EASY TO USE Simply pour coarse ground coffee into the filter basket, add water and allow to steep for 24 to 48 hours. Remove the filter basket and discard the grounds and you have 1.5 quarts of delicious coffee concentrate. All components are dishwasher safe. CREATE CONCENTRATED BREW Our large filter basket allows a high ratio of coffee grounds to water to make a strong concentrate. The silicone seal allows you to shake the jar during the brewing process ensuring that all of the grounds are completely wetted. HIGH QUALITY MATERIALS Our jar is a Ball 2 quart mason jar made from durable soda lime glass. The filter is made from heavy gage, food grade stainless steel wire that will not bend or dent. LARGE AND VERSATILE BREWER The 2 quart jar will yield up to 1.5 quarts of coffee concentrate. Because we use a standard mason jar, you can add your own jar to the system to brew one batch while drinking another. This system can also be used to make cold brew tea or sun tea with loose leaf teas and infuse water with fruits or oils with spices. COLD BREWING BENEFITS Cold brewing coffee prevents the formations of acids that create bitterness and obscure the flavors of the coffee. The low acid content of the coffee is also a benefit for reflux sufferers. In addition, the stainless steel filter allows the aromatic oils of the beans that are removed by a paper filter to pass through into the coffee further improving the flavor.

1. First, for those of you on a municipal water system your water is probably chlorinated. Mine is, so before I start to make a batch I fill a big bowl with cold water and let it sit on the counter while I'm grinding the coffee beans. This lets the chlorine evaporate off, not that it would probably hurt anything but I'd rather not have it in my coffee. Those of you on a private well don't have to worry about it.
2. Next, grind your coffee beans to a medium grind. Pre-ground coffee would probably work but a lot of it would get through the strainer. Some will anyway regardless, but I just pour off the last slowly and discard any grounds that settle to the bottom.
3. Next, put the strainer and gasket in the jar and fill the strainer about half to 2/3 full of grounds. They'll expand as they get wet so any more than that will sit above the water level and get wasted. Pour the water slowly through the grounds in the strainer when filling the container to the fill line.
4. Don't put the cover on too tight, especially if you're going to be putting in the fridge. The rubber gaskets get hard when they get cold so if you really tighten them you'll have a pretty hard time getting the cover off to take the grounds out before use.
5. There are a few factors in how strong the final brew is. First is the coffee beans you use, I use a medium or breakfast blend. Next is the brewing time, I usually go 15-20 hours. Finally, you can affect the brew by where you let it sit. You'll get stronger coffee if you let it sit at room temperature as opposed to in the fridge. I do a mix of both depending on when I start. If I make a batch in the morning I'll let it sit on the counter for several hours and then put it in the fridge overnight. If I make a batch in the afternoon I just let it sit on the counter overnight.
Finally, take the cover off and remove the strainer and grounds. I drink the coffee straight up as I use a medium blend, if it's too strong you can always dilute it as you wish. After drinking cold brew for a while, it's amazing how harsh hot-brewed coffee tastes now. I'll never go back.
Pretty much all of the other brewing jugs I saw were tall and narrow, meaning that you could accidentally tip it out of the fridge door if opened too quickly. Many also had glass handles and lots of the comments mentioned that the handle broke after only a few uses. The narrow shape would likely have been a pain to wash them by hand as my hands are quite big. Also none of the others seemed to have a consistent seal since the spouts were often open to the air, causing the fridge air to affect the taste.
None of the above are issues with this one though. I've been using it for the past month now (made about 4 brews so far) and it's been great! It's wide-mouthed which makes it easy to clean, the glass is thick with no thin handle to break and there's a good silicone seal in both the filter and the lid to keep it fresh (also great for transporting it in the car!). The mesh is great too, very fine holes and sturdy. My only complaint would be that it's not that large, but it makes enough for 3-4 mugs, though perhaps if it was any larger it may not fit in the fridge door, or cause it to have the aforementioned problem of falling out of the fridge door if opened sharply, so maybe it's for the best that it's the size that it is.
Highly recommend this over ALL of the other designs, especially as it costs the same as them (~£25 after postage/import taxes).
Note: this is the 1 quart (about a litre) jar, when coffee grounds are put into the stainless steel micro filter you won't get a full quart of coffee out of it. This isn't a problem with the jar itself, but just be aware that it the larger 2 quart version might be more suitable if you are a big cold brew drinker.
In an effort of getting more consistent results, I'm now keeping track of my brews. Here are my initial notes.
Beans were grounded for drip coffee. Typical serving is 4 oz.
Batch #1: 1 tbl chicory, 1.75 cups of grounded beans, add water, stir, insert filter, shake, top off with water. Steeped in fridge for 24 hours.
Yielded 19 oz of final product. Very concentrated; perfect for bold drinkers without ice.
Batch #2: 1 tbl chicory, 1 cups of grounded beans (77gm/2.72oz), add water, stir, insert filter, shake, top off with water. Steeped in fridge for 32 hours. Yielded 21 oz of concentrate. Concentrated and bold without ice, but prefer even bolder for slightly more caffeine.
Batch #-infinity: I will stick with 1 tbl chicory and 1.5 cups of grounded beans from now on. This should be perfect for my daily needs.
I hope this helps. Happy cold-brewing!!
I didn't overthink this purchase; just needed something for my upcoming 2-week road trip.
I was expecting rough edges on the filter since this is so common these days. Not at all. The seam on the filter is smooth that I could rub it all over my face.
Produces a shocking amount and simplifies production. In the past, I used several sieve-bags to ensure minimal sediment. It was so much hassle that I never made it again. I will soon purchase a 2-quart jar to use with this filter.
My method?? This 1-quart jar produced nearly 24-ounces of liquid gold.
