Give your dad the gift of delicious coffee (or tea!) overnight with our Cold Brew Coffee Maker. Steeping coffee grounds in cold water over time provides a less bitter and acidic brew that stays fresh longer than regular coffee. Just add grounds and water, then steep overnight, then enjoy resulting concentrate as hot or iced coffee.
