  1. Drip coffee is a kind of filter coffee.
    There are some methods for drip coffee some of which include
    Cold Drip Coffee

    What is drip coffee?

    You start by filling the top glass with water and ice and let the ice water drip onto the coffee bed. You can control the flow as well as the speed of each “drip” with the knob. Adjusting the flow will depend on your grind size as well as how fresh your beans are or how you like your coffee. On average there should be about a 1–2 second pause between each drip. The coffee bed will eventually become soaked with all the water and the coffee will be extracted through the filter and will drip down to the bottom glass pot… literally drip by drip.
    A cold drip method is particularly a long process and should ideally take about 4–8 hours.
    Pour-over Coffee (also alternatively called hand-drip coffee)

    What is drip coffee?

    There are many kinds of pour-over coffee using all sorts of drippers.
    A dripper is what you use to place the paper filter and make the coffee bed. The most common dripper you may find in cafes is the Hario V60 dripper. The dripper that you see in the image above is a V60 dripper. Drippers can be of plastic, steel, copper or ceramic material. There are many kinds of drippers and not all are the same. Hario V60, Kalita Wave, Kalita 101, Clever Dripper, etc etc YOU NAME IT. Different drippers also require different brewing techniques.
    But basically the same concept applies, you are creating a coffee bed above a filter, soaking it with water and extracting the coffee with each drip as it seeps through aforementioned filter. What is different about this compared to the cold drip coffee is that you use hot water and it only takes about 2–4 minutes depending on how much you intend to brew.
    Personally as a barista, I love using a Kalita 101 or Kalita Wave, as these drippers have 3 holes in them. I find that you are able to get a more concentrated extraction with more prominent flavor notes , a good body and a syrup-ish mouth-feel with these drippers. Three holes slows down the extraction and it decreases the chance of brewing a watery filter coffee (which I don’t quite fancy).

  2. Drip Coffee well that’s an interesting question. The unit will have a top reservoir where you pour the pot of water. In the same top unit there will be a basket where you put a filter and then add your ground coffee. Put the pot on the burner, shut the lid and start. The water will pump up and then drip into the grounds, and then drip into the pot until all the water has been used. The trick is to have enough grounds measured to match the cups of water. I like darker coffee so I usually add one spoonful “for the pot”
    Coffee in a restaurant using the BUNN units is drip coffee.
    Percolated coffee: well the pot sits on the burner of the stove. The lid generally has a glass knob in the older camp type pic 1.9 pic with the filter/stalk outside the pot) The grounds go in the metal basket on the stalk and then the unit sits inside the pot full of water( water should not touch bottom of basket) Turn on the heat and the water get hot and “percolates up the hole in the stalk” and goes down through the grounds back into the pot. This continues until you decide that the color of the coffee in the glass knob is what you think you will like. Think: the water keeps going up the stalk and going down through the sam…

  3. There is a concept such as a “drip coffee”, which is also referred as pour-over.
    It is not clear here, in fact, we all understand that the method of brewing called pour-over is considered as a separate one.
    I think to write about “Drip Coffee” only when it is brewed in the drip coffee maker.
    Do you think it is literate or not?

  4. Drip Coffee was one of the three common methods of making coffee when I was a kid. Forget electricity, that was for people with money for electrical appliances. You had stovetop espresso units, drip coffee pots, and percolators. The worst of these was the last. Who ever thought it was a good idea to drip coffee back into the boiling water and keep it boiling and recirculating through the coffee grounds really should have been declared a Peace Criminal (as opposed to War Criminal). But it was real popular in the 50s when I was a kid, and you could tell your coffee was almost “ready” because the see-through top let you see that darker (already brewed) coffee was bubbling up to the upper chamber to drip through AGAIN.
    Espresso is a topic for a different unit as it is not drip.
    The note I wish to make is Drip vs Filter. Technically, filter coffee is drip. You pour 94C water over ground coffee and gravity takes it out through the filter and through the little hole into your cup or pot, dripping. But historically we’ve always called those systems “filter coffee” or “filtered”.
    The first drip coffee pots I saw did not have those mesh or paper filters, just a couple of chambers, the top one with an attachable (or insertable) basket made of aluminum with holes in it. You boiled your water first, sometimes in the pot you were going to use as a serving carafe, if you had a fancy unit that allowed for this, but most often in your tea kettle. And you poured your water (Just Before The Boil was the common instruction) into the top chamber so that it flowed through and over the basket of coffee. Because there was no special quality to the filter, it was a more bitter cuppa than you got with later Melitta type “filter coffee” makers. This is why Geeks differentiate between the two. For years – in the 70s/80s, “Melitta” was state of the art to many people because it was far superior to perc and sufficiently superior to “drip”. Melitta merely marketed (rather successfully) the same idea as the coffee makers in cafes, diners and restaurants. As did Mr. Coffee (and others), but they went full electric while Melitta was the economical method.
    Again, technically, both methods rely on gravity and the coffee-fied water “drips” through, but when your talking to an old school coffee geek, “drip” refers to the method I described. I think it dates back to the turn of the previous century. It was certainly popular in the 20s and 30s. You can find vendors selling vintage models of them on line from that era.

