Tall, dark, and elegant

The Oxo Cold Brew Coffee Maker might be mostly lightweight plastic, but it stands tall and is large enough to both brew and strain grounds.

Make it rain

The Oxo Cold Brew has a brewing chamber with a perforated lid, called the rainmaker, which can shower water droplets onto coffee grounds below.

Flip the switch for easy draining

Once brewed, just flip the release switch down to easily drain filtered cold brew away from the coffee grounds above.

Sit tight for 20 minutes

Draining coffee grounds fully with the Oxo Cold Brew Coffee Maker takes about 20 minutes.

A nod to brewing science

Oxo playfully designed the Cold Brew's glass carafe to resemble an Erlenmeyer flask, used by scientists in laboratories.

It's worth the wait

Even though making cold brew with this Oxo gadget takes 12 to 24 hours, the silky smooth, sweet drink you'll enjoy at the end is seriously worth your time.
