Our New Favourite Gadget: Asobu Coldbrew Insulated Brewer

Layla Osberg - May 25, 2018

Just in time for Father's Day! We get a few pointers on brewing the perfect cold brew from our in-house coffee expert.

Travis has been cold brewing at home for years - he generously shares with us his adventures in home-brewing experimental iced tea and coffee blends. So, when the weather started warming up - there was only one person to call upon to show us how to make our first cold brew of the season using the Asobu Coldbrew Insulated Portable Brewer.

About the Asobu Brewer

This is an innovative contraption for making cold brew coffee. The process combines coarsely ground coffee, cold water and a long steeping time. The resulting coffee is smooth, delicious and versatile and can be enjoyed anywhere cold or hot.

FEATURES:

  • Insulated Steel Carafe that is great for on the go
  • 100% LEAK PROOF Lids
  • Keeps coffee fresh and cold for hours
  • Portable and lightweight

If you are looking to make cold brew at home that tastes like it was made by the pros, try the Asobu Insulated Portable Brewer. Available at Murchie's retail locations or by phone order.

How to Brew

Assemble your Asobu.

We used 3oz of Murchie's Government Street coffee beans ground medium/course.

Remove the lid.

Place the ground coffee in the filter.

Pour COLD filtered water slowly and evenly in a circular motion over the grinds.

Watch for the coffee level, and continue filling to the brim.

All the coffee grinds should be saturated.

Place the lid on top, and allow to steep for 12 to 18 hours(no need to refrigerate).

After steeping time, press the button to allow to drain into the insulated container.

Release the valve at the top.

When the coffee is completely drained remove the top and replace with the lid.

Look at that rich brew!

The thermal container is perfect for storage or taking on the go.

Make sure your ice cubes are nice and fresh!

Your cold brew can be enjoyed black or with cream, milk or milk substitute. We prepared some simple syrup (equal parts sugar and hot water) for people that wanted to add some sweetness.
