This is the original cold brewing system. The carafe in this product is made of Polycarbonate instead of glass, and so is virtually indestructible while imparting no flavor at all to the coffee. The exclusive “tip’n’pour” flask is also a real plus.

If you want to reduce the natural acidity from your coffee, Filtron's Cold Water Brewer is the system for you. It is ideal for people with sensitive stomachs. The best part of the system is the great coffee. It's perfect for hot coffee, iced coffee and blended coffee drinks.

Here's how to do it:

  • Soak the filter pad in water before use. Store in plastic container with fresh water in your refrigerator after every use.
    (plastic container and lid provided)
  • Place a soaked filter pad in recess in bottom of coffee bowl by arching center of filter and firmly pushing edges into recess. Note: properly placed filter will dome in center.
  • Push/twist the rubber stopper up through the drain hole firmly from the bottom of the coffee bowl.
  • Fill the coffee bowl with 3/4 to 1 pound of coarsely ground coffee.
  • Place Grounds Guard on the top of coffee grounds.
  • Place water bowl onto coffee bowl.
  • Add 48-56 oz.of cold, fresh water. Leave at room temperature to steep for 9 to 12 hours.
    Note: If using our paper coffee filters with your Filtron unit, follow the instructions for placing the filter pad in bowl, put in the plug, then place one paper filter in coffee bowl, add coffee and place grounds guard on top of filter flutes.
  • Place the coffee bowl over the coffee decanter and remove stopper. Let the concentrate slowly filter into the decanter.
  • Store in your refrigerator up to six weeks, or transfer to a freezer-proof container and freeze.

I've been using Filtron Brewers since 1976. I have had 2 of them and I love them. I did get away from them when I opened a Roasting Company because they use a lot of coffee compared to a percolator (which still brews the best coffee). The Filtron produces such great coffee that even Folgers can taste quite smooth and good. If you have never had a cold brew extract cup of coffee, there are 2 rules. 1) Avoid Starbucks as you will still get low grade burnt used motor oil and it will mess up your filter for some time and 2) never try the cold brew after a drip coffee or espresso as the oils from the brewed coffee will alter the flavor of the cold brew for the worse. This is a great product if cold brew extract appeals to you!!!!

I used my original Filtron from the mid 1970s until now. I treated myself to a new brewer last month. I live in New Orleans and use my favorite decaf coffee and chicory . Even decaf is great with the Filtron. I tried a Toddy. Used it once and gave it away. Filtron is the only system I will use from now on!

Have an old one my mom used to use from the 1960’s- this one is much more compact, but gives the same rich flavor!

The Filtron system is very simple to use, and it produces a cold brew extract that is much better than anything I have tried commercially produced. It comes with a plastic carafe, but I suggest going to the Filtron website to order another. You will need it. Not because you will want to bring up another pound and brew more, but because you will get a second extraction from the same grounds which is almost as strong as the first. Each extraction will yield about 2/3 of a carafe.

I used a your cold water brew system 50+ years ago and loved it then. With the recent interest in cold water brewing, I thought I would see if the filtron is still available. So, I have come full circle, once again using the filtron. Thanks for being there.

I was introduced to this system a couple of years ago by a friend who could always offer me a cup of fresh coffee. I finally bought one to try and absolutely love it. It's easy, the coffee is delicious and I can easily make a cup of fresh coffee whenever I want. I'm a big coffee drinker, so this is a big plus for me. I'm so hooked on the taste that I usually bring a container with me when I travel.

I have been using the Filtron since the late 1980's. I put it away for awhile and then resurrected it about 6 years ago. I gave my original to a friend and now have a second one. I will never not use it again. It makes coffee house coffee taste bitter to me. I use Trader Joe's organic Awake Blend. Delicious. I bought an electric kettle a few years ago. At night I pour some cold brew in a small carafe on my counter so coffee is room temp in the morning. Then in the morning I just put the kettle on and I have the best coffee ever in a very short time. I always do a second brew. Uses a bit more cold brew for a cup but still tastes great and saves a bit of money .

I have been using the cold brew system for a while now, and I love it. I used to like only percolator coffee. But this is so much more robust and flavorful.

Functions Great! Makes a great cup of coffee. My only wish is that the filtron was more attractive. It's not very cute. I would absolutely leave it out if there was more attention to detail regarding its design aesthetic. Would definitely pay more for something that looked nicer that I could leave out on the counter.

Good taste, no electricity required, simple design. Bit of a hassle to wait so long for a brew.
