Some like it cold. Everyone likes it fresh. Cold- filtered (or room-temperature) coffee relies on time, rather than heat, to create a brew with less acidity, enhanced flavor and aroma, and a thicker, bolder quality. The concentrate, which you dilute before serving, has a higher caffeine kick, too. It’s worth the wait. It’s also worth choosing a quality bean. The roots of Fresh Thyme coffee “start at the source,” says Meghan Daw, RD, LDN, Fresh Thyme Registered Dietitian. “We work with farmers, co- ops, and mills on a direct basis.” Fresh Thyme sources only the top 5 percent of Arabica coffee and roasts it in small batches so it is only days old when it comes to the stores. It’s also not all about the caffeine. “Coffee is one of the highest sources of antioxidants in our diets,” says Fresh Thyme Registered Dietitian Kerry Clifford, MS, RD, LDN. “But check out your ingredients so you’re not drinking your calories away!” coffee cold-press ONE OF THE HOTTEST THINGS IN COFFEE IS REALLY COLD.
