- TOP QUALITY Our fine mesh stainless steel coffee filter is made of the highest quality stainless steel without using paper filters; the bottom base will stay on and not break; the extra-fine wire mesh at the lower part of the filter ensures no grounds end up in your cup.
- SIMPLE TO USE Simply heat the pour-over coffee filter with hot water and rinse out, add coffee grounds, slowly pour in the hot water, let the coffee maker drip out the water through the fine pour-over filter, and remove the coffee dripper when done, ready to enjoy your drink.
- WIDE CUP STAND A wide metal cup stand makes our over coffee filter strong, stable, and safe to use while you pour the water; It's sized to sit over most single cup mugs and smaller travel canteens.
- PORTABLE Compact and lightweight, the coffee dripper works great at home or work or while traveling or camping.
- EASY TO CLEAN You can easily clean our coffee filter, just rinse and wipe it dry or place it inside your dishwasher, and small brush is a gift for you.
I do not like this. It takes too long to make a cup of coffee. I did exactly what the instructions said. At first the coffee dripped fairly fast, but at the last it was slow. It was a mess to clean up. I doubt if I use it much. I have one I use a filter with. I don’t have a problem with it. Just thought if I got this one I wouldn’t need a filter.UPDATE. I don’t like it to make a cup of coffee, but i am running low on coffee filters, so i decided pop the bottom off this and use it as a coffee filter. It worked great, i made 12 cups in my coffee maker to be sure it wouldn’t overflow. I will be using it now in place of paper coffee filters. Changed my rating to 5.
Your browser does not support HTML5 video. I bought this mainly just to have a back up in case I ran out of paper filters. Now, a month after its arrival it is the only thing I find myself making coffee with. I have been using a Melita with the cone filters quite happily for years now and switch it up with a French press or cold brew here and there. I would have never guessed how radical of a difference this filterless pour over would make to the flavor of the coffee but it is absolutely night and day compared with using a paper filter. The paper filters make a very smooth coffee but seems to dull the profile considerably. Without a filter, the flavor profile has opened up and is considerably more bold and complex.I’m not kidding when I say that the paper filters are now the back up for this one.I absolutely love this thing and would give it my highest recommendation. In fact, I will be ordering more so that I have back ups in case anything ever happens to it. As a bonus it is an absolutely beautiful little piece of stainless steel design.For reference, I am using a custom blend that I have roasted for me by a local shop and I grind the beans very finely (a couple steps more coarse than an espresso grind). I fill the cone to within about 3/4” of the rim and use about 3 1/2 cups of water for the extraction for a fairly strong 20 oz. cup.Downsides:-there will be some sediment at the bottom of the cup. Watch those last couple sips.-Depending on your grind, the extraction can be slow enough that you might lose some temperature by the time it is done. I solved the issue by grinding the beans slightly more coarsely. If you don’t grind your own beans (using a burr grinder) this is probably not a good method to use. It will likely still be noticeably slower than a paper filter Melita.-it is nowhere near as convenient as using a filter for cleanup. You will have to dump the grinds and then rinse it well. I then give it a quick once-over with the nylon bristle brush that is included and have not had any issues with clogging or buildup.Like I said before, I had very little expectations for this so it is a pleasant surprise that it has become my go-to.
Got my filter yesterday afternoon and used it this morning. I found the flow of coffee through the filter to be just fine using Peet's ground French roast. The minimal amount of sludge at the bottom didn't bother me at all, because the flavor of the coffee itself was sooo much better than from the auto drip pot I've been using. The filter cleaned very well with just some water and a brief scrub. For those of you without a garbage disposal, use a silicone spatula (or even a knife like my friend does) to scrape most of the grounds into the trash, then rinse. Very happy with this purchase!
I just bought this as an experiment for work coffee. I was tired of using the Keurig with my own coffee grounds and having a subpar brewing experience. As I sit here writing this, I sip on one of the best cups of coffee I've ever made for myself. Huge flavor and hardly anything to clean up. The filter can be tapped lightly against the side of a trash can to get most of the debris out and then rinsed to finish the job. It's quite thin, so it could be considered fragile. Proper care of this should prevent any damage while cleaning it.The thing that you need to consider is what you use to pour your water in. I just used a paper cup that I heated in the microwave to bring to boiling. I would recommend a gooseneck kettle or even a measuring cup with a spout. (but the kettle would definitely be best)
I switched my electric tea kettle to food grade stainless steel and bought this cone at the same time (both from ). I spent a surprisingly long time researching both kettle and cone after deciding plastics were no longer to be part of my daily coffee ritual . The plastic nanoparticle release thing is a big concern. I really was surprised that my first cup of coffee tasted qualitatively better. I am a real coffee lover and hate a mediocre cup. I never buy cheap coffee grounds and started to wonder about my coffee making methods. So far, so good. The cone rests on its base via several click-in spots so I position it by holding the upper rim rather than the mesh sides. I hope it continues to be a snug snap-in fit but coming apart as it does makes cleaning it thoroughly easy and it only gets a few uses a day so I am not worried.
