Bruer Cold Bruer.
How it works: The Bruer cold-brew coffee maker stands out from the others we looked at because its process is flow-through. You place ice and water in the upper chamber, and a drop of water per second drips to the grounds. The extract, ready to drink, collects below, yielding about 20 ounces. (Instructions for concentrate are included.)
Pros: The fastest per ounce, with no waiting for coffee to drain once it’s brewed. Permanent filter.

Cold brew has become America's go-to ice coffee, but it's only good in a bland and nonspecific kind of way.
Iced-coffee season is winding down, which is to say, cold-brew season is winding down. In less than a decade, cold-brewed coffee — coffee that is steeped in room-temperature water, usually overnight but sometimes longer — has become America’s go-to option for iced-coffee. Its origins go back much further (maybe to the Netherlands, maybe to Latin America, and maybe to both), and for years it was a New Orleans curiosity before exploding. The technique proliferated among the country’s coffee experts before eventually landing at Starbucks (of course) and Dunkin’ Donuts, giving way to things like draft lattes and “nitro-brewed” tap coffee. It’s in our grocery stores and gas stations. Cold brew has crept into every corner of the coffee-drinking world, and it’s gotten to the point where everyone would benefit from drinking something else.

Cold brew is everywhere these days, from the fanciest third-wave coffee shop in the Mission to the Starbucks inside your grocery store. But according to a few Bay Area roasters, the trendy method–where grounds are steeped in cold water overnight–isn’t the best way to make iced coffee. Instead, places like Four Barrel, Highwire and Counter Culture advocate flash brewing, an improved version of the old-fashioned technique of pouring hot coffee over ice.
“My business partners and I…always preferred the brighter notes and balance in the cup that blooming coffee with hot water provides,” Robert Myers, owner of Highwire Coffee Roasters, wrote in an email. “[Cold brew made in a] Toddy, to me, always tasted muddled and thick. Smooth in an unpleasant way. An incomplete cup.”

Five years ago, cold-brew coffee was the exception, less common than hot-drip coffee and espresso poured over ice. Now it's the rule, both at indie coffee shops and at Starbucks alike. Lower temperatures don't extract the acids that give hot coffee floral and acidic fruit-forward flavors, so you'll end up with something smoother, with notes that are more chocolate-like and nutty — when done well, at least. Year after year, be Coffee, using beans that could be described as well-developed, though certainly far from roasty, burnt, or smoky, seems to have figured out an equation that leads to the nearly perfect cup (at least, in our opinion).

The cold brew method allows you to make a ready-to-drink beverage or a concentrate that can be mixed with milk, water, almond milk, or even hot water or milk to enjoy a variety of recipes.
Cold brewing requires 12-24 hours to brew. This slow process allows the maximum amount of flavor and caffeine to be extracted from the coffee without forcing all of the acid with hot water. Cold brew is proven to be 65-70% less acidic than a hot brewed coffee.
Simply fill the pitcher half way with cold water, put the coffee in the basket, place the basket in the pitcher, and pour the rest of your water through the coffee until it is full.

If you love iced coffee and you're not already brewing your own, you need to invest in a French press and start making your own cold brew. It is so insanely easy. You don't need a lot of time or fancy equipment. Plus, it's a lot cheaper to invest in a French press than it is to buy a cup of iced coffee every day.
I started making cold brew a year ago, and it's been a lifesaver. I can roll out of bed and pour myself a glass of cold brew (with milk). I don't have to get dressed, walk to the coffee shop, order coffee (interacting with people in the morning is hard), and then pay. Here's how to make cold brew coffee in a French press.

ortland, Oregon–based roaster Stumptown is a champion of cold coffee. In addition to bottling its signature cold brew, Stumptown offers nitrogenated cans ($5), milk-topped cartons and sparkling coffees. Brent Wolczynski holds the title of cold brew production manager at Stumptown and is responsible for quality control just as much as product development. In other words, he knows cold brewing techniques better than just about anyone.
While, in theory, cold brew can be made by soaking coffee grounds in a bowl with water and straining the liquid through a coffee filter or cheesecloth, Wolczynski recommends the Filtron system ($38). “The wool filter does a great job of making a clean cup with little sediment,” he says. “But if you don’t have one at home, you can also steep coffee in a French press and pour what you’ve pressed through a paper filter to polish it off.

On a hot summers day there’s nothing quite like a nice, cold … coffee?
Although Cold Brew Coffee isn’t exactly a new innovation, in the last few years interest in the drink has really taken off, especially in North America, where they even have a National Cold Brew day*! Cold Brew Coffee is not quite as popular here in the UK, yet …however, it has certainly been getting a lot of attention recently; so what exactly is Cold Brew, and what makes it different?
First of all, it’s important to recognise that Cold Brew is not the same as ‘iced coffee’ or a blended cold coffee drink; to make a Cold Brew, we’re not just adding ice to the coffee! Cold Brew Coffee involves a different extraction method, this significantly alters the taste of the coffee when compared to the flavours we would get if we brewed the same coffee with heat.
Preparing a Cold Brew is a much slower process than brewing a normal coffee because we don’t have the heat to help us move things along as quickly.

