OXO Good Grips Cold Brew Coffee Maker | $40 | Amazon
Cold brew coffee is basically the only kind of coffee I like, and when there wasn’t a Starbucks readily available, I’d been using the popular Takeya cold brew pitcher for over a year to make it at home. That all changed when my mother-in-law got me OXO’s alternative as a gift a couple of years ago, and it quickly became one of my favorite possessions.
The Takeya is fine. Good, even, especially for under $20. But the reader-recommended OXO is absolutely stellar. The video above tells you everything you need to know about how it works, but I promise you that the coffee you get after 24 hours of steeping is potent, delicious, and and can easily last you over a week, even if you don’t dilute it as much as OXO recommends.
Its MSRP is $50, and as an OXO product, that’s about what you’ll typically pay. Right now though, you can get it for $40. They offer two options: the brewer with 10 filters, and the brewer with 50 filters for a lot more money, but don’t be alarmed. The paper filters are totally optional, and I’ve never used them.
