The pour-over surely takes place when choosing the brewing method for your favorite coffee beans. For most, the pour-over coffee is significantly better than the drip method because the flavors tend to be more vibrant, and you have more control over the brewing process. However, to truly experience all the flavors of a pour-over, you must try it hot and iced to get the full essence of the coffee. To clarify, cold-brewed coffee is served with ice, and then you can take a hot brewed coffee and cool it down by serving it over ice. This post will refer to a hot brewed coffee cooled down and served over ice.
When you use the iced coffee method, you should notice a difference because, technically, they are chemically different. Colder coffee drinks tend to have less acidity than hotter ones, which may account for them being smoother, and you may notice the flavors are more assertive, or you might discover new ones. On the surface, this may not seem like a big deal in the winter months, yet when the summer sun is nearing its peak in the middle of the day, you might want an iced coffee, and it is good to know what to expect.
