Coffee + Chill


This is quite the week for coffee lovers! I’m a tea drinker myself, but I can’t say no to a tall glass of iced frappe. THAT’s my indulgence! You don’t see many apparatuses dedicated to preparing cold coffee, so here’s one from the bean-loving geniuses at Emerge Lab. Christened the Dripo, this little thing can prepare your favorite beverage in two different ways. Assemble the Dripo into an iced-drip apparatus, having chilled water dripping through your ground coffee, or a cold brew, where your coffee is immersed in cold water. Both techniques are proven to be healthy and to make your coffee tastier, some say. Once you’re done concocting your precious drink, the Dripo is nice enough to convert into a super handy tumbler that you can carry on the go!

Standing at just 1 ft. tall, the Dripo is the most portable coffee maker out there. Plus with no mechanical parts or electric power required, you can literally have your coffee wherever and whenever you feel (with the added bonus of knowing your little indulgence is freshly prepared and healthy too)! Take that, Starbucks!
