Even if you are a morning person, we are all sometimes lazy to make coffee. Not only that but making coffee, (manually or using a coffee maker) makes us spend a certain amount of our precious time every morning. If you are late for work, the least of your worries is the need to make coffee. For making cold-brew coffee, simply combine the grounds with water, then let it steep overnight, or wait at least 12 hours. However, that’s all you’ll have to do. Go to sleep and your fresh coffee drink will be ready once you’re up. This is not the case with regular coffee drinks. Unlike other coffee drinks, a cold brew coffee is always waiting in the morning, just grab it and you’re ready to go!
3. Brewing is quiet.
Speaking of morning people, if you are one of them, surely someone from your family is not. Making coffee can make annoying sounds and wake up your family. Some coffee makers are just too noisy and may even ruin your mood. And what is the benefit of cold brew coffee? Well, pouring a glass of cold brew won't wake up anyone! Besides, no fancy equipment is required.
4. Cold-brew coffee improves your mood
Generally speaking, caffeine acts as a central nervous system (CNS) stimulant – and that’s why people usually consume it. They want to feel more energetic and improve their mood. Therefore, the caffeine in cold brew coffee will surely improve your mood.
Also, one survey with office workers suggests that consuming caffeine with ornithine (an amino acid involved in protein metabolism, found in foods such as dairy products and meat, and which can be synthesized in the body) in the morning had a positive effect on self-reported mood (especially reducing “feelings of fatigue”, and increasing “willingness to work”, and “vigor”) in the late afternoon.
Therefore, if you consume a cup of cold brew coffee before work, you’ll be in a better mood, you may improve working memory and alertness, and you will do your job the best possible way.
