Nothing beats a refreshing iced filter coffee on a hot summer day! At Coffee Roasters Scotland, we utilise a process known as ‘Japanese-style iced pour over.’ It’s produced by pouring a strong pour-over coffee over ice. Brewing hot coffee directly onto ice cools and dilutes the brew at the same time. This results in a delectable cold filter coffee. We prefer this approach over ‘cold brew’ because it maintains more of the acidity and sweetness of the coffee.
For 1–2 hours after brewing, this coffee will taste fantastic straight from the fridge.
Because the ice melts and dilutes the brew, we brew the iced pour over a touch stronger than the ordinary pour over.
We like bright and fruity coffees for iced pour overs since they maintain the greatest acidity and sweetness when brewed over ice. We’ve discovered that the low temperature might lessen the flavour of coffee, therefore we recommend starting with a strong coffee.
