Coffee lovers! Your hot brew has higher antioxidant levels

The researchers, from Jefferson (Philadelphia University + Thomas Jefferson University), say the difference may have health impacts.

"These acids may be responsible for the higher antioxidant activities observed in the hot brew coffee samples".

It's made using a number of methods, but cold brew is typically coffee that's been batch brewed using full immersion with cold water, over a period of about 12-24 hours.

While the popularity of cold brew coffee has soared in recent years - the United States market grew 580 per cent from 2011 to 2016 - the researchers found nearly no studies on cold brew, which is a no-heat, long-steeping method of preparation.

The numbers were higher across the board for all of the coffees when the beverage was hot.

"We knew we could make a better ready-to-drink coffee than what consumers are getting from the cold brew that's now on shelves".

The most ubiquitous claim is that cold brew is less acidic and therefore lowers your risk of gastrointestinal issues such as acid reflux and heartburn.

The lefty has a career ERA of 3.74 over five seasons with the Detroit Tigers and Tampa Bay Rays. Hamels and his agent, John Boggs, have said they would be open to exploring a longer-term deal.

What's more, the team found there is little merit to the widespread claims that cold brew is less acidic than an americano: in fact, their pH levels are nearly identical.

Both hot- and cold-brewed coffee oscillated between pHs of 4.85 and 5.13. Some of them showed that hot brew coffee has measurable health benefits including a lower risk of depression and diabetes.

"Coffee has a lot of antioxidants, if you drink it in moderation, research shows it can be pretty good for you".

"For us, Flash Brew represents the next evolution of the convergence of quality and convenience in coffee, and we're excited to push the boundaries in the RTD space with this launch, and future extensions of the Flash Brew line".

"But they also thought they would do better, and we demonstrated that this expectation was at least partly responsible for their improved performance", Madzharov added.

The study suggests that hot brew coffee has more health benefits than cold brew. "We found the hot brew has more antioxidant capacity", said Megan Fuller, an Assistant Professor from the varsity. Researchers suggest not drinking cold brew in order to avoid gastrointestinal distress.
