During what will forever be known to us in the Beancraft office as The Cold Brew Pot Drought of 2021, we have been forced to get creative to get our cold brew fix.
With Hario Cold Brew pots out of stock, it occurred to us that the French press has a similar enough structure to a cold brew pot that it might yield serviceable cold brew coffee.
Think about what happens in a cold brew pot. The ground coffee is suspended in a basket which is then submerged in water. 15 hours later, the water has extracted deliciousness out of those beans, and you have yourself some cold brew coffee.
