OXO Cold Brew Coffee Maker ($50)

OXO’s Cold Brew Maker simplifies the cold-brew process to deliver smooth, low-acid coffee concentrate. All you have to do is add grounds and water to the coffee maker and then steep overnight. What they call “The Rainmaker” (coolest name of a device component in my opinion) will evenly distribute water over the grounds. The coffee maker comes apart for cleaning and nests nicely when not in use. During the summer, you can also use it to brew tea!


Crofton Cold Brew Coffee System ($12.99)

The Crofton Cold Brew Coffee System features a silicone grip and an easy pour spout. With a 44.8 ounce capacity, this coffee system makes 4 servings of cold brew in a glass pitcher with a stainless steel mesh filter. Available at Aldi


Takeya Cold Brew Maker ($35)

If you like simple, this coffee maker is for you. This easy-to-use coffee maker has a handy thermal design and an implemented brewing mechanism to create remarkably rich, concentrated coffee. Once finished, remove the brewer, and enjoy!


KitchenAid 28oz Cold Brew Maker ($99)

This cold brew maker takes up minimal space on a counter or refrigerator shelf and has a stainless steel steeper with level markings, a stainless steel tap, and an easy-to-clean glass reservoir.


Alfred Stainless Steel Straws ($8)

For the environmentally friendly, these engraved stainless steel straws offer you style while staying sustainable. Pick between a regular-size rose gold set or a boba-size rose gold set. Each set comes with 2 straws, carrying pouch and cleaning brush.


No-Spill Ice Cube Tray ($10)

One way to ensure your cold brew is never watered down at home is to create coffee “ice” cubes to use in place of traditional cubes. Thanks to the innovative silicone lid, you can fill to the brim without spilling on the way from the sink to the freezer, and store the Ice Cube Tray in any position — even at an angle. Simply fill with coffee, press the silicone lid over the Tray and smooth while pouring out excess water.


Coffee Joulies ($49.95)

These little beans have material inside the steel shell that begins to melt as soon as it hits hot coffee, quickly cooling it to a manageable temperature. Once your beverage reaches the perfect drinking temperature, the liquid interior begins to solidify again, keeping the temperature stable and your drink warm enough to enjoy for a longer-than-usual period of time.


Bodum Electric Milk Frother ($30)

This frother was designed to make you a professional barista without having to leave your home. The convenient cord storage in the removable base is perfect if you plan to leave out on the kitchen counter or store in a small space.
