For the great majority of coffee lovers, the combination of hot weather and iced coffee just makes perfect sense. The Cold Brew Bottle from Primula is an uncomplicated contraption designed to fulfill the need for that cold, black beverage. Let’s see how it performed, shall we?
Though simple to be sure, the Primula Cold Brew Bottle is a thing of coffee making wonder. The overall fit and finish of its constituent parts is right on, and though the permanent stainless steel filter looks and feels like it might be fragile, it has thus far held up through a month of making iced coffee. The black neoprene sleeve, which is included, helps make this borosilicate glass coffee making cylinder a bit more portable by providing some much-needed cushioning while it provides a layer of of insulation to help keep the contents cold. Sometimes it’s the little things that make a big difference.
Over the course of the last month, the Primula Cold Brew Bottle has done its duty roughly three times per week, and every time the end result is just fantastic. All it takes is four tablespoons of coarsely ground coffee, 16 ounces of cool water, and 12-24 hours of chill time. One thing to keep in mind, though, is that the bottle must be regularly agitated or you will either have to leave it in the refrigerator longer than the suggested 12-24 hours or you’ll have to deal with weak coffee, which is no bueno.
Overall, the product, itself, and the one that it produces is right on. The process takes very little practice or tweaking to get everything just right, and the fact that the Primula Cold Brew Bottle is totally portable makes it even better.
