If you are a coffee drinker that searches for the best mellow but full-bodied flavors, you’ve probably already stumbled across cold brew coffee. Known for a less bitter taste, cold brewing coffee extracts naturally delicious coffee flavors from ground beans, leaving behind undesirable acids and oils that traditional hot brewing cannot.  

So what’s left after cold brewing? A smooth, perfectly balanced concentrated coffee that is delicious when subtly diluted (or not, for those who prefer stronger coffee flavor).

Have we convinced you to try out this cool (pun intended) and unique way to enjoy your next cup of joe? Look no further. We tried, tested and reviewed the Hario Cold Coffee Maker and are here to share what we found.

Who is the Hario Cold Brew Coffee Maker For?

Of course, the Hario Cold Brew Coffee Maker is designed to do just that: brew cold coffee. The simple to understand design of the Hario Cold Brew Bottle makes this a perfect tool for even beginners to purchase. We think you’ll be just as happy as we were with how easy it is to brew a tasty cold brew concentrate. Better yet? The concentrate can be stored in a fridge for up to 2 weeks!

What Makes This Cold Brew Coffee Maker Special?

Hario is known for producing beautiful and well-made coffee brewing products. While this Hario Cold Brew Coffee Maker is strikingly simple in design, we love the modern look to it that is enhanced by the classic glass pitcher. Available in a few color choices, this bottle looks good while getting the job done. 

This model is ideal for those who want to experiment a bit with their cold brew. We encourage you to use a coarse grind for your beans, as this will ensure you do not end up with a sludgy and bitter mess of ground coffee at the bottom of your pitcher or cup. 

The Hario allows you to easily choose to add more (or less) than the recommended amount of grinds to your filter, which is nice for personalizing your cold brew to your flavor preferences. Just be sure to give your pitcher a good, but gentle swirl after adding the water.

Why Should I Buy This Cold Brew Coffee Maker? 

Here’s where the Hario shines: simplicity. It really doesn’t get easier than the Hario for cold brewing. An added bonus – not only is it super easy to brew coffee with this pitcher, it’s also simple to clean the minimal parts. While this bottle is dishwasher safe, we do recommend careful handwashing if you want your glass pitcher to last.

Also, we advise cleaning the filter with hot water as soon as you’re finished brewing. The bottom of the filter is even easily removable allowing for thorough cleaning. This will ensure you have a nice clean start for your next round of cold brewing.

Our Verdict

Top off the benefits already mentioned with the fact that the Hario Cold Coffee Maker is incredibly well priced, and we think it’s quite obvious why we can recommend it as a superb home cold brew maker. See what the hype is all about and try the Hario out for yourself today!
