    Hey Z,
    Try filtering the fine grind out using a filter paper after the plunging.
    Keep working away at it.

    Last summer I bought myself a generic one off eBay. If you search for cold drip machine on there, it's the one with the silver steel frame/collar, spherical top flask and cylindrical bottom flask. It came with filters, and worked really well. So well that some work colleagues were running two at work overnight and bottling their brew to sell at work! The tap is a little fiddly, but I'm no expert and was able to get a good result. Let me know if you get one I'll give you more detailed instructions.

    So I am thinking of upgrading my coffee selection. I have always just gone for fairly cheap coffee and got decent results, however I just tried Grinders new cold brew concentrate (I tend to try all new cold brews just out of respect) and it is very tasty. So I am looking at some single origins. I have gone back through this thread for some ideas. However I am thinking I will go with a natural Ethiopian bean from what I learned from this video https://youtu.be/N8meCjVsJWI . I am looking at roasted beans don't have time to roast my own with twin boys at home.

    Has anybody tried Ethiopian, does this work with cold brew, is it worth ~$50/kg instead of $12 Aldi (not bad coffee tbh).

    The iKegger Nitro Keg is definitely happening still working out other finances but the wife is on board

    Well, there's quite a variety of Ethiopian beans.....but the ones I've used in cold drip (not cold brew....just haven't tried) have worked really well. Have largely used Yirgacheffe for this purpose.

    Reducing brew time

    Thanks Barry I will definitely give Yirgacheffe a go. Also does anybody have any suggestions / condemnations of online roasters. I will get to a local roaster here in Adelaide but it is not always convenient.

    Also I noticed on the Grinders cold brew their brew time is 6 - 8 hours. Originally I used to brew for 24 hours but have reduced this to 18, thinking I might try going for 8. Again love to hear peoples experiences.

    Ethiopian Harrar Longberry Horse roasted and aged to bring out the strong wild blueberry note. Absolute stunner!

    I just finished a bottle of Harrar. Was amazing. I roasted a little darker than some would for cold drip and was a fruity chocolate drink. Perfect for pick me ups at work.

    Found another Cold Brew option for those CSers who love their brew cool...
    Looks very simple and pretty well foolproof too I'd reckon.

    It is available to buy in Oz, just need to do a search to locate them.
