Wholeheartedly agree with this suggestion! I bought this cold brew maker on Amazon for under $20 and use it religiously. It only makes a quart at a time, but you can dilute it 1:1 with water and it's still pretty strong. It's also not too large a profile, which is great if you share a fridge with roommates.
Only downside is that it takes a lot of coffee - 12-14 tbsp for one batch. However, this will be the case no matter where you get your cold brew from.
The food storage container/nut milk bag method is also a good way to make sun tea - for either coffee or tea, a glass half-gallon milk jug from Whole Foods does the trick perfectly.
I bought this and have been doing some trial and error of my own , cold brew maker
I have tried grinding it at a paper filter, metal, French press and a bit in between. I’ve found French press does work best and bring out the best flavor
Any course ground coffee (I like flavored coffees) will do. this is my coffee pitcher. Fill the basket with coffee, the pitcher with water (I use the water from my brita pitcher I keep in the fridge). Let it brew in the fridge overnight. Remove the grounds (so it doesn’t get bitter). Voila. Cold brew coffee.
Don't need to apologize.
Cold brew is just another way of making coffee. Instead of using hot water, this method uses cold water and therefore will take much longer to brew - about 12-18 hours.
Stick something like the below link in the fridge with your ground up beans and leave it in there for at least 12 hours and you'll get cold brew. [link]
I love this thing. I make it and then sometimes if I only drink half, I add more water and let it brew again.
Also are you using a bialetta on the stove? I have a 12 cup one and I love it so much, reading how much you hate it makes me want to cry.
Takeya Cold Brew Iced Coffee Maker, 1-Quart, Black [link]
100% way to go! You don't have to worry about needing to find the perfect water to coffee concentrate ratio. This doesn't make concentrate as it makes it right to drink!
Have you looked into cold brew? It takes way longer, so you won't want to brew a single cup at a time. This Takeya one is nothing more than rebox of one of their tea systems. The infuser even still says tea leaves on the bottom! None the less, it still works great as a pitcher (the infuser is removable), though I'm afraid I can't comment on how well it works as a cold brew setup as I haven't much experience with anything else.
I would say look into cold brewing if you're mixing with hot water anyways. I got this one recently and it's been great so far - just throw tea in at night, have concentrated tea ready in the morning, very little work.
Not sure how BIFL it is but it's a pretty simple thing - plastic and a screen. It also has the benefit of being less bitter than brewing with hot water.
I use one of these guys they make a larger one too that is marketed for iced tea, but seems to be essentially the same.

This thing is pretty similar to the one I use. Just add your ground coffee to the middle portion, add your water to fill, let sit in fridge overnight.
Also useful for making iced tea from loose leaf teas. I can't speak to quality as this isn't the exact one I have but there's many similar contraptions.
takeya pitcher for the win!! With the stone street cold brew grind from amazon as well.
Thank you for such an awesome contest.
Interesting fact:i had scarlett fever at 32 weeks pregnant. I didnt even know it still existed and thought nothing of the rash until an elderly lady came in and told me i needed to go to the hospital then left. Had to give son meds to prepare for early birth and he was born 2 weeks later. I am still so thankful for her to come into my store that day. ♡♡♡♡
spoil me! - i would love to have a cold brew coffee maker. Currently just have a regular coffee maker but my favorite is cold coffee and this would make my life easier. But really would love anything from my wishlist. As moms we tend to overlook our self and so little indulgences like this are very special to my heart. So thank you again for this contest.

Good luck everyone and merry christmas!!!
I have this one and it's great. Less than $20 and it's super easy to make. Just pop your grounds into the filter and take it out when it's ready.
I got this one from Costco. Easier to clean than a French press in my opinion
Buy one of these and use heavy cream and almond milk. It will tastes smooth you won't need sweetener.

this link still working for me, got 3x5c links. this is from last week.
I just ordered a Takeya cold brewer. There's also the Hario.
Both are Japanese companies, but they make a submerged cold brew, rather than a drip. Submerged is stronger and more robust, while a cold drip is "brighter" with enhanced flavor clarity.
