There are plenty of ways to get your caffeine fix, whether that’s with a piping hot cup of cappuccino or a refreshingly sweet cold brew.
The latter can require a completely different filtration process than an electric coffee machine or pouring a hot coffee over ice.
The two main processes for perfecting a cup of cold brew are infusion, in which coffee grounds and cold water are mixed through a filter, or via cold drip, which involves pouring water over coffee grounds.
We’ve handpicked our favourite cold brew coffee makers, so whichever method you prefer, there’s a machine for you.
All on our list are non-electrical, easy to use and even easier to clean, with the majority costing less than £40.
