Zojirushi EC-YGC120 Fresh Brew


The Zojirushi Fresh Brew Plus makes a super-hot pot of coffee, and can also make iced coffee, thanks to the removable ice basket that fits inside the glass carafe.

Whichever method you choose, the coffee brews with hot water — if you’re in the mood for a cold cup, just fill the basket with ice, slide it inside the carafe, and the ice will cool and dilute the java as it drips down.
