Although it may look more like a laboratory tool than a coffee maker, the Yama Cold Brew Drip Tower prepares a tasty iced beverage. Also known as Toddy coffee, cold brewing refers to the process of steeping coffee grinds in cold water over a prolonged period.
The result of this lengthy procedure is a sweeter, less acidic flavor profile. Iced coffee aficionados will appreciate the lack of bitterness that often comes from traditional steeping methods. The Yama Cold Brew Drip Tower requires users to fill the top of the contraption with ice water, then add the filter and grinds to the lower vessel.
It takes a full five to eight hours for all the liquid drips to get to the bottom beaker, so consider doing this overnight and storing your creation in an air-tight container afterwards.
