Starbucks launches Cold Brew Coffee in Singapore

Good news to all coffee lovers. Starbucks is launching Cold Brew Coffee in Singapore.

Cold Brewing is another way to brew cold coffee. Cold Brew Blend coffee is freshly ground then combined with cold water and slowly steeped for more than 10 hours in a Toddy Brewer. Instead of using heat, Cold Brew Coffee uses time to extract the coffee. The resulting coffee is ultra-smooth and naturally sweet, perfect for those who like less acidity in their iced coffee.

PS: If you don’t like your coffee black, you can add milk to the Cold Brew Coffee like me.

The Starbucks Cold Brew retails from S$4.90 (tall-sized).
