Cold Brewed Coffee Started Long Ago

The history of cold-brew coffee

Cold brew perhaps found its first dedicated audience with the Japanese in the 17th century, who had already been cold-brewing tea when Dutch trading ships introduced the beverage as a way to transport and make coffee that did not require dangerous fire. In the industry today, Japanese or Kyoto-style coffee is made by dripping water one drop at a time through glass apertures suspended like a tower. At a modern artisanal shop, to produce a batch of Kyoto-style coffee in five hours is considered fast.
