Damn straight. If anyone here has not tried cold brew coffee, it's delicious; it tastes like coffee smells. I've been making it with this thing for years.

u/cwcoleman · 15 pointsr/recipes

Yup, I got a cold brew bottle and it makes GREAT coffee. Just pour cold water over a pot's worth of grounds, let it sit for 8 hours, remove grounds, enjoy over ice with milk.

GOLD EDIT: wow - my first - THANKS!

u/madeinmars · 14 pointsr/blogsnark

Here are some ideas...!

+personalized shirt from or similar site - I got my SO a patriots shirt with his last name & birthday on it (was only about $30 w/ S&H). I also got this for my dad last year and he loved it.

+for readers: pre-ordered Milkman from Amazon for my cousin this year....I am debating getting my mom the new kindle paperwhite but am hoping it will go on sale on black friday

+I ordered LL Bean's wicked good moccasins for my SO's parents, good gift if you want to spend a little more but have literally no idea what to get them

+Have gifted this cold brew coffee pitcher multiple times and it is always a hit. My SO has used this almost every day since last Christmas...they have ones that are less than $20 on Amazon. I paired a cheaper one w/ ground coffee for a $25 white elephant gift last year

+My mom cherishes a similar mug I got her a few years ago - nice if you live far from your family. It's a little cheesy

+A close cousin is studying abroad next semester so I got her this bracelet with our state's outline

+Blue Q socks are always fun

I make a ton of cold brew, both to have nice cold coffee when it's hot out and because my boyfriend is just now getting into coffee and can't handle much bitterness, and i recommend buying a cold brew pitcher! Something like this. I have that exact one and I do about 4 heaping spoonfuls of ground coffee into the mesh cone, then after it sits at room temp for 24 hrs i pour it into a bigger pitcher that is stored in the fridge and refill the mesh with new coffee. The cone does a great job of keeping the majority of the grounds contained so I don't actually have to take the time to filter it, and I can keep it brewing continuously while we drink the brew in the fridge.

The finer the grind the more flavor you'll get but really it'll work regardless so it's up to you. I use about medium-fine. For starting out if you don't want to buy a pitcher before you're sure you want to drink cold brew a lot you can just put grounds in water and after it sits for a day strain through a small strainer lined with a paper towel

u/arefromportland · 11 pointsr/femalefashionadvice

On the job hunt and starting to think LinkedIn is working against me. I've also grown tired of espresso drinks I was drinking daily with the help of my Bialetti. Is now (when I don't have a job) really the time to purchase a cold brew machine, or should I continue picking up a pre-bottled cold brew at the store? The answer is neither, but I have no self control, so one of these will prevail. Will keep you updated.

u/lk3c · 10 pointsr/xxketo4u2

The heat index is expected to hit 112 today! Hydrate!

I got paid early because of the holiday tomorrow, so I just splurged on a cold brew coffee pitcher. I'll pick up some vanilla macadamia coffee for my cold brew enjoyment next week.

I roasted chicken thighs for dinner, roasted bacon, and we had raw vegetables with ranch dip. It was good and I see that being our summer thing. Especially right now, when we aren't getting our daily rain.

For those of you playing HP Wizards Unite, there is an event that starts this afternoon.

So much to do today! Last work day of the week. Tomorrow I plan on doing some gardening and photography, making side dishes to go with beef and pork ribs for lunch and doing some baking. I really need to make a couple batches of fathead dough for crackers and flat breads. Friday I work my PT job and then I have the weekend off.

Have a great day! ♥

u/Tech_Bender · 9 pointsr/Coffee

My wife doesn't like hers super concentrated. I make cold brew for her with a 1:20 ratio and she still heats it up and adds milk. The purpose for this was not because she likes cold brew, but to get her to stop using a Keurig. She would never clean it and it would be growing slime mold/algae in the water tank.

Her: "That shouldn't happen when I use it every day".

Me: "Love, that's going to make you sick if you keep that up."

For us it's a way she can have good quality instant coffee on demand without having to do a lot of work first thing in the morning.

My point of stating this is, if you enjoy it like that then don't be too much concerned about what others say is the "right" way to make cold brew.

This is what I use and it's great

If you're trying to understand the science behind it then my understanding is no there shouldn't be any difference. If anything you're saving money by not doing a high concentration brew.

Coffee is a solution. Water is a solvent. The particles of ground coffee that are water soluble will dissolve into the water. This process can be expedited with heat or agitation. We're doing cold brew so heat is being exchanged for longer duration of time. The higher the concentration of coffee though the more this process of diffusion slows down.

TLDR 1:6 to me sounds bogus because physics.

u/StrikeAnywherePanda · 8 pointsr/povertyfinance


Okay, I assume you are like me and prefer cold coffee. So I have this thing here:

It's wonderful. You put the coffee grinds in the middle, then put water in it and eventually the coffee grinds seep into the water and it's coffee! Pour it into a cup and add your stuff to it and it's just as good! If not better.

If the coffee at your place sucks and you would rather have some solid coffee, that is the way to go and a good way to make it cold without spending a crazy amount of money.

More Info:

It holds about two large glasses of coffee each, which is 4 out of my 5 work days. So when I use the second cup up, I just refill it with the same coffee grinds. It tastes fine to me because the thing holds about 14 scoops of coffee (on average). So in about a month I go through a large thing of coffee with is about $10. I buy regular creamer (nothing fancy) every other week which is $3. Then I use Stevia sugar because I'm trying to cut real sugar out, and a box of 100 packets cost about $5. That lasts about two months for me. So the total you get is way, way cheaper than the $4 a day iced coffee.

u/PixelTreason · 8 pointsr/1200isplenty

I don’t even bother with a French press - This works great!

Put some water in, add the filter with grounds in it, more water poured over that, give the grounds a bit of a careful stir to make sure the grounds are all wet and then leave it on the counter/fridge for 12-24 hours. Dump the grounds and then I have delicious, concentrated cold brew! Takes 2 minutes of actual “work”.

u/limbweaver · 7 pointsr/Coffee

The whole point of the Japanese style is to adjust your recipe to compensate for the ice and shortened extraction so you get something closer to a hot pour-over but cold. It's completely different from the bitter and thin brew you wind up with if you just pour a regular cup over ice.

The best way to make iced coffee is with a Hario V60 Fretta. I've also found that it's much more forgiving to brew at least 16 oz so you have some more water for extraction. Fruit forward Ethiopians are really good for iced V60. 200 grams ice, 300 grams water, ~30-32g coffee is a good starting point, 1-2 clicks finer on your grinder than you would normally use for V60.

u/SearchingForOnePiece · 7 pointsr/financialindependence
  1. Buy whole coffee beans from the store or a local roaster.
  2. Grind ~30-35 grams of beans per 16oz of water.
  3. There are two methods for steeping your ground coffee:
    1. Get a mason jar and mix your coffee grounds with water, close the mason jar, and let it steep in the fridge for 12-24 hours.
    2. Use a cold brew pitcher like this one and let the grounds steep in the fridge for 12-24 hours
  4. Strain cold brew through a coffee filter in a steel mesh over a pitcher.
  5. You now have a pitcher of cold brew coffee concentrate!
  6. When I make coffee I use a 1:1 ratio of the concentrate and water. I add a splash of half & half and enjoy!


