County Line Kitchen vs Willow & Everett Side-by-Side Comparison

Overall Verdict

If you’re looking for a mason jar cold brew coffee maker, County Line Kitchen and Willow & Everett are the two choices. County Line Kitchen, however, is by far the better design as it is more true to the robust and durable image of the mason jar.

The unique spigot design on the barrel-shaped Willow & Everett is unfortunately prone to break if handled roughly. The lid also has a slightly rough fit. County Line Kitchen, however, has a plastic lid with an excellent gasket and two practical designs that are available with and without a handle. You can also purchase a normal aluminum lid.

Both brewers use a 1:9 brew ratio, but Willow & Everett produces a much stronger brew while County Line Kitchen tends to brew more for sweeter profiles. The largest County Line Kitchen brewer, the 2-quart, is more of a match for the half gallon (2.4 quart) Willow & Everett.
