Con Easy to mess up while brewing
This cold brew coffee maker has no measurement markings, so it can be tricky to get the proportions right. If you use too much water and too little coffee, the brew will be too weak. If you have too much coffee and too little water, some of the coffee will get wasted because no water will reach it.
Con You have to use coarse coffee
Any coffee grounds that are not coarse enough will get through the filter and end up in the coffee concentrate, potentially ruining the batch.
