The Goodful is a large plastic brewer that can yield up to 67 fl.oz. or 2 liters of cold brewed coffee. It can stand in the door of a large refrigerator, but may be too wide for some smaller ones. The Willow & Everett, on the other hand, comes in a half and one gallon size and can produce up to 100 fl.oz. (3 L) of cold brew coffee.

Once the filter is removed, the Goodful can be laid on its side for storage, whereas the Willow & Everett needs to stand on a shelf. If you’re looking to brew a large quantity in a brewer that’s set inside the door of your refrigerator, Goodful is not a bad choice. However, the similar Takeya is an all round better proposition in both design and brew quality.

Compared to the Willow & Everett and Takeya’s brew ratio of 1:9, the Goodful is only 1:18. This means you get a much stronger brew from the Willow & Everett. However, the Willow & Everett does have design and quality issues. This includes the poor quality of the lid, the fragility of the glass around the tap or spigot, and the poor workmanship of the filter.
