For cold brew and iced coffee, we recommend low-acid, medium roasts, especially those with caramel or chocolate notes. Generally, try to avoid coffees with specific flavor peaks (floral, fruity, or other), as these will stand out even more when the coffee is iced, unless you're specifically looking for a tea-like flavor. We especially recommend these roasts formulated for iced coffee. My own personal favorite is the Westlake Blend from Conduit Coffee, as it produces an ultra smooth, chocolatey iced coffee. Dig deeper by looking into our Iced Coffee 101, or read all about nitro cold brew.
