[Amazon.ca] Primula Burke Cold Brew Coffee Maker (Prime) $19.99 (43% off)

Picked one up before posting so I could test it out. Good quality for the price and all components are dishwasher safe. Bottom can be removed from the insert for significantly easier cleaning.

Thank you for helping my coffee addiction...
I was gonna start making cold brew with my french press but I like the idea of having a dedicated unit.

Make it first with the french press so you know it's not going to be a 2 week affair of cold brew and then this just sits in your kitchen unused.

I'm glad I didn't buy a dedicated maker because I don't cold brew as much as I thought (was looking at the hario cold brew makers before, but this is better designed imo, like to fit in the fridge and clean out)

True. I think will try it with french press first since would probably not use it as much

But it is 43% off! :p

I hear you. I just thought "oh maybeeeee I could use this and let it sit in my fridge.... It's only $20.... sometimes I buy a really underwhelming bag of beans and cold brew would be a better way to use them up and..."

I should get off RFD.

Why do I need something special to make a cold brew? I've made it in a french press, I don't really see what this has that's an advantage.

No-frills version of making cold brew without buying another gadget:

1) Buy reusable mesh coffee filter - looks like this, but Dollarama and Walmart both sell a version for $3-4
2) Grab any juice jug or glass container you have
3) Put coffee grounds right into jug, add as much water as you want for desired strength
4) Give it a quick stir to make sure the grounds aren't just all at the top
5) Put it in the fridge for 12-24 hrs
6) Take it out, pour the jug through the mesh filter to get 80% of the grounds out
7) Run the coffee through the mesh filter again but with an added paper filter if you want to get rid of the fine grounds/sludge
8) Wash the mesh coffee filter for use next time and enjoy!

I've done this setup for a couple years, and have looked at these cold brew "makers" but it really seems like an unnecessary gadget as it doesn't save THAT many steps, and the filter you see is just a mesh filter that will leave some sludge in your cold brew.

My French Press is used exclusively for cold brew and I haven't had any issue.

That said, this is 43% off.......

I mean, for the extra $15 (excluding the price of paper filters) the simplicity may be worth it to some. I wouldn't pay $40 for it, but at $20 it's not a bad deal.

I think the difference between this and a French press is the amount you can make in one go. I haven’t seen many 1.5l French presses. I have a dedicated 1L cold brew jug and I make a batch that lasts me about 6 days’ worth.

IKEA also sells something similar (they call it Tea Brewer or something like that) for $10. As people said above, using French Press is better (if this is a 2 week affair).

So what you are all saying is you should spend $1 less and get this 8-cup one instead ?

I kid, I got this for $35 a few months ago and am very happy with both hot and cold-brew operations

You can probably also used to to make iced tea! You can cold brew with tea leaves too.

Buy an Aeropress and make coffee over ice Japanese style. Nothing sitting in the fridge and it uses paper filter. Strength of coffee is dependent on coffee bean, grind and qty of coffee used. Delicious and easy BTW.

Failure is always an option...just not the preferred one!
