The cold brew coffee trend has been surging over the last few years. And it’s with many good reasons too.
Cold-brewers are relatively so easy to set up and use.
Instead of learning proper pouring or brewing techniques, you simply ground your coffee to a coarse setting, add room temperature water, and let the two sit together in a cool place or refrigerator for a long period of time. Almost no acidity occurs because of the milder brewing process. For people with sensitive stomachs or heartburn, cold brew reduces stomach discomfort.
Once the cold brew concentrate is made you’ve got a whole range of options what you can do next. You can add sugar and cream for a rich morning drink. You can add sparkling water for a summer spritzer. The way you drink your cold brew is only bound by your imagination. Enjoy this list of large batch cold brewers, just in time for the summer heat.

We hope that some of the brewers on this list will help you make a good amount of cold brew that will satisfy. The reason why so many people are switching to cold brewed coffee is that it not only tastes great but its extraction process lends to a lesser acidic coffee. Hot water helps to expedite the extraction process, but as it does so, it warms up the natural oils, fats, and soluble present in the coffee. This will alter the chemical composition and produce a more bitter aftertaste when cooled.
Cold brewing uses time instead of heat to extract those same fats, oils, and soluble but leaves the taste very much intact. If you’re interested in more coffee knowledge then we suggest you check out our many reviews and insights here.
