While I don’t claim to be a java junkie, I do love coffee. It’s the drink of choice when Charlotte the Great visits, and there are mornings I can’t seem to get my groove until I’ve downed a cup. I like it cold, hot, and in rare instances, black and potent. Dr. Drip Coffee offers individual brewing options. For those mornings, I don’t need a whole pot.
The December issue of Taste of Home Magazine highlights Dr. Drip Coffee and Charlotte the Great, and I put it to the test. We tried the Double Daily Remedy, which is Dr. Drip’s premium signature blend.
Since neither of us can smell, we just got right down to making a cup.
We started by boiling water on the stove. I thought it was medieval, but Charlotte the Great said, “It’s how we used to do it.”
Once we had our water boiled, we played barista.
Each box contains five pouches.
We tore the top off the pouch, per the instructions. Grandma struggled a bit but succeeded in not displacing any of the coffee grounds. I ripped right into Rambo and had to clean up some ground.
Each of these pouches contains all-natural, fair-trade, and organically grown coffee specially selected from some of the world’s best-growing regions. Artisan Roasters escort the beans through the roasting process, crafting rich, flavorful blends before the beans go on to receive a precision grind. Afterward, the grounds are rapidly vacuum-sealed to preserve the height of freshness.
The pouch is recyclable, compostable, and biodegradable!
Once we had the pouch open, we opened it up so that it could sit on top of our coffee mug.
We marveled at the cleverness.
We poured our boiled water into the top of the pouch and waited while it “brewed.”
We discussed how great this would be for travel. The pouches are the perfect size to be portable. Charlotte the Great thought they’d have been perfect for those long fishing and camping trips she’s been on and I thought they’d be great on the road or at work when you need a pick me up.
We let Dr. Drip Coffee sit for about a minute and then removed the pouch from the cup.
It was time to test the flavor.
With a cautious sip, we discovered that it was really good coffee.
It’s not as easy as instant coffee, but it tastes far better. It’s richer and definitely more like coffee from the pot. It really surprised us. It was deliciousness enough we each talked about a second cup!
The one drawback is the pricing. It’s about $2 per cup. We couldn’t justify this for everyday use. However, we both agreed that there were times when Dr. Drip Coffee would be handy. One box would last us each quite a while and we thought it was fun to make and watch.