    There are some really good videos about it on Youtube too. First time I tried cold brew I followed this video using the mason jar method and it turned out pretty good, just was a little messy to cleanup afterwards.


    As a side note, you do not necessarily need whole coffee beans to make cold brew. You can use pre-ground coffee to save some time and money, but using fresh whole beans usually produces a better tasting coffee. I use a basic hand operated coffee grinder.
u/dustinyo_ · 7 pointsr/Coffee

The Oxo Cold Brew kit is also on sale today. Anybody have experience with this one? Worth getting?

u/udafx · 6 pointsr/Coffee

Hario Mizudashi Cold Brewer is an amazing product for cold brew coffee. well worth the ~$25.

To brew I use 100g coffee for the full 1000ml and let sit in the fridge for 12-18 hours.

u/tdeeez · 6 pointsr/Coffee
u/ticktocktoe · 6 pointsr/Coffee

Yeah, and costco bulk whole bean stuff is great if you drink a lot of it.

I have a half gallon mason jar (well 2 of them) - Amazon

A mesh basket insert. Amazon, this one works great for me

Grind whatever coffee I have - usually like I said, the big ass bags of costco house blend or whatever. But occasionally just coffee I want to get rid of (current batch is being made with Peru Norte because I didnt care for it).

  • ~120g of corase coffee (use a ~#20+ on my Encore)

  • Use room temp tap water to pour through grounds/basket into mason jar until water reaches the 'neck' part, or just above.

  • Stick in fridge for 24hrs

  • Swish around once or twice during the process

  • Remove basket and let drain for a minute or two. Top off with tap water back up to neck of jar.

  • PRO TIP: Dont dispose of 120g+ of coarse grounds down the garbage disposal, you may or may not clog the hose that goes to the washing machine.

    I love my pour overs and espresso and french press and whatever, but nothing beats the convininece of a good cold brew when heading out the door in the morning, especially when its still hot/warm.
u/xenonsupra · 5 pointsr/Coffee

I like my Hario Mizudashi a lot. Makes about 1000mL per batch. Really easy and delicious. I do a coarse grind, cold bloom, and 36 hours in the fridge. I've done 12/24 hours batches and they are very good too, I just prefer the 36.

u/Cjisohsocool · 5 pointsr/Coffee

Check out the hario mizudashi, it's super simple and the filter is really fine so no sediment

u/kjohtx · 5 pointsr/intermittentfasting

I bought a $20 pitcher on Amazon and make cold brew at home. Prep it the night before, put it in the fridge, and you’re good to go in the morning. Linked to Amazon below.

Takeya 10310 Patented Deluxe Cold Brew Iced Coffee Maker with Airtight Lid & Silicone Handle, 1 Quart, Black - Made in USA BPA-Free Dishwasher-Safe

u/not_thrilled · 5 pointsr/Coffee

On the cold brew note, I picked up a Tayeka Cold Brew Maker (linked to Amazon, but I bought it at Natural Grocers). it's nothing you couldn't do with a nut milk bag or french press or whatever, but it sure beats adding the grounds directly to water and then trying to filter them out. Also, Trader Joe's has/had a bag of cold brew coffee bags, like big teabags. I had to steep for 24 hours instead of the much shorter time they list, but it tastes pretty good for pre-ground coffee. I use one bag to a quart mason jar.

u/towehaal · 5 pointsr/cocktails

If you like cold brew get something like this it makes it super easy (but overnight).

u/rothan · 5 pointsr/Coffee

Check out Cold Brew. Everyone here will give you their favorite method, but this is what I ended up with.

I bought the Hario, and cannot compliment it enough in the short time I have owned it.

Cheap cheap cheap investment. I spend my money on whole beans, get them ground, and go. I recommend steeping beans with room temp water for 8-12hrs, then remove grounds and chill. I mix 1/3 cup coffee "concentrate" with 2/3 cup water, over ice. This produces a strong, but not bitter black cup for me, reliably.

u/cblace · 5 pointsr/blogsnark

my sister got me this coffee pot for christmas this year. you fill it with coffee grounds and let it steep over night then use that as a base and cut it with water when you make cups of coffee. it works super well and makes a lot of coffee. i'm obsessed with it!

u/crxxx1 · 5 pointsr/Coffee

I have this Hario Cold Brew maker. I've had it for about a year. It works great. I recently ordered this mason jar brewer made by County Line Kitchen to make a larger quantity.

u/coffeecoffeecoffee90 · 5 pointsr/proED

Where do you live? If you have Trader Joe's their cold brewed concentrate is amazing. I have it almost every morning in the summer and do 1/3 coffee, 1/3 water, and 1/3 almond milk plus a packet of splenda and the tiniest bit of flavored sugar free syrup.

If not you can make cold brew coffee at home with a pitcher. I have this one.

u/burrito-boy · 5 pointsr/Earwolf

This episode actually made me go out and buy an iced coffee today. Although the cafe I bought it from made it by adding hot coffee to a pile of ice in a plastic cup, which is a big no-no that they bring up in this episode, haha.

I think maybe I'll buy one of those OXO cold brew coffee makers that Sean speaks highly of in this episode. I'm a caffeine addict, so this is right up my alley.

u/CanineChamp · 5 pointsr/Coffee

I use this: OXO Good Grips Cold Brew Coffee Maker

Coarse ground espresso beans. 1 ounce of coffee for every 8 fl ounces(1 cup) of water. I steep 14 hours room temperature or 24 hours refrigerated. I serve 1 part coffee: 2 parts water.

I typically prepare 5 ounces coffee: 5 cups of water. It yields 4 cups concentrate.

u/70mmArabica · 5 pointsr/Coffee

I’d try using either: a mason jar mesh or a beer making hop sock first, then using a Chemex filter.

Me personally I preferred the mesh filter over the sock, but both did there job

Edit: the links above mainly serve as examples of what I’m talking about rather than the exact brand I recommend

u/Esquired · 4 pointsr/Coffee

I'm not really sure what an "iced coffee blender" is. Are you talking about making iced coffee, or frappuccinos (blended coffee-like drinks)?

If you mean regular iced coffee, you really don't need to spend $150. You need a decent grinder and a cold-brew system like this one.

Also, make iced coffee ice cubes or put your glass(es) in the freezer to prevent dilution.

As far as flavors, you may be in the wrong subreddit for that kind of question. You could try a decent mocha powder like the kind that Intelligentsia offers because it mixes well with espresso, but honestly, the coffee should really be allowed to speak for itself.

