This Just Might Be the Easiest Way to Make Your Own Cold Brew
Iced coffee season is finally here!
With warmer weather finally here, it’s officially iced coffee season. Even if you drink chilled coffee all year, it’s even more enjoyable when you can leisurely sip outside in the sunshine. The only problem? Popping into your favorite cafe for a cold brew everyday can be hard on your wallet (and the environment).
An affordable, easy solution is this Cold Brew Coffee Maker from Amazon. It looks like an ordinary pitcher, but it turns out seriously delicious cold brew. Plus, you can use pretty much any ground coffee you’d like ... though I’m partial to this classic New Orleans blend.
Perhaps most importantly, this brewer is amazingly easy to use. You don’t need any paper filters or cheesecloth — just fill the mesh filter with your preferred coffee, slowly pour over water until the pitcher fills, and let it sit overnight. In the morning, you’ll have cold brew ready and waiting for you. And if you don’t drink all six to eight cups at once, just remove the filter and use the pitcher as, well, a pitcher.
It might take some time to figure out your specifics to get your ideal flavor. Play with how much time you let it sit, or how many tablespoons of coffee you use. I like my coffee not-too-strong, so I usually use about eight tablespoons of coffee and let it sit for around 14 hours.
Hundreds of five-star reviews back up this brewer’s ease of use, ideal fridge size and incredible value. And since it’s available on Amazon Prime, you could be brewing in just a couple of days!
