In our recent examination of iced coffee, we discovered that making cold brew coffee is a cumbersome process. Even though it's grown in popularity, the time and effort involved tend to encourage people to just buy it at coffee shops—or now, even at Starbucks. But a new compact brewing system plans to make it easy to make cold brew yourself.
The BOD system, which is about to hit the coffee market, uses an integrated approach to completely contain the cold brew process in a single vessel. That makes the whole thing more compact than a brewer like a Toddy, which, while one of the world's most popular ways to make cold brew, is a bit bulky. The BOD also has a sleeker look than most cold brewers, so you feel good about leaving it out on the counter.
It's also specifically designed to make your cold brew portable. It comes with two easy-to-fill flasks—one of which is even tailored to met TSA specifications, so you can bring it to the airport and avoid the scourge of airplane coffee.
The BOD is now available for pre-order. It will regularly cost $79, but early buyers get a $20 discount.
