What’s the difference between Cold Brew and Iced Coffee?

Cold Brew and Iced Coffee are far more different than one might think. In fact, despite being both served over ice and served cool, they undergo different processes.
  • Cold Brew, enabled by our new De'Longhi Cold Extraction Technology, has a cold extraction process, whereas
  • Iced Coffee is extracted at high temperature and then brewed over ice.

This difference in temperature, together with the pressure variation applied during the process, impacts on the overall flavour and aromas extracted from the beans.

In general, Cold Extraction Technology is able to exalt a sweeter and more fruited aromas of the beans. For this reason, some coffee beans - for example single origin, 100% Arabica, lighter toasted - are particularly appropriate for this extraction process, as it best exalts their organoleptic properties.