"Flavors" like caramel mask the taste of mediocre (or worse) coffee with sugar and artificial sweeteners. Trust me, I worked at Starbucks and looked at the ingredients in those syrups. If you need those syrups to enjoy the coffee, there's really no point in shelling out more money for better coffee or equipment.

u/straddotcpp · 4 pointsr/Coffee

Kind of looks like a much smaller version of

I forget the motivations, but if you search there was a thread recently discussing Japanese Ice drip coffee vs conventional. I think it was meant to be even smoother.

u/Trollatio_Caine · 4 pointsr/breakingbad

While it is certainly not the same as Gale's setup, you can always pick up this coffee maker.

Supposedly it makes a good cup, and it looks damn cool.

u/idevil17 · 4 pointsr/QMEE

amazon ,
follow this link it gave me 5c, its a cold brew coffee machine

u/kerrielou73 · 4 pointsr/exmormon

French press and a kettle. I've never liked the taste of Keurig coffee and it takes up a lot more counter space. A french press can be kept in the cupboard. The glass ones likely won't even look like a coffee maker to your family. They'll know it is one, but it would probably be far less triggering. Plus it will give you all kinds of coffee street cred.

The other option is cold brew, but you have to have 2 or 3 of them so you can rotate. I love cold brew in the summer. The taste is totally different. So smooth. This one takes up about the same amount of space has a half gallon of milk.

u/Naughty_Taco · 4 pointsr/Coffee

I just use this from Amazon.

Full the filter, submerge and let it sit in the fridge for about a day. To drink I usually do 1/3 to 1/2 brew, add ice and water & enjoy!

u/snappuccino · 4 pointsr/Coffee

I'm starting to realize from a lot of these ratios that some tastes are very different! I'm sure that a "recommended" ratio is out there but an ideal ratio is what tastes best to you.

As you've noticed, you definitely need to increase your steep time, especially if you're using the fridge.

I've tried many methods but the one I've been using for a while now is the following (just a suggestion if you're into that sort of thing):

  1. Purchased a cereal keeper, a dispenser, and a CoffeeSock.

  2. I grind up what equates to 12-13 ounces based on 3, "18 cup" grind cycles in my burr grinder at a coarse setting (weighed multiple times to make sure). Most ground coffee comes in 12 oz in the supermarket so it's convenient if you're doing a bigger batch.
  3. Add this to the cereal keeper and add water up to the first line. It's probably close to 1.25 gallons.
  4. Let sit for 24 hours at room temp. I'll generally grind + start the steep when I get home from work and then filter the next day at the same time.
  5. Drain from the cereal keeper into my dispenser through the CoffeeSock. I hang the coffee sock from a cabinet handle and slowly put it through. It produces a very clean product.
  6. Store in the fridge and drink it all week! My girlfriend and I will drill through one batch in a week easy.

    I was very skeptical about the CoffeeSock's ability to filter properly as I was using Chemex filters before this which obviously filters well. I spoke to CoffeeSock about this and they said "you will pass some fine silt only" and they were correct, much to my surprise.

    The french press definitely had some fine grinds coming out of it, as did most of the popular products I've tried. Some people don't mind this but I did. :)

    The product tastes fantastic, in my opinion, and comparable to the concentration of many shops I've purchased cold brew from. Just play around and at some point you'll settle on the method that works for you.

    Happy brewing!
u/BarryGibbs_Teeth · 4 pointsr/barstoolsports

I’ve got this one works well and is easy to clean but wish I had gotten the 2 Quart size.

u/Tree_of_Whoa · 4 pointsr/Edmonton

Couple of options - you could go the cold brew route and buy something like this. That way you can keep cold brew in your fridge. Basically just take your coffee grounds, put them into the brewer for half a day or so and it's ready to go.

Secondly, you could always go the Vietnamese iced coffee route. My favourite way of doing iced coffee. That being said, I think the key is the evaporated milk. You can get a Vietnamese coffee filter on Amazon pretty easily.

u/Sarahadeline · 4 pointsr/AskWomen

This might change your life. We bought [this] (Hario Mizudashi Cold Brew Iced Coffee Pot/Maker (1000ml, Brown) one on Amazon. It took a while to arrive (maybe two weeks?) but it's worth the wait. You just fill the filter with grounds, pour cold water in so it seeps through the grounds, and put it in the fridge overnight. Bam fresh iced coffee every morning.

We now have both iced and hot every day. We drink a lot of coffee...

u/ZeOppositeOfProgress · 4 pointsr/Coffee

I don't really understand your question: you want a hot cold brew? You want a cold brew but want it warmer than it currently is?

If you're looking for a solid cold brew, I have the 1000ml Hario Cold Brew pot and this recipe is golden:

Pour 108g of coffee into the filter then place the filter in the pot. Pour filtered water through this filter until it reaches about a quarter inch from the top. Let it sit for 12-18 hours in the fridge. Remove the filter and discard the coffee. You now have a good concentrated base for iced coffee.

I plop a square ice cube in a glass, pour the concentrate and filtered water into the glass at a ratio of 1:1. I drink mine black but if you add cream/milk/flavoring, then change up your water with a whatever mix you want. Add sugar in at the end. Since this is cold, I recommend syrups over crystal sugar as you may find the crystal sugar settling at the bottom.

Been doing this for a year and have settled on this recipe being my fav. Good luck!

u/bliffer · 3 pointsr/Coffee
u/FruitByTheCubit · 3 pointsr/ChapoTrapHouse

I just use it for regular coffee. Use a Filtron to make a carafe of concentrate, then all you have to do is pour a little and add hot water from an electric tea kettle. You can also use the concentrate to make passable lattes by heating milk in the microwave and shaking it up to get it foamy.

u/ChatGarou · 3 pointsr/AskReddit

flipfold - Saves me half an hour of folding every laundry day.

rice cooker/steamer - I use it every day to either cook rice or steam meat or vegetables.

Ice Tea Maker - This was a wedding gift. Never would have bought it for myself because "How hard is it to put a tea bag in boiling water?" But it's another thing I use every day. Steeps perfectly every time and I don't have to keep an eye on it. Really helps me cut way down on soda when I always have fresh tea in the fridge.

u/nicksws6 · 3 pointsr/til

I use a regular kettle or Iced tea maker

I think most Americans don't use one because most people have a dedicated coffee or tea maker. Or just go to Starbucks.

u/AFlockOfTySegalls · 3 pointsr/nfl

Obviously I don't know how you make your cold brew. But I recently purchased one of these Hario cold brew makers. 80G in, and a 24hr extraction (for me) and it lasts me the week.

No longer do I have to worry about making it every day with my baby french press. I do hate that my Bonavita drip isn't being used right now. But winter might come again.

u/jessalon · 3 pointsr/keto

Congrats. Dude I used string cheese for snacking. And I'd literally THINK I was hungry and go get a piece of cheese and then I'd bite into it and realize... I'm not really that hungry. And put half of it back.

