Happy Humpday, everybody! We’re that much closer to the weekend. Though when the weather is bangin’ like it’s been here in Portland, Ore.—which is to say, high 70s, beautiful sunshine, refreshing breezes—every day feels like a holiday.
If there’s one thing we like to do here at Barista Magazine during the summertime, it’s drink cold-brewed coffee. There are so many different ways to brew cold coffee, too—we always love hearing what methods people prefer. For example, when I visited Cro Cafe in Oakland, California, recently, the barista was using a cold brew drip tower.
Ken and I most often use a Toddy at home, and we enjoy the thick, rich flavors from it as we do coffee from a French press. But the cold drip method results in an incredibly clean cup, which many people prefer.
This is why it’s SO AWESOME that our friends at Espresso Parts have graciously offered up the stunning Yama Hunter Cold Brewer for this week’s Humpday Giveaway prize. This gorgeous device retails for $102.40, but for one of you lucky readers who plays our Humpday contest, it will be yours for no cost at all.
Made in Taiwan of the finest quality heat resistant Yama glass, the Yama Hunter Cold Brewer has a 24 oz capacity, with a reusable ceramic filter, and a wood cover that can be used as a holder for the top when brewing is completed. Also, the brewer is super easy to clean.
