I am not sure which dripper to use for a commercial drip station.. I know the Hario requires more technique but I wonder of any other drippers allow for the infusion then pour the rest of the water and walk away so I can prepare other drinks. The Beehouse has no contours on the top end I assume for water to steep while brewing right?

Is there a brewer that will brew a good cup with little to no technique or is technique key?

Please help me decide!

Technique will always play a huge part in any manual brew method, that's the best part of brewing coffee!  Learn and experiment and dial in your brew method.  You will become better and faster and in the end, the long way is the best way!

In that case I may just go with Hario.  It's prettier.

Many coffee shops will adjust the grind for the V60 so they can just pour and walk away, so as long as you have a good grinder you should be fine with either choice.

 
Less water, more grounds.

I will be using a bulk grinder.  I thought the inner ridges allow to much water to run outside and under the grounds if I were to pour and walk away.  The Beehouse has ridges up half way for this.

UPDATE:  Just spoke with espressoparts.com.  They say the Beehouse is too little for pour and walk away brewing.  The Hario will allow for me to adjust brew speed and I figure I may as well go all out and wow customers with a good technique.  How is the plastic Hario cone compared to glass and ceramic cones?

At home I wouldn't care (I have a ceramic V60-2) but for making a presentation for a retail customer the ceramic would look classier - even if the coffee tastes the same.

 
I chew coffee beans with my teeth while gargling with 195 F water to enjoy coffee. What is this "coffee brewing" device you speak of?

I'd go for plastic..less expensive, less chance of breaking it, works just as good, maybe even better, i've heard the ridges on the plastic one are bit more pronounced thus better for brewing.. the clear plastic one is my favorite.

I manage a busy café with a manual drip bar station. We used ceramic for a while, but they got stress fractures from baristas being rough with them during cleaning. The acrylic ones are sturdy but don't look as nice, and glass (what we're using now) has been fine. I personally prefer the ceramic because of the look, but if you're worried about longevity then you might want to stick with acrylic.
