Open Thread: Crofton Cold Brew Coffee System

This post is an open thread and contains affiliate links

Aldi is a great place to get your coffee fix. The grocer sells various coffees and creamers, and they also rotate different types of coffee makers and other gadgets that make caffeinated beverages onto their shelves. Over the years, Aldi has sold a single serve coffee maker, a 12-cup programmable coffee maker, and even an espresso maker. Aldi also sometimes sells coffee accessories such as a milk frother.

Aldi has been known to sell cold brew coffee makers at different times as well. Aldi sold an electric Ambiano Cold Brew Coffee Maker for $39.99 in 2019. We’ve also seen a less expensive non-electric Crofton Cold Brew Coffee System several times. That less pricey cold brew coffee system has returned to Aldi again, and we’re taking a look at it here.

Cold brew coffee — as the name suggests — is coffee that has been brewed with cold or room-temperature water rather than hot water. It has a longer steeping time of approximately 12-24 hours, so patience is important. Cold brew coffee has a flavor that is smooth, rich, and heavy, with low acidity. Cold brew is different from iced coffee, which is simply coffee made hot and then cooled and poured over ice.

What We Know:

Crofton Cold Brew Coffee System

The Crofton Cold Brew Coffee System in Navy, with a glass pitcher and a stainless steel filter.

The Crofton Cold Brew Coffee System (Product Code: 700718) cost $12.99 at the time of publication. That’s less than most other cold brew coffee systems on Amazon.

This is an Aldi Find, so it’s only in stores for a short time. Aldi does not offer online ordering for products that aren’t in stock at your local store.

Aldi occasionally brings this cold brew coffee system back to stores, so if you miss out on buying it this time around, you might be able to find it at Aldi again in a year or so. The discount grocer sold the system in May of 2020 and in July of 2021 for the same price of $12.99. We’ve seen many non-food Aldi Finds go up in price this year compared to previous years, and this cold brew system is one of those rare exceptions that hasn’t seen a price hike in 2022.

Here’s more information about the 2022 cold brew coffee system, according to Aldi:

  • Available in Cool Gray, Light Blue, Purple, or Navy
  • Features an easy pour spout
  • Includes a wide, easy-to-clean opening
  • Has a silicone grip
  • Includes BPA free pitcher
  • Makes 4 servings of coffee
  • Comes with glass pitcher with stainless steel filter

It does not appear to come with any kind of warranty.

  1. Be careful holding it. It shattered in my hand. I use a 2 quart mason jar now instead.

  2. I got one of the earlier ones to try and wished I’d gotten an extra to gift. Love it for summer. I also use my keurig for iced coffee but it uses a lot of ice and this is stronger and keeps fine in my fridge door. The glass is not thin so I’m surprised it shattered.
