It's a hot day in North Hollywood and you're craving something cold and caffeinated, so you head on down to your favorite spot - Republic of Pie. On the menu, you see Iced Coffee AND NoHo Cold Brew... What's the difference?
The difference is in the process the coffee goes through from whole bean until it reaches the ice in your glass.
When we make you an iced coffee, it starts out just as a hot pour over coffee would. We will grind the best beans from around the world to the perfect size and using a pour over filter system, it is brewed with hot water. The resulting hot brew is then poured over ice.
The NoHo Cold Brew is specific to Republic of Pie. Those same beans are ground to the perfect size and are introduced to cold water where they brew for a whopping 24 hours! Brewing in cold water minimizes the coffee's acidity and lets its natural sweetness shine.
So, there you go! Two different tastes and two different drinks to cool you down.
"I love the cold brew!
It's great as is, but I like to add a splash of vanilla and cream to make MY perfect drink!"
