Product Description

The Hario Cold Brew Pot and the Mini Pot coffee makers are so sleekly modern you might glimpse one in a futuristic sci-fi flick set in Tokyo in 2020. Hario's Cold Brew Coffee Pots are designed with classic engineering details to ensure that maximum flavor is extruded from every grain of coffee placed in their suspended filters. Unlike other presses, the Hario takes cold or room temperature water and yeilds cold brewed coffee in 12-24 hours. It is the perfect quality and flavor for iced coffee drinks. The Mini Pot brews 1-2 cups of coffee. The larger size brews 2-4 cups of coffee. Learn more about the Hario Cold Brew Coffee Pot:

Do you let the brew sit at room temperature 12-24 hours or in the fridge while brewing?
Weiss on Jul 30, 2014
Best Answer: I let mine sit in the fridge for 24 hrs. I don't have to worry about it going bad, getting knocked over, etc. I use this to make iced coffee exclusively, so for me, it's also perfect b/c it's cold and perfectly concentrated the next day. You can leave it sitting at room temperature, but if you do, you don't need to let it brew as long (I do 8-10 hrs).

I was wondering if anyone could help me out, Im a rookie to the Hario game and I was wondering the best coffee for this pot. I just started to drink coffee and I was hooked. Should I buy the beans and a grinder or what? I would appreciate all the help.
A shopper on Jul 21, 2013
Best Answer: In my opinion the "best coffee" for this pot will be a combination of 1) grind and 2) beans/roast
I believe the key to getting full flavor extraction with the Hario is to use coarsely ground coffee. I usually buy my beans and grind it at wholefoods. simply set their machine to the "coarse" grind. First batch I made with coffee ground for drip machine did not extract nearly enough flavor. Otherwise, the only other tip I'd give is to stir the grounds once you add water to the Hario.

in terms of flavors:
I found that using espresso roast from Wholefoods (coarse grind) produces a nice smooth cold brew coffee with chocolate notes.
The Colombian beans I typically like for making a smooth, low acid hot coffee produce a bright (not quite acidic) tasting cold brew coffee.
Ethiopian beans produced a cold brew with a nice earthiness to it.
I've only had the machine for a couple weeks. I'll continue to experiment with beans and brew time on each new batch I make.

For those of you with the large (1000 ml) size: what are some ways to make the coffee stronger? It's coming out too weak for my taste.

Here's my current method:

- Medium-coarse grind (somewhere between press and drip)
- Dump all the coffee in at once, filling the filter to top of the mesh part (rather than measuring 80g or whatever)
- Pouring water through the filter a little at a time, stirring a bit with each pour using a chopstick
-Refrigerating and allowing to brew for approx. 12 hours

Pippy P on Jun 26, 2013
Best Answer: You will enjoy the larger pot because it makes more coffee. I don’t think if makes any difference as to pot size.
You should try my method. I roamed the net, found someone's method, modified it a bit, and that's what I use.

Caution. This is a glass coffee pot. Do not bump. Do not subject to direct flame or heat. Do not subject to extreme temperatures. Do use metal utensils with this pot. Do not use if pot becomes cracked or damaged. Do not poke or puncture the filter or filter assembly. Hand wash only. Use only soft sponges and cool soapy water. Use mild liquid detergent only. Use no abrasive materials nor scrub pads. NOT dishwasher safe. Hand wash the pot and all components in cool soapy water. Rinse well and allow to air dry.
Making your coffee: Use coarse or "French Press" ground coffee in your Hario Cold Brew system. The grind you want is usually the coarsest on commercial grinder in the store.
1. Fill your Hario glass pot to the 800 ml line with quality cool water. At least use a Pur or Brita filter to remove total dissolved solids.
2. Fill the filter assembly with ground coffee just until the filter mesh is totally covered.
3. Place the filter assembly into the glass pot.
4. Pour additional water through the grounds until the glass pot is completely full and grounds are wet. I spend some time gently stirring the coffee with a chopstick to insure all the grounds get wet.
6. Keep Hario on kitchen counter for up to 12 hours and loosely put a piece of plastic wrap over the top. If you'd like a stronger steep, place the pot in the fridge and allow to chill for up to 24 hours, but I’ve never need to do this. I go 12 hours on the counter. No more than 75 degrees F, though.
7. Remove the filter, put in a resealable glass jar, and keep it in the fridge. The Hario top is not airtight and you don’t want onions or whatever to flavor your brew. Your cold brew will store in the fridge for up to a week or two.

