Love the caffeine boost and icy feeling from a cold brew? You can make it at home now!
Cold brew is the latest favorite among coffee drinkers. Its brewing method doesn’t involve any contact with heated water so the final brew is very low in acidity. Compared to traditional coffee, cold brew tastes naturally sweeter and smoother. It also contains a good amount of caffeine content because of the high bean-to-water ratio.
To make a cup of cold-brewed coffee, you’d have to steep the coffee grounds in chilled water for 12 to 24 hours. The more difficult part comes after the long wait, which is filtering out the coffee grounds from the water. The long brew hours and the filtering method make cold brew more expensive than regular iced coffee. If you want to enjoy a cup of cold brew in the summertime, you might have to pay more at coffee shops. But what if you can make your own at home?
A high school student in Detroit found a solution for cold brew lovers. Max Feber invented BRUW, a filter system made of two mason jars with double-sided lids. With BRUW, you can simply flip the mason jar upside down after steeping the coffee grounds for 12 hours. That’s it. The filter in between the lids will automatically filter out the coffee grounds and give you the perfect cold brew, served in a cute mason jar.
You can pre-order BRUW at $34.99 now. Get your hands on this awesome brewing kit before anyone else!
