Dripo is a true cold-drip coffee maker that is affordable and easy to use. Also known as Dutch or Japanese style coffee, it uses a unique cold drip method to brew a perfect cup of coffee that brings out the best flavors from your favorite beans. Slow-drip, cold-brew coffee is coffee like you've never tasted before, being more aromatic and have more delicate or nuanced flavors with a lighter body.
From the Manufacturer
See why experts prefer cold brew to pour-over, espresso, and French Press!! The Dripo’s proprietary slow-drip cold brew method brings you the latest innovation in coffee to create an old-world, bitter-free luxurious taste.
Dutch or Japanese style cold brew taste is taking the world by storm because this method releases the more delicate oils and flavor molecules while not exciting acids in the beans. End result? No bitterness. Nothing but beautiful coffee purity.
• Add finely-ground coffee
• Fill water container with ice water
• Assemble Dripo and enjoy the best cup of coffee you’ve ever had
The Dripo releases 45 drops per minute. It’s slow, but as the Japanese know, it’s worth taking the time to create something that’s perfect. All you have to do is set it up and let it work its magic over 2 to 3 quick hours.
Take your exquisite brew with you! The Dripo comes with a built-in, spill-proof, airtight lid so that you can sip your coffee wherever you go—or just save it for later.
Our goal with Dripo was to deliver a simple and elegant cold-brew coffee maker that produces a fantastic cup of cold brew and can be used at home or on the go.

For Coffee Lovers
How did you come up with the idea for this product?
Having been previously addicted to Iced Americanos, we instantly fell in love with cold-brew when we discovered it several years ago. At the time, cold-brew was only available via industrial sized or full immersions systems. We couldn’t find a decent home based slow drip solution, so we created one :)
What makes your product special?
Dripo is an all-in-one ice drip coffee maker, includes a built-in portable coffee cup with spill proof lid so you can enjoy your coffee right away. It's small and light enough to use at home or on the go.
What has been the best part of your startup experience?
Aside from enjoying that perfect cup of coffee everyday, the best part, by far, has been the feedback that we receive from customers who love Dripo just as much as us. There is no better feeling in the world than receiving an unexpected email or call from one of our awesome users about how Dripo has exceeded their expectations.

This coffee maker does make very good cold-brew coffee, I will grant that. For that reason, my wife says I have to give it three stars. I wanted to give it two, but she says that might hurt the seller's business. I don't want to hurt anybody's business, but I do wish the coffee maker could be relied upon to, you know, make coffee. I feel like by paying for it, I held up my end of the transaction. (I should also note that I have used the coffee maker more than a dozen times now, and she has used it only a couple, so *maybe* my opinion is slightly more informed than hers, but again, I'm not trying to make waves here. She is the light of my life, my lodestar and constant flame.) Anyway, if you like delicious cold-brew coffee and don't want to hurt anybody's business and aren't on a tight schedule, I can unequivocally recommend this product.
Upper reservoir takes close to 300ml.
The dripping part is a white plastic bit separate from the top reservoir. I thought it is a one piece design. That's kind of a plus, since if the dripping part is clogged or drip too fast, they can have a replacement part for that.
The coffee ground basket can hold a lot of ground, but that's not really needed since the top reservoir is just about 300 ml. When the top reservoir is completely emptied into the bottom coffee cup, the water line in the bottom will almost touch the bottom of the coffee basket, so you can't really add more water to the top reservoir to make more coffee. It has markings for 20g, 30g and 40g of coffee, but most likely you will just use a measuring spoon. The 40g line is at half the height of the basket, so there is a lot of empty space above the ground.
The fineness of the filter looks similar to Able Brewing Disk (non-fine version), which might mean there will be a lot of fine grounds in the coffee, so I applied the paper filter on top of the stainless steel filter and then screwed the filter onto the basket.
I prewetted the grounds completely with cold water from watercooler, then placed another piece of filter paper on top, added water to the top reservoir and let it start dripping. During the process, the drip stopped once. I shook the reservoir a bit as it seems to be a little air bubble on the dripper bit causing it, and unscrewed the cap and reservoir even looser, and it started dripping normally.
As it is a slow process, the coffee didn't mix and came out with a nice looking gradient in color. I shook the cup and the coffee mixed into a dark color. It tastes good, and after diluting it a bit(probably 1.5:1 coffee:water) it tastes even sweeter.
Now that I moved from dorm with shared bathroom to an apartment with a sink inside the room, the cleanup is much less tedious. Previous comment:
It is somewhat difficult to clean up the grounds compared to other coffee making methods. For Aeropress, one can just push the plunger to get everything out; for pourover, one can take out the filter with the used ground, but for this one some coffee ground sticks onto the basket. After knocking it on trash bin to get most spent ground out, you have to dig out the remaining coffee ground and take it to a sink to clean it up. A basket-shaped filter may make it easier but I'm not sure which size will fit.
The filter is really expensive. You can get two packs of 350 Aeropress filters at $9.51, while one pack of 50 dripo filters is $4.95. The Aeropress one is just a little bit larger than the dripo one, about 3mm larger radius.
3. About if it uses up the coffee ground fully(not sure about that)
Also, the round paper filter doesn't cover the top of the coffee ground completely, and water mainly pass through the center of the round filter, so probably some of the coffee ground isn't fully extracted. It might be better to have a narrower basket(smaller radius) so all the ground is fully spent. Sometimes I make a paper cone with a piece of filter paper and place it on top of the flat filter paper on top of the gound to distribute the water droplet more evenly.
4. Cap design
As others have said, the cap tends to accumulate liquid. Not sure if the lid is watertight, as when I shook the reservoir to get it dripping, water seems to have leaked from the small venting hole. But the rubber pad seems to cover the venting hole too.
Update Sep 12 2017:
Encountered problem that the water frequently stops dripping due to air bubble stuck onto the dripper part in the reservoir. Not sure how to avoid that problem.
When it does drip, it feels like the drip speed increased compared to when I just got it. Also, you may have to adjust your ground size a bit to avoid water accumulating in the ground basket, if you are using another paper filter under the ground. Coffee beans too fresh may also cause water get stuck in the ground basket as they will release gas when wetted.
I've been using this and just love it so much, so I recommended this to many coffee loving friends.
This is super simple brewer and works for lazy-ass like me.
It's cold brew, people.
Cold brew doesn't make coffee as quick as you can with other brewing method like Aeropress, hand drip or machine brewing.
It's supposed to be slow, so it can extract the flavors without the bitterness.
Just don't brew the coffee when you need it.
Do it ahead of time, like I do before I go to bed.
Each night, I hand mill the beans using Hario Ceramic Hand Mill, and it's at the second finest setting.
As directed, assemble the brewer with filter, put the grounds, roughly 20g, which I found just enough for me, fill the water to the top, throw it into fridge before I go to bed and forget about it till the morning. I don't even need ice cubes by doing so.
Every morning, I'm being greeted with nice, smooth, and aromatic coffee.
Move the coffee to other cup/mug and either enjoy as is or add milk to the taste.
I'm not even using expensive coffee beans. I just found myself some not-so-expensive beans from local HEB store.
Some say tamping is recommended, and some say put the paper filter on top of the coffee, so you can have less waste of coffee grounds.
Sure it'd be nice to do so, but I don't find it necessary.
Don't forget. If you register this product with gosh!, they give you one-time code for their filter!!
