The Takeya didn't leak at all, but the grounds settled in the top of the lid and fell out when I tried to clean the brewer, which made a bit of a mess. I also noted how easy each brewer was to clean after use and whether there was any discoloration in the filters, pitchers, or carafes.

Helfen said, "Most folks grind coarser for cold brew because of the long brew time and because filtering the liquid out of the grounds doesn't take as long.The iced coffee machine also features a built-in milk frother, allowing you to make creamy, frothy milk for your lattes. Part of what makes brewing coffee at home so rewarding is that you can make it exactly how you want, so I wanted to see how each coffee maker handled customization.

That’s why an electric cold brewer can whip up good cold brew in just a few minutes, whereas a manual brewer requires that you steep for at least 8 hours.
