Trend Alert: Cold Brew Coffee and Where to Get It in Manila
Not hot, not iced. COLD!
(SPOT.ph) Cold brew coffee is the latest caffeine craze in Manila. It's a simple process, really, though tricky to perfect: You leave ground coffee in water for an extended period of time, seep it through a filter, and enjoy. You can add some water to cut the concentration, flourish it with chocolate for a unique kind of mocha, or enjoy it with milk.
