Best Cold Brew Coffee Makers TechnoBuffalo 2021

Grabbing a coffee, fancy or not, from your local barista is expensive. Save some cash and make coffee the way you like it right at home with one of the best cold brew coffee makers. These are our favorite models this year.

Kitchenaid Cold Brew 38oz Render Cropped

The granddaddy of all: kitchenAid Cold Brew XL

Staff Favorite

Brew some java for yourself and a few friends with KitchenAid's XL cold brew machine. You'll get 19 servings of coffee from this model. The streamlined design looks sharp enough to sit on your countertop 24/7, yet it's compact enough to live in your refrigerator. A stainless steel tap dispenses fresh cold brew coffee. The internal steeper is labeled and tells you exactly what to add to get a perfect cup of joe.

Presto Myjo Render Cropped

A compact K-Cup kit for one: Presto MyJo

Your caffeine fix is simpler than ever with the Presto MyJo. Drop a K-Cup in the base, fill the reservoir with water, and place the MyJo in your refrigerator to brew. That's it! The MyJo comes with a microwavable cup, so you can make hot coffee or tea too. The MyJo works with K-Cups and is a hassle-free way to make cold brew for one.


Simple and delicious: County Line Kitchen Cold Brew Coffee Maker

If your grandmother enjoyed taking her caffeine cold, this is likely the type of setup she used. County Line Kitchen's offering comes with a 2-quart Ball mason jar with a flip lid and a stainless steel filter. It's simple but beautiful. Ground beans go in the filter, you seal up the jar, and let it turn into a satisfying elixir overnight. Brew, pour, and store your coffee in the same container. No mess, no fuss, just delicious coffee.


Best multipurpose: Toddy Cold Brew System

You'll save bundles of cash when you invest in the Toddy Cold Brew System because it does just about everything, giving you no excuse to stop at the coffeehouse before work. Brew hot coffee, cold coffee, and even tea with the Toddy. This brewing system includes a glass decanter, two reusable filters, a rubber stopper, a recipe book, and the best set of instructions we've seen.


Budget model: Primula Pace

The wallet-friendly Primula Pace holds 51-ounces of water in a borosilicate glass decanter, and it fits inside your refrigerator door, so it doesn't take up needed space. A silicone base prevents slips and also holds the Pace in place on countertops. Everything with the Pace is dishwasher safe. If you're looking to save a few bucks but still get your coffee fix, the Pace is worth every penny.


Make a lot of coffee: Ovalware RJ3

The Ovalware RJ3 is perhaps the coolest-looking cold brew system we tested, and it also makes a mean drink. The glass decanter holds 1 liter of water and has an airtight seal at the top that locks in freshness for up to two weeks. The filter and cap are stainless steel and rustproof. And did we mention that you can put everything in the dishwasher for easy cleaning?

If you want our recommendation

Coffee is a gift from the gods! If you like hot coffee, we recommend looking at the best smart coffee maker, a machine that does the heavy lifting for you. When it comes to cold brew, three coffee makers top my list.

Whether you like to keep a lot of coffee on hand or need to whip some up for guests, the KitchenAid Cold Brew is a great buy that earns its place on your counter with every use. It's simple to operate, easy to clean, and it takes the guesswork out of brewing perfect coffee. If you want a simple system that doesn't take up much room and is old school cool, we recommend the cold brew system from County Line Kitchen. You'll get everything you need to make a great cold brew, including a 2-quart Ball jar, stainless steel filter, and flip cap lid.

For penny pinchers and those without much room to spare, my favorite cold brew system is the Primula Pace. It's easy to use, has tight seals to hold flavor in, fits perfectly inside fridge doors, and the entire setup is dishwasher safe.
