I purchase the kalita driper, which is similar to melita driper but has three holes in it while melita driper has one hole in it and melita server for my drip coffee. I used to use the coffee maker by Mr.Coffee, still using it when needed, the one from Gevalia, and the coffee maker by Brown. And the differences between the machine and manual one are;
it is more fun to make by manual one. it is actually very fancy and great if you can take 10 minutes for making coffee. And also good for impress the guests when you are having a party.
it is by my tastes produce better, richer and more flavorful coffee than by coffee machine. And usually takes less coffee.
I was very curious about the taste of drip coffee which I have never experienced before making it. I went to the website and directly buy from japaness website, which was cheaper option for me. I bought one driper, paper filters for the driper, the server, and the pot/kettle which can make the water stream very consistantly and fine. The total wasn't so cheap, it was about $110 since the drip pot was made of copper and little bit expensive, but the dripper is one everyone needs when they want to have drip coffee and the driper is kind of cheap, one driper is less than $10. I was thrill to have a cup of coffee when it was arrived but the first one was not as good as I imagined. But it has been better and better after that. and now I am thinking the dripping coffee by manually is the better way if you love richer and flavorful coffee. Try it if you have a chance :) because this is so fun~!
I purchased directly from japaness bander, I am in Korea, and the whole experiences was exellent. The shipping cost was little coasty so this may not proper way to buy drip sets from U.S. But I always love to deal with Japaness people. They know what they are doing for sure!
