What is the Melodrip?

In the pour-over realm, things have gotten pretty interesting lately with one of the newer coffee devices on the market. There is something out now called “Melodrip”. What this device does is enable a more even extraction of grounds when pouring for a Chemex, V60, or any other pour-over type method.

It is essentially designed to work like a shower head. It is composed of a stick that holds a “filter” on the end that is basically a bunch of holes that distribute water into a “rain” over the grounds when water is poured through it rather than a simple steady stream from a kettle.

Waka Coffee: Bringing Instant Back

You may remember when I wrote an article a while back about the roots of a specialty instant coffee movement happening among coffee drinkers. What has once been deemed a major “no-no” among coffee connoisseurs is now something that is actually being added back into the coffee drinkers’ arsenal of brown-liquid creating weapons. As I’ve started experimenting with specialty instant coffee myself, I am going to tell you a little bit about a new company on the scene: Waka coffee.
