Topic: ? flipdrip brewer ? +Cold water? (3 msgs / 83 lines)
1) From: Marchiori, Alan
I'm not sure this will help, but I didn't know what a flip-drip was and
managed to find that it is also called a "Napolitana" and here is a link
that has a section on how to use one:http://fantes.com/coffeemakers_manualdrip.htm#napolitanaThey also have a cold-water brewing device on the same page.  Has anyone
ever tried one of these?  Is it any good?

Thanks Jim & Alan
Yep, the Neapolitan/flip-drip is the  kind of brewer I have.  When I
flip it, a bit of HOT water goes between the inside of the container
(without a spout) and the outside of "B" and squirts out the vent
hole.
Perhaps this exciting behavior is the reason this kind of brewer isn't
more popular!
I have a cold-water brewer too.  I've never been able to get much
flavor from the concentrate made in it.   The brew has a very mild
flavor, no zip!  Haven't tried the concentrate for iced coffee.  That's
on the 'to do' list next summer.
I noticed the "Coffee Biggin French Drip" brewere on the Fantes site.
Someone on the list had asked about using this a few weeks back.

Hi Dave,
Sounds like you got a defective unit or odd 
design, with just a steam hole rather than 
pressure release valve.
I remember them from my youth in Europe. In 
Hungarian, Czech, Yugoslavian, and some Italian 
cafes around Trieste, they use to bring them, 
piping hot, to the tables, and flip them. Then we 
waited, and got some nice strong coffee. For some 
reason, the brew tasted more like mochapot coffee 
than drip. Don't know why.
