You might have heard of cold brewed coffee before, but do you know what it is? Cold brewed coffee has a less acidic and smoother coffee taste, as the coffee is made with coarse coffee beans which has been soaked in cold water and later strained. Hence, the end result is a cold brewed coffee with a much smoother texture as opposed to regular ‘ol coffee.

Cold brewed coffee usually takes up to 12 hours or more of preparation. This will give it time to develop a slightly sweeter taste compared to coffee that has been brewed directly with hot water, which would produce more of a bitter taste instead.

After the coarse coffee beans has been brewed for more than 12 hours, it would then be strained and served. The storage life for cold brewed coffee is between 2 weeks to a month. It also does not require the addition of sugar or milk as it tastes good the way it is, with its mild and smooth coffee flavours. Hence, the addition of sweeteners or milk would then be optional, depending on the drinkers’ personal preference.

Cold brewed coffee is associated with the cool, laidback hipster lifestyle and it can often be found packaged in trendy bottles and sold at cafés. Here are 8 places in Klang Valley where you can treat yourself to a creamy, delicious bottle of cold brewed coffee.

Don’t get confused! This is not a cup of Guinness. It is actually a cup of cold brewed coffee served by Brewmen. What makes Brewmen different? Their cold brewed coffee is dispensed via a tap with the infusion of nitrogen gas. This helps to create the foamy texture as the top layer of the coffee, which would bring out its smooth, creamy texture.

Hours: Tuesday-Thursday: 11.30am-10.30pm, Friday-Saturday: 10am-12am, Sunday: 10am-10.30pm. (Closed on Mondays)
