COLD DRIP Brew Ratio: 1:15 | coffee:water | e.g. 20g coffee will use 300ml of water.

Place the cold drip's mesh filter in the bottom of the central chamber of your cold drip tower. Place the desired amount of freshly ground coffee in to the central chamber. Place a wet paper filter on top of the coffee grounds.  Fill the top chamber with the desired amount of filtered cold water. Place the bottom chamber in place to catch the dripping. Turn the little tap so that it is dripping 1 drip per second. For a richer cup play with your drip rate, try 1 drip every 3 seconds. Check the flow periodically to ensure that the drip rate remains consistent until brewing is complete.

 

For Aeropress, Pour Over, and other Coffee preparations, please consult the apparatus manufacturers recommendations. We have baseline grind settings if your order pre-ground coffee, but for best results, grind fresh every time and experiment with your recipes to make it how you like it.
