It's hard to think about ice coffee brewing in the middle of winter, but our article on iced coffee brewing methods was extremely popular last summer, so we're including one choice on our Holiday Gift List, and it is one of the most beautiful (and compact) ice brewers available today.
It is the Hario Pota bronze (or copper) ice slow drip coffee maker. It works like any of the ice tower brewers, but in a much more compact form: the top contains the globe for your ice to slowly melt in; the middle portion contains the drip controller (for drips as slow as 1 every 5 seconds!) and the filter and ground coffee container. The bottom is the collection jar where the ice brew coffee ends up. The appliance is finished off with a nice bronze (or copper) base, and a matching cap.
