It’s larger than most coffee makers.
It’s an excellent Father’s Day present for the more discerning coffeeholic Dads. Cold-brewing uses time, rather than heat, to draw out the essence from the coffee grounds. The perforated Rainmaker distributes water evenly throughout the coffee grounds. Prolonged soaking in cold water for 12 to 24 hours releases only the most aromatic flavors to produce a refined and full-bodied extract. The cold brew concentrate is less bitter and stays fresh much longer than heat-brewed coffee. The flip switch empties the brewing container while the reusable stainless-steel mesh filter keeps sediments off the carafe. Dilute the extract with hot or cold water, ice, or milk. The carafe can be sealed to store the coffee extract in the refrigerator for up to two weeks without losing its flavor and freshness.
