OXO Cold Brew Coffee Maker
Part of a balanced breakfast!
Whether you are a daily coffee fanatic or prefer the occasional casual cup
You’ll love the taste of cold brew coffee made with the OXO Cold Brew Coffee Maker.
What is cold brew coffee?
The cold-brew coffee making process is known for delivering smooth, low-acid coffee. The grounds never come in contact with hot water, resulting in a less acidic, less bitter flavor. Steeping the grounds in cold water releases only the most aromatic flavors, so you can wake up to fresh coffee concentrate every day for delicious hot or cold coffee without the acidity.
We've simplified the Cold Brew coffee making process:
- Fill the top Brewing Container with coarse ground coffee
- Add cold water following our suggested recipe
- After 12—24 hours flip the Brew-Release switch to start the draining process
- Concentrate stays fresh for up to two weeks in your fridge
- Simply add hot or cold water, and enjoy!

Making Your Coffee Beverage
We recommend a 1:2 or 1:3 ratio of coffee concentrate to water or milk. Our 10 oz coffee recipe yields about 12-14 beverages.
- If you prefer your coffee hot, simply add 4-6 oz of hot water or milk to your 2 oz of concentrate.
- Granulated sugar is difficult to dissolve in a cold beverage; to sweeten your drink, we recommend simple syrup.

The cold-brew process is known for delivering smooth, low-acid coffee. Since the grounds never come in contact with hot water, the result is a less acidic, less bitter flavor. Steeping the grounds in cold water releases only the most aromatic flavors and the concentrate created from the cold-brew process stays fresh longer than regular coffee. Our Cold Brew Coffee Maker simplifies the cold-brew process with its unique features. For example, the Rainmaker ensures water is distributed evenly over coffee grounds, the Brew-Release Switch is easily accessible and allows you to stop and start the draining process and the stainless steel ultra-fine mesh filter is removable for easy cleaning. The Coffee Maker has all the hard work covered - all you have to do is add coffee grounds and water. Once you make the concentrate, you can add ice and water for iced coffee or hot water or milk for hot coffee. Tea-lover? You can use the same process to cold brew tea! With a flick of a switch, our stainless steel filter strains your favorite tea into a sealable, glass carafe.For best results, use coarsely ground coffee with the OXO Cold Brew Coffee Maker. Finer grounds may prevent the Coffee Maker from draining properly.

