Pros: The Handi Home Cold Brew Coffee Maker's sturdy pitcher design makes it easy to brew and serve cold brew coffee. Its glass and stainless steel components are also quite easy to clean, including the filter.
Cons: The stainless steel mesh filter is only suitable for coarsely ground coffee; most pre-ground coffee is too fine.
What is the Handi Home Cold Brew Coffee Maker?
The Handi Home Cold Brew Coffee Maker is designed to make it easy to create, store, and serve your own cold brew coffee. Cold brew coffee is steeped overnight (for a minimum of 12 hours) to let the flavors fully permeate the water. It has up to 70% less acidity than regular coffee. Since it's already cold, it also won't need as much ice—and therefore won't end up as diluted as regular iced coffee.
All of the Handi Home Cold Brew Coffee Maker's components are made of either glass or stainless steel, making the whole thing easy to clean. And the filter is fine enough that it can be used for most types of loose leaf tea.
In-Depth Review of the Handi Home Cold Brew Coffee Maker
Voted the best home cold brew coffee maker, this Handi Home coffee brewing system is incredibly easy to use. All you need to do is fill the filter up with coarsely ground coffee and spin it in gentle circles until the brewing process begins.
Once the water starts changing color, put the whole thing in the fridge. Leave it there for anywhere from 12 to 24 hours. A longer brew period will mean a more flavorful drink.
The Handi Home Cold Brew Coffee Maker comes with a whopping 40 ounces of space, so you can make several cups of coffee at once. The cold brew can then be stored in your fridge for up to a week, so you can make an entire week's coffee in one go.
The one drawback of this cold brew machine is that it can be tricky to get the right grind at first. Many customers have said that it took them a full 2-3 weeks to find the right grind for a full, flavorful drink without any coffee grinds in it. This process may take even longer if you've never made cold brew coffee before.
Luckily the Handi Home Cold Brew Coffee Maker also comes with a 100% money back guarantee, no questions asked. And since you can often find it for under $30, it's not a particularly risky investment to begin with.
