Cold brew and iced coffee are the perfect way to get your caffeine fix on hot, humid summer days. The problem is time, cold brew can up to 24 hours to make. However, I’ve discovered that no matter what amount of time you have, there is a product that will let you enjoy your refreshing iced coffee.
If you are the type that plans ahead, the Primula 51oz Pace Cold Brew Coffee Maker may be the right choice for you. This maker makes the perfect café-quality iced coffee, but you will need 18-24 hours. As long as you stay on top of brewing, you just store it in the refrigerator and add milk and ice to taste. You can find this coffee maker at Target.
The Cuisinart Automatic Cold Brew Coffeemaker can be found at Williams Sonoma and makes ready-to-drink cold brew coffee in as little as 25 minutes.

The Zoku Iced Coffee Maker is available at Bed Bath & Beyond and turns piping hot coffee into a delicious chilled beverage in as little as five minutes. This ingenious coffee maker chills without ice so your beverage will not be diluted or watery. It is also great for making iced tea.