How bad was your carb flu?

Here's a tip for breakfast. I just use this

To make my coffee over night. I pour it in a nalgene bottle with ice and dump in some heavy whipping cream. I use Kicking Horse's 454 horsepower dark roast. It's amazing.

u/Necrofridge · 3 pointsr/Coffee

Hario Iced Coffee Maker? You can be happy you don't have to grind 120gr of coffee by hand.
Incredible cheap and makes pretty good tasting iced coffee. No need to dilute it afterwards or anything. Only downside: You have to fill it every time you use it, otherwise the immersion filter isn't immersed.

u/nickbahhh · 3 pointsr/cafe

Not really, the way my pot is set up makes it super simple. Fill it up with water(1000ml), add coarse grind coffee to the top of the filter basket (~80g). Sit it on the counter or in the fridge for about a day.

Best $23 I have spent on something coffee related.

I will also say that good cold brew can be made with less than premium beans. Sure good beans will yield a better cup, but $10/lb stuff will do just fine. Especially if you are like me and add a little cream or half and half with ice.

u/jackalopexs20 · 3 pointsr/EatCheapAndHealthy

Should do a fine job if you grind your beans pretty coarsely. If it didn't, you could always put a coffee filter over the jar and then put the strainer on over that.

Of course, you could skip the Mason jar component completely and get one of these fellas. They're great. But I live in the South where Mason jars flow freely from the mountains, so the jar method has always worked for me.

u/JasonMaloney101 · 3 pointsr/NewOrleans

Almost every major coffee house that makes New Orleans style cold brew uses the Commercial Toddy Maker, including CC's Community Coffee, PJ's Coffee, and even Starbucks. This is a larger variant of the Toddy Cold Brew System which many of us use at home.

If you want traditional, smooth New Orleans style cold brew, you'll want to use a Viennese blend or something close to it. No, not Vietnamese; Viennese, as in Vienna. Some people like to do Ethiopian (Starbucks even used it when they were first trialing their cold brew in your area, but they ultimately switched to something much closer to Viennese-style), but as long as you stay away from bright flavors (particularly citrus), you should be fine. Most places will also add a dash of Mexican Vanilla as well.

The original Toddy system is designed to reduce the amount of oils extracted from the coffee grounds. The absence of heat already does this to an extent, but you also have to make an effort to layer in the water in a controlled fashion. Disturb the coffee grounds too much, and the filter disc will clog. It looks like they're now offering paper filters (similar to what the commercial system uses) to address this issue.

IIRC nine cups of water yields six cups of concentrate. You'll want to cut that 1:1 with water at serving time.


The other popular variant, Kyoto style cold brew, is made using a setup that resembles lab equipment.

u/persianrug · 3 pointsr/Coffee
u/number114 · 3 pointsr/Coffee

Google Kyoto drip tower, I have the one below:

It makes good cold brew or you can make your own with a good chem lab supply catalog.

u/gritty_fitness · 3 pointsr/MealPrepSunday

I have a [Takeya] ( cold brew pitcher I got from Amazon. 17 bucks, works great!

u/keevenowski · 3 pointsr/Homebrewing

Well for what’s it worth, here is my recipe/process. Feel free to give it a shot or modify as you see fit :)


Cold Brew Maker:

Cold Brew Process: Fill it up with coarse ground beans. Add cold water and put in fridge for 24hrs. Remove from fridge and pull out infuser.

Coffee Addition Process: Brew/ferment as you normally would. Keg beer, pour entire contents of cold brew into keg (30ish fl oz). Purge of air, shake shake shake. Carb.

Definitely a strong coffee flavor, but it’s balanced and not overpowering. Always the quickest keg to go!

u/Snarm · 3 pointsr/minimalism

We have a cold brew pitcher that I freaking LOVE. If this is your preferred method of coffeeing, it's bomb to be able to make it at home without making a giant mess.

u/bentron4000 · 3 pointsr/Coffee

I tried the paper filter and pitcher route, and then the giant tea bag route, and they worked fine. Then I bought a pitcher specifically for cold brew and it makes the clean up so much easier.

This is similar to what I have, and I would highly recommend it:

Takeya Cold Brew Iced Coffee Maker, 1-Quart, Black

u/KittyVector · 3 pointsr/nursing

I make cold-brew iced coffee with one of these []. I don't like hot coffee. I have a cup to wake up, do my routine, and head to work night shift 12 hrs.

I stop and get a iced coffee at Dunkin Donuts (traditional, not cold-brew) which I sip at work. I finish it by 9 or 10pm, then don't have any more caffeine. That will keep me awake through until the end of my shift. If I have caffeine any later, I'll have trouble sleeping.

u/adamkw94 · 3 pointsr/cscareerquestions

Iced coffee is way better. If you don't have ice You should buy a cold brew pitcher and make your own. I recently started doing this, taste great with any dark roast coffee. I carry it in my backpack on the way to the office

u/GamblingMan610 · 3 pointsr/barstoolsports

not the exact model, but a similar concept

overnight infuser. put the coffee in the water, let sit overnight and it's great in the AM

u/kittyjam · 3 pointsr/stepparents

I invested in this for cold brew concentrate. WORTH IT!!

u/SolAlliance · 3 pointsr/coldbrew

Nothing glamorous but this brews cold coffee and is easy.

She might want to take an extra step at the end and filter through a paper filter to catch smaller grains. But overall a good easy product to use.

There a lot of more expensive options out on the market, just depends on what you are looking for in a brewer.

Search this subreddit for takeya and you can read about everyone else’s experiences.

u/Whaty0urname · 3 pointsr/povertyfinance

I got myself one of these. Cuts down on prep and cleanup time immensely.

u/coffee_SS · 3 pointsr/SubredditSimulator

I have a Takeya, I don't make $60 an hour and a half ago I think?

u/Domje · 3 pointsr/Coffee

I use a Mizudashi and make cold brew every week, good for those hot mornings/aftys when you want a nice cold coffee. The other option is to brew espresso over ice then add your or water to it. Personally prefer a cold brew as I don't get any comedown from it, and it tastes great!

u/thegassypanda · 3 pointsr/Coffee

I love the porlex. Grinding 80 grams isn't terrible, I like the burn in my arm! and I really like this thing Hario Mizudashi it looks like they even have a 600ml model. I have the 1000mL and make a pot for the week and just leave it in the fridge.

u/Meximelty · 3 pointsr/AeroPress

I use a Hario cold brewer. Hario"Mizudashi" Cold Brew Coffee Pot, 1000ml, Brown

u/Amator · 3 pointsr/Coffee

This is correct. In the past I just used mason jars and filtered the resulting sludge through an automatic-drip filter. It works fine but cleanup is a bit of a pain. I paid $15 for this cold brew system and it was worth it to me as it is much easier to clean up so now, so I make cold brew once a week instead of once a month.