My heart seems to belong to coffee. It hasn’t always been quite like this. My days used to start so early with a big, cozy mug of tea, some reading, a little industriousness, but mostly quiet puttering about before I made my day. Summer busyness is bringing some later nights, which means slightly later mornings (with plenty of puttering about still, thank goodness). As soon as I snap out of my mid-morning haze, I start craving the dark, roasty, slightly acidic tang of strong coffee. There’s a lot of power in that first sip.

How to make cold brew coffee
Have you jumped on the cold brew coffee bandwagon yet?
It has been unseasonably hot here so far this summer and for me the thought of a hot cup of coffee doesn’t quite hold the same appeal as it did when it was cold. But the baby doesn’t sleep through the night anymore so coffee is clearly still an essential part of surviving the day, which is why I needed to know how to make cold brew coffee. And so do you!
It’s the perfect drink for this time of year – straight out of the fridge, poured over ice, caffeinated goodness. The awesome thing about cold brew coffee is that you can make it in advance and leave it in the fridge for a few days. No trying to cool down freshly brewed coffee quickly to make an iced coffee, no mucking around with blenders and ice-cream (not that I’m ever opposed to an ice-cream iced coffee!) but this is icy cold coffee in pure simplicity.

It has happened slowly over the last year or so, as my body and my health has continued to shift and improve, but I have developed a pretty solid morning habit that involves a quality cup of organic coffee shortly after I rise. I have come to find that this morning routine serves many purposes for me, personally, but most importantly, I find it’s a really beautiful morning ritual, something that I greatly enjoy and always allow myself the space to honor and totally embrace, no matter where in the world I am.
Often I am asked “is coffee good for you?” As you can probably imagine, my answer to this question is quite similar to how I respond to many other food and health related questions and that is – “it depends”.
I can tell you that when my health was at it’s worst, I couldn’t tolerate coffee at all, not even in the smallest of amounts. It took serious gut healing, managing chronic fatigue and getting my liver detoxified, along with many other advancements to my health, to finally being able to enjoy coffee again. I can also tell you that while most mornings that you’ll find me with a cup of java, I also give my body a break, often, replacing my coffee with matcha some mornings, or even an herbal tea (to be certain that I am not dependent on the caffeine). As usual, I just generally stay in tune with what my body needs, day by day.

For the uninitiated, cold brew coffee is achieved without any heat. The coffee grounds are instead simply saturated with cold water and set aside at room temperature to steep. What results is an insanely smooth, ridiculously addictive brew that, compared to traditionally brewed coffee, is far less bitter. And, fortunately, it’s easy to make at home. The only trick is it requires quite a lot more coffee grounds than traditionally brewed coffee since there’s no assist from heat; however, the smooth, decidedly not-bitter result more than merits the slightly extra expense. Besides, making homemade cold brew coffee is exponentially less pricey than purchasing it at your local coffeehouse.

Cold Brew is a coffee made by mixing coffee grounds with water, over a long period of time. Typically cold brewed coffee takes 12-24 hours; at room temperature or lower.
Cold brewed coffee has less acidity and can tend to be more strongly caffeinated. It can be ideal as a base for iced coffee since no dilution will occur after being iced.

In Cuba,” reports a coffee compendium published in 1922, “the custom is to grind the coffee fine, to put it into a receiving vessel, and to pour cold water on it. This is repeated many times, until the coffee mass is well saturated. The final result is a highly concentrated extract, which serves for making cafe au lait, or cafe noir, as desired.” What this century-old recipe describes, of course, is nothing less than the trendiest drink of the past several summers: cold-brew coffee.
Cold brew — made by letting coffee grounds soak in water at or below room temperature — is now a ubiquitous feature of the American city. Packaged in handsome brown bottles and poured by baristas in hip coffee shops, it was once a much rarer treat, disregarded and diminished by even the country’s most involved members of the industry. Around the same time as the above passage described Cuban coffee, a trade publication claimed to have the latest chemical science on its side when it declared that “the practice of soaking the grounds in cold water is to be condemned.”

Everybody loves cold-brew iced coffee: The chocolatey, smooth flavor; its versatility as an ingredient in coffee mocktails, cocktails, or baking; and the "low acid" that has made it famous as an alternative to traditional iced coffee beverages is only a portion of why this brewing method has caught on like a flash.

