Some of the readers that have been following my news stories already know that I am a coffee drinker, and that I must have 2 cups of French Vanilla flavored coffee first thing each morning when I get to work. This is the same for many of my co-workers, and can be the core of much contention, should my coffee make not have sufficient freshly brewed coffee at the expected time.
There is one specific co-worker who loves iced coffee, and this adds additional controversy since after everyone has had their share, there must be enough coffee left in the coffee maker for her to make her iced coffee. Unfortunately, there are many days when the coffee pot is bone way before lunchtime, and unfortunately, I get an earful of her complaints.
I decided to look for a solution specifically for her, and I found the DRIPO Cold Brew Portable Barista Iced Coffee Maker. This is a cold-drip coffee maker that uses its own cold drip method to brew iced coffee. It is a slow drip method that according to the manufacturer’s specifications, takes 1 ½ to 2 ½ hours to make the “perfect” cup of iced coffee. Apparently, other similar systems take a lot longer, which is one aspect that is supposed to make this coffee maker more appealing. It weighs only 1.2 pounds, and makes a 10 ounce cup of coffee in the self-contained cup. And of course, you can use your favorite brand of coffee.
If you would like to give the DRIPO Cold Brew Portable Barista Iced Coffee Maker a try, you can purchase one on Amazon for $23.99.
