Kyoto Style Coffee is a coffee beverage that is brewed over 16 hours using slow-drip gravity-extraction. The method of brewing was originally invented by Dutch sailors in the 1600s, re-engineered by Japanese artisans the following century, and finally perfected by Dripdash in 2018. Dripdash is the first wholesale manufacturer in the US that is creating this beverage in a Ready-to-Drink format.
Kyoto Style Coffee is a naturally occuring nootropic, which means it enhances cognition and memory, and facilitates learning. Unlike hot coffee, which extracts oils and a variety of other chemicals from coffee, Kyoto Style Coffee is created through a less aggitative brewing process, which in turn greatly reduces the acidity of the coffee, up to 70% less than hot coffee.
When used in the right quantities, Kyoto Style Coffee can help you burn fat by increasing metabolism and is also a great antioxidant.
Although both styles of brewing are made at room temperature or below, they are completely different brewing processes, which result in different outcomes. Just as French Press doesn’t taste like Espresso and are each consumed in different volumes, Cold Brew and Kyoto Style Coffee use different coffee to water ratios, brewing times, grind settings, and calibration.
Cold Brew is one of the most straight-forward and simple brewing processes, which is created through an immersion process: you take coarse coffee grounds, soak them overnight in water, and then remove the coffee grounds through a filter before consumption. Easy process, 6.5/10 in flavor.
Kyoto Style Coffee is an erosion brewing process that’s built for precision brewing in a 3 layered system. The first layer is the water, second is the bed of coffee with filters on the top and bottom, and the third layer is the extract that is created from the interaction of the first two layers. Rather than controlling the total amount of time the coffee is soaked in water (generally 12-24 hours for Cold Brew), Kyoto Style Coffee controls the flow rate of the water that goes through the coffee, which alters the taste profile dramatically.
The result of Kyoto Style brewing is the smoothest, strongest, and least bitter coffee you will EVER try. If you can find a different coffee that beats us in any of these 3 features, let us know and we will give you a 100% refund. Difficult process, 10/10 in flavor.
Traditionally, Kyoto Style Coffee is meant to be served chilled, but it also tastes incredible when it’s hot! We’ve tried a variety of heating methods including microwaving and heating over the stove, but our favorite method is frothing the coffee, if you have the equipment available to you.
Much to contrary belief, coffee is a potent source of healthful antioxidants. In fact, coffee shows more antioxidant activity than green tea and cocoa! Finally, chlorogenic acid, an important antioxidant found almost exclusively in coffee, is also thought to help prevent cardiovascular disease.
The only recommendation we make is starting off with drinking ½ of the bottle or less and see how you feel after 30 minutes. Don’t let the delicious flavor fool you - because our Kyoto Style Coffee is packed with caffeine!

Because of the seasonality of coffee, we have to change the source of the coffee between 2-4 times per year. We have been working for nearly 2 years with the same roasters and direct trade farms, where we ensure ethical labor laws are in-place. A big part of our industry is coffee transparency and we value our relationships with the farmers. Our coffees are also all Rainforest Alliance certified.
Our year-round flavor-profile for the Kyoto Style Coffee is a Mokha-Java flavor. The original Mokha comes from Yemen, and Java from Indonesia, but due to the scarcity and cost of the original source, we mimic the flavors as best we can with alternative origins. Most recently, we used an Ethiopian for the Mokha part, which gives a berry-like body and a Nicaraguan coffee for the Java portion, which gives our coffee the smooth and delicious dark chocolate and macadamia finish.
We recommend using our product to start every day, especially on the way to work or the gym. Instead of waiting to make coffee at home or going to a coffee shop to purchase overpriced coffee, you now have access to the most delicious coffee ever made.