Smooth and sweet versus floral and acidic: Any coffee aficionado can note the distinctive taste profiles that distinguish cold brew coffee from a hot cup of conventionally-brewed java.
Both beverages arise from the same starting materials, coffee grounds and water, but differ wildly in taste.
How a coffee bean is roasted and ground makes a huge difference in how the final drink tastes, smells, and feels in your mouth. But the way it's brewed is probably the most important contribution you can make to that final, sweet, sweet taste of joe.

How to make cold brew coffee in 3 easy steps
Instead of making coffee using hot water, cold brew requires cold water. We simply combine ground coffee and cold water then wait while the coffee brews into an ultra-smooth, rich cup of coffee.
You may be asking, why don’t you just add ice to regular coffee?
You could do that, but adding a bunch of ice cubes to hot coffee dilutes things. The flavor is watery and any nuance the coffee had when brewed gets trampled.
With cold brew, the flavor is rich and strong.

How to cook: Cold Brew Coffee
Place coffee in a large bowl or French press and pour over 3 cups of filtered, room temperature water. Set aside for 10 minutes, and then stir gently to combine. Cover and set aside at room temperature for 12 hours.
Line a fine sieve with a coffee filter. Slowly pour coffee through sieve into a pitcher, discarding the grounds. (If using a French press, slowly press down on the lid to isolate the grounds at the bottom, and then pour coffee through a filter, if you like.)
Use coffee immediately, or chill until ready to serve. For each cup, pour one part coffee and one part water or milk over ice.
WHAT ELSE SHOULD I KNOW?
• Keep the coffee concentrate in your refrigerator for up to 3 days.
• It’s easy to make a larger batch. Just stick with a water to coffee ratio of 4:1 (or 5:1 for darker roasts, if you prefer).

Cold Brew Coffee Concentrate
Living in the city (Silver Lake area of Los Angeles) had its perks. I could walk everywhere: market, restaurants, banks, bars, etc. More importantly, during the hot summer months it meant I could simply cross the street every morning/afternoon to get iced coffee. Without realizing it, I was spending close to $20 a week to sustain my need for caffeine. And then I moved to the suburbs. Pasadena isn’t technically a suburb, but I live in an area that requires a car to get anywhere. The only place I can walk to is a gas station, and they don’t sell iced coffee. That’s where coffee concentrate comes into play.
Coffee concentrates seem to be popping up everywhere. From the rows of bottled coffee concentrates I see at the market to the numerous cold brew coffee concentrate kits I stumble upon online, it is definitely a hot commodity. I’ve purchased my fair share of these products. I love the ease of being able to whip up a batch of iced coffee at a moment’s notice. Simply grab a glass, pour, and enjoy. Obviously, buying these bottles and kits also adds up. This homemade cold brew coffee concentrate solves everything.

Cold brewing, also called cold water extraction or cold pressing, is the process of steeping coffee grounds in water at cool temperatures for an extended period. Coarse-ground beans are soaked in water for a prolonged period of time, usually 12 hours or more. The water is normally kept at room temperature, but chilled water is also used. The grounds are filtered out of the water after they have been steeped using a paper coffee filter, a fine metal sieve, a French press, or felt, in the case of the "Toddy" brewing system. The result is a coffee concentrate that is often diluted with water or milk, and is served hot, over ice, or blended with ice and other ingredients such as chocolate. Slow-drip cold brew, also known as Kyoto-style, or as Dutch coffee in East Asia, refers to a process in which water is dripped through coffee grounds at room temperature over the course of many hours.

How to make cold-brew coffee
As a young student of the culinary arts, there were a handful of “commandments”—central tenets of good cooking—that each of my mentors persistently reinforced (read: screamed). One such precept, which has been indelibly seared into my cortex, is that heat equals flavor. Heat browns meat, caramelizes sugar, and extracts body-giving gelatin from bones. Heat also creates aroma, concentrates flavor compounds, and melts unctuous fats. If heat is so great (which it is), why on Earth am I promoting the practice of combining ground coffee with room-temperature water and letting it infuse slowly for hours? The answer lies in the fact that heat is indiscriminate.
It’s true that coffee brewed at 210 degrees will contain more aroma compounds, dissolved solids, and flavor than coffee brewed at 72 degrees. But this is one case where more isn’t necessarily better. Along with the good stuff, heat also extracts the majority of bitterness and astringency found in hot-brewed coffee. Exposed to far less heat, cold-brew is significantly less acerbic than its sweltering sibling. Less bitterness means that the subtler flavors found in coffee beans are more perceptible. For me, good cold-brew balances hints of dark chocolate, caramel, ripe black fruits, and vanilla with a pleasant viscosity, mild acidity, and pitch perfect bitterness. If my description sounds florid to you, it’s probably because you didn’t have cold-brew this morning. In all honesty, it’s lush, nuanced, and incredibly smooth.
