Do you love Primula's Cold Brew On the Go, but often long for a little more (or a lot more!) cold brew to savor? Meet Primula's Cold Brew Glass Carafe System! Included in Primula's MyBev FlavorCore line-up, this cold brew carafe features two interchangeable accessory cores that can be easily used with other beverage systems in Primula's FlavorCore line. Use the Cold Brew Core to "brew" a tasty carafe of iced coffee and the Flavor Mixer to stir cream, syrup or to simply enhance flavor. Use those same accessories with Primula's Flavor It 3-in-1 Beverage System. After all, sharing is caring!
Features & Functionality of the Primula Cold Brew Glass Carafe System
Cold Brew Core: Features a stainless steel mesh insert to "brew" coffee grounds and a removable bottom to simplify cleaning.
Flavor Mixer: Stir in your favorite creamer, flavored syrup, or simply mix your black brew for an overall flavor enhancement.
Removable Top: Not only is the lid removable, but the complete top with spout as well! Remove all parts and load in your dishwasher for an easy clean-up.
Borosilicate Glass Carafe: This durable carafe is not only easy on the eyes, but also temperature shock proof and sure to withstand many cold brew cycles.
BPA Free: If you're careful with what you eat, why not be careful with what you drink? This beverage system is proudly BPA free!
MyBev FlavorCore System: Purchase a different MyBev product and easily use and interchange the accessory cores. May we suggest Primula's Flavor It 3-in-1 Beverage System?
Sans Acid - Cold brew is not completely devoid of acid, but it is 65% less acidic than the usual hot drip coffee. Be kind to your body and brew cold!
Brew Now and Save for Later - This handy system doubles as a cold brewer and storage carafe. Brew and store in the fridge for up to 14 days (per Primula's recommendation) for a cold caffeine jolt every morning.
Tips and Tricks
Primula's patent pending FlavorCore System allows all MyBev products to use and share the interchangeable cores. What exactly does that mean? I'm glad you asked! If you purchase the Cold Brew Glass Carafe System and Flavor It 3-in-1 Beverage System, you can interchange and use the Cold Brew Core and Flavor Mixer with the Flavor It's carafe and vice versa with the Flavor It's infusers and Chill Core in the Cold Brew carafe. The possibilities are endless!
Best Answer:I drink this coffee every day, so I am always thinking ahead. I also want to get the most out of my coffee without sacrificing taste. I fill the filter with a course grind, and let it sit for 24 hours (though you can let it sit for up to 72. Then I pour it into a liter size pitcher and put it in the fridge. With the same grounds I used before, I now fill the carafe back up with water and let this sit for 12 - 24 hours. I then add this to the pitcher and it's ready to use. I like more of a latte so I mix a 1/2 almond milk 1/2 concentrate and it make s a great coffee. This may be too strong for some and too weak for others. So, for me, it takes at least 36 hours before it's ready. But having a pitcher in the fridge means I'm never without concentrate. And the lower acid makes a ton of a difference.
I typically let it brew for about 18-24 hours. It depends on how much coffee you use and whether you want to make concentrate or shorten the brew cycle and have it drinkable out of the carafe without diluting it. I'd recommend 12-14 for drinkability right out of the carafe.
I measure my water and coffee into my carafe on the afternoon the day before I want it and place it in the fridge overnight. Best cold coffee ever! I add sweetened condensed milk to skin milk and ice and pour brewed coffee over. Cannot drink slowly....delicious!
Best Answer:If you let it steep for a long time it will probably end up somewhere in between the Toddy concentrate and regular coffee. Unlike Toddy, the Primula keeps the ground coffee contained in the filter basket which I suspect prevents it from brewing as strong a concentrate. The filter basket lets A LOT of sediment through and I found the finished coffee to be much too chalky for me, I have since stopped using this to make cold brew. The Primula is much better suited to make tea in my opinion. If you are like me and don't love Toddy's flimsy design but really like the smooth taste, I suggest trying Oxo's cold brew system. It is far more stable than Toddy and has the option to use disposable paper filter discs. I now use Toddy's recipe in the Oxo cold brew coffee maker. I have tried Toddy, nut milk bags, Primula, using a pour over to filter a cold brew slurry, and the Oxo. The Oxo works best in my opinion.
The variables I have found that determine the strength and whether it is concentrate or ready to drink are how much coffee you put in the mesh filter, the grind, and how long it steeps before removing the grounds. I have used several different cold brew methods and each one depends on these variables. I prefer this or the Coffee Sock to the Toddy simply because it is easier. It took me some time to find the right formula for my taste, and that calibration was necessary for each method. This carafe system makes it very easy to serve.
How long do you brew the coffee for, how many hours?

Best Answer:Experiment and brew it to taste. I do not make concentrate. I make cold brew so that it is ready to pour into a glass. Toddy and others make concentrate. You can make concentrate with the Primula system with more coffee and longer brewing times (24 hrs), but I typically brew 12-15 hours. You can experiment with a short hot bloom followed by cold water, but I prefer using room temperature or filtered tap or bottled water. Hope this helps.
12-24 hrs. I usually make the day before and let it brew for at least 12 hrs. However, you can experiment with it, too, to find out if you like the taste better with fewer or more hours. I love this system!
Iced coffee has never tasted better!Review by Lisa
What a great brew! So easy to cold brew my coffee and I love that the Primula makes enough to enjoy for three to four days, no more making coffee every morning! And the carafe fits perfectly in my fridge door. I'm a coffee snob and am fussy about finding a great coffee that doesn't have bitter after taste... the cold brew coffee has a wonderfully smooth taste. I may never go back to hot coffee! I have an espresso machine, a pod brewer, a percolator and a drip coffee maker. The Primula cold brewer even beats my favorite percolator brew! (Posted on 11/8/2014)
