  • Black Blood of the Earth

    Hello people,

    I am new to the forum and found it looking for help to buy an espresso machine & grinder.

    But what I really want as I drink my coffee black and sugarless is cold extraction coffee.. I have had this once a bottle imported from the US for me as a gift.

    I am not rich enough to keep buying it like this. Investing in my own espresso gear a big big thing.  I am wondering is there a machine for this cold extract.. As it has absolutly NO bitterness or acidity and packs a good wake up kick.  Its website pics look like a mad chemists lab.

    Ill put a limk here, I am sure most of you know this stuff anyway.. but yes any information on Australian more so Tasmanian production or a machine, before I just go for hot espresso would be really appreciated.

    Thanks

    Something like this would be what youre after, as opposed to espresso equipment: http://www.cuppacoffee.com.au/hario-cold-water-dripper.html

    There are much bigger ones available too.

      Hi Meredith, and welcome to CoffeeSnobs.

      Espresso and cold filter coffee are very different animals, and if CF is what you want then it is very easy to make. A Google search will provide lots of info, and a search of this site (remember to set the time for longer than 1 week) will show you some home-made makers.

      With good beans and a reasonable grinder youll soon be on your way.

        Thank you guys

        Yes Ive been all over the site and web past few days. I love that hario dripper Richard it looks good.. but I read up and the toddy makes a stronger brew.. and is cheaper. So I have decided .. I think... on a new bit of mesh for my plunger and a good grinder.. and a toddy one for me and one for a friend too.

        The only thing I didnt like about toddy was that it has paper filters.. I dont like em for some reason.. I saw this too:

        http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/images/B004EBUZ1A/ref=dp_image_0?ie=UTF8&n=284507&s=kitchen

        Its around 3 or 4 hundred depending on size.

        It was what the maker of the black blood coffee said inspired him to make his own machine.

        Was also good to see with a day or so of reading this cold coffee isnt so rare..

        Thank you for the help again

        Meredith

          In the home unit (1 pound of coffee.) the Toddy uses a reusable plastic filter, not paper. Their commercial sized unit (5 pounds of coffee.) uses a paper filter.

              It seems to be working, you converted me.
              Still using my plunger to make cold process, I do like the look of the cold drip makers though.
