I wish I could be one of those lucky, 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, bowels) crave a cup of morning coffee, and if I don't get it in my bloodstream in the 30 minute window after I wake up, I turn into a grouchy, un-caffeinated goblin.

If it wasn't for my trusty Takeya Cold Brew Maker ($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 has literally saved me hundreds of dollars on the stuff—all while keeping me in a jolly, caffeinated state of mind. And now, you too can experience the magic that is this convenient cold brew maker—and you can get it 25 percent off the regular price. Lucky you!

Despite my unbreakable coffee habit, I'm nowhere near an at-home barista. I don't have any fancy steamers or artisan espresso machines—it's just me, my Mr. Coffee maker ($33) and my Takeya pitcher. The easier it is for me to make a cup of joe, the better.

Which is why this gadget will never leave my 'fridge. It's the easiest thing in the world to use, and makes rich, aromatic iced coffee that tastes just as good as the cafes, minus the blown out price tag. All you have to do fill the mesh coffee filter with your favorite coffee grounds (mine is currently topped with the caramel-y Stumptown Holler Mountain ($16), if you need some recs), twist it into the matching lid, and fill with water. Then, you just dunk the filter into the pitcher, screw on the cap, and let it brew in the 'fridge for 12 hours—the next thing you know, you've got a batch of smooth, refreshing cold brew as good as the barista's down the street.

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

Through June 30, Takeya is offering Well+Good readers an exclusive 25 percent off its line of pitchers, so you can make barista-worthy brew, too. All versions of the Takeya Cold Brew Maker are eligible for the discount, including all three colorways of the 1- qt. (black, white, and gray), and both the black and white 2-qt.

Pro tip: Go with the 2-qt version. The discount brings it down to just $28 and it doubles your batch, saving you time refilling it throughout the week. For less than $30, it's a no-brainer. Visit the Takeya website and use the code "WELLGOODBREW" at check out to redeem your offer.
