    A great looking, functional cold brew coffer maker

    Cold brew coffee's convenience, low acidity content, and distinct flavor have made it one of my favorite beverages. The process of making cold brew coffee is really simple but the industry have made it extremely complicated. All you really need is coarsely ground coffee, a filter bag, water, and a container. In fact, before I purchased this wonderful looking brew coffee machine, I used a ceramic bowl and a coffee filter bag; the coffee tasted great. So you might ask, what justifies this brewer's price tag? Personally, I paid $80 for the look and the convenience. This coffee maker looks great to me. Its brushed metal handle and the glass wall scream quality. The metal coffee dispenser is unique and turns so smoothly that it reminds me of the AC vent knobs on the 2018 Mercedes. None of these aesthetic and usability features are relevant to the end product it tries to make-the delicious cup of cold brew. But I have to say you can get there in a rather stylistic way. Functionally, the brewer offers a few things that other traditional brewers cannot. First, because of the dispenser and the form factor, you can easily store the brewer in your fridge without having to transfer the coffee to another container. In the morning, all I have to do is opening up my fridge and get the coffee without having to remove the brewer. Second, there is no guess work as to how much coffee ground is needed. There is a marking on the coffee basket tat tells you how much coffee to put in--about 250 grams. Lastly, cleaning is extremely easy. All you need to do is rinsing the coffee basket and the brewer itself. Make sure you run the dispenser a few seconds to get rid of the residual coffee that still remains in the dispenser tube. This Kitchen Aid cold brew maker adds a little more fine touches to the cold brew coffee experience. Its convenient features are not necessary but certainly feels polished and luxurious. Again, you DO NOT need this brewer to make delicious cold brew. So the ultimate question is probably, how much does the experience of making cold brew in a nice looking container cost?

    Overpriced and Poor Design

    My wife purchased this for me and it's overpriced for a carafe with a slow spout. I normally make my own cold brew with some cheese cloth and a big pitcher and when I saw this thing I had to shake my head because it barely made a pot of coffee and the spout would poor very slowly and couldn't handle the coffee residue that made it through the metal strainer. Do yourself a favor and purchase a big 2 gallon ice tea mason jar (with spout) and some cheese cloth and use the savings to buy a coffee burr grinder for fresh tasting cold brew.

    I'm not the type to read instructions so I glimpsed through them just to see how you take this apart to wash. Let me say this makes very strong coffee and I only use a light roast. I added water for 2 weeks until I got to a point where 1tbls of concentrate didn't need 10oz of water. I used filtered water to brew just because it looks so clean in my refrigerator. My suggestion if you purchase is if your making coffee in this you should take it completely apart and wash it every time to prevent clogs. There's nothing worse than needing to beiutthe door in 1 min to catch a bus and your coffee won't come out the spout. I haven't used it for other beverages yet maybe when I switch back to hot coffee.

    Me and my wife have recently discovered cold brew coffee and love the smooth, less acidic taste. We had a smaller cold brew coffee maker, but were looking for something with more capacity since it takes 12-24 hours to brew it. I got her this for her birthday and we LOVE it. It's simple to clean and allows us to drink it for several days before we need to brew more. It's very sturdy and built solid. Highly recommend it...worth it for the price.

    This thing is amazing, just add your favorite coarsely ground coffee, let it sit and boom coffee. Really easy to dismantle and clean, has a very sturdy design, glass is extremely thick. my only gripe is the spout pouring slowly, other than that this thing has saved me so much on not going to Starbucks, plus the coffee is less acidic

    I have used a bodum for about a year and been eyeing the kitchenaid. SO glad i took the plunge with a coupon. The glass and stainless construction is very durable handling daily use. It keeps the cold brew fresh for weeks, and the pour spout doesn't drip making it a perfect addition to a modern kitchen. You will not regret this purchase, quality as are most kitchenaid products of which my kitchen is filled!!

    The handle seems to be made of some other type of material because after I washed it once, there are all these white stains and discolorations on it. I also received one with a big scratch on the nozzle. Other than that, the rest is high quality. I think the handle might be coated or treated specially.

    I just bought this and I absolutely love it. I love that I can make it stronger if I chose to. I'm very happy with my purchase and this will save me money for sure. I use to stop at Starbucks almost on a daily basis to grab an iced coffee. Now, I can make it at home for less! It last a couple days but it also depends on how much coffee you consume.
