As summer is upon us, the craving for refreshing, ice-cold cold brew coffee returns. Clive Coffee has been busy over the winter months perfecting the glass parts for our new cold brew tower.
The locally hand-crafted curved wood tower is simple and elegant, yet sturdy and solid. Available in walnut and quilted maple, the immaculate finish of the wood underscores the quality of this artisan product.
The hand-blown borosilicate glass pieces are high quality, functional and designed to fit the wood tower perfectly. The brass components bring out a vintage feel, while the 40oz receptacle at the bottom has been inspired by a classic whiskey bottle. When not in use the Clive Cold Brew Tower is simply a beautiful thing to gaze at. On the other hand, during brewing it is mesmerizing to watch.
To brew, simply grind 100g of coffee (a little finer than drip grind). Place in the center suspended glass piece, on top of the reusable ceramic filter. For a more even extraction, wet a paper Aeropress filter and place on top of the coffee. Fill the top compartment with ice and water and set to drip at a rate of 1 drop per second.
The rate of flow may change over the course of the brew so it is a good idea to check on it periodically. After six wonderfully chilled out hours, your brew will be ready. Enjoy over ice, or dilute with sparkling water or your milk of choice.