If one would wish their coffee from this pot to be hot, how would you recommend warming the coffee? By adding hot water, by using a warming plate or microwave?
Steven C on Mar 20, 2013
Best Answer: Hi Steven,
I keep the concentrate in the refrigerator, so it's pretty cold at the get-go. I usually add water from the tap and then microwave the entire thing for about 1:50. Depending on how dark the concentrate is, I'll do 1/3 - 1/2 concentrate and the rest water. If you add just hot water, you'd want to make sure it's pretty hot to get the temperature of the concentrate up before drinking.

If you're drinking the concentrate alone, I'd say you could microwave or or put on a hotplate to bring it up to your preferred temperature.

Hope that helps!

I am thinking that the larger brewer would better suit my coffee needs but did read in one of the reviews that the larger container yields weaker coffee as the filter is the same size on both models. Any experienced advice?
beth g on May 20, 2013
Best Answer: Depends on how much coffee you put in the filter section. Found set of instructions from Hario for smaller unit that calls for 50 grams, the larger one calls for 80 g. I simply fill it to top of the screened section for the large pot..

Two issues yet to fully resolve. Whether all the water should go through the filter, takes time, or fill the filter once and then add water to the pot. Theoretically it seems the first method, all water through the filter, should be a better choice, but takes patience.

Secondly i have seen comments to use the french press grind and another to use medium fine, usually the pre-ground stuff. Tried both, but no conclusions. So far the only difference seems to be a little bit of sediment on bottom of thepot. I use the pre-gound when I can't find whole beans that I like. (Common, given where I live.)

One final comment. Having tried the french press and the mason jar techniques, the Hario is such a blessing to clean. Worth every penny.

I'm concerned about the nylon filter - does it leach toxins into the coffee like plastic does?
And where is the glass made? If it's China it most likely has lead in it, so would prefer glass made in the
U.S. or Europe. Thanks!
Barbara B on Mar 12, 2014
Best Answer: It is true that some plastics leak toxins, but most do not break down until around 300 degrees. But not all researcher agree as to what level or if that level of toxicity is reached. However, paper filters for tea and coffee have been found to contain toxins and pesticides.
The glass is from China; however the glass is 'Borosilicate' glass is supposed to be toxin free.
Hope this helps.

Can you also brew tea in this brew pot?
A shopper on Jan 13, 2013
Best Answer: Hello,

I absolutely love this cold brew pot! However, I have only tried brewing coffee , not tea. I am sure it would work just as well with tea though. If you have half a day or 24 hrs to wait on your coffee/ tea then this cold brew pot is WELL worth your patience.

Easy to clean, doesn't take up space, inexpensive, doesn't leave your coffee with a bitter taste, comes out tasting smooth AND I rarely have that coffee aftertaste in my mouth.

I think the only negative comment I have would be that I am sure in a year or so I will need to replace the filter. Other than that I would say get it!!<3

Help this helps even though I haven't used my cold brew for tea.

Good Luck!!

How does this (Toddy Cold Brew System) differ from let's say a Hario Cold Brew pot? I already have the Hario, but was wondering if the end result is different. Does anyone have experience with both?
Bela K on Jun 9, 2015
Hario Cold Brew Pot
Hario Cold Brew Pot
Toddy Cold Brew System
Toddy Cold Brew System
Best Answer: It has a different filtration, and essentially you're also brewing a higher concentration.? The Hario has a filter that still allows small particles through, and will be a higher ratio of more water to grams of coffee.? The Toddy will be a different concentration that's thicker, but because of the filter, it's better at keeping out even the fine particles so it's cleaner too.

Exelent flavorReview by Antonio
This item makes really nice cold coffee, just do a really fine grinding with a good not acid coffee and enjoy, I dont like acid flavors in my coffee!. Only thing to say about this product is the quality of the plastics, they look cheap even they are not. Little details on how they were made. The filter is plastic and is really not that fragile but looks like fragile, I always take care of not pushing it too strong when I wash it. (Posted on 11/21/2014)
Great ProductReview by ShellyinLA
I wanted to buy the Hario Cold Brew Pot from an American company--so mission accomplished! I drink iced coffee exclusively, so the cold brew pot is perfect for me. I tend to like to leave the glass pot ("brewing") on the kitchen counter for at least 24 hours to get a strong brew. When shipping, it might be helpful to include instructions in English, but the diagrams are definitely helpful. :) (Posted on 9/17/2014)

Great Product and Price!Review by Steven
The pot is pretty much what you would expect and is simple to use. Cold Brew is delicious, and it's time for you to up your coffee game if you're still on that drip system. (Posted on 7/3/2014)
Good...Review by John
I have the 1000 ml size and overall am quite happy but I wish that there was a 1500 ml carafe. I am experimenting with just using enough coffee to fill the filter around 80% as opposed to up to the very top. I'm also trying 'fine' ground coffee to see if there is a noticeable difference.

