Atmos Cold Drip on Indiegogo
Some friends of mine have launched a new home cold drip system on Indiegogo, which I thought some on here might be interested in - I notice there's now a sticky dedicated to cold brew!
While only small batches can be done (~250ml or 8.5fl oz) you don't need to constantly adjust the water rate as the grind size automatically does this for you through an air lock. You literally just fill it with coffee, attach the bottles and flip it, then wait. The air lock also means the coffee isn't exposed to the air during the process, which helps it from going stale.
Anyway, if you're keen sign up - It's a fixed goal so no items will be shipped unless it reaches it's target. It also means you get your money back if it doesn't reach the target.
Disclaimer While I know the people launching this product, I am not making anything from talking about it. I want to get it funded for two reasons - 1) to support my friends and 2) So that the goal is met and I can get one. Just felt I should put that out there as I haven't been around this forum for a while.
Anyway, hope some of you like it enough to get behind it.
ooo i like the industrial look of it, simplistic
tempting, but what am I going to do with all my other cold brew paraphernalia
It's not cheap! Even at the early bird price it's more expensive than the Cold Bruer and the Brew Over and only makes 250ml at a time. It'd want to produce the goods!
That is true, however it has only 4 parts, and the main brew chamber is designed to last longer than us!

It may also be small enough to fit in the fridge, which may appeal to some.
It is also delicious
Does it come with lids for the bottles? I would have thought it would be handy to seal the bottle when full before putting it in the fridge.
Yes it does. Apparently they're not shown as they are still being finalised.

Another day, another "innovative" coffee maker.
Amazing new products seem to have a very short life in the coffee industry.
Yep I'm a cynic, I've seen more than a few of these gimmicks bite the dust over the years.
Really? What about the aeropress? Or the Bruer? Or the wacaco products? Having tasted the cold drip it produces, I can assure you it's no gimmick.

So many people love the process and routine of food prep, including coffee. I don't. I just want the end product. That's why I currently only use plunger for hot and immersion (not pour-over immersion, dunk the coffee behind filter in water style) for cold brew. I've been eyeing the Bruer for a simple and not stupidly expensive cold-drip system (but I've heard a few complaints, especially the amount of coffee required each time). This looks even simpler, less that can go wrong.
I generally only want it on weekends so the small capacities should be fine for me. Glad I decided to do a rare visit to these forums.
Campaign has been extended for a month so of you get any Christmas money and are keen you should still have time
