Question of The Day December 7
Why should I use cold water when making coffee?
Simply put, cold water tastes better than warm water out of the tap. That’s because cold water has more oxygen and minerals in it than warm water. You’ve probably noticed that if you’ve ever drunk warm tap water, it tastes flat or a little off. So for the best-tasting coffee, tea, or other water-based drinks, always start with cold water.
