Cold brew baby ! The Kinto jug is both affordable, durable and very easy to use. The jug also dishwasher friendly. It is made in Japan. Simply put 60 Grams coffee in the filter section. Pour one litre of cold water over the coffee. Leave it in the fridge overnight. In the morning the cold coffee will be ready to drink.
The filter is permanent hardware so no need for filter papers. Simply clean it after every use and it’s ready for the next brew. The lid of the jug seals well and so you are able to lay the jug down sideways in the fridge when storing coffee (but not when brewing it).
It is brown and transparent in colour and has a capacity of 1.2 litres, this is the most straight forward cold coffee brewing system available. The dimensions are Height 270 x Width 150 x Diameter of 95mm. Note the recommended coffee to water ratio is 60 Grams of coffee to one litre of mineral water.

See our guide to making cold brew coffee. Well worth the read. Also more recently we have been experimenting more with this genre. This has lead to the writing of the cold brew diaries. A test of various Happy Donkey coffee blends and origins with the Kinto jug.
The Kinto cold brew jug really is the best all round cold brew maker. At this price what it does for the money truly is a gift. This brewing method tends to work better with blends of coffee. Single origins can be refreshing but a bit one dimensional.
Coffee like our java plus and the world famous Classic Brazilian are ideally well suited to the genre. Made in the jug these two coffees will blow anything away you can buy ready made in the supermarket for 5% of the price ! Ideal gift and good fun to use and try. Go careful, it’s addictive !
