How to choose a Cold Brew Coffee Maker and Which Cold Brew Coffee Maker is the Best?

Cold brew coffee and cold brew tea have become very popular in recent years. HARIO also offers various types of cold brew bottles. Are you wondering how to choose the right one? This page explains the features of each cold brew  bottle and how to choose the one that's perfect for you.

First, what is cold brew? Cold brew is a method of extraction that differs from conventional hot brewing, as it involves steeping coffee grounds or tea leaves in cold or room temperature water over an extended period of time. This method allows for the gradual extraction of flavors and compounds from the beans or leaves, resulting in a unique taste and smoothness. Cold brew coffee and tea are typically appreciated for their distinct flavors and rich profiles.

It may take some time to perfect, but once you get the hang of it, making cold brew becomes part of your daily routine!

Key points for choosing cold brew bottles

  • Size and Capacity: Determine how much cold brew you want to make at once. Choose a pot that can accommodate your desired volume without being too large or too small.

  • Material: Look for a pot made from durable and non-reactive materials like glass, or BPA-free plastic. Consider whether you prefer a transparent  container to monitor the brewing process or place importance on lightness and resistance to breakage.

  • Filtering System: Check the filtering mechanism of the pot. Some pots come with built-in filters, while others require separate filters. Ensure that the filter can effectively separate the grounds from the liquid without leaving sediment.

  • Design and Aesthetic: Choose a pot that matches your personal style and complements your kitchen decor. Consider factors like shape, handle design, and overall aesthetics. Also the possibility of horizontal or vertical placement.
