Calories in Cold Brew Coffee

Calories in Cold Brew Coffee

When it comes to your daily coffee fix, you might be wondering about the calorie count. If you're a cold brew aficionado or just curious about the world of coffee calories, you're in the right place. Let's dive into the world of cold brew and find out just how many calories are hidden in that smooth, chilled cup of coffee.

First things first, what exactly is cold brew? It's coffee brewed with cold water over an extended period, resulting in a brew that's less acidic and incredibly smooth. But what about the calories?

The good news is that cold brew coffee is naturally low in calories-- some say it could be 0 calories. Unlike some of the sugary coffee you find at coffee shops, a plain cup of cold brew is virtually calorie-free. It's like a guilt-free indulgence.

Adding Flavors and Calories

Now, here's where it gets interesting. If you start adding syrups, sweeteners, or creamers to your cold brew, those calories can start to add up. For example, a caramel cold brew would have additional calories from syrups, and mocha would have additional calories from sugars.

In a world where every calorie counts, it's good to know that your favorite cold brew can be a refreshing and low-calorie choice. Especially for cold brew, it's a lot easier to consume without any additional sugars or flavourings as it has a much smoother and less acidic taste. It's not as bitter as hot brewed coffee, making it a great option for health conscious drinkers who are particular about the taste. 

Why not try making your own cold brew with our cold brew coffee concentrates? Or getting our ready to drink cold brew black is also a perfect, fuss-free alternative. At Wake The Crew, there's something for everyone.
