Which is actually better: cold brew or iced coffee?

For some people, cold coffee is not a preference; it's a way of life. Iced coffee is the tried and true option. All you need is a cup of ice to turn your regular cup of joe into a delicious, refreshing treat. Cold brew, on the other hand, takes much more time to cultivate. Instead of pouring hot coffee over ice, cold brew requires hours of steeping before the coffee concentrate is ready to drink. Fans of iced coffee love its simplicity, while cold brew fanatics say nothing can beat its flavor. Which is your go-to?

Iced coffee is simple and unassuming. All you need is a pot of fresh coffee and some ice, and bam—your new creation is ready to drink in moments. 

Sure, iced coffee can be a tad more acidic than its cold brew counterpart, but what some believe iced coffee lacks in flavor, it makes up for in convenience. Iced coffee is always a good idea.

Cold brew is much more forgiving than iced coffee. According to VinePair

Cold-brew coffee...is made by steeping coarsely ground coffee beans in room-temperature water for six to 12 hours. This creates a coffee concentrate you mix with cold water or milk.

The result is a smooth, delicate beverage, complete with tonal notes ranging from robust and earthy to subtle and sweet. Cold brew is the cooler, more mature older sister of iced coffee, and we're here for it.
