The health benefits associated with coffee drinking—decreased risk of developing type 2 diabetesheart disease, neurodegenerative disease, and dying prematurely—are the same for both cold brew coffee and regular coffee, said Hu, Fredrick John Stare Professor of Nutrition and chair of the Department of Nutrition at Harvard Chan School, in a July 28, 2017 Health.com article.

Cold brew may even be healthier than regular coffee, Hu said. Because it’s less acidic than regular, many people may find it tastier and thus have less need to mask the acidic taste with calorie-laden cream, milk, and sugar.
