In terms of brew strength and quality, Cafe Du Chateau cold brew coffee maker slightly outperforms Aquach. This is because the Cafe Du Chateau has a more porous filter. However, apart from that, it is not a brewer we recommend. The device is bulky, is unsteady while pouring, and its stopper is not well-designed. 

Aquach, on the other hand, has quite an attractive design. The stainless steel insertable neck is a unique feature, as is the easy-to-lift filter. Aquach also doubles up as a hot beverage brewer and it pours really well. If you like the look of Aquach and appreciate its versatility as a stylish breakfast table carafe, it's not a bad choice.
