Here is another type of "pour over" brewer. I had one of these, years ago... as I remember, it did decent coffee.

That's a vietnamese coffee brewer, different method, and in many circles, is only complete when served with sweetened condensed milk. It's the subject of the first "How To" I'm going to shoot with Beata, and also should be on a forthcoming CG podcast.

Great article, Mark, but let's not forget the Chemex brewer. It's not only a great pour-over manual drip with its own excellent paper filters, but is also the most aesthically pleasing of all coffee makers (with the possible exception of the more cumbersome balance brewers).

Gasp!  If you're going to give time to this method, then I demand that us Neapolitan drips get mentioned, too!  j/k! :)


But please tell us more about cloth filters!!  Where to buy 'em?  Which brand!  How to clean them!

Thanks again for the article.

I only know about commercial cloth filtes (ie, for the Luxus brewing system from Fetco), and the cloth filters for vac pots (Hario still sells them), and of course, for the hario drip pictured in the article (I bought a dozen just in case I can't get them down the road). I've used cloth filters for as much as 2+ years on vac pots before having to replace, and I'm still on my first cloth filter for the Hario.

The link above to the #4 size cloth filter looks interesting - has anyone tried that one yet?

Cheers

Mark

I think it's unfair to show off that little Hario brewer when many of us will never be able to get one,  what with the demise of hariousa!

I love this method but I still prefer french press.

Hario's working to find a new US distributor.

Which is my way of letting any vendors / importers out there know, it's available. If you're interested, contact me and I'll forward you the Hario rep's contact info in Japan.

Pour hot water into your cup to preheat it, then toss it before pouring in the coffee.  Making a single cup of coffee in a brewer and pouring the brew into a cold cup will cool the coffee too much for many people's liking.

I would actually not preheat that cup, for if you pour the right temp water (196-202?) over those grounds, that will heat the cup just fine, and the coffee will still be plenty hot (if not too hot) to drink.

Could I add another testamonial to unbreakable pourover filter holders:  combined with a stainless  thermos and a hot pot for boiling water, they are an essential coffee survival tool while traveling weekends in New England.

Some of you may consider paper filters and preground beans (enough for a saturday and a sunday morning) a little beyond the pale.  However, I'd argue there's a huge upside to having real coffee in bed, huddled under a down comforter just after waking from a cool fall or winter night at a bed and breakfast.  

Having it without the french press cleanup drill or the silly conversations over bad brown water downstairs makes things all the more delicious.

Thanks
Marty
