Do I Need A Cold Coffee Brewer?I thought, “What difference would a cold coffee brewer make? It’s going to taste the same as the one we brew hot and refrigerate overnight to cool.” Well, I was wrong. It’s not the same, and I wished I had discovered this sooner.I discovered the difference when I eventually decided to buy the Takeya 10310 Deluxe Patented Brew Iced Coffee maker.

See the video below for a demonstration.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GN0xlp41ED0You can put the brewed coffee away in the refrigerator for a whole day and the cold-brewed coffee tastes far better.Here are my observations about cold-brewed coffee and the Takeya cold coffee brewer;
- The regular hot brewing method we were using made the cold brew coffee bitter after it came out of the refrigerator. I discovered that the regular hot brewing method gives off unpleasant oils and acids that make the coffee unnecessarily bitter and acidic.
- My second observation about the Takeya Cold Coffee maker was that I was particularly pleased that the cold-brewed coffee could be kept for up to two weeks without becoming stale.
There was a slight issueAfter a few weeks of using the Takeya Cold Coffee maker, I noticed that the coffee grounds started popping up when I placed the filter in the water. As a result, the grounds were not steeped and did not brew.This issue didn’t alter both the taste and quality of the brewed coffee but I didn’t like the mess it created. The solution was to slowly insert the filter into the water and tap the carafe firmly. This helped the ground to sink without popping up.
Final ThoughtThe Takeya Deluxe Cold Brew coffee maker is a great product. I recommend it to cold-brewed coffee lovers.