u/veni-veni-veni · 3 pointsr/asianamerican

I have the OXO Cold Brew system. I really like it. I used to use a mason jar and it's functional, but more messy. I am super happy I got it. I bought mine at Marshals for $30 but I think they are $50 on amazon. Found it

It comes with a steel mesh filter and a few paper filters. I have been re-using the paper filters so they last longer. So far they have held up quite well.

u/rabidfurby · 3 pointsr/personalfinance

If we want to turn this into an /r/frugal thread about the absolute cheapest way to make coffee - you can get a cold brew setup at home for less than $50 (Toddy is "the original"; OXO makes a similar system). Cold brew tends to be more forgiving of low-quality beans than hot brewed, and the resulting concentrate can be kept in the fridge for at least a week before it goes bad.

u/GoT43894389 · 3 pointsr/todayilearned

You get more flavor out of the drip ones too. I saw that the cold version of the drip coffee is pretty convenient since you can make a batch that you can use for a week. It's acidity is lower, you get more flavor since it's a slower brew(overnight), and it's great for people who like iced coffee over hot.

u/homebeach · 3 pointsr/coldbrew

Must thank /u/nom_deguerre for the comments made in this [thread] (

Been experimenting for several weeks using the ball jar and paper filter method and had amazing beginners luck. Really rich pleasant coffee, actually slightly sweet, no acid. So convinced I was on the right track I bought one of these 64oz Cold Brewer from Amazon. First batch NOPE! All the little subtle flavors were gone. None of the little interesting nuances that made it taste like a coffee shop were gone. The stainless steel sleeve that filters the grounds from the brew had to be the culprit as that is the only thing I did different. Made 2 more small batches to confirm and the Stainless Steel Filter batch was tasteless. So now I roughly follow their ratio of two cups coarsely ground beans and fill the large Ball Jar to the top. Tightly closed I shake it it a few times the first day, top it off as the coffee absorbs some of the water and then leave it in a shady corner for 16 to 24 hours. Filter it with paper filters into smaller Ball jars and cut with water, milk, or just ice for ice coffee. Makes enough coffee to last the two of us several days. This is the first recipe I used to make the little batches NYTimes but adjust everything till you find it to be to your liking.

tldnr: filtered water, coarse grind, no metal, paper filters.

u/inebriates · 3 pointsr/keto

Unhelpful, I know...but I've never tried it because (like the others mentioned) homemade BPC has no carbs, tastes great, and is super cheap/easy.

There's also no magic to making cold brew coffee. I've been making my own using this pitcher for years and it's fantastic. If you just want to try before you buy, you can soak coffee grounds in a mason jar in the refrigerator over night and let it filter out in the morning. It's a hassle, but makes it just the same.

u/FlyingDonkeyBoy · 3 pointsr/Coffee

Maybe I’m misinterpreting something here but it sounds like convenience and ease are big factors (nothing wrong with that). If so, get some cold brew maker such as Coffee Bear It’s impossible to make in 5 minutes but it takes about that much active work and then it’s ready in 12-24 hours

u/IUindy · 3 pointsr/Coffee

I have been using this one for over a year and it has been great! Very easy to keep clean and as long as your using course grounds, no issues with sludge getting into the coffee.

u/splishtastic · 2 pointsr/Coffee

Cold brew at home is pretty easy to tackle.

There are a number of cold brew contraptions you can buy to ease and simplify the transition between steeping and drinking.

  • Filtron
  • Toddy

    Alternatively, if you own a french press, then the results from that are just as good. Throw the grounds in, add water, plunge after X hours.

    General steps:

  1. Medium coarse grind of beans - a middle of the road coffee is fine (even a few weeks out), here you don't need your most expensive or freshest free-range cage-free single origin.
  2. Ratio of water:coffee - experiment here as you do your batches, but 4:1 (by weight) is a decent starting point for a coffee concentrate that you can then dilute with water/milk and syrups as desired.
  3. Pour measured out water over grounds.
  4. Stir the mixture a bit to even out the coverage.
  5. Let the container sit for 12 hours at room temperature. (24 hours if done in the fridge)
  6. Strain, dilute to taste and serve.

Is all you want to make coffee-wise cold brew? Forever? If so, then you can get away with a grinder that I'd never recommend for hot coffee because of its uneven particle distribution -- this one (use an always-available 20% off coupon). For cold brew, you don't have to worry so much about overextraction.

Then get the Filtron, and you're all set.

If you might want to someday do hot coffee, I'd get a better grinder -- this one. And a kettle and a kitchen scale.

u/bgorsh · 2 pointsr/Coffee

If you're buying a present for your husband, just get him a filtron. It's very easy to use and not too expensive. For beans, I like to use a blend. Lately, I've been using Verve's StreetLevel. It's $15 and free shipping. If you don't have a grinder, you can also order it coarsely ground. While its not ideal to order preground, they ship it really quickly and I don't think it makes much of a difference in cold brew.

THIS is the cold brew pot I bought and loved 4 years ago - it's now at my old office.

I bought something else later that I didn't like as much - then broke that one 2 years ago. While the method I'm using now works like a charm - in part since I have a metal filter very similar to the one they're using here - I wouldn't mind one of these as well one of these days.

Thanks! Folks are ragging on me for not knowing any better, I guess I came off as offensive or something. I was gifted one of these, and wondering if an aeropress would produce a better cup of coffee or not.

A key advantage between these two seems to be the speed component, but you can make a larger batch with what I have (if you are willing to wait 8 hours).

I use the Hario Mizudashi pitcher but you can buy these pretty neat socks from places like HappyMug that are perfect for occasional drinkers of the deep, cold black. As /u/Shoeshiner_boy pointed out, you can just dial back the brewing time to compensate for the smaller grind.

(I'm sure others here can offer up solutions that use cheesecloth or something similar.)


u/swroasting · 2 pointsr/Coffee

I have tried quite a few different methods, but not this one. After a quick look at the specs: It's a pretty simple immersion method with a stainless steel mesh filter and a drain/stop lever. Basically, it's a 1L Clever dripper with a stainless mesh filter. I wouldn't pay $50 for it.

Save over half your money and get a 1L Hario Mizudashi or save all of your money, use a mason jar, and pour it through your own filter.

u/ThomasDidymus · 2 pointsr/exmormon

Like those before me, and many that will come after me, I use something akin to a nut milk bag to do the initial brew (purchased at a local beer brewing supply shop), then filter through paper filters to get the "fines" out. It isn't too painful, but I do go through a handful of paper filters to avoid the clogging that slows things down.

I'm also wondering how to make this process more efficient - I know there are one-stop solutions that companies make and sell, but I suppose I like getting my hands dirty, as it were, since it seems to add something to my enjoyment of the results. Relevant quote:

> "If you accomplish something good with hard work, the labor passes quickly, but the good endures; if you do something shameful in pursuit of pleasure, the pleasure passes quickly, but the shame endures." — Gaius Musonius Rufus, Fragment 51

The former referring to making my own cold brew, the latter referring to buying from Starbucks. ;) HA!

