#3: Toddy T2N Cold Brew System
This cold brew coffee maker produces 48 ounces of concentrate, enough for 24 6-ounce cups. It has a asymmetrical hourglass design with one end holding the metal filter and the other a storage vessel for the concentrate. It uses regular coffee beans to create incredibly smooth coffee concentrate with 67% less acid than coffee made with hot brew. Plus, you can get more out of your coffee grounds, as the coffee concentrate stays fresh for up to 2 weeks with no change to the flavor. However, the white plastic bucket will take on coffee stains over time, and the glass carafe feels more prone to breaking.
#2: Filtron Cold Water Coffee Concentrate Brewer
This cold brew coffee maker can consistently produce a great-tasting coffee concentrate regardless of the beans that you will use. It has a felt filter and a rubber stopper fit into the bottom of a black plastic bucket with a handle, and an optional (but recommended) paper filter holds the grounds and water. You let your mixture sit for 12 to 24 hours (we brewed for a full day) in the plastic, after which you put the included carafe underneath it and pull the stopper, leaving it to drain about 30 minutes. Cleaning it means either plucking out a filter full of grounds or scooping and rinsing the bucket. After rinsing the felt filter, you store it in water in an included container in the fridge to prevent mold. It produces 32 ounces of concentrate that you can then dilute with water at a ratio of 6-to-1 that is enough for about 37 6-ounce servings of cold-brew coffee. plus, the concentrate holds for two weeks in the fridge. Its biggest downside is the potential for molding when the unit is not stored properly.
#1: OXO Good Grips Cold Brew Coffee Maker
This cold brew coffee maker is the most good-looking unit with the best features for brewing and storing your coffee that put it at the top of our list for the best cold brew coffee makers you can buy. It can bring more flavors from your coffee than other brewers. It uses a reservoir-and-vessel system, but instead of resting directly on top of the carafe, the reservoir sits on a dedicated wide-base stand. The water pours through a perforated lid that distributes the liquid evenly and allows fresher coffee. Its vessel has extensive volume markings to help you measure out water for brewing. It accommodates 10 ounces of beans to make 24 ounces of concentrate, watered down 2.5-to-1 when using the suggested recipe and ratio and 4.5 parts water to 1 part grounds, watered down 3-to-1 while using the standard recipe. The only con is the paper filters that block the flow and does not drain properly that can help to create a smoother brew with less silt at the bottom though.
