This Budget-Friendly, Easy-to-Use French Press Doubles as a Cold Brew Maker and Streamlines My Morning Routine
There are few things in life that bring immediate gratification quite like a piping hot cup of high-quality coffee. However, while a warm cup of joe is amazing during the fall and winter, it can be a little much when the spring and summer roll around. (Even for me, a hot coffee diehard, the thought of sipping a piping hot cup of black coffee while standing in a sweltering subway station has me sweating already.) So, iced coffee — and more specifically, cold brew — is usually the move during the warmer months of the year. Unfortunately, shelling out for a cup of cold brew from a cafe every day gets expensive, and the large-format bottles of concentrate can be pricey as well, especially if you like the nice stuff. Making cold brew at home is the best, budget-friendly option — the only issue is that usually, if you want cold brew in the morning, you have to set it up the previous night, and if you forget to do so, you’re out of luck. Luckily, it’s 2023, and while we don’t have flying cars and time machines, science has come up with an innovative way to cut down the cold brew process to just 20 minutes. Allow me to introduce you to the Instant Cold Brewer.
From the makers of the viral Instant Pot, the Instant Cold Brewer makes true cold brew at home in under 20 minutes using its unique “FlashExtract” technology. Just add water and your favorite ground coffee (you can customize the brew strength to taste), turn on the machine, and in the time it takes to take a shower and brush your teeth, you’ll have a pitcher of cold brew that’s ready to drink. The removable glass pitcher holds up to 32 ounces of coffee and the basket and pitcher are dishwasher-safe for easy cleanup. Plus, iced tea fans can use loose tea leaves to make delicious iced tea in minutes. Oh, and did we mention that it’s on sale right now?
With a 4.7-star average rating on the site, we’re not the only ones who think highly of this bad boy. “This Instant Cold Brewer is perfect if you’re looking to switch up your normal coffee routine,” one reviewer writes. “What I love most about this brewer is that it’s silent. There is a small buzzing noise right when it begins but it’s completely quiet after that. Making coffee without any noise, water dripping or that coffee smell took some getting used to … Cleanup is super simple. Simply dump out your grounds like you normally would and wash the glass container. It is even dishwasher-safe if you prefer that method. Overall, I highly recommend this Instant Cold Brewer. It’s easy and convenient to use and also offers a nice twist to your traditional coffee.”
If the recent spell of warm weather has you itching to make the switch to iced coffee (or if you’re a year-round cold brew guzzler) there’s no better time to purchase the Instant Cold Brewer — just make sure you act fast and snag it while it’s still on sale!
