This beautiful and unusual coffee brewer makes great coffee and brings drama to your cafe or kitchen. Through a unique 3 hour process using pure ice water, ice drip coffee produces a unique flavor not found in regular brewed coffee.
Although it looks like complicated lab equipment, this Kyoto inspired Oji style Cold Brewer is very easy to use. Just ice and cold water in the top chamber, set the valve to drip, put ground coffee in the middle chamber and you're good to go.
The entire brew process takes about 3 hours and produces about 32 oz of smooth, rich coffee that is very low in acidity. The coffee will keep for up to 7 days in a sealed container in your refrigerator. By slowly brewing your coffee with ice water, the harsher oils in your ground coffee are not brought out. The final brew is a lot mellower than a regular brew machine. After the brew is done, it will be very concentrated so you will have to dilute it to your taste (with ice for cold coffee, or water for hot coffee). To heat the coffee up, you can microwave or heat it on the stove. Because of the cold brew process, microwaving the coffee does not affect it's flavor as it does with traditional hot brew techniques!
Reclaim your morning: Many coffee lovers find regular brewed coffee too acidic. According to the National Heartburn Alliance, of the estimated 54 million Americans who suffer heartburn, 75% say beverages such as coffee can cause it.
For the tens of millions of coffee lovers who suffer from acid sensitivity, it's time for some good news. Cold-brewed coffee - served steaming HOT or iced cold.
Although a favorite among millions of coffee drinkers - from regular folk to connoisseurs - for more than forty years, many consumers are only now discovering the benefits of cold-brewed coffee.
Using one's favorite brand of coffee, cold-brewing ground beans produces a coffee that is naturally low in acid - approximately 67% less acidic than coffee brewed by conventional hot-brew methods such as a Mr. Coffee-type system. And, there's no waste. Cold-brewed coffee can be made one cup at a time, and at the strength you prefer, simply by adding STEAMING HOT or iced cold water or milk. It's also microwavable!
