To make a cold brew coffee using this device, you will need:

  • A Mizudashi Coffee Pot
  • Your finest coffee mug
  • Your favourite Two Chimps Coffee (We find an Aeropress grind works best for cold brew coffee)
  • Cold Water (filtered if possible)

Firstly, weigh out 50g (or 7 heaped tablespoons) of ground coffee. Then, remove the lid from the device , remove the strainer and carefully pour the grounds into the strainer.

Next, set the strainer in the glass container. You will see there is a black dot on the top of the strainer. Twist this round so it is at the centre of the spout.

Slowly, pour the water into the strainer and keep adding it little by little until it reaches the middle point of the handle. While you’re adding your water, slowly stir it so the coffee grounds mix with the water. Keep going until the glass container is full.

When you’ve finished with this device, cleaning it is super easy too!

When you have removed the strainer from the glass container, twist the cap on the bottom of the strainer and the wet grounds will fall out.

Make sure you do this over a bin or your compost pile though as things could get messy!

TOP TIP: Add your used coffee grounds to your garden, they are good for roses and also keeping the slugs away!

To get the most out of this device, we would recommend a medium to light roast coffee such as Round Hole, Square Peg or Ready, Set, Bananas!. But of course, the choice is completely yours.
