How to Use the Asobu Cold Brew Coffee Maker
To make this, all you do is add a scoop of coffee grounds to the infuser at the top and then pour filtered water on top in a circular motion. The directions recommend doing those steps in small batches three times until the basket and brewer are both full, no paper filters necessary. I love that the infuser has very small holes so coarse grounds can't sneak through (which was a problem I always had with my cold-brew french press device).
After letting it steep for 12-24 hours (right on the countertop, no fridge needed!), just press a button and the coffee drains from the top into the thermos down below. It makes around 30 ounces of coffee, which works out to about 5-6 servings for me, once ice and milk are added to the 40-ounce container. Plus, since it brews directly into a metal thermos that stays sealed airtight in the fridge, you can also easily just take it to the park or back to the office — leaving a midmorning refill at your fingertips with no extra travel cup needed.
