One of the benefits of cold brew coffee is that it delivers all of that wonderful flavor with less of a bitter aftertaste. But the downside is that it can take a long time to make — up to 24 hours. That's no good when you want your caffeine fix ASAP. Fortunately, this Instant Cold Brew Electric Coffee Maker — yep, from the makers of Instant Pot — offers a solution. Instead of having to wait overnight, the machine will have you sipping your iced coffee in just 20 minutes. Grab it on sale for $50.
This genius machine works by "flash extracting" the coffee so that it can brew in cold water in a relatively short period of time. Simply insert your coffee grounds (it works best with a coarse or medium grind), pour in the water, and turn the machine on. You can adjust the strength of the coffee based on your preferences, too.
Not a fan of coffee? No problem. The Instant Cold Brew Electric Coffee Maker works for making cold brew tea as well. Just be sure to use loose-leaf instead of bags.
Best of all, cleanup is easy because everything from the pitcher to the filter basket is dishwasher-safe.
Amazon shoppers seem to love it too. This one loves it so much, they own two: "Simply add the grounds to the strainer basket and turn it on. I use cold water from the fridge. Sometimes I drink it immediately, but sometimes I toss it in the fridge for even longer brewing beyond the max 30 minutes it will run. Cleanup is very easy, and its compact design doesn't take up much room on the counter. I have even put it in my suitcase and traveled with it! I love it so much that I have now bought a second one to keep at my vacation place."
"I had my doubts about 'fast' cold brew, but this thing is great," said another five-star review. "I used Starbucks ground coffee and had zero issues. I followed instructions and used 32 ounces of water and 7 scoops of coffee. I used heaping scoops because I wanted it strong. I brewed for 30 minutes and it came out perfect! Note that it starts and stops. It's supposed to perform that way. I was worried about ending up with coffee grounds in my beverage but it didn't happen! Tastes just like Starbucks in my opinion. This will save me so much money. Highly impressed!"
"I’ve used my new Instant Cold Brew Brewer a few times now, and I am enjoying it," said a satisfied shopper. "You just use room temp water, so I’ve been using water straight from the tap. It is very easy to operate. Add your water, then put the filter in and add your coffee scoops, press the touch screen to increase it to the time that you want to use, and hit start. When finished, I open the lid, remove the filter, put the lid back on and turn to open. I then pour it over ice."
