Aquach vs Coffee Gator Side-by-Side Comparison

Overall Verdict

The Aquach and Coffee Gator cold brew coffee makers are quite different in their design. Of the two brewers, the Aquach produces a stronger, better quality brew. This isn’t due to a difference in the brew ratio, but rather the filter material and design. 

The Coffee Gator uses a plastic and nylon filter whereas the Aquach has a stainless steel filter. Both brewers are made from glass. The Coffee Gator, however, has a jug-type design and thicker glass and it fits more easily in a refrigerator door than the Aquach.

The uniqueness of the Aquach is its stylish look sporting an insertable stainless steel neck, a filter with an easy-lift design, and a quality stopper. The Coffee Gator, on the other hand, features a twist-to-pour lid.
