It has been really hot lately…record-breaking hot.  We have had a lot of fun in the office over the past two weeks experimenting with a DIY Cold Brew Coffee Maker.  This Cold Brewer is made with a mason jar, Aeropress, and a water bottle.  Here is an image of the Cold Brewer and the instructions from our Prima Coffee Facebook page.
