Forget about spending your money at craft coffee shops — with the 6-Cup Silver Pour-Over Glass Coffeemaker from Made By Design™, you can get an artisanal cup of coffee from the comfort of your own home. This glass coffeemaker comes with a mesh metal filter that allows for the best water to coffee ratio, while letting essential oils from the coffee grounds pass through for a more robust flavor. The pour-over set also includes paper filters for an extra filtration step that results in a cleaner, smoother cup of coffee. You'll love the difference this coffeemaker brings to your morning cup of java.
I do love this coffee maker !! I love the price, I love the ease of cleaning it and I love the coffee that it makes. I don’t mind the grounds in the bottom of the coffee maker because I get them too. I don’t use the paper filters simply because I don’t see a reason to use a mesh filter and papers and I like my coffee strong. I also don’t want to use a bleached filter and I want to save the trees. The only thing that I’m not crazy about is that the glass carafe is a very thin glass and is very fragile. I owned my first one for six months before I accidentally hit it gently against the faucet while I was washing it and caused a few cracks. So I replaced it immediately but when this one cracks I’m not going to buy another. I’m going to find something else that has a thicker stronger less fragile glass carafe.
This pot is a great value since it includes a metal filter in the box. Unfortunately, I prefer paper filters and have noticed the pot does not work well for this. On some other brand pour-overs the indentation for the spout continues further down into the pot. This allows the spout to act as an air vent. In this pot the paper filters will often seal against the sides. Without this air vent, the air will bubble up around the filter, causing coffee to leak up out of the pot as it flows though the filter. So, for those of you who plan to use paper filters, keep looking. Those who use the metal filter will be happy. I'm not even sure why paper filters are included at all, since the pot seems to be designed with the metal one in mind.
Bought this as a replacement for my Chemex. I love the design, but there are two functional issues with the way it's formed. One, the rubber insulator gets a bit hot after you've brewed the coffee (I've never had that issue with the various types of Chemexes I've had), and two, there is not enough of a spout to provide airflow, so if you're brewing a larger batch, you have to use something like a straw to allow air to be released from the main chamber.
But for $20 (versus $35-45 for a comparable Chemex), it's well worth having to buy a little straw to use with it.
I love the full bodied flavor of coffee with this coffee maker. I don't have the recommended tea pot/spout, so my pours are not very accurate, but the flavor is excellent. The coffee pot came with filters, but I have no idea why because the metal laser cut filter does the job great. The only downside is that by the time the coffee is ready it's not very hot anymore.
I have never used a pour over coffee maker, and was unfamiliar with the brewing process. This product worked great for me, and the instruction booklet was very helpful. It gives you two different ways you can brew - I opted for not using the paper filters. The process itself is fairly slow, so this will probably be a weekend coffee maker for me. The end result was a great tasting cup of coffee, though. The overall design of the product is nice, and it seems sturdy. I would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for this type of coffee maker.
Fun, different way to make coffee. It is supposed to bring out more from the coffee. Hipsters like it, so YMMV. But seriously, I did like it. The instructions make a fairly strong coffee so be forewarned. It does require more time, patience, and care. Hand washing, etc. Sometimes, it's worth it.
