I forgot to mention that this size doesn't seem to be available in the UK anywhere else. I saw only one website where it's out of stock at £50. The nearest is 40oz which costs between £50-£60 on Amazon. Also the Costco these are in is Sunbury TW16. They have Copper and Silver finish models. The price above includes VAT.

Could a mod please amend this.

I somehow submitted this deal well before I was ready, sorry. Don't know If its a special deal at Costco but there's nothing to say it is so should be around for a while.

Costco knows that's what we do. Its a money trap 😁
Unlike most other coffee makers, you don't need to buy this to make cold brew coffee. You just need a jug/vessel of some kind and some means of filtering the grounds out. So for example you can just use a french press if you have one lying around.

Brewing with cold water takes 12+ hours to get a strong flavour, I use kilner jars to make my iced coffee in batches, but I usually leave it for over a day, it’s very nice and cheaper than this

Making hot coffee with a kettle is cheap too but people still buy coffee machines. I guess people choose to buy things they don't strickly need for the convenience it provides.
If you have a French press you have the only thing you need to makw cold brew. Steep it in the fridge for 24 hours. I pour mine through an Aeropress filter into a glass carafe to keep it sediment free.

Cold brew is about cutting out certain parts of the coffee extraction, such as acids, and making a highly concentrated, high caffiene brew which keeps in the fridge for abouy a week and which you can dilute and heat up if you prefer it hot.

You don't really need to filter as the grounds sink to the bottom. Just drink slowly.
I’ve never understood the desire to combine the brewing and the serving equipment, especially for cold brew.

You can’t fit it in the fridge (where you wouldn’t need the ice) and you don’t have to wait until you’ve drink it all until you brew again.

Just to note I couldn’t find a review that wasn’t paid or find any mention of it in the coffee forums I use.

If you want a cold coffee drink without the waiting and the expensive equipment then follow James Hoffman’s method here:
How to use it. TW: crappy music.

Looks like another dust gatherer. Not even dishwasher friendly. I like cold brewed coffee, but there are a lot of easier ways to make it.

All you really need is an old filter coffee machine they used in Starsky & Hutch in the Americna diners back in the day!
Is this meant to be retro or just a p1$$ take?>

How would that work?

How would that work?


Forget it I was talking sheeeeeite!
It would work on mine but not on most as you would need to find some way of sticking a cold water holder above the paper filter holder - Mine is 50 years old and you can actually do it with it but most others not so sure!

Soz case of talking out of my bum without thinking!

Fazered posted a good youtube vid though so no need to buy this expensive piece of gubbins to join the popcorn maker, panini grill, ice cream maker, spiraliser, pineapple corer, sandwich toaster and all those other things you thought were going to be great but just took too much effort to use and especially to clean in the back of the depths of your kitchen cupboards lol
Cmon peeps you know its true!!!

What you're describing sounds almost like the Dripster, which I actually quite like. It holds ice which melts and extracts coffee as the ice water drips down onto the grind. Still unnecessary - your ground coffee actually goes stale as you brew - but a bit different.

But yeah, you don't need anything new to make cold brew other than an airtight glass/steel container (plastic is ) of some sort and preferably a way of straining away the grounds.

With you on all that other plastic crap you mention. Landfill.
