The Benefits of Drinking Cold Brew

Some of us drink coffee daily. A cup in the morning. A matcha latte here. An  espresso there! The access to coffee is everywhere. What about cold brew? I had my first cup of cold brew last weekend. It was refreshing. The process of making cold brew is simple. Basically, you soak ground coffee for 12 to 24 hours, and then extract the concentrate out. Though its more concentrated than regular brewed coffee. 

What Are The Benefits?
The many benefits of cold brew amazes me. 
-Including the fact that's its less acidic than hot coffee, which is better for your teeth long term. 
-May boost your metabolism. Since cold brew contains caffeine, studies show that a higher metabolic rates, the more calories you're likely to burn off.
-May lower your risk of heart disease. Fun Fact: cold brew contains phenolic compounds, caffeine, quinides, magnesium, trigoneline, and lignans. 
-May coat your stomach better than hot coffee since cold brew has less acidity.
-May lower your risk of type 2 diabetes. Drinking 4-6 cups of coffee per day has been proven to lower the risk. Mainly, because of the chlorogenic acids, antioxidants found in coffee.

These are some of the benefits of cold brew and a good reason to try it. Plus, it's so easy to make at home. I've been drinking Starbucks cold brew and absolutely love it. I will take my own advice and make some cold brew at home soon.
