How to make: Cold Drip Coffee.

Cold drip coffee is becoming more and more popular here in Adelaide, with boutique cold drip companies beginning to blossom.

As with other fads seen of recent years in The 'Laide such as sushi, dumplings, macaroons and burgers, cold drip coffee is about to explode on to every street corner. It's a bit on the expensive side to buy and hey, it's really easy to make. I think I was paying about $7 for a 200 ml bottle. DIYing that stuff, I ended up paying about $3 a litre. It's really a set and forget kind of deal, but beware. This packs a caffeinated punch. If you're anything like me, you'll be buzzing like a little bee.

Cold Drip Coffee
Time: 10 minutes making the coffee. Overnight to soak.

  • One cup of ground coffee beans.
  • Four cups of water.


Place the coffee and water into a clean bowl. Cover with a tea towel or lid. 
Leave to soak overnight.
The next day, place a coffee filter in a strainer. Pour the coffee and water mixture into the filter. This may take a little time. I often pour a little in and come back to it after doing some chores... or you know? Dancing.
Don't pour in the final coffee grounds. Discard the grounds and the filter. 
Alternatively, you can put the mix in a coffee plunger and press it the next day to filter the drink, as you would hot coffee. 
Pour the coffee mixture into a bottle that has a lid.

This should keep in your fridge for about a week. 

Enjoy your buzz. xx
