A technology for brewing cold coffee using a laser has

On hot days, many coffee lovers prefer cold brew coffee. It has a high caffeine content and good taste, but it has a drawback. Such a drink should be infused from 8 to 24 hours. But the development of scientists from the German University of Duisberg in Essen allows you to speed up the procedure at times.

A technology for brewing cold coffee using a laser has been developed

The researchers used a laboratory laser, tuned to give pulses of 125 picojoules for 10 picoseconds. After that, the laser pulse was passed through a mixture of ground coffee and water for about three minutes. According to the source, the beam passes through the drink up to 80,000 times per second.

The result is a coffee that is in no way inferior to the classic cold brew, but brews much faster. At the same time, the acidity index (one of the characteristics of coffee) does not differ much from the traditional method of preparation, and the caffeine level turned out to be closer to ordinary hot coffee.

At the same time, scientists argue that “laser” coffee can be improved if it is brewed in this way for a few more minutes. It will be more flavorful and high in caffeine.

The team has high hopes for the commercialization of the technology and plans to work on mass-produced laser coffee brewing systems for coffee shop use.
