I don't like the heat

Wanting to buy a cold drip coffee brewer for a while but not being able to justify the $100's I decided to have a go at it myself.

It can't be that hard, the massive one at The Maling Room looked pretty simple.
Cold water slowly dripping onto ground coffee, taking several hours to complete the extraction.

50 grams, a 500mL water bottle with a slit cut into the lid and at the other end for a breather hole, the bottom chamber of an aeropress and a couple of paper filters - 5 hours later the glass was full.

Tasted good, needs some fine tuning but i'm happy with the outcome, picked up some El Sal Siberia at Sensory Lab today and i'll compare the cold drip and pourover tasting notes.

  1. Wait until the full pot has brewed before pouring your cup. In other words, avoid the Pause and Serve feature on your machine. Some machines have a 1-4 cups button for when you only want to brew a few cups instead of a whole pot. This will cause the machine to wait until the water is the correct temperature before starting the brew cycle.Coffee Equipment
