The County Line Kitchen and Takeya are two cold brew coffee makers that focus on practical design more so than stylish looks. County Line Kitchen is a country-style mason jar cold brew coffee maker. It comes in a 1-quart and 2-quart size, both with a screw-on lid and a flip cap for easy pouring. You can also choose between a brewer with or without a handle.

The brew ratio of the County Line Kitchen and the Takeya are both a favorable 1:9 of grounds to water. Their brew quality is also basically the same. If you want to brew in quantity then the Takeya is the best choice. 

If you’re looking for a more versatile brewer, we recommend the County Line Kitchen. With a stainless steel mesh filter, it can also be used for hot beverage brewing. If you purchase the additional aluminum lid, you can use it much the same as any mason jar. Additionally, the 1-gallon brewer is excellent for summer favorites such as lemonade, or fruit teas.
