Dripo: The Japanese Style Cold Brew Coffee MakerOctober 30, 2016
When you get the call to play with a new coffee maker, especially as a new mum, you say yes. ALL THE YES.
You've heard of diets that warn against empty calories? Well as far as I'm concerned, any calorie that doesn't contain caffeine is an empty one.
I used to be a 10 hours of sleep a night kind of girl, Add two babies into the mix and that's down to about 3 or 4 hours on a good night! It's astonishing how I've adapted to getting less sleep (I say astonishing, my family might say otherwise...), I attribute a lot of my seemingly spritely demeanor to coffee. Lots and lots of coffee.
Dripo by gosh! is a new Japanese style cold brew coffee maker. It's neater and quicker than your usual overnight fridge brewing method, plus for those on the go, the brewer-to-takeaway-cup design is great for a convenient and mess free quick cuppa.
Promising fresh cold brew in two hours, I load up my Dripo once the kiddos have dropped off for a snooze after they morning feed, and have an icy cup of coffee ready for our morning stroll about the neighbourhood a couple of hours later.
Being asked to test a cold brew coffee maker as the season turns from summer to fall (with just a hint of winter in the air) might seem a bit crazy... if I didn't live in Rhode Island. One of the things I learnt during my first winter here a few years back, was that the winter doesn't stop a true Rhode Islander when it comes to iced coffee!
Yes I love my hot coffee, but when I'm dashing about with the kiddos and bundled up for a mummy tummy busting walk around the neighborhood with nearly 50lbs of babies, stroller and diaper bag, I need something to cool me off... and did I mentioned my attitude towards CAFFEINE?!
Unscrew the lid and reservoir from the collection tumbler, lift out the filter basket, and screw the lid back on the collection tumbler which becomes your to go cup.
I like to fill mine up with extra ice to keep it really cold, but I'm also partial to a splash of almond milk which gives a lovely nutty taste without the added sugar from a flavoured syrup.