If you are new to cold brewing and trying to decide whether to try it, I will say that it makes the best coffee, in my opinion. It brings out a lot of flavor, without the bitterness. The biggest con to cold brew in general, is when you forget to make it...
Things that are better on this vs the Toddy:
This one has a valve instead of a cork to drain the coffee, which is not only easier in general; but, I usually get the first cup early in the morning, and then let it brew a few more hours for my wife to drain when she gets up. With the Toddy, I have to pull the cork, get what I want, then reinsert the cork, leaving a few ounces on the counter and my scale to clean up. This one, I can just close the valve, with no mess. Another benefit is that there is no separate cork to be lost.
I like the mesh filter better than the felt ones of the Toddy, and I like how it is held in place, so my kids cannot loose it when they dump the grinds into the compost. It also never needs replaced. We are using the paper filters which are as good as the felt one of the Toddy at keeping the grit out.
I like the stand this one has better than balancing the brewer on the carafe to drain it.
The directions for this one are way easier. You could really make the coffee either way, with either maker. While this one's directions are easier, the Toddy's method drains quicker.
Things that are not as good:
This does not make as much as the Toddy does at a time. Following the directions, we get 24 oz of concentrate (10 oz coffee grinds and 40 oz water). But, there is a lot of head space in this one to increase the amount you make if you do not use the rainmaker. As long as you stick with the 1 ounce coffee grinds to 4 ounce water, you can make more or less. With my last batch I did 12 oz of coffee grinds with 48 oz water; which is what the current directions with the Toddy calls for (28 oz of concentrate); but believe I could do 14 oz of coffee and 56 oz of water if I fill it to the brim (33 oz concentrate). With the Toddy, we followed the old directions and used 16 oz of coffee grinds and 64 oz water (38 oz concentrate). In conclusion, the Toddy can make 2 1/2 more servings than this one can. I doubt anyone will find this math as interesting as I do, but though I should include it for completeness.
This brewer drains slower, but I am pretty sure it is due to stiring the coffee/water mixture, per the directions. When I stired the mixture in the Toddy it took longer to drain also. So, I guess regardless of which brewer you use, if you want quick draining, use Toddy's method; and if you want fewer steps in making it, use this one's method. I can live with the longer draining, because we have always just leave it sitting on the counter for a few hours until we remember it is there anyway.
The paper filter has to be replaced with each brew versus the felt filter of the Toddy's needing replaced every... however long it lasts. I do not know which would be cheaper in the long run, but the paper filter is optional. I have been using the paper filters, but will try my next batch without it, to see how much of a difference it makes.
If I think of anything else I will update this.
First, a quick background: the cold-brew method is a straightforward way to produce coffee that does indeed have lower acidity. I'm not concerned about acidity. I like having cold-brew coffee on hand because iced coffee has a better taste when made with cold-brew concentrate than when made with a pot of hot coffee that you refrigerate. The cold-brew method is dead simple: combine coarsely ground coffee with good water and let the mixture sit undisturbed for about a day (there is no need to refrigerate while brewing). Then, dispense the results through a filter into a pitcher. The end result is a concentrate that will make a dozen or so glasses of iced coffee.
Second, a consistent coarse ground is important. If you don't have your own burr grinder, ask your local coffee roaster to grind it for you. Less expensive "whirly blade" grinders will produce a mixture of coarse and fine grounds that will mess with the results and possibly clog the filter.
Third, no matter which brewer you get, experiment a little! Toddy and OXO use slightly different proportions (OXO says 10 oz of coffee for 1200 ml of water, while Toddy says 12 oz of coffee for 1650 ml of water). They also use slightly different methods for combining the coffee and water (OXO says put in all the coffee at once, followed by the water, and then stir. Toddy wants you to layer the coffee and water, but says not to stire.) Which technique is correct? Whichever technique you like the best. Play around with the technique. Try varying the grind. Try varying the kind of coffee that you use. The "best technique" is the one that you like the most.
OK...with that out of the way, here are the main differences between this OXO cold brewer and the Toddy cold brewer:
* The FILTER: This is the most important part of the entire brewer. OXO provides a metal filter, while Toddy has a fibrous "wafer" filter. The big difference? The metal filter from OXO will inevitably allow a bit more sediment and coffee oils into the resulting concentrate. The metal filter has a very fine mesh, so the sediment is minimal, but it is noticeable. OXO acknowledges this by providing a few disposable paper filters and some supplementary instructions that explain that some people might prefer the paper. It does not appear that OXO sells replacement paper filters. I have some paper filters for my Aeropress Coffee and Espresso Maker that are slightly larger, and might work, but I cannot vouch for them. OXO's including the paper filters struck me as a last-minute decision. I think there must have been some gripes about the results from the metal filter. I slightly prefer the Toddy approach to filters (note the filters are not interchangeable...you can't use Toddy filters in the OXO brewer). [UPDATE: Paper filters for this OXO brewer are available...OXO Good Grips Cold Brew Coffee Maker Replacement Paper Filters, Brown, 50 Per Box]
* The TECHNIQUE: OXO's brewer has a couple more parts to it than Toddy. This includes a "Rainmaker" to help disperse the water as it is poured. More importantly, OXO has a switch that you flip up while the coffee is brewing, and down when it is time to dispense the coffee into the pitcher. By contrast, Toddy's brewer has a rubber cork in the bottom of the brewer. When it is time to dispense the coffee, you need to reach under the brewer and pop out that cork. Here, OXO is a clear winner. The on/off switch makes it much easier. However, Toddy's cork-removal approach never really bothered me in the first place. But, if you are a flip-a-switch kind of person, rather than a pop-a-cork kind of person, then the OXO choice is a no-brainer. Because the OXO has more individual parts to the system, setup seems a bit more complicated. But really, both systems are simple to use.
* The APPEARANCE: OXO wins this one. OXO's smoked-plastic tower looks much nicer on my kitchen counter than the white-plastic Toddy that has to rest on a glass pitcher.
Still, despite some differences between the OXO and Toddy cold-brewers, either is a good choice. OXO has a fine reputation for well designed kitchen equipment. Toddy has a solid reputation for its home and commercial cold-brewers. Both systems produce a fine cup of iced coffee. Either way you go, you will be happy.