  5. Drip coffee is a process of making coffee. The drip coffee maker is the most widely and commonly available products in today’s world. The drip coffee process is where cold water is heated and sent through a tube/cylinder and sprayed over coffee grounds that are typically held in a filter.
    To describe drip coffee better is to also describethe perculated coffee method, as done in the old days when I was growing up and a young woman. Perculated coffee is a process where water is boiled, sent UPWARDS through a cylinder/tube and over the coffee grounds. This typically produces a more “robust” (some might say bitter or pungent) taste, or even stronger than the same bean coffee if “dripped.”
    Either method is good, depends on ones taste.
    I have to add that, while I broke my all-glass *French Coffee Press* years ago, I never replaced it for some unknown reason… likely being too convenient to have a drip coffee maker in the form of single-cup Keurig cups, the French Press makes a very nice robust cup of coffee.
    The French Coffee Press method makes a nice, strong, flavorful coffee (YUM)
    This video describes it better than I can. It’s a quick & easy video to watch. However, you can find a more elaborate process of brewing French Press by searing for Coffee Barista Fresh Press. 🙂

  6. Grind the coffee, put grounds into a filter (or folded paper towel), insert into filter cone. Boil water, pour over grounds. What drips into the coffee pot below the filter cone is known as drip coffee. This is also known as pourover coffee.

  7. Drip coffee is when hot water is slowly dripped over the coffee grounds. A variation is perked coffee where the same hot water is recycled up over the grounds.

  8. Drip coffee is a brewing method where hot water drips onto a bed of coffee grounds and filters down into the cup or pot.
    Electric home coffee pots and hipster pourovers are all drip coffee, but most of the time drip refers to automatic makers like Mr. Coffee.
    In coffee houses, standard drip is often called brewed or batch coffee, so as not to confuse it with espresso, french press, or a hand made or machine made pourover.

  9. What is drip coffee?
    It’s like pour over, but not pretentious. water percolates up the tube and down onto the grounds and drips through tot he carafe. Then you pour that into your drinking vessel of choice and have a nice day. Preferably while looking askance towards the future.

  10. drip coffee: hot water flows by gravity through coarse ground coffee, extracting the coffee substances
    espresso: super hot water under high pressure, app. 1.5 bar is pressed through extremely fine grounded(app. 6–12 g.) coffee for app. 20–30 sec.

  11. A drip coffee works by dripping or spraying boiling water on top on coffee grounds inside a filter. The water extracts the coffee and drips into a container below. The majority of home electric coffee makers work this way. It was popularized in the US by Mr. Coffee in the 1970s.
    A Guide to How Coffee Makers Work

  12. Well nowadays in the USA people use those Keurig and espresso machines. The inventor of the Keurig machine not surprisingly, became extremely rich, just like the inventor of the Sonicaire toothbrush. These products were revolutionary. Anyhow, We finally got with the times. Europe has been using espresso machines for decades.
    In the 1970’s and 1980s we would use machines that would just drip the water over the coffee grounds in a filter once. The water wasn’t pressurized. Drip coffee could also be made quickly using a manual method. The drip coffee machine made coffee relatively quickly , but it was a cumbersome way of making a cup or cups of coffee. First you had to grind the beans or have already ground loose coffee. Then you had to have specialised filters and hope the coffee grounds didn’t spill while brewing or hope you find t make a mess with them, Then you had to fill the machine with water, etc. Blah blAh….. Far different from popping a cartridge in and flicking a switch. Drip coffee is not robust with flavor. Made too strong and it tastes like mud. These machines still exist, and this method of making coffee is still used but it is nowhere near as popular as the Keurig and espresso machines of today. Espresso machines are cumbersome too, but they make a bomb ass cup of coffee, unlike no other. Just like with any other machine, the strength of the espresso coffee can be adjusted
    Drip coffee was a much quicker way to make coffee compared to what was the popular method of making it before that during the 1960s and prior— the percolator. The percolator gave people used and abused coffee taste and it took a long time to make coffee this way. (about 20 min?) The percolators recycled boiled water over coffee beans Then the made coffee would recycle drip over the coffee beans ;).Mmm , “yummy” 😉 —NOT, LOL. It was essentially a specialised pot you’d put on a stove. Then they started making electric percolators. Strangely enough, even percolators still exist today. Some people still prefer them.

  13. For most of us, the difference between drip coffee and espresso coffee is just the names. That is why most of us just accept that grind fineness determines if a coffee is meant for the espresso machine or the coffee maker. Although the grind is a huge contributing factor, it is one of many determining factors.
    While any combination available can be ground for drip coffee, not all coffees are suitable for espresso.
    Many roasters will designate certain coffees for drip unlike with espresso.
    Drip coffee is coffee made by running hot water through the coffee grounds either held in a paper filter or a mesh cone.
    The process of brewing Drip coffee is slower and lower temperatures are used, hence the composition of the blend is made just right to suit drip coffee.
    Drip coffee is the best for savoring specific single origin flavors and aromas. This is because the brewing process is gentle hence allowing roasters to infuse an array of flavors and aromas into the coffee.
    Drip coffee also contains more caffeine and has a lighter body, when compared to other coffee types such as espresso.
    When all is said and done, a well-brewed cup of coffee can be just as great as an espresso shot.

  14. Drip coffee is hot water that slowly filters through ground coffee beans and and absorbs it’s oils and essences. It is not put under any pressure so it drips out of its filter by only the force if gravity and takes quite alot of patience to make. The coffee beans would not be ground as fine as in an espresso or the coffee would be to strong. You can go into a good coffee shop and they will going your bens for the specific type of coffee you are making if you wish.
