The Cold Bruer utilises a clean and functional design, while maintaining the quality of the brewing process, and ultimately the end product. The benefit of a good cold brew is that it’s full-flavoured, smooth and silky. Cold brewed coffee has much less acidity and bitterness which makes it perfect for iced coffee drinks.

The process is quite visually appealing – the Cold Bruer has 3 levels: the water, the coffee grounds and the coffee collection chamber. Water slowly drips down the water chamber and into the coffee chamber, slowly saturating the coffee grounds and continuing through to the coffee carafe. The total slow drip process can take anywhere from 3-12 hours depending on the drip rate selected. The beauty of the Cold Bruer is that it’s practical and reasonably priced, making cold brewed coffee easy to obtain!

FAQ about the Cold Bruer
Q: Why does it take 3+ hours to make?
A: At lower water temperatures, coffee is less soluble, so it extracts much slower. As a result, at least a couple of hours are necessary to develop a balanced, velvety sweet beverage.
Q: Can I re-use the ground coffee?
A: We don’t recommend it. All of the good qualities of the coffee have been extracted during the first brew.
Q: How long can I keep cold brew fresh?
A: Unlike hot coffee that has a very short life span (about 30 minutes), cold brew can be kept fresh for a much longer time. We’ve had some cold brew that’s been in our fridge for a few weeks and it still tasted great! The most important thing is to keep it sealed from oxygen.
Q: How is the Cold Bruer cleaned?
A: It’s very simple to clean. The ground coffee easily drops out of the tower when the bottom filter is removed, and the glass parts are quickly rinsed under a faucet.
Q: Can I put it in the dishwasher?
A: Yes, it is dishwasher safe, however we find it very easy to clean by hand.
