Cold brew is all the rage these days - in South Africa and across the coffee world. Many people are excited about the chance to drink cold coffee that tastes great, and some even prefer the less acidic profile of cold brewed coffee. You can actually buy bottled cold brew in many places now, but for passionate coffee lovers, brewing your own is definitely a worthwhile undertaking.
If you're just getting started with cold brew, the top end cold drip towers and immersion systems can appear a little expensive and daunting. You can get started with a simple plunger, but that can also be tricky and may not yield results quite as good as a purpose-built cold brewer. Fortunately Hario has released a whole range of affordable cold brew coffee makers that are the perfect way to start on your cold brewing adventures
About the Hario Cold Brew Coffee Jug
The Hario Cold Brew Coffee Jug is actually a modified version of its popular and affordable Mizudashi Cold Brew Coffee Pot. Like the Coffee Pot, it's a purpose-built immersion cold brewer with a built-in filter basket which makes cold brew a snap. The main difference is that this Coffee Jug swaps out the plastic, silicone and resin parts of the Coffee Pot and replaces them with stainless steel. This means that you can get the same great-tasting results with more durability and less exposure to plastics.
To Use the Hario Cold Brew Coffee Jug, you simply put some grounds in the filter basket, submerge them in water for a time of your choosing (somewhere between 8 & 24 hours) and remove them quickly and easily when your extraction is finished. It can brew on the counter or sit in a refrigerator, and once you've removed the coffee, it also provides an ideal serving and storage container for your cold brew!
At ~1000ml capacity when filled with coffee grounds, you can get batches of ~800-900ml at a time. This means you can brew a few servings worth at a standard concentration, or increase your brew ratio to make concentrate that will stretch for quite a bit more. What we love about this coffee maker is that it's so simple to use, that you can literally make a fresh batch of cold brew every day with very little preparation time and effort. If you want to try making cold brew, this may be the perfect way to start!
