SLOW DRIP FOR ULTIMATE FLAVOR EXTRACTION
Of all the ways to prepare iced coffee, this method is certainly the most beautiful. The slow drip of ice water is dispersed by an absorbent paper filter to wet all the coffee grounds evenly and ensure full flavor extraction. The water makes its way through the grinds and exits at the bottom of the chamber through a permanent ceramic filter, then slowly spills through a spiral of glass tubing to finally drip into the carafe at the bottom.
ADJUSTABLE DRIP RATE FOR EXTRACTION CONTROL
You control the extraction time via an adjustable brass petcock that allows you to adjust the drip rate to your liking. Longer extraction times (15-20 drips per minute) result in syrupy, rich coffee concentrate in six to eight hours. Shorter extraction times (35-45 drips per minute) deliver double-strength coffee that’s ideal for serving as is over ice in about three hours.
