This Contraption Makes Cold Brew Coffee, Not Frankenstein’s Monster

A quick glance at this unique device over at Hammacher Schlemmer, and you most certainly wouldn’t think this is a coffee maker. It looks more like something you would use to infuse embalming fluid into Frankenstein’s monster. But it is, in fact a Japanese slow-drip coffee maker. It’s made of fancy wood and brass with a glass sphere and cylinders to hold your brew.

You put 100 ounces of ice water in the glass sphere up top and the spigots over the glass cylinders allow you to adjust the strength of the brew by controlling how slowly the water drips out. Coffee grounds are placed in the top of each cylinder with a filter as the cold water passes through Chinese water torture style.

The drip speed can be controlled from eight to 16-hours, which is a long time to wait for coffee if you need it in the morning. Word is that the cold brew concoction can be stored in the fridge for up to a week to maintain the rich and bitterness-free flavor cold brew coffee is known for. This thing stands 41″ (h) x 11 3/4″ (w) x 11 3/4″ (d), and weighs in at 20.5 pounds, and will set you back the princely sum of $1,950.
