Also know, are cold brew coffee makers worth it?
We say yes! If you love cold-brew coffee, or even iced coffee, it’s absolutely worth it to make a cold-brew concentrate to keep in the fridge, especially because a great cold-brew coffee maker will only set you back the cost of about 10 trips to the coffee shop.

How do you use a cold brew coffee maker?
So how long should you steep cold brew? You can’t go wrong with a cold brew steep time between 12 and 18 hours! If you’re steeping your cold brew on the counter, stick to the lower end, at around 12 to 14 hours. And if you’re brewing in the refrigerator, aim for 16 to 18.
Most of the OXO 8 Cup Coffee Maker’s housing and its thermal carafe are made from stainless steel. That said, all plastic used is BPA free.

Cold brew coffee is made by steeping ground coffee in water – a method known as immersion. However, cold drip is a percolation brewing method; this means that the water passes through a bed of coffee grounds, rather than the grounds being submerged in it – not unlike standard drip coffee.
Cold brew is made by steeping coarse coffee grounds in cold water for 12 to 24 hours. Iced coffee is exactly what it sounds like: regular brewed coffee poured over ice. To make it, you brew hot coffee using any brewing method. You can refrigerate this hot coffee or brew it directly over ice.
A ratio of 1:8 of coffee to water will produce a nice coffee ready to drink after around 24 hours at a coarse grind. Another option is to create a much stronger cold brew (named cold brew concentrate), by using a ratio anywhere from 1 part coffee to 4 parts water, up to around 1 part coffee to 2 parts water.
A coarse cold drip grind size is ideal for making cold drip coffee. Therefore, we recommend a grinding level of 9-10 out of 10 for any cold brew method. With cold brew coffee specialties, especially full immersion coffee, the coffee powder is immersed in water for hours.
Cold brew coffee is:
Great to drink for its refreshing qualities, convenience, forgiving brew method, and health benefits. Only stronger and only has more caffeine than hot coffee if you don’t dilute it as much as your regular cup. Able to last for a pretty long period of time in the fridge.
