A refreshing and tasty alternative to traditional iced coffee, white cold brew is a type of cold brew coffee that uses white chocolate in place of regular chocolate or syrup to give it a sweet, creamy flavour. It is typically made by steeping coffee grounds in cold water for several hours, then mixing in white chocolate and served cold.
