W+G readers can get 25% off a Takeya cold brew machine

I I wish I could be one of those lucky humans who can start their day with, say, a refreshing kale smoothie or a glass of lemon water. But I’m not – my brain and body (and, TMI, my intestines) crave a cup of coffee in the morning, and if I don’t get it in my blood within 30 minutes of waking up , I turn into a grumpy, caffeine-free goblin.

If it wasn’t for my faithful Takeya cold brew machine ($28), I would be a perpetually irritable, very broke zombie. But rather than spending $5 a day on vanilla whatchamacallits from Starbucks, this handy cold brew pitcher literally saved me hundreds of dollars on the stuff, all while keeping me in a happy frame of mind. and caffeinated. And now you too can experience the magic of this handy cold brew maker, and you can get it 25% off the regular price. Lucky you!

Despite my unfailing habit of coffee, I am far from being a barista at home. I don’t have fancy steamers or homemade espresso machines — it’s just me, my Mr. Coffee ($33), and Takeya pitcher. The easier it is for me to make a cup of coffee, the better.

That’s why this gadget will never leave my fridge. It’s the The easiest thing in the world to use, and makes a rich, aromatic iced coffee that tastes just like coffees, minus the exorbitant price. All you have to do is fill the mesh coffee filter with your favorite coffee grounds (mine is currently covered in caramel-y Stumptown Holler Mountain ($16), if you need some rec), twist it into the matching lid and fill it with water. Then you just need to dip the filter into the pitcher, screw on the cap and let it steep in the fridge for 12 hours. Next thing you know, you’ve got a batch of sweet, refreshing cold brew as good as the barista is down the street.

Although I’ve used other cold brew pitchers before, Takeya’s version is my go-to recommendation for coffee and tea drinkers. For one thing, it’s affordable – a 1 pint. the pitcher is just $28, while the larger 2-quart. is only $10 more. Second, it’s reliable. The cap screws on tightly, sealing your cold brew to never alter its integrity or allow any spills. It’s so well made that, if you’re short on space, you can even place it on its side with peace of mind that it won’t leak. And third, that soft, brown gold it produces every time. One sip of this stuff turns me from zombie to human, and that is priceless.
