Do you like a refreshing and smooth cold-brew coffee every morning? Do you hate paying upwards of $4 at Starbucks every morning too? Don’t have enough spending cash for coffee because you’re a broke college student?
Maybe it’s time to make your own with this cold-brew coffee maker from KitchenAid. It’s now on sale for $70, or $30 off its retail price on Amazon. This cold-brew coffee maker is great for just about any coffee lover, especially for college students going back to school in the fall. It’s a great way to save money on your morning routine, so you could spend it on better meal plans.
Normally priced at $100, the KitchenAid Cold-Brew Coffee Maker is built from stainless steel and glass for a premium and streamlined design that’s the perfect addition for your kitchen countertop or refrigerator. It features a tap that dispenses cold brew with ease.
“I love cold brew coffee and was really excited to make my own!,” wrote a very thirsty Amazon reviewer. “I had no idea how easy and economical it would be, but more importantly how delicious! This cold brew set up is the perfect size, easy to use and clean and seems to be made of quality materials.”
Here’s how it works
This coffee maker produces up to 28 ounces of cold-brew coffee concentrate that stays fresh for up to two weeks when stored in a refrigerator. Just add nine ounces of coarsely ground coffee into its included steeper and then 34 ounces of cold water. Then place its lid on top of the steeper to brew for 12 to 24 hours.
Once the brewing time is finished, lift the steeper and drain the excess coffee. Now combine two ounces of coffee concentrate with six ounces of water, ice, and milk for the best cup of coffee you’ve ever made every morning.
“This cold brew maker is amazing. I haven't had a bitter cup of hot coffee since I've owned this, which has been about a month,” a delighted Amazon reviewer wrote. “It makes cold brew concentrate, which means 1 part coffee and 3 parts water. This lasts me 2 weeks and has saved me loads of money. A few dollars for half a pound of coffee grounds lasts 2 weeks. The glass and stainless steel are of good quality.”
The reviewer then added: “I never have coffee grounds in my cup. Overall, this product has changed the name of my coffee game. I add some creamer and am off, no wait time to make a cup of coffee. 5 stars!”
Great for back-to-school too
The KitchenAid Cold-Brew Coffee Maker is also great for students going back to school, especially with the demands of being in college. Cold-brew coffee just might be the thing to get students up and running in the morning or awake and alert during late nights studying for exams.
“I drink at least one cup of coffee every day,” wrote a college student on Amazon. “With that comes heartburn almost every day. I didn't even realize regular hot brewed coffee was so acidic but since I've gotten this cold brewer I have not once gotten heartburn from coffee! And the coffee it makes is so smooth and concentrated, one cup (which is a VERYYY small amount of coffee concentrate) gets me through the whole day.”
If you’re spending way too much money on the same Grande (medium sized) cold-brew at Starbucks, then perhaps it’s time to make your own cold-brew coffee at home with the KitchenAid Cold Brew Coffee Maker.
You’ll save a lot of money in the long run, while you can also save time making cold-brew coffee at home instead of driving to Starbucks, waiting in line to order, and then waiting again to receive your morning beverage. Trust us, this cold-brew coffee maker will definitely perk up your mornings.
