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

Over the past few years, Hario has become known as the coffee industry leader in pour over brewing equipment. Hario has helped bring about a coffee renaissance in the U.S. by creating ingeniously designed coffee brewing and grinding products that are being used by cafes and home coffee connoisseurs alike for by-the-cup coffee brewing. The design and methods behind Hario's brewing devices have helped to insure that specialty coffee is being brewed with the craft that it deserves.

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 Japanese for "cold brewing" It works perfect. It's a Great Cold Brew tool for a humble barista to use in his/her home. I have tried a few different grinds: coarse and table salt and also a combination of the two. The filter works perfect for the more coarse grinds, anythings less and sediment will find its way thru and you will end up having to pour it thru another filter when its done. I am not sure of the material that the filter is made up of, but after using it once I could not get the coffee stains off of it. I did not want to scrub too hard and end up damaging the filter. Maybe it's the glass that Hario uses, but it seems to be the coldest thing to the touch in my fridge. Going to order a few more to give as gifts!

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 Excellent My girlfriend bought this for my birthday (she understands my love for iced-coffee). The product is very affordable, easy to clean, VERY easy to use, and it brews great iced coffee.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple and Delicious Cold Brew This cold brewer is great! It is very simple to use and makes a delicious batch of cold-brewed coffee. I use a Totty brewer and an "Iced Coffee" brewer as well. The Hario Mizudashi is probably the easiest to use out of all 3. The Totty is probably still may favorite as far as taste goes, but I really enjoy the taste of the Hario, and I actually enjoy the differences between all of the different brewing methods. I would definitely recommend the Hario to anyone who enjoys cold-brewed coffee!

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 5 out of 5 by from Iced coffee I recommend grinding the coffee at a setting between Drip grind and French Press, if you can: coarser rather than fine. I fill to the top of the glass, then, adding water, stir gently to thoroughly wet the grinds. Let it sit in the refrigerator overnight. I chose a peaberry coffee. I think this method of preparation will result in a low acid cup of coffee, with any coffee you may select.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good option for bringing coffee to work I bought this two weeks ago. I have made two batches so far and both have turned out great. I like the fact I don't have to spend much time preparing my coffee in the morning. My recipe is to use 1/2 cup of cold bre concentrate 1/4 cup of water or ice and 1/4 cup of milk. This produces a very refreshing and smooth drink that I enjoy very much. The fact that it is cold makes it great to bring to the office for an afternoon coffee.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best Iced Coffee Ever! My sister bought this for me as a gift a couple years ago, and I love it! I make my coffee the night before, and it's nice and cold brewed for me in the morning. Recently, I accidentally dropped it on the floor and it broke, so I immediately got online to buy a new one. For three or four days, I was back to my old way of making coffee, and it just didn't measure up! I was so excited when my Hario Cold Brew Coffee Pot arrived!

Is the carafe glass or plastic?

Asked by: bradp
Thanks! -- I realize this is subjective, but how durable is the glass? I live overseas, will be home this summer briefly and am thinking about purchasing one to bring back. It needs to be able to travel well.

So you have to make the full pot?

Asked by: Dimarie
I can't really answer that question, because I always make a full pot. It keeps well in the refrigerator. I drink it up. If I made less that a full pot, I suppose I would have to find the right balance of coffee to water, that suits me.

I'm hearing conflicting reports on the caffeine content that this contraption produces. Some say it's more concentrated, others say it's the same, and still others say it's less than traditional "hot" brews. What's the answer?

Asked by: shawn99
This is not a question we can answer with 100% certainty, but because caffeine is one of the lightest and most quickly dissolved chemical compounds in coffee, it's likely that cold brew has the same caffeine content, assuming the coffee isn't brewed with a higher strength. It's common to see cold brew brewed with less water to compensate for the dilution of ice post-brew. If that's the case, the concentrated brew would have more caffeine content.

Does the lid have an airtight seal to keep the coffee fresh when storing in the refrigerator after brewing? And for ho long can you store it?

Asked by: DB88
The lid is not airtight. Cold brewed coffee is best within about 48 hours.
Answered by: Rfelb
Date published: 2015-06-12

Once the coffee is brewed, how long does it remain fresh? Also, can the bottle be closed without the filter in it, so you can make enough for a few days and keep it refrigerated?

Asked by: RK27
Cold brewed coffee is best consumed within 48 hours of completion. The unit does include a non-air-tight lid that can be applied with the filter removed.
