National Cold Brew Day 2024 is Saturday, April 20, bringing some brew-tiful deals and freebies for coffee fans. 

Cold brew is sometimes confused with iced coffee, but make no mistake: the two beverages are different. Cold brew is known for its smooth, rich flavor and more caffeine compared to the typical iced coffee – thanks to a different brewing method.

Cold brew is made by steeping coffee grounds in room temperature or cold water for several hours. Iced coffee is made like a normal brewed coffee, where the grounds are brewed with boiling water over a short period of time.
