After months of experimenting, this is what I found works best: coarse grind by hand about 1lb of Coffee Bean Direct Indian Monsooned Malabar. Let it sit in the brewer for about 24 hours, then fill up the water container about half way and let it sit for another 24 hours. I drink 2 large cups of coffee a day and this lasts me about 10 days. To heat it up, I have an electric percolator connected to a digital timer so it's ready when I get up in the morning, and exactly the right temp - hot, but not mouth-burning hot. I use 6oz of concentrate to 20oz of water. What's nice about the concentrated coffee is that if you brew it a little weak, you just up the amount of concentrate you use! I've also used Kicking Horse Three Sisters coffee with very good results, and 8 O'Clock coffee. Medium roasts seem to do best. If anyone else has found a good coffee to use in the Filtron, please share!
It's simply a joy to use. You don't have to fuss over adding the water, carefully introducing it by hand to avoid dry pockets or sudden air bubble upheavals. Just set the reservoir on top and walk away. It never clogs. The proprietary filters last indefinitely if you take care to boil them clean from time to time. You don't have to stress about breaking the carafe.
I love this thing.
We have used it several times and can't get enough! We find ourselves shopping for more expensive, fine coffees for cold brew because we enjoy it so much more.
The system is very simple, a few pieces sit just right together, add coffee grounds, add water, let it sit, then drain into the carafe. You could probably make something at home to do the same thing, but this one works perfectly every time - so just buy it.
One issue we have had - we really like using the extra filtration of a large, industrial size coffee filter with the system. It comes with two, but we have not been able to find replacements. We have now ordered three different times through Amazon and returned every box because they were all too small. You don't have to use those, you can use the washable filter only, but we still end up having several grounds show up in the coffee.
I would also highly recommend purchasing paper filters, especially if you plan to follow the directions and make a second fill batch with half the water. The first time I tried that I only had the included cloth filter and the coffee grounds got so saturated and mushy that it never fully drained due to the smaller surface area of the cloth filter being obstructed. Also, my last batch I accidentally forgot the cloth filter (using only a paper filter) and found the results superior. The coffee tasted about the same but it drained so much faster
Anyway, just my $.02. I purchased this after reading the Sweethome review calling it the best for cold brew. It is serviceable but the amount of space it occupies is a big downside in addition to the quirks mentioned above. This makes good coffee but seems a bit steep at $40 for a few pieces of plastic, some with holes.
