Cold brew coffee is the latest fad but it contains fewer of the antioxidants that help us prevent heart disease, stroke, cancer, respiratory ills, and neurologic deterioration. Researchers at Philadelphias Thomas Jefferson University studied hot and cold brews of light and dark coffee roasts.
Their studies show that hot brewing dark roasted coffee extracts the most antioxidants from coffee. Cold brewing dark roast or brewing light roasted coffee hot or cold fails to deliver these desirable compounds but yields more caffeine.
So you can enjoy coffee brewed hot or cold. If you drink coffee with your health in mind, go ahead and brew it in the old-fashioned way with boiling hot water.
