I think that I received my first cold drip set up as a wedding gift. I have enjoyed cold drip ever since, although I primarily end up making iced coffee (1/4 drip and 3/4 milk with teaspoon or so of sugar) with it. It does make a nice cuppa if you are in a hurry or only want to make a cup or two. I still prefer fresh brewed, but only if it is fresh. If I have a choice between coffee that has been sitting on a hot plate for 1/2 an hour or so and a cold drip with hot water added I will go for the cold drip every time. And no matter what the more developed slurpers think, it still beats the hell outta Folgers Crystals, no matter what Mrs. Olsen says (no doubt she publicly proclaimed the slimy goodness of lutefisk, as well )
What do you think?
That's what I think.
There's a train everyday, leaving either way...

Overheat your coffee, let the beans go stale, add too much or too little of the grinds or let it sit on a warmer all day, and even the most expensive beans grown inside the cone of a volcano and hand-picked by virgins will taste like pond water.
I want some of this coffee. The heck with $100 per pound Kopi Luwak coffee that has been digested and eliminated out the back end by civets. I want volcano cone virgin picked coffee and nothing else will do. I hope Santa is listening.
