Today we are looking at a very interesting product that might change the start of your every and I mean EVERY day. For your interest, we have reviewed OXO Good Grips Cold Brew Coffee Maker (buy on Amazon). We know, we know everybody loves their hot coffee and we can’t change that, but all we ask is give the Cold Brew Coffee Maker a chance. You will be pleasantly surprised by this excellent product.
So what is cold brew coffee? When cold-brewing, coffee grounds do not come into contact with hot water and gives us a less acidic and less bitter flavor for our coffee. This process opens up most smooth and aromatic flavors of coffee.
When cold brewing coffee, you make a concentrate for up to 12-14 servings and can keep it in the fridge to make hot or cold coffee in the future.
OXO Good Grips Cold Brew Coffee Maker uses ultra-fine stainless steel mesh filter that is reusable and cleans with ease. Their perforated Rainmaker distributes water evenly to extract optimal flavor.
OXO Good Grips did a great job designing this cold brew coffee maker. Their borosilicate glass carafe has measurement markings if you want to be extra precise and an easy switch that activates or turns off the filtration process.
Engineers implemented additional neat feature that prevents making a mess. If you remove the carafe from under the maker it automatically stops the filtration process.
After making a batch of coffee concentrate, which can produce you roughly 12-14 beverages, you can use a silicone seal on the carafe to keep the coffee concentrate fresh in the fridge. While the other parts of the coffee maker stack up for easy storage.
Use and Looks
This Cold Brew Coffee Maker looks amazing on the kitchen top. It has this smoked-plastic color and sits like a tower in the kitchen, in addition, the scientific looking carafe caught everybody’s eyes and was a great conversation starter.
We have never used a cold-brew coffee maker before, but OXO Good Grips made it real easy to make cold coffee. You just put the ground coffee in, pour the water, turn on the switch and wait!
After making the concentrate we did a taste test with 4 friends and everybody loved it! Most people told that aroma and flavor is much deeper and everybody agreed that this coffee is much less acidic. For this reason I can’t wait to show a couple of my friends that love but cannot drink coffee because of its acidity levels.
OXO Good Grips makes great quality products and their Cold-Brew Coffee Maker is not an exception, marvelous carafe, dark smoky color body that sits nicely on your table top and invites guests to ask questions about. If you are short of space just stack it up and put in the cabinet.
As an add-on to great quality OXO Good Grips customer service is spectacular as well, they answer all your questions fast and solve problems quite fast. We even heard that some people were interested to replace their carafe after dropping and shattering them and OXO Good Grips replaced them with a new one for free. Bravo OXO Good Grips!
Cold brewing coffee is an interesting not very widely spread method. We personally tried it and at the moment do not see why it could not replace our current hot coffee habits. The only thing you need to remember is to start brewing ahead of time, you will need at least 5 minutes for your first doze of coffee to be brewed.
A big impulse to use cold-brew coffee is its lower acidity levels. Just tasting my first cold-brewed coffee cup I tasted less acidic coffee right away. I remember sometimes having 4-5 coffee mugs a day and having stomach pains from high acidity. Imagine what difference it would make for people who can’t consume high acidity products. People who don’t drink coffee because of its acidity would be able to enjoy coffee again! I know for sure I will bring the news about this coffee maker to at least two of my friends who stopped drinking coffee because of their digestive disorders.
I know there will be many skeptics saying we should not fix things that are not broke, but everyone should try it. Why not have coffee concentrate with no grains made ahead of time and just add ice for ice-coffee or hot water for same fresh hot coffee as you make every morning? So far I like it and might continue using OXO Good Grips Cold Brew Coffee Maker.
So from all the positive vibes here, you can see we are giving OXO Good Grips Cold Brew Coffee Maker a big compliment. The superb quality and price make it one of the best cold brew coffee makers on the market. Our final score is 9.5/10 and we strongly recommend trying it out!
