Cold drip coffee is separating the cold water from the coffee grounds completely. In this brewer, about 60g is used to brew roughly 600ml total volume. Grind is a normal drip grind.
We advise using a paper filter disk on top of the ground coffee to help even the distribution of water over the grounds. A cloth filter device is at the bottom of the coffee area.
Steps to Brew Cold Drip Coffee
1. Fill up the upper chamber with as much ice as you can.
Remember, you can always stop the brew simply by adjusting the dripper mechanism.
2. Add some water to “kick start” the coffee brew.
Not much – we fill the top globe about 1/3 of the way at the start.
3. Adjust the dripper mechanism
Make sure it does about one coffee drip per second. A brew in this device takes about 4 hours.
4. The coffee’s been saturating for about 20 minutes by this point.
The brew is finally starting to come down the curly spout at the bottom.
5. Coffee elixir is now flowing
The very concentrated coffee elixir is now flowing, slowly into the carafe.
6. Add more ice cubes to the top vessel
3 hours in, and most of the ice is melted. Depending on the size of your cubes or how much has been brewed, you can add more ice cubes to the top vessel.
7. About one more hour to go
The brew is nearing the end, with about 400ml brewed up to this point. About one more hour to go.
8. See how diluted the final coffee drops are.
Near the end of the brew, you can see how diluted the final drops are.
