Hi all,

Any folk on the forum has tried cold water brewed coffee?

Following equipment looks quite interesting to me.

Cold Water Brewer 5 cups
Click Here (tiamoeurope.com)

Taiwan also produces similar products.

Is there any way to make it at home?

I tried cold brewed coffee more than ten years ago.  It was very smooth.  Pre-order was needed.  There was no drop-in service.  Unfortunately it is NOT available here anymore.

You could simply brew in a jar, then pour through any coffee filter.

I brew cold all the time. It is great in summer or traveling. I keep it in stainless steel water bottle. I like cold coffee drinks. I use a pitcher and strain it through a jelly bag.

Hi Coffeenoobie,

A further question:

In which corner of a departmental store shall I look for jelly bag or/and jelly bag with stands?  TIA

Macy's doesn't have a canning section, I get mine at feed stores that sell jelly jars.  Walmart often has them.  Look for canning supplies - now is a good time to look for them.  Much harder to find in the winter.  I got my stand and extra bags on sale end of the season last year. Also I am sure you can order them on line.  It is cheaper than a toddy and  I have used a toddy and I think it is not any harder.  I put it in my picther and let sit on the counter over night, stir once to start with.  Then pour it off slowly leaving most of the grounds in the container.  Then just let the bag drip into a large measuring cup with a spout and put that into my stainless water bottle. I found this in "No Frills" in Canada.

Thanks for your advice.

Actually with a glass jar, a funnel and coffee filtering paper I can start cold brewing coffer.  However I still want to purchase a set of cold_drip_ice_coffee.  It is nice for decoration.

Example
Yama Northwest Glass 25-Cup Cold Brew Drip Coffee And Tea Maker, Black Best Prices CDM-25B Yama Northwest Glass
Click Here (coffeemakerbe.blogspot.hk)

Korea and Taiwan have many similar products manufactured there.

On googling I found many threads discussing cold brew coffee and Siphon brew coffee.  They are quite interesting.  The equipment are nice for decoration.  But I need to sort out how to avoid boiling water with open fire.  It is NOT ideal to do it in a dining room.

This is how I do it.

I never liked iced coffee, it always seemed to diluted until I came across cold brewing. I usually use beans that are getting old or are old or roasts I am experimenting the profile with and they just don't work out for my tastes, not something I would do with beans that are hitting the mark for hot brews.