I am considering a Bodum 'Bean Set' ice coffee maker that was reviewed by SCG in July '11 ( ). This has a 1.5 L capacity and the shape of the carafe may be a more convenient fit with my refrigerator. Bodum's US site does not have the 'Bean Set' but it can be found for $30. Not sure why Bodum lists this model as an 'ice' coffee maker when it appears to be similar in design to their other French presses. (Posted on 6/28/2014)

I really like this thing!Review by Maddox1349
Its super easy to use, just make sure you read the instructions here and not on your box because they are all in Japanese! I use an espresso roast with it and make Ice coffee. It comes out way better than almost any Dunkins or Starbucks Iced coffee. Definately worth the purchase and its cheaper here than Amazon! (Posted on 4/5/2013)
cold brew coffee with a chocolate simple syrup. Review by the
this system makes perfect daily coffee. it's that simple. you will taste distinct notes in your coffee that you missed brewing the same coffee a different way.

it becomes almost a zen practice in the morning which i look forward to. it was a constant experiment until I found my formula - Dark French Roast which I medium grind then add a chocolate simple syrup described below. absolutely yummy! My morning ritual was to go out for coffee every morning before work. now I can't stand the bland taste of barista prepared coffee. I love my own brew so much better.

fill the basket between 1/2 & 3/4. any more & you're wasting coffee as it produces a crust that will sit out of the water and not add to the process (unless you check it nightly & break up the crust which would be tedious). less and you'll make a weaker coffee & wonder what all the fuss was about.

pour water over the ground while stirring with a chopstick. you want the coffee to be a thick, saturated mud. if you don't do this, you'll notice a clump of thickened slag when you dump the basket. these grounds didn't add to your coffee and were wasted. fill to near the top. the grounds should be saturated mud for full effect as opposed to a damp crust. cover and stick in the frig for 12-24 hours to steep.

next morning pull the basket up & let it drain before dumping. a quick water spray upside down in the sink cleans it out.

now here's my trick - in a jigger add a teaspoon of Ghirardellis double chocolate powder. add a shot of milk. shake it up. then add a small squirt of agave or simple syrup ( honey clumps & changes the flavor of the coffee too much, sugar doesnt dilute fully) then shake that up. don't be lazy & add them all together since the powder will clump with the syrup & you'll wind up with chocolate spittle.

add this mixture to taste to your cold brew coffee. it is a chocolate simple syrup that dilutes completely into the cold coffee & makes it really delicious.

Be careful which sizeReview by cohoss
I got turned on to cold brew with the Toddy system which creates a great cold concentrate but uses a full pound of coffee and the filter clogs way too easy.

The Hario is a much simpler set up and is much sturdier compared to the Toddy. The filter basket is rinsable and reusable and make the process easy as pie.

A word of warning, however. I got the larger model Hario and wasn't getting good, dark concentrate (I like to mix with water to reheat to hot coffee). Although it's pretty dark, the brew doesn't come out as a concentrate and is almost too light for me to drink straight (I like a dark coffee).

I checked with the store and they confirmed the basket size is the same on both the 500 ml and the 1000 ml bottles, so if you like a heaver concentrate, you may want to try the smaller size first.

Overall this is a quality product at a good price. I just wish I would have known about the filter size before purchasing. (Posted on 1/24/2013)
Absolutely LOVE my Hario!Review by SoCalCoffeeGal
I am a hot beverage wimp, therefore my go-to coffee is iced coffee. I previously owned a Toddy. It was a nice introduction to iced coffee, but the filter would sometimes clog and cleanup was a bit messy. The Toddy also brews a large amount of coffee (even when I cut the proportions in half) leaving me with a pot left in the fridge for more days that was probably optimal. Enter the Hario. Oh my goodness!! This thing is a BREEZE!! I believe others have already mentioned it but what you want is 80 grams of course ground coffee in the filter and then you add 1125 milliliters of water. I use a trick similar to that of the Toddy. I add maybe 1/3 of the grounds to the filter and then pour water over it to thoroughly saturate. Then add another 1/3 or so of the grounds, then add more water. Then finally the remaining grounds and water. This ensures that the grounds get evenly saturated without any need to stir. I also have no trouble getting all the water to pour through the grounds (I do not lift the filter out and pour water into the container). This larger capacity Hario brews the perfect amount for me to use up in about 3 days and cleanup is a snap compared to the Toddy! I just take the filter and knock it inside a trash bag, give it a quick rinse in the sink and I'm good to go! I cannot recommend this product highly enough! (Posted on 12/28/2012)

wonderful way to make coffee with quality glass and filter, try making coffee this way: your best coffee will taste very different and better.

