Polar Perk works as a cold brew system you can use at home to brew rich, aromatic coffee without having to pay the price of cold coffees at a shop. Behind the idea of cold brewing is that the time required is longer, but the taste is better such that you get a deeper flavor, one less acidic and much richer. It is also claimed that you can enjoy a better aroma from your coffee.

How It Works
Fill your reusable infuser, which functions the same as a filter, with your coffee. Pour the filtered water into the carafe and then drop your infuser into the unit.
Put the Polar Perk in your refrigerator overnight for storage. In the morning, enjoy a cup of iced coffee at your leisure.
When you are done, just remove the infuser and rinse it, or put it in the dishwasher. .
How it's Different from Competitors
When you think of traditional methods of coffee brewing, you think of hot water. In this case though, the product capitalizes upon the cold brew process, a process which is decidedly different. Regular coffee brewing uses water to extract oils, caffeine, and sugar from the roasted coffee beans. The heat extracts these things quickly, which is how you can enjoy a cup of coffee almost instantly. Cold brewing uses cold water not hot, and requires between 12 and 24 hours of steeping time. Now, that said, beyond being a cold brewer, it is not any different than the other cold brewers on the market other than in cost.
- Cold Brew Cafe
Cold Brew Café is similar in its exterior aesthetics and what it produces. The cold brewing system produces richer coffee in three steps. You just fill it with water, add your coffee, and keep it in the fridge overnight. Purportedly, when you wake in the morning, the coffee you enjoy will be up to 65% less acidic with a full bodied taste. You can also create up to 20 cups per patch, leaving the unit in your fridge for up to three weeks. This makes it easier to prepare, without the long term time consumption that nightly preparation would require.
- Sur la Table Cold Brew
This alternative brewer lets you fill the brewing basket with your coffee of choice, add cold water, and then steep. It recommends letting it steep for 24 hours. With a narrow profile, the unit is designed to fit into most refrigerator doors, so it is not in the way during this time. What’s more, it has a built in spout so that you can pour it without dripping.
- Hario Cold
The Hario Cold Brewer is essentially the same insofar as you fill it with your favorite coffee, fill it with water, and then let it steep overnight. With the basket in the center, it too functions the same as a brew basket or filter.
- Strong Coffee
It is important to note that the longer steeping times for cold brewing means that the coffee you receive in the end is much stronger compared to hot coffee. As a result, this is another main reason to consider the use of cold brewing over hot brewing. This also means that the four cups generated in a single serving can be spread out or shared.
The company purports that you can save money and time by no longer waiting in line at a local coffee shop for cold coffee. What’s more, you do not have the pay coffee shop prices for cold coffees. Instead you can brew cold coffee in your home for a fraction of the cost.
The company also claims that you can make up to four cups without the bitter, oily, or acidic results that traditional coffee has after the same number. .
