The County Line Kitchen and Coffee Gator are two handy cold brew coffee makers that can fit in your refrigerator door bin. While the Country Line Kitchen makes a slightly stronger with better quality brew, there are major design differences.

Both are glass; the County Line sports a mason jar design while the Coffee Gator has a jug-type design. With its screw-on lid, the County Line can lay on a shelf but the Coffee Gator, with its twist-to-pour lid, must stand up. 

The other key difference is the filter. The County Line has a stainless steel mesh filter. But the Coffee Gator’s is plastic. With the County Line, you can choose from two different lid designs, and the Coffee Gator has two nice extras — a stainless steel measuring spoon and a silicone funnel for pouring in grounds and water.
