Easy Iced Coffee: Grady’s Cold Brew Kit comes in a Pour & Store Pouch

Grady's Cold Brew
Sometimes when you make your own cold brew, finding a container to put it in can be annoying, but the folks over at Grady’s came up with a clever idea. They packaged Grady’s Cold Brew Kit into a Pour & Store Pouch, so steeping a fresh batch of Grady’s cold brew just got a whole lot easier.

“Figuring out a way to brew the Bean Bags in their packaging was always a big goal for us,” said Grady Laird, the founder of Grady’s Cold Brew. “We had some messy experiments early on using our tins. Those puppies aren’t exactly 100% water-tight. You don’t have to sop up too many fridges before you know it’s time to move on. So that’s why we came up with the Pour & Store Pouch. It was the last component missing to make a full “just add water” Cold Brew Kit that can pretty much go anywhere.”

You don’t need any other equipment. All you have to do is throw a Grady’s Cold Brew Bean Bag, which is filled with coffee, spices and chicory, into the pouch, and pour water in to fill it up. Then, you stick it in the refrigerator overnight, and when you wake up in the morning, you’ll have fresh cold brew ready to go! The pouch carries 12 whole cups and the coffee lasts for two weeks, so you can have an ample amount for yourself every morning for over a week, keep everyone happy and caffeinated at the office, or you can host a bunch of your friends over for brunch. Save yourself all that money you spend on cold brew — if you compare it to purchasing a cup of iced coffee at Starbucks every morning, you’ll save $80 a month —  at your local café and get something nice.

“The Kit is self-contained—you need no other equipment, just water, to brew the perfect cup of iced coffee,” says Laird. “You can take the Kit camping, on a picnic, on a boat, or just to share in your office kitchen—and it’s the perfect gift for coffee lovers.”

High Brew Coffee Review: Flavor for the Road
High Brew Coffee Van

Here's a little thought experiment for you that helps illustrate the power of suggestion. First, imagine you pour a glass of ice cold Coca-Cola and set it down on the kitchen counter. Next, you pour a mug of piping hot, fresh coffee and set that beside the soda. Then, the fire alarm goes off and you run screaming into the street, smashing your toe against the doorframe on the way out and stepping over an ill-placed bucket as you stumble down the stairs. I'll let you picture the remainder of the tragicomic tableau, just pretend it takes you at least an hour before you get back inside, the fire alarm turning out to have been a malfunction.

How would you describe that once-cold glass of soda? You'd probably now call it warm. And the previously hot coffee? You'd now say it was cold, right? But... they're the same temperature! Brain explode much, right? OK, not that much, but still. Soda, beer, and white wine taste better cold; coffee tastes better hot. That much, at least, we can agree on, right? Well... no, not anymore. Not after you've tried cold brew canned coffees from High Brew Coffee.

Make Iced Coffee In One Minute With the HyperChiller

It doesn’t matter if it’s winter or summer; some of us prefer iced coffee all year round. Unfortunately iced coffee can be more of a pain to make than regular coffee. If it’s cold brewed you have to wait hours for a cup, if it’s warm brewed, you still have to wait a long time for it to chill. If you add ice right after the coffee is brewed, it gets watered down. But now, thanks to a contraption called the HyperChiller, a cup of iced coffee can be yours in one minute — without any dilution.

First you must freeze the HyperChiller. Then, brew fresh coffee from a single serve brewer directly into the HyperChiller. Next, swirl it around every few seconds to allow the coffee to circulate around the HyperChiller. After one minute, the coffee’s temperature will have dropped by as much as 130 degrees. Now all you have to do is pour it over ice and there you have it, a fresh cup of ice cold coffee.
