Introducing BRUT drip coffee bag
Did somebody say drip bag?
A drip coffee bag is a single-serve filter bag that contains ground coffee. You simply put it in a cup and add hot water to make a delicious cup of coffee instantly.
I am no stranger to the concept of a drip coffee bag (I grew up in Japan, where the drip coffee bag was born). Up until last year, I always thought drip coffee bags make staled, not so pleasant coffee, just because you need to pre-grind the coffee and it loses aromatics during the production and shelf life.
When the likes of Single o and Stich Coffee released their drip coffee bags in the Sydney market last year, I was pleasantly surprised by the taste and popularity among coffee lovers.
Last year, I had an opportunity to make a prototype in collaboration with 15CM Japanese Cheesecake. We decided to use BRUT Colombia Cinnamon Process Coffee and I was so amazed by the flavors and how it managed to preserve its beautiful cinnamon aroma.
For my first official BRUT drip coffee bag release, I decided to use my latest fruit-infused coffee: Colombia Jardines del Eden Castillo Passionfruit and Strawberry They both tasted incredible when I first released them, and believe me when I say they taste as good in a drip bag! Plus, you don't need any equipment or brewing skills and you can take them everywhere with you :)
How to brew drip coffee bag:
- Tear open the drip bag
- Pull the handles out and place them on the rim of the cup
- Pour hot water (93C) over coffee slowly till it reaches 200g
- Remove the drip bag and enjoy!
Q: 93C? I don't have a temperature variable kettle.
A: Leave the kettle lid open for about 60 seconds after the boil. or you can add a tiny drop of freshwater after the boil.
Q: 200g? I don't have a scale.
A: The best is to know the size of your cup, so you can eye-ball it. If not, fill up the drip bag with hot water 3 times.
Q: What's the ideal cup size?
A: I prefer a narrow medium-size cup, about 250ml, not too tall. The drip bag will steep in a cup longer for an extra yumminess.
