Cold brew coffee has made leaps and bounds since the coffee world started getting excited about it in the 1960's. Bruer is a new kid on the block - two blokes who met up in Santa Cruz and realised they had a lot in common. Gabe Herz was a mechanical engineer and Andy Clark was an industrial design guru, and the two of them knew a bit about manufacturing. Bruer was born in 2013 and thanks to a successful Kickstarter campaign to develop some remarkable brewing equipment, they got things off the ground pretty quick smart. Their baby, the Bruer, is a slow drip cold brewing system. It's simple to operate, it looks fantastic, and the end product is a clean, sweet, smooth, and flavoursome cup of coffee. The best bit is, the entire process of making coffee is a pleasure in the Bruer, which fits in with their philosophy neatly: that making coffee is a pleasurable ritual and that every step of the process should be anticipated and enjoyed. The Bruer's sleek and minimalistic design consists of a glass carafe, a brewing tower, and a reservoir for cold water to sit and drip over freshly ground coffee. The user can set the drip rate via an adjustable valve. You can experiment with different drip rates for maximum flavour or maximum speed, anywhere from 3-12 hours in fact. So, once you have your perfect cup of cold brew coffee, how do you make it hot on a winter's day? Well, Bruer has some ideas about that. You can stick it in the microwave, with questionable results. You can put it on the stovetop, or better still, you can brew a strong coffee concentrate and then just add the right amount of boiling water. Brilliant! The team at Bruer are constantly experimenting with cold brew coffee and write some great stuff in their company blog. Once you've got your hands on a Bruer slow drip cold brew coffee maker you'll want all the very best tips and tricks on how to make the most of it.

The Cold Bruer utilises a clean and functional design, while maintaining the quality of the brewing process, and ultimately the end product. Cold brewed coffee has much less acidity and bitterness which makes it perfect for iced coffee drinks. Slow drip methodology eliminates the risk of over extraction, a common issue with full immersion cold brewing.
