You CAN use it to make cold brew. Fill the infuser with grounds, pour in cold water, let it steep (in a fridge if you have space), and cold coffee happens. It's lovely!

Great idea; we've been experimenting with cold brew and it is very flavorful.

Yep, this is what I've been doing and it works fine. Just kind of a hassle hovering over it slowly putting water in.

I can buy one locally, they are just overpriced and since we never stay in one place for more than a half a year we try to avoid accumulating things. It's probably what I'll end up doing.

The other bad side of the equation is coffee is relatively expensive in Thailand. I found a reasonably priced brand of coffee from some hill tribe that is sold in the super market but the majority of coffee is at specialty import prices, it's not like Vietnam where they get the coffee thing thanks to the French. This is especially painful because at the beginning of this year we were living in Colombia where a package of really good coffee was $2 at the grocery store.

It's easily offset by all the amazing food around us for really cheap, but damn it's a challenge here for the those who need that cup in the morning.

OP, you can probably also buy a ceramic (or even plastic though I wouldn't really recommend that, or stainless steel - slightly better) cone that you can put a filter into and pour hot water over coffee grounds. Those are like $10. You just pour it directly into a cup and it tastes great. Or buy a french press for about $20. I wouldn't mess with that crazy thing. But that's just me.

Foreign countries - gotta love 'em. When in Spain and all that.

Melitta makes a great ceramic cone.

Looks like a tea pot to me.
Maybe microwave a cup of water and grounds for about 2 or 3 minutes then pour it into that pot through the screen. It could work.

I’ve never tried making coffee with a tea infuser. I suppose if it has enough volume it would work as well as a French press. My infusers that fit into to top of the tea pot don’t have much volume.

OP, maybe you can find a Vietnamese coffee maker over there. They're very cheap, small and unbreakable.

I live in a so called resort community and the local Walmart sells all prices of coffee makers.

$9 for a coffee maker. May be cheaper where you are.
