The County Line Kitchen and Bodum are two different types of cold brew coffee makers. The County Line Kitchen is an immersion filter brewer with a fixed brew ration. The Bodum is a free-style French press brewer so you can adjust the brew ratio and brew quantity. 

The Bodum will give a full-strength cold brew concentrate. The County Line Kitchen produces a weaker brew but one that can still be diluted. Brewing with the Bodum takes a little more time and effort but its filter works the best.

The County Line Kitchen can fit into the door bin of a small refrigerator and lay on its side after the filter is removed. It’s also made of glass and stainless steel so is versatile enough for hot beverage brewing. The Bodum features an all-plastic design and must brew standing on a shelf.
