diluted later, sometimes not if you follow our recipe). Since Cold Brew is steeped for a longer period of time, it has a higher concentration of solids (higher total dissolved solids, or TDS, for the coffee geeks out there), while Iced Coffee has a lower concentration of solids, or TDS. Thanks to a higher TDS, Cold Brew is ‘stronger’ and more robust, while Iced Coffee is a more mellow, nuanced experience (and can be watery if done incorrectly).
One of our favorite Iced Coffee recipes at Stone Creek is an Iced V60 recipe. If you really want to taste a coffee and all that is has to offer, the Iced V60 recipe that you can find below is exactly what you’re looking for. But what if you want a little bit more pep in your step? We’d definitely recommend our Cold Brew recipe, which is smooth, creamy, and hits the spot just right.