Anyway, I'll probably keep doing it the way I am, because I'm a glutton for punishment or something. Buying one of those cold brew devices like I linked to would save time, but what would I do with that time? Get in some kind of trouble, no doubt. Best avoid that! ;)

u/vishuno · 2 pointsr/Coffee

I have this Takeya cold brew pitcher that works well. It's plastic so it won't break like glass and the filter looks really similar to the Mizudashi so grind size shouldn't be an issue.

I don't have experience using other cold brew methods so I don't know what would make it a "good" one but I've been happy with this one.

u/auralScapes · 2 pointsr/AboveandBeyond

I typically do a 1:5 or 1:6 ratio of grinds to water, ground coarse (but not too coarse, it wont steep well). I used to just make it in my french press at room temp with plastic wrap over it, stir occasionally, and then strain through a coffee filter into a mason jar to toss in the fridge. Typically between 17-24 hours. Recently I received a Takeya Cold Brew as a gift and it has made the process a bit more streamlined.

I don’t have it down to quite an exact science yet, I have good batches and meh batches. I started making my own back in the fall when I bought the NitroPress. All in all it saves money and allows me to experiment with different flavors and methods. Keep at it, I find it makes the good batches all the more satisfying!

It all depends on what your husband likes. The vast majority of coffee drinkers love Keurig machines as they're super easy, quick, single serve, no mess, and there are unlimited options of different K-Cups.

If he likes regular coffee or flavored coffee, get him a Keurig machine like this K55 on Amazon or check out the Best Selling Single Serve Brewers. Keurig machines are quick, easy, and no mess. I use mine every day. Yes, I have other machines for fancy drinks but the Keurig is the best for regular, every day coffee, especially when I'm busy. I prefer iced coffee so I have a Keurig that makes hot or cold coffee, but most machines are hot only. There are thousands of different kinds of K-Cups out there and some that serve beverages other than coffee like hot cocoa, chocolate milk, cider, all different kinds of teas, and I think I even saw some lemonade or some type of lemon drink. If your husband likes mocha Frappuccinos, he would probably like Starbucks mocha latte K-Cups and Gevalia mocha latte K-Cups. Keurig works well for all different types of preferences.

If he likes lattes, espresso, mocha, or other flavored coffee-based drinks, check out the NesCafe line of Nespresso and line of Dolce Gusto machines like the Dolce Gusto Genio. The Dolce Gusto line is much simpler than the Nepresso machines and has more flavored drinks. If your husband likes mocha, you could get these. I have the Genio along with my Keurig and a few other coffee machines. The Dolce Gusto machines are great but they are more for fancy drinks, not regular coffee. I should also add the cups for Dolce Gusto machines are far more expensive per serving than K-Cups, there are far less flavors/options versus K-Cups, and they don't sell them in stores so you have to buy them online.

If he already has a Keurig or wants something a bit fancier, get him a French press like these on Amazon.

If he likes cold/iced coffee, you could get him a cold brewer like this.

I bought a similar hario cold brewer:
a few months ago and while it's convenient with no mess, I couldn't make as strong of a concentrate as I prefer. The filter just isn't big enough to hold all the grounds for 1000ml of water. The water also doesn't touch the very top of the filter, so I felt I had a crummy extraction. It's still a good product overall but unfortunately not for me.

u/SlightlyControversal · 2 pointsr/MealPrepSunday

Not gonna lie, it may have been dark roast. My husband picks it up and also brews the coffee, so I haven’t looked closely at the packaging. It’s definitely the tacky orange Dunkin bag though.

We don’t tend to like sour or green flavored beans, but prefer deeper notes and darker roasts. I’d love to hear your suggestions, fellow cold brewers!

Cold brew coffee is stupid cheap to make. Get one of these (NOT an affiliate link) and a giant tin of ground coffee.

You are totally overthinking the cooking thing.

u/Frankshungry · 2 pointsr/philadelphia

That’s an interesting way to do it and makes sense.

If you want to do essentially the same thing, with easy cleanup and more consistent quality, get a Hario pot.

Grind 80-100grams medium or medium corse.

if you want to be lazy, dump that all into the filter and just drop it into the pitcher already filled with filtered water. Let it sit for about 24 hours on the counter. It won’t fully extract all the coffee, but it is technically a cold brew. It just won’t be as concentrated as you might hope. Don’t put it in the fridge if you use this lazy approach. It will slow down the extraction even more and taste really weak. I did it like this for a while, then I learned.

A better way is to add about 25-30g at a time into the filter, slowly pouring water over it until it’s drained through, add more coffee and repeat to desired dose (80-100g). The pitcher should be nearly full after doing this—takes about 5 minutes—the water drips through slowly. You can mix it a little bit if you want, but you don’t really need to end it just makes a mess. Leave it sit on the counter for 12 to 24 hours. Remove the filter and dump it. You’ll have about 1 L of “concentrated” cold brew. Some people dilute it, these people are not to be trusted.

Experiment with different types of coffee until you find one you like. Try a light or medium roast. It shouldn’t be bitter since most of the bitterness in coffee comes from (over extracting with) heat—I think. But some dark roasts can be bitter. I use a light or medium roast, freshly ground, and the cold brew brings out the usually subtle chocolate notes, strong fruits, and just smooth coffee.

With this recipe, you’ll get three to four 1 Liter pitchers per 12oz bag of coffee. It’s not much more expensive to make when you remove the brew time and counter/fridge space it takes up.

Sorry in advance because if you do this. All other coffee shop cold brew soon become disappointing,

If you really want to be tweaking, use the cold brew to make ice cubes.

u/Wolf_Craft · 2 pointsr/Coffee

This is not the exact one I ordered as Amazon no longer has the one I bought listed. However this is close enough. The filter is smaller but honestly sometimes I think my coffee is REALLY strong and I wish the filter was smaller. I do wonder if I'm going through beans unnecessary quickly in exchange for super effective coffee. So there's that.

The one I purchased came with an extra filter and was only $16. I see nice looking ones for $30 but like... Why? I dunno. You leave coffee soaking in the fridge. Does the container make a difference if you're achieving a good extraction? Maybe someone will tell me.

As always, filtered water. Really notice a difference in my cold brew with sink water. Not happy.

u/dangerpigeon2 · 2 pointsr/DIY

It does take a long time but you aren't actually doing anything, it just sits on your counter. I typically make it at night and then its ready in the morning. Plus you're making 1-2 liters of coffee which should last you 3 or 4 days minimum unless you're a serious addict.

And honestly if I can get a cheap version of a blended drink without tasting much if any coffee I'd be happy. Or at least the bitter stuff I associate with black coffee.

