Love this! My previous pour over dripper had a shut-off valve that "held" the coffee until brewed. I was worried that I wouldn't achieve the same taste without the valve. It turns out that the small hole allows the coffee to drip very slowly so that great taste is achieved with much less hassle, and at a small fraction of the cost! It also stores easier, looks better and fits all of my mugs (even my skinny travel mug). I'm the only coffee drinker in my house, but will definitely buy another for when I have guests.
I was originally attracted to the bright red as so many of this ceramic cones are white and our #2 cone is white. I was in the market for a #4 cone and this one is GORGEOUS. It's color and form are fantastic - and then the hole drilled in the darn thing is TOO SMALL TO USE> it's a fail. save your money.
The orifice from which the brew drips is so short that the liquid runs to the outer edge of the area intended to fit inside the receiving liquid. That is no problem when the receiving container has a wide mouth; however, to fill my thermos I made a lathe turned adapter and found that much brew dripped outside the area above the thermos mouth and ran down the outside. I will glue a very small funnel beneath the orifice that will direct the dripping liquid to remain centered. Otherwise, I admire the Ceramic Drip Coffer Filter holder. Just be sure to premeasure the liquid needed for the receiving container as the filling process is not visible.
Ideal coffeemaker. Makes a much more delicious cup of coffee than any drip coffeemaker and takes up 1/10th of the space! This fits best on top of a mug (even if it's pretty wide-mouthed) and doesn't take very long at all. I live in a tiny apartment so I love that I can just make a cup of coffee and then put it in the sink to cool off. It is SUPER easy to clean and then I can put it in the cabinet and have clear counters! It is thick ceramic too so I don't have to worry as much as I would with my glass french press.
The coffee made using this pour-over method is smooth with wonderful flavor. While my drip coffee machine works just fine, I find that the coffee is not as tasty (probably thanks to all the plastic coffee travels through in a coffee machine). I do suggest "pre heating" this product by pouring a little boiling water through it prior to making the coffee. This does improve the flavor of your brew, and helps your coffee filter "stick" and stay in place. One of my favorite things about this little guy is how easy it is to clean! At this price, even if it doesn't hold up for long, I can certainly afford another.
