Cold Brew Coffee Maker
Coffee is never very far from my hand at all times. And normally I drink a medium roast with sweetener and half & half! I even visit coffee shops when I’m out and about to get my favorite latte or iced coffee drink (especially in the summer) but what about when I’m at home? To answer that, we’re trying the Cold Brew Coffee Maker by Willow & Everett.
MAKE DELICIOUS COLD BREW COFFEE IN 3 EASY STEPS: Now you don’t have to go to your favorite coffee shop to get your cold brew coffee fix. In three simple steps you can make 32 ounces of smooth, delicious, homemade cold brew coffee, perfect for beating the summer heat and wowing guests.
HANDLE AND SPOUT FOR EASY POURING: A well-crafted glass handle and pouring spout give you a controlled and spill-free experience when serving up your homemade cold brew coffee.
REMOVABLE DUAL-MESH STAINLESS STEEL FILTER: Our high-quality dual mesh filter is BPA and plastic free and keeps your coffee grinds from leaking into your cold coffee, providing the perfect amount of steeping overnight. When finished brewing, simply remove the filter, dump out the coffee grounds and move the silicone ring to the base of the lid (so you can reseal the carafe). Put the filter away and pop the lid back on the pitcher and store in the fridge for later enjoyment.
ATTRACTIVE GLASS & STAINLESS STEEL DESIGN: This glass and stainless steel iced coffee maker was designed to be attractive enough to leave out on your table or kitchen counter for serving. The durable, shatterproof glass pitcher brews up 4-5 servings, keeps your cold brew coffee cool and looks great in your kitchen.
So with all the fairly quick ways to make coffee these days, why is cold brew (which is different than “iced coffee”) becoming popular?
I understand that because the brewing process takes longer (the coffee is in contact with the water for a longer time), you get a sweeter and less acidic cup of coffee. And if you have trouble with acid reflux, by drinking cold brew coffee, you may be able to avoid trouble with your morning/afternoon caffeine fix.
At the local coffee shop, I’ve started seeing a bunch of drinks using the cold brew coffee. Some of my favorites are when they add a simple syrup for flavor and sweetness to the coffee or when you order it mixed with coconut milk instead of your traditional creamers.
Using the Cold Brew Coffee Maker was pretty simple. I washed all the parts by hand first and then set out to make my first pitcher. I’d definitely suggest to keep your ground with a fairly rough grind because if they are for a regular coffee pot, you will find some can seep through the filter. They suggest adding 3/4 cup of coffee for the 32 ounce pitcher. Then you seal the lid and set it in the fridge for 12-24 hours. You empty the mesh filter when you’re ready to serve and that’s it!
I like the glass pitcher with the stainless steel lid when it was sitting on the counter or my table instead of the “boring” old coffee pot. And it takes up less space in the fridge too, which is great!
The only drawback was once you remove the filter from the pitcher, you have to slide the silicon ring off and place it on the lid to close the pitcher again. It’s not necessary for function purposes really, but just a hassle to get my fingers messy when I’m trying to fix a drink for myself or guests.