What if I used Xanthan Gum instead of a frappe powder and solely used my own ingredients for the rest of it?

u/PandorNZ · 1 pointr/newzealand

Espresoo Workshop in Britomart does a pretty great cold brew - was up there recently from Christchurch (where our options are pretty much brew-your-own) and was very impressed. I'd recommend you give them a go if you're in the CBD.

In terms of devices - I haven't heard of the Bruer but we use the Hario brew pot and it does the trick, was cheap(ish) to ship to NZ as well...

u/mikesam37 · 1 pointr/Coffee

I just use this and have no complaints.


u/Klein_TK · 1 pointr/Coffee

Theres a specific pitcher/filter combo you can get in order to make cold brew. I have one, but ill have to go find it before I can give you a specific brand name or something. You just put the grinds in the filter, pour filtered water in the pitcher, and let it extract overnight in the fridge. Be sure to allow at least 12 hrs of time for the water to extract the coffee.

EDIT: This is what I have Anything similar will have the capabilities of making some good cold brew.

u/lostPixels · 1 pointr/Coffee

I recommend this thing. Way cheaper than the Toddy and consistently makes amazing cold brew:

u/testdex · 1 pointr/Coffee

Are these not available stateside?

It's just a Hario pitcher with a nice filter, but it makes pretty darn good iced coffee from cold water. (I'd guess it's lower caffeine as well, which may be a good thing in summer, or not.)

u/chthonist · 1 pointr/Coffee

It definitely looks to be a V60 + carafe + ice container as you say. Hario also makes a similar cold-brew pitcher that I recommend if you'd like to try that method.

u/mycoffeeaccount · 1 pointr/Coffee

I like cold drip personally. Give something like this a try if you're looking to use higher end coffees for something with a cleaner sweeter more delicate flavor. Toddy extractions can make great coffee taste brackish, malty and plain. I have something like this and love it.

u/Alyscupcakes · 1 pointr/Coffee

You could DIY a Kyoto drip iced coffee machine to be XTra tall.

So take the glass from an existing drip coffee device ( )

But then redo the structure to be 7 feet tall. Stand on a ladder, to make a cup of coffee that is sitting on the floor.

u/pockified · 1 pointr/tea

A custom/handmade version of the Japanese cold drip towers. Cold brew is one of my favorite brewing methods for coffee, and cold drip is a whole other level! Not sure if I could use it for tea, but I am so happy to receive this (the drip tower had a permanent spot in my cart, but I knew I could never justify buying it). I really love homemade gifts.

I gifted myself a pour-over coffee maker; I think it's better suited for tea since the metal filter is small enough for tea. The metal filter is too large on its own for coffee, and with a paper filter, still wasn't ideal. The 8-cup is on sale for $20 and the 6-cup is on sale for $15. Not too bad for that price for a pretty carafe and a metal filter that works both in-carafe and in-mug.

u/NicoC72 · 1 pointr/Coffee

Have you looked into cold brew? It takes way longer, so you won't want to brew a single cup at a time. This Takeya one is nothing more than rebox of one of their tea systems. The infuser even still says tea leaves on the bottom! None the less, it still works great as a pitcher (the infuser is removable), though I'm afraid I can't comment on how well it works as a cold brew setup as I haven't much experience with anything else.

u/junamuno84 · 1 pointr/intermittentfasting

Cold Brew is a good solution if regular coffee is too bitter for you. However, there are a few tips to avoid bitterness in cold brew. I recommend investing in a cold brew maker. and a coffee grinder. The grinder might be too much for some, but I love the result I get. Buy decent quality, whole bean coffee, grind it coarse (to the texture of corn meal), use filtered water. I start by adding a little bit of warm water (around 160 degrees) and the rest room temperature. Put it in the fridge for at least 24 hours, but no more than 48.

Interesting fact:i had scarlett fever at 32 weeks pregnant. I didnt even know it still existed and thought nothing of the rash until an elderly lady came in and told me i needed to go to the hospital then left. Had to give son meds to prepare for early birth and he was born 2 weeks later. I am still so thankful for her to come into my store that day. ♡♡♡♡

spoil me! - i would love to have a cold brew coffee maker. Currently just have a regular coffee maker but my favorite is cold coffee and this would make my life easier.

Mine's going pretty well. I've been making an effort to move into vegetarianism and trying to cook more/have more excellent food. I made a fantastic curried chickpea dish for dinner last night and packed the leftovers for lunch today. I always feel better when I pack my lunch instead of eating the crap overpriced food around work. Tonight I'm going to bake chocolate chip zucchini bread muffins.

I found a cold brew coffee carafe on Amazon a while back for $25 that I love link here. It's seriously so nice to wake up to delicious iced coffee in the summer, and it's already paid for itself if you think in terms of Starbucks $.

A TMI bonus to eating a lot of healthy food, veggies, and strong coffee? Best number 2's of my life. So regular, and so happy.

u/Punkereaux · 1 pointr/keto

Any course ground coffee (I like flavored coffees) will do. this is my coffee pitcher. Fill the basket with coffee, the pitcher with water (I use the water from my brita pitcher I keep in the fridge). Let it brew in the fridge overnight. Remove the grounds (so it doesn’t get bitter). Voila. Cold brew coffee.

u/galfriday612 · 1 pointr/povertyfinance

If you love iced coffee, get a cold brew pitcher of some sort! Then make ice cubes out of coffee as well. :)

u/badimojo · 1 pointr/washingtondc

Wholeheartedly agree with this suggestion! I bought this cold brew maker on Amazon for under $20 and use it religiously. It only makes a quart at a time, but you can dilute it 1:1 with water and it's still pretty strong. It's also not too large a profile, which is great if you share a fridge with roommates.

Only downside is that it takes a lot of coffee - 12-14 tbsp for one batch. However, this will be the case no matter where you get your cold brew from.

The food storage container/nut milk bag method is also a good way to make sun tea - for either coffee or tea, a glass half-gallon milk jug from Whole Foods does the trick perfectly.

u/Llygoden_Bach · 1 pointr/femalefashionadvice

I have this cheapo cold brew coffee maker from Amazon and exclusively use Starbucks pre-ground coffee. I add caramel syrup directly in the pitcher and it tastes delicious (I'm also not by any stretch a coffee aficionado so my tastes are pretty basic).

u/omair94 · 1 pointr/MaliciousCompliance

You should consider getting a cold brew container just for the sake of convenience. Not that they are necessary in any way (I used a random old jug for months) but the fact that you don't have to filter out the grounds makes it really easy. This is what I use:

u/xBrodysseus · 1 pointr/Coffee

I just ordered a Takeya cold brewer. There's also the Hario.

