Iced coffee, cold brew, and ice cream are the best summer choices. Iced coffee is a coffee drink served cold and sometimes with ice. It is prepared by brewing coffee with ice or cold milk, so iced coffee is usually brewed higher than normal coffee because it is served with ice diluted to make the perfect taste. Mostly, “Iced coffee” is a packaged coffee-flavoured and sweetened milk beverage.
Cold brew coffee is made by soaking the coffee ground in cold water or room temperature for 12-24 hrs. Soaking coffee for a day will produce a very concentrated coffee, so it’s also served with milk and ice cubes. Coffee ice cream can be the best choice if someone doesn’t want to drink coffee as a beverage but enjoys it in a creamy, icy way.
Generally, coffee is rich in antioxidants that may be beneficial for health. Coffee not only stimulates the brain due to its caffeine content; many use it to be more active and alert. Some studies have also shown that coffee may reduce the risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease and type 2 diabetes. Plus, other benefits include supporting brain health, helping in weight management, decreasing the risk of depression, and supporting heart health and increased longevity. So, whether hot or cold, coffee has many lovers worldwide for stimulating the brain, health benefits, and delicious taste.
