Dripo!


Cold brew coffee is in.  Starbucks has it.  I love it.  I buy cold brew coffee when it's -12 outside.  Actually, it hasn't been -12 yet this year.  Give it time.  The problem is that, with any specialty coffee, buying it every day gets EXPENSIVE.  This gives you a way to have your cold brew at home!  The amazon page for this product provides a great video on how this works (Amazon link is here).  

I love the idea behind this...and that the lid can go straight on the tumbler on the bottom! I've tried this one time and the result was pretty weak.  As in, the coffee was weak..you could definitely see through it which means it's not fit to drink.  The system works though.  I'm currently brewing a second "batch" and it's coming through much darker but I used more coffee than the instructions called for so keep that in mind.  

Clean up is a little bit difficult.  There's no throwing away a tiny Keurig cup or picking up a filter that has all the grounds in it.  You have to clean this out..which is difficult if you don't want a bunch of coffee grounds down your drain.

Overall, with a little bit of trial and error, I like this product and can say I recommend it, just remember to use more coffee than it tells you that you need!

**I did receive this product for free in exchange for my honest, unbiased review.
