As iced-drip style coffee becomes increasingly popular, the lack of inexpensive home-brewing equipment still keeps this a mostly barista experience. To counter this problem, the Dripo Cold Brew Portable Barista Iced Coffee Maker ($30) was created.
The Dripo is an all-in-one system in which the components of ice/water reservoir, the brewing chamber holding the coffee grounds, and the collection tumbler all fasten together in a foot long cylinder that is entirely mobile so you can start your iced drip coffee going and take it with you to enjoy when it’s done.
Most industrial sized iced drip coffee machines require from 12 to 24 hours to complete their process. The Dripo can have your cup of ice-brewed joe ready in about two hours. Because it’s made of 100% BPA free plastics, the Dripo weighs only 1.2 pounds and can make 10 ounces of coffee at a time. It’s easy to clean and, as an added feature of the Dripo’s mobility, the tumbler also has a spill-proof lid, perfect for added safety when you stumble into the office on Monday morning.
