I've been using a 6-cup Chemex to make 2 mugs worth of coffee at a time, using 580 grams of water. Half the results go into a mug for immediate consumption, the rest goes into a Siig thermos and drunk about 12 minutes later.

I've been thinking about getting a pour-over but they all seem a bit small for a 580 gram batch. All the links I've found describe much smaller batches. Are any pour-over devices better for a larger amount? I really don't want to spend the time to make two batches every morning before work.

Hario advertises an 800-ml capacity pot to pair with the V60-03, so I'd imagine that it could handle 580ml pretty easily.

I use a Clever Coffee Driper to make about 1L frequently. I pour in about 150 grams of water for the bloom with it sitting on my table top (stopper closed), then sit it on top of my coffee jug and slowly pour the rest of the 1L of water over the top. Makes some pretty good coffee honestly. Usually total contact time with water is around 3:30. When making smaller amounts of coffee I use the Clever more as it was designed..... pour in 80 grams of water to bloom the coffee, then pour in the rest over the top and let it steep until about 2:30, then set it on top of my mug to drain for about the same contact time of 3:30 or so.

Thanks folks. I'm going to look at that Hario - it seems perfect for what I want.