1 - Eyeball the amount of coffee grinds and chicory directly into the jar.
2 - Fill water to 50% of jar.
3 - Insert filter, then close lid and spout.
4 - Shake vigorously to wet all coffee grounds.
5 - Open spout, then top with water.
6 - Shake again.
7 - Top with water after 1 hour.
8 - Shake every so often.
9 - Open spout, then drain into another jar of the same size.
10 - When little liquid-gold remains, allow jar to sit completely upside down to drain into other jar for 5-10 minutes. (allow spout to sit inside the liquid-gold for stability)
This 2-jar system will now come along on most weekend trips.
This brewer works very simply and conveniently. I don’t use the coffee in the filter method. I use the coffee in the jar method and leave the filter in place until I use it all up and want to make the next batch. It is easy to clean.
I got the 2 quart size. It is tall but fits on the same refrigerator shelf as the half gallon milk cartons. The jar seals work well and still leaves the jar easy to open. The pour spout works as advertised, snapping securely shut and holding itself away from the spout opening when open to pour so no splashes from the lid falling into the stream.
The filter is very strong and fine meshed. My first batch, I used up the last of my fine ground coffee. It tasted good but a small amount of sediment made it thru the screen. A final filtering with a fine mesh filter from the hot coffee maker removed the rest. For subsequent batches I used a course ground coffee and the jar’s filter removed all sediment. I would definitely recommend using the course grind.
For the two quart jar, I have used one or two cups of ground coffee per batch. With two cups, the coffee was very strong. Some would like it that way and some may want to dilute it. For me, using one cup per batch made a perfect brew that needed no dilution.
The excellent taste and ease of method leads me to highly recommend this brewer. I am very happy with it.
Almost a year in and this thing is still going strong. No quality issues thus far and I use it about twice a week. After every use, I toss it in the dishwasher so it’s probably been washed 100 times. Still works great and I’m beyond happy with my purchase. Pick up one of those fine mesh filters to solve the coffee grind sludge problem.
This thing is a game changer for those of us that are used to paying 5-7 dollars for pre-made iced coffee in the grocery store.
The downside: it does leave a “sludge” in the bottom of the container. I use coarsely ground coffee beans, but the filter just isn’t enough to keep out the sludge.
All in all, it’s not that big of a deal. The stuff that gets through isn’t anything you’ll feel in your mouth as you drink it, but it’s definitely noticable in the bottom of a glass (see pic).
Don’t let that very small detail deter you from purchasing though. I’m very glad I bought this. It holds up well in the dish washer too (I’ve ran it through the wash cycle about 5 times so far).
I’ll update this review if anything changes or if the product fails in any way.
Always been a total coffee fiend but never liked the acidity that came with heat extracted java... no idea how i missed cold brew sorcery until now
- Much lower acidity and greater flavor.
- No waiting for maker to heat up / drip, etc.
- CB stores well & lets you make a day or 2 supply amounts of java
- simple to clean
- any mason jar works
- reg & decaf and.or diff flavs can be kept ready
- no waste like k.cups, filters, etc.
- low tech / no fire required
- works great for tea (ss body doesn't hold flavor)
- supports hot water pour over
CONS (mostly for cold brew)
- filter gasket can be twitchy to reinstall iff yr impatient
- cold brew doesn't melt some sweetners like honey, agave syrup or raw sugar, SO either make some simple syrup or melt yr sweetner of choice in some boiled h2o b4 diluting the cold brew deliciousness.
- cold brewing really really lets the taste of coffee come through so cheap.er beans will taste hollow
- concentrated cold brew takes some getting used to @ different process to make yr strength
- 12 to 24 lead time
- getting totally spoiled to cold brew
An excellent entry into cold brew coffee land - simple, durable & versatile; this complete kit only needs java + water + fridge = delicious coffee goodness.
Only thing I noticed was brew strength. The kitchen aid has a larger grounds to water ratio so it makes more of a concentrate. I wouldn't call this a "concentrate" just strong cold brew; I don't drink it watered down it tastes great with a splash of cream. One brew lasts a few mornings so I can't complain. Maybe if they made the filter a little larger and could fit more grounds it would take a true concentrate (which is ideal for making a batch of cold brew last longer).
After a lot of research and use I still think this is the best of this style brewer or the price. The kitchen. Aid is much nicer, but not 75$ nicer; this could be great with a larger basket.
It’s super simple and it works great. I thought it would be harder to clean the filter but it’s not too bad. We just rinse it out and soap it up every once in a while. We usually fill up the filter half way and brew on the counter for ideally, 20 hours, 15 is ok but 12 doesn’t quite cut it unless you’re using more coffee. I don’t recommend filling the filter all the way because 1. It takes forever to fill with water if the filter is full and 2. What you end up with is liquid crack. It is way too caffeinated.
I love it because the resulting coffee is so smooth that you don’t even need to put sugar in it.
Edit: I was watching wife making her cold brew yesterday and wanted to update the review. We are now fast approaching nearly one year of usage and still today she uses this same cold brew maker, once every four days or so. We have no issues with the fine mesh strainer, the cap, or the Mason jar itself. Everything works just like it did when we first unpackaged it.
1/3 of a cup of coarsely ground coffee, 7 times. Then I poured
I poured water through the top (over the grounds), pit on the lid, tipped the jar upside down and all around, added more water, tipped again, then put it in the refrigerator from noon until breakfast this morning. I poured myself a cup, heated it in the microwave and yum. So, once a week this will be my set up for my morning coffee. I used to make an individual cup each day. I like this much better. Well, I haven't tasted it yet after it sits in the refrigerator for a week but I'm hoping it will taste as good as the first cup.
