Best Cold Brew Coffee Makers

Now you can brew coffee in your sleep – literally!

Iced coffee drink

For a refreshing drink on a hot summer’s day, or to make delicious desserts, try brewing your coffee cold.  It’s easy to make and you can have a supply in the frig ready to go.  Your coffee will brew while you are sleeping!  No need to boil the kettle in the morning and you don’t even need to put the coffee brewer in the frig: on the bench overnight is fine.  Morning or evening, simply add milk, ice-cream or your favorite mix for an instant, refreshing and full-flavored coffee.

If you are sensitive to caffeine or suffer from insomnia, it might be a wise idea to make your cold brew using decaffeinated coffee. Another thought: your guests might thank you for using decaffeinated coffee in your delicious coffee-favored dessert! Buy a good brand of decaffeinated coffee and you won’t be able to tell that the coffee is decaffeinated.

Cold Coffee Brewer Takeya

Cold brewing coffee gives a more natural coffee flavor that is stronger, sweeter and around 70% less acidic than coffee made with hot water.  Cold brew will continue getting stronger the longer you leave it and will keep in the frig for up to two weeks, but I doubt you will be able to resist it that long!  The result is delicious full-flavored coffee that can be diluted or used to make a delicious dessert.

Another advantage of cold brew coffee is the resulting sweet flavor so that you might not need any sugar at all, depending on your taste.

To keep up with your busy lifestyle, why not buy two cold brew coffee makers:  one can be in the frig brewing while you are enjoying the coffee from the other.  If you do a lot of entertaining, a larger brewer would be a sensible and useful option to serve coffee-loving guests.

Some cold coffee brewers can be used to make hot coffee or tea, but if you want that versatility, first check the manufacturer’s product guides and information.  For instance, if any components are plastic, are they heat resistant and to what temperature.  Also consider flavour transfer:  do you really want your herbal infusion having a back-note of coffee, and vice versa?

The best grind for brewing cold coffee is coarse grind as it allows for full flavor extraction without any grinds leaking into your coffee.
