    Still trying to decide whether I want to try cold drip or not, particularly now that Melbourne has well and truly descended into Autumn/Winter mode. For the moment it’s a question of ‘do I spend more money on a cold drink that I’m not sure I’ll like or less money on a warm drink that I know I will?’. So far what I know is winning.

    P.S. Please explain the free Koko Black chocolate …

    P.P.S. Love the poem

    Blergh to cold drip coffee!

    Love your before and after chocolate pics hehe 😀

  3. Kath Lockett

    Love Upside Down Dogs website – one of my ‘go tos’ for a quick laugh.

    And your case is indeed rested. ‘Me before chocolate’ is far too dreadful to ever publish!

    I’ve never tried it!

  5. Kari @ bite-sized thoughts

    I don’t think cold drip coffee and I would be a good match. There is something about coffee that just demands hot – even lukewarm is too cold – and with winter coming, I’m afraid there is no room for ice cubes in my drinks.

    Also, I am laughing yet at “only talking about chlamydia in the context of koalas” 😀 And I love that poem – the words but also the structure. I’m liking this poetry twist on your blog of late!

    Haha I’ll take any excuse to see that dancing photo again!

    You are great at food photography. Definitely inspiring! 

  8. Vien @ We Dare Food

    hehe oh life’s always better after chocolate!

  9. Alayna @ Thyme Bombe

    Those silly koalas and their rampant chlamydia!

    Not a huge fan of cold coffee, really more of a tea girl in general though.

    I haven’t had cold drip coffee, but overnight iced coffee in a coffee press is delicious in hot weather!

    I should be grading my students’ spelling tests, and instead I’m reading your blog. It is worth it. Maybe I should put up a picture of myself before reading your blog, and after reading your blog. Your writing made me smile like tasting a real good piece of chocolate!
    My 4, 5, 6 grade students were delighted by your raw marzipan recipe. After too much grammar there is no better way to finish a lesson: Getting the hands sticky by rolling marzipan balls and popping them right into the mouth!

    I’m not really into coffee but I think I wouldn’t mind trying this 🙂

    Cold Drip Intrigues em so much! A friend who owns a coffee shop just showed me how to make it though he calls it a Toddy. I think its convenient for the lazy who don’t feel like waiting for their coffee to chill in the fridge. aka me 🙂

  14. Lisa @ Blithe Moments

    I’m not a coffee drinker so I can’t really comment, but I did want to say that was an impressive amount of cream with your scones. My other half (who I swear would live on cream alone if I let him) would approve greatly.

  15. JohannaGGG

    Cold coffee! Hot Coffee! It’s all just horrid coffee. And that is far too much cream for those poor wee scones! Give me chocolate – it provides everything I need (though I don’t think I will be doing heel clicks any time soon!)

  16. Hotly Spiced

    I need a spring in my step. I’d better get me some chocolate. And those people dishing out the cream are incredibly generous. xx

    Upside down dogs! I love them! In fact, I even inserted one in the middle of a lecture about statistics earlier in the semester.

  18. Winston

    Hello! I enjoy drip coffee from time to time…! Especially if it’s at a cafe I like that I know has good beans. And I don’t think I’d mind having more cream than scones, I’m weird like that. It’s like when I order fried noodles at restaurants, I secretly wished there were more eggs than noodles ;p

  19. Catherine

    But what is cold drip coffee? And do koalas get chlamydia? Poor things

  20. muppy

    i tried cold drip once, very clean flavour, not bad but not really enjoyable either.

    i use to love poetry at school, haven’t looked back there in a long time.

  21. whisperinggums

    Oh I remember that poem … it’s beautiful.

    And no, I have no interest in cold coffee.

    As for Facebook statuses, I don’t always get to see them … just as well it sounds!

  22. Gary

    I think Happy Hannah with chocolate is a better blogger 🙂

  23. hungryandfrozen

    Heel click!
    Your friends seem *almost* as delightful as you.
    Cold drip coffee! I first tried it last year, it is so delicious. Total revelation.

  24. Hannah

    Love, love these pictures. They have me smiling even before I your hilarious anecdotes. 🙂

    And, they have me craving iced coffee like crazy. I made a huge pot of it a week ago, and now it’s been cold, rainy, and generally clammy since then so I haven’t touched it. Boo!

  25. Rach

    Haha! Love that shot of you at the end!

  26. Louise

    Not being a coffee drinker, cold drip has passed me by. It does sound particularly vile though. I love that last photo too. I’d need more than coffee (or chocolate to recreate that though), think I’d have to book in for my knee reconstruction first.

    1. Louise

      Oh and well done you for poetry reading. I’ve never managed to get it. Although I have read The Bee Hut. I should have sensed your mother’s gentle guidance there.

  27. Heidi - Apples Under My Bed

    Is cold drip coffee vietnamese style coffee?? I’ve had that. & that’s great. You combine it with sweetened condensed milk – hello! Beautiful poem. Happy friday, lovely.

    oh my, Hannah. I try to come to your blog as often as I can (which lately, is not as often as I would like), in the hope of gaining some sort of foodie inspiration, some sort of food-envy experience to excite me about the possibility of being more creative and see what lovely thoughts you’ve had for the day. As a bonus I get poetry, and a poem that (you will not be remotely surprised to hear) seems to speak as strongly and clearly to me as it does to you. Thank you for sharing it.

  29. Daisy@Nevertoosweet

    HAHHAA Hannah you make me laugh 🙂 I love the photos of you with and without chocolate hahaha 😀 I’m a bit like you when I don’t get my daily sugar fix i’ get really cranky hehe ~

  30. Agnes

    That looks like the perfect ratio of scone to cream.


  31. Gena

    I have yet to try cold drip, but I look forward. Iced coffee, hot coffee, day old coffee. Doesn’t matter much at the moment. Just give me coffee.

  32. Emma

    I thought ‘cold drip’ was going to be about noses dripping due to a nasty cold. Me and my nose have been similarly occupied these past few days. Now playing catch up:)
