To the delight of the cold brew crowd, Hario steps in with the Mizudashi and offers a delightfully simple solution for the at-home aficionado. Enjoying chilled coffee is a cinch with this all-in-one device, which includes everything but the beans themselves. Simply load the fine mesh basket with ground coffee, add an appropriate dose of cool water, and store in the refrigerator for several hours. The filter is easily removed for cleaning and the vessel itself can be used for both storage and service. The Mizudashi was made to do what others, like the French press, were manipulated for: using cold water to brew sweet, syrupy coffee.


  • Made in Japan with Hario's famously tough glass and some plastic components
  • Available in two sizes: 600 ml and 1000 ml
  • Requires no extra parts or accessories
  • Height: 8 in (small), 11.5 in (large)
  • Recommended starting parameters for large Mizudashi: 80 g medium-ground coffee and 1000 ml cold water brewed for 18 hours in a refrigerator
  • Also suitable for preparing hot coffee or tea

Hario Mizudashi Cold Brew Coffee Pot is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 10.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Delicious Coffee, Simple Method. I am so thrilled with this cold brew system. It is so simple to use and the results are smooth and rich coffee, with minimal acidity. Like most cold brew systems, it does take a while to brew, but usually we just prepare the carafe the night before and enjoy the next morning. My one negative remark is the size/shape of the carafe. We did opt for the larger version (it is very tall and slender), but it is almost too tall to fit in our fridge. Luckily, there is one specific spot that it will fit--but that is it. Just something work considering before purchase. Overall, we love this brewer!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing. I found myself buying iced coffees from local coffee shops and spending so much money. I decided to try out cold-brew coffee and found this little gem. It was very easy to use. Simply add course ground coffee to the filter cup and add water. Set it in the fridge overnight and voila! Iced coffee will be waiting for you in the morning. I ordered the big size, and I was able to have enough for 2 days. You may find yourself going through coffee beans pretty quick, but you will realize how much coffee you are making. Overall, you will be saving a ton of $$$. Invest and you won't regret!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easiest brewer to recommend I used to make iced coffee in a Chemex using the "Japanese" method, but now I make it in a Japanese Mizudashi using the "lazy" method. Cold water, 120 g of coffee at slightly-coarser-than-Chemex grind, a stir stick (I use a chopstick), and 8-12 hours are all you need for surprisingly bright, sweet, and nuanced coffee. A++++ would buy again!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gotta love cold brew! I love cold brew coffee, but I always fumbled around trying to make it. Since I'm a student and don't have a very well stocked kitchen, I wasn't sure how exactly to go about making cold brew. Then I found this! LOVE IT!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Nice gear -- But instructions are in Japanese It's a very elegant design.  But the enclosed instructions are only in Japanese, so I can't make use of it -- How much coffee goes in?  How should it be ground?  How much water?  What temperature?  How long?  Without such guidance, could be a rather hopelessly long (and expensive) trial and error process.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Makes delicious coffee I am new to cold brewed coffee, but I am very happy with Hario Mizudashi Cold Brew Coffee Pot. The coffee is delicious. Don't think I'll be going back to hot brewing for a while!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not if you're American! I do not read Japanese, Vietnamese, Chinese, or any other Asian language, so the instruction sheet is useless.

What material is the filter made out of?

Asked by: andrue
The filter is made of a very fine steel metal mesh. The mesh is held together by a BPA free plastic frame.

Do you just put a cup of the cold brew in the microwave to make hot coffee? Is it a concentrate to be mixed with water?

Asked by: Hans
Hans, we definitely would not recommend heating cold coffee in a microwave. Cold brew can be concentrated then diluted later, or brewed with more water to begin with. It should, however, always remain cold.

Since a reviewer said the directions were in Japanese, could you provide instructions in English here? I'm concerned about buying the product and not understanding how to use it.
