Most of the cold brewers for coffee that I’ve seen lately take 12-24 hours to brew a pot. With the Cuisinart DCB-10 cold coffee brewer, you can brew a pot in as little as 25 minutes. Like other cold brewers where the coffee sits in the water and slowly extracts, the Cuisinart machine starts with cold or room temperature water. But Cuisinart’s “unique spin technology circulates coffee through water for total flavor extraction in a fraction of the time manual brewers require.”
The coffee grounds are never exposed to the high temperatures that extract the oils that cause bitterness, so your brew is smoother. There are three flavor strength settings, so you can brew the coffee the way you like it. The three brewing cycles are mild (25 min), medium (35 min) and bold (45 min). The coffee can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.
The DCB-10 comes with a 7-cup carafe and a steel filter. All removable parts are dishwasher-safe for easy cleanup. The Cuisinart DCB-10 is available for $81.84 at Amazon. Other retailers offer it for $99.99; check the Cuisinart site to locate a brick-and-mortar store.