Wow - where has the pot been all my life?Review by Ben
This pot is a jewel and is ideal for anyone who suffers from the acid effects of "normal" coffee. It's easy to use and makes enough concentrated coffee to last about a week. There are no English instructions, but here is one version from a reader

Making your coffee:
Before starting: Use coarse or "French Press" ground coffee in your Hario Cold Brew system.
- Pro Tip: Use your favorite coffee. You'll be surprised at how much better it tastes!
1. Fill your Hario glass pot to the 800 ml line with quality cool water. Remember: coffee is 99% water. Using icky-tasting water will result in icky-tasting coffee.
2. Fill the filter assembly with ground coffee just until the filter mesh is totally covered. (directions say 80ml, but meh)
3. Place the filter assembly into the glass pot.
4. Pour additional water through the grounds until the glass pot is completely full and grounds are wet.
- Optional: give the grounds a stir with a plastic straw or chopstick. (I never bother)
5. Place the pot cover onto the pot. It will click into place.
6. Let the pot rest! You can keep it on your kitchen counter for up to 12 hours. If you'd like a stronger steep, place the pot in the fridge and allow to chill for up to 24 hours. (I go 12 hours on the counter. No more than 75 degrees F, though. So, hot nights, put it in the fridge)
7. Remove the filter and enjoy your coffee concentrate!

For hot coffee, I mix 1 part coffee concentrate to 1 part boiling water.
For iced coffee, I fill a glass with ice and mix in 2 parts coffee concentrate to 1 part milk. (Posted on 11/19/2012)
great!Review by gigpatty
I discouvered this on this website! what a difference! making hot espresso then adding ice cubes?? what was i thinking? this make a great coffee-i've had to try different blends-went back to my espresso blend...Easy!!! (Posted on 8/1/2012)
Couldn't be happier!Review by Eron
I have no more use for my French Press or Automatic Drip coffee maker. This is the best little gadget ever!

I didn't even measure the amount of coffee I put into the strainer: just poured in coarse-ground coffee until it completely filled in the mesh area. I put 800ml of fresh filtered water into the carafe, popped in the strainer with ground, then poured water over the grounds to top it off. Gave it a swirl and let it sit on the counter for 12 hours.

I'm normally a 1 sugar guy... 2 sugars if its sub-par coffee. I didn't need any sugar! I filled up a mug half way with coffee from the carafe and topped it off with hot water for a great eye-opener in the morning.

In the afternoon, I filled a glass with ice, added coffee about 3/4 of the way up and topped it off with whole milk. Fantastic!!

Cold brewing definitely brings out more of the subtle flavors present in your favorite coffee. I only wish I'd discovered this cold-brew system earlier!

Plus: Seattle Coffee Gear has this system cheaper than anywhere else I've seen. (Posted on 7/16/2012)

Great product. A friend recommended Hario and it does not disappoint. Just find the right blend(s), coffee ratio, and most importantly the right coarseness of the coffee grind.

i gave this as a gift to my sister who only likes coffee cold. i was thinking she would never listen to me and would stick to her old ways of pouring hot coffee over ice. i was WRONG! she not only uses it daily, but asked me for a second one so she can have two going at once. i have to admit on a hot summer day that cold brew is really refreshing! maybe we both learned something? thanks SCG! :-)

Hario Cold Brew - good stuffReview by Avalanched
Instructions where in Japanese (the icons led me thru most of it. Love the sleeping refrigerator) but I found English version online. Very easy to use. I suggest holding the bottom of the carafe as you poor as the handle seems a tad light for weight once filled. Depending on the coffee you use, you may have to run the brew through a filter before consumption. The taste of cold-brewed coffee is tremendous. Love it. Price was right as I'm not going to brew this everyday.

Great for easy iced coffeeReview by Chris
I love a good cup of iced coffee in the spring and summer. The Hario cold brew pot has taken over as my preferred method of brewing iced coffee. I used a Toddy Coffee Maker all last year with good results, but that was before I started roasting my own coffee. With the Toddy I was stuck brewing a pound of coffee at a time and drinking the same brew for 1-2 weeks. The Hario lets me brew less coffee so that I can switch between roasts more often.

The process I use could not be easier. I drop 80g of freshly ground coffee into the strainer, and then place the strainer in the pot. I pour cold water over the grounds slowly up to the top of the white filter (it should take approximately 1000ml or 33.8oz). I give the grounds a light stir and then place the brewer in the refrigerator. Hario's instructions say to extract for 8 hours, but I have done up to 12 and gotten good results. Once it's done brewing I pull out the strainer and discard the grounds. The cold brew coffee is good for 2-3 days, but I am lucky if it lasts a day in my house. I enjoy mine black or mixed with a little milk and Vanilla or Caramel Monin syrup.

Easy To Use, Easy To Clean, Great Taste
