The Power of Hot Coffee: Why Some Like it Hot, Even in the Summer
If there's one thing we can all agree on, it's that we love coffee. In the midst of the summer months, many opt for the iced and cold brew versions of our favorite drink. Still, some remain purists and insist that hot coffee is the only way. It's not always easy to stick with your preferences in the middle of a heatwave. But if you love hot coffee, there are three reasons that you may continue drinking it this summer:
The taste: Hot coffee is more flavorful than cold brew or iced coffee because of its higher acidity levels. You can take any of your favorite Salty Sailor brews and put them over ice for a refreshing change, but the ice takes down the flavor by watering down the coffee. Cold-brew mitigates this issue, but still removes some of the coffee acidity in the process.
The ritual: Maintaining a consistent routine is comforting. For some, this predictable drink can make starting your day easier on scorching days. It doesn't matter if you slowly sip your coffee while watching the sunrise, or if your mug follows you from the kitchen to the bathroom as you finish getting ready for the day. Either way, that faithful cup is how you start your day.
The stubborn: While some prefer to switch to cold drinks to help regulate their body temperatures, you just don't like change. And that's perfectly fine. Some people drink iced coffee all year long. As long as you drink coffee, we'll get along just fine.
No matter your coffee preferences, we've got you covered with freshly roasted beans. Our personal suggestion? Brew enough in the morning to cover both cravings. That way you have your hot, ritualistic morning cup ready to go in the morning. In the afternoon, pour the leftover coffee over ice for a refreshing 2 pm pick-me-up. Resourceful and delicious!