Both are Japanese companies, but they make a submerged cold brew, rather than a drip. Submerged is stronger and more robust, while a cold drip is "brighter" with enhanced flavor clarity.

u/GuyoFromOhio · 1 pointr/Coffee

I use this brewer:
Hario Mizudashi Cold Brew Iced Coffee Pot/Maker (1000ml, Brown)

It's pretty easy to use, just put about 100 grams of coffee in the filter, fill it up with water, stir, and put it in the fridge for 12-24 hours. To make my iced coffee I use a cup of cold brew, a cup of whole milk, and two tablespoons of either chocolate or caramel syrup. I've also mixed honey and caramel, it's pretty awesome.

u/dmizer · 1 pointr/japanlife

I know this is asking about store bought ice coffee, but this is ridiculously easy and cheap.

Just buy one of these. All you have to do is fill the steeper to the top of the filter screen with ground coffee of your choice, pour enough cold water so it comes to the top of your ground coffee and put it in the fridge to brew overnight. It takes about 8 to 10 hours. Wake up, pull the filter out, and pour yourself the absolute best glass of ice coffee you've ever had.

u/Piness · 1 pointr/funny

Doesn't have to be. Just get something like this to make inexpensive cold brew and keep the other ingredients at home. And you're set.

Hario Mizudashi Cold Brew Iced Coffee Pot/Maker (1000ml, Brown)

Advice to others: Don't be afraid to look around until you find beans you like. The selection out there is overwhelming. Also, you WILL save money, but it might take a while longer because you'll probably purchase a bean grinder when you want to try buying whole beans instead of ground, and then you'll want to try a few well reviewed expensive bags of beans instead of your usual. You may also become a coffee snob and get into arguments about pour over vs french press vs this process. Enjoy.

u/squeeowl · 1 pointr/Cooking

I use a manual grinder and a Hario cold brew pot, following the exact directions it calls for (80 grams of coarsely ground coffee, 8 hours).

The fun part is using different beans, the change in flavour profile from bean to bean is so much more noticeable than your standard hot brewed coffee.

Answer: While not totally responsive to your question, here is some helpful information. The decanter is 5.75 in. tall.

First you pour in 8 oz. this will be absorbed by the freshly grind coffee. Then you pour in 32 oz more. You will get about 32 oz after 12 hours of brewing. I get a little less (30 oz) of concentrated coffee. The decanter is marked 32 oz. Some people re-use the used coffee grinds for a second brew. I use 4 oz of concent… see more
By Peter Kiss on January 31, 2015

The others are correct: the decanter can hold 32 oz of concentrate.
The tank that contains the grounds and water (which eventually deposits the concentrate into the decanter) can hold 64 oz of water, in the absence of coffee grounds, so there is some room for additional water above the recommended 40 oz, if wanted.

Consider that one as if you break the jar, you can easily replace it instead of something proprietary. I have a friend who uses it and loves it.

u/2aislegarage · 1 pointr/keto

My all time favorite is cold brew - just throw grinds and water into the fridge the night before, and in the morning it’s the best thing ever. But I hate cleaning up my brew jar afterwards, so I rarely make it. I use Keurig instead - only one cup to wash after, and honestly I will reuse the same cup for an entire week without washing it.

Try cold brew, I think you might love it. (Best during summer months, obviously). I got my cold brew jar on Amazon.

I bought more Mason jars at Walmart (since their not proprietary for the strainer) and I'll cold brew a batch of coffee, pull the strainer and do a batch of cold brew tea.

u/Mitzy_r · 1 pointr/Coffee

Running the consentrate through a paper filer is a must to get rid of the fine sediment. I use a pour over Brewer actually as my final filter run, works perfect as a quick strainer and the cone filters.

This is what I use to brew:

I use 1.5 cups of grounds and fill the rest with water. A lot of cold brew receipes call for way to many grounds in my opinion.

I didn't care for the Toddy because of the special filters and plugs you have to keep around. Really they all serve the same function, you just need a process to get rid of those fine particles.

I look for a medium roast with a medium grind, I also buy pre ground. I never noticed a huge difference in whole beans versus pre ground, plus it's one less step. I also brew for 24-36 hours. I found going to 36 hours gave my cold coffee a little extra kick and flavor.

u/nittanyRAWRlion · 1 pointr/coldbrew

I use this mason jar and these bag filters. I fill up the filter bags full with fresh coarse-ground coffee, tie it, plop it in the jar, and let it sit 12-16 hours. It has turned out well with the few beans I've tried, yields a concentrate that I dilute 1:1 with water.

I used to use the steel mesh filter that came with that mason jar, but it lets through fine particulates from the grounds. You can probably get the jar for less, but you could probably use that and just pour through a filter without using the bags.

So... mess around with what you got, if it's too strong, water it down. Doesn't have to be a perfect science as long as it tastes good!

u/Rico_Agave · 1 pointr/himynameisjay

It's what we used before switching to "cold" brewing. We still have it, and use it when we forget to brew the night before. You can get a reusable filter for it.

u/sleeplessinohio · 1 pointr/coldbrew

I initially started with a big pitcher and some cheesecloth to make coffee bouquet garni, if you will. It worked just fine, even though one time I didn't tie it tight enough and ended up with coffee grounds all in my brew :') completely my fault, though. This method is cheap and it serves it's purpose. The only downside was I don't have a great deal of fridge space, so finding a spot tall enough for a giant pitcher was a struggle.

I just recently received a KitchenAid cold brew maker as a gift, which makes the process so much easier and less messy for me personally, lol. It comes in 28 and 38 oz, which is relatively small. It's also short enough to fit on any shelf in my fridge! In addition, it has a tap to pour a drink without having to get it out of the fridge. It's pretty convenient. Because it is so small, I'll probably have to brew twice a week, which is fine.

There are so many more methods than just these two. Try the cheapest route first and see if it works for you. Then later on, if ya feel like it you can splurge on a new machine. Or you can be like me and put it out there that you'd love to receive one for insert upcoming holiday here haha.

This saved my life and marriage 😂 I have tried making my own iced coffee for YEARS. Growing up in New England you are born with Dunkin donuts coffee in your blood. I like my iced coffee black and pretty strong (Dunkin is no longer strong enough for me) so I am pretty picky about the taste. I had tried a bunch of different techniques, brewer's, beans, etc. This brewer does require a lot of coffee but it has been the only thing in the 10 years on and off that I have tried, that works for me.

u/Steev182 · 1 pointr/Coffee

I'd definitely recommend cold brew if it's specifically for Iced Coffee. Just a big jug, coarse ground coffee and water, fridge for a day, get rid of the grounds and it's done.

I will say finding a way to get rid of the grounds is the worst part. I've settled on this fella, and so far I'm happy with it.

Regular filters take forever and clog up when trying to get the drink from the grounds, the reusable bags are a pig to clean, the throwaway bags pack the grounds too tightly so my last try with them was disappointingly weak.

One jar using 125g coffee lasts me a week, but I'm thinking of making two and bringing one into work with me.

I did try making iced coffee with instant coffee the way I made hot coffee, but it didn't dissolve properly. I then tried cooling the hot coffee, but it ended up weak and for some reason felt like coffee I neglected to drink while hot rather than Iced coffee.
