Clever Coffee Dripper
We are kind of ga ga over this simple device; and it is great for travel! You get full flavor extraction every time and good body. This design features more durable plastic, and is easy to disassemble for cleaning.
So why we love it:
Like all filtercone brewing methods, you directly control the temperature of the water, ratio of water and coffee and infusion time.the Clever Coffee Dripper combines the best features of French press and filter drip brewing, eliminating the drawbacks of each. With French press brewing, you have control over steeping time, but heat loss and sediment in the cup can be a problem. Brewing with a paper filter is easy and convenient; the problem is lack of control over steeping time (i.e. the coffee begins to drain immediately). By adding a stopper to the filtercone, the Clever Coffee Dripper combines control over steeping time with a sediment-free cup. We call this a "full immersion brewing" method. We are selling the large Clever only. (The small is just not helpful) The large is the original size, and it takes a #4 filter. This updated model of the Clever Drippers feature unbreakable, BPA-fee plastic and are now easier to clean. The dripper will fit on cups and thermoses with tops wider than 1.5" and less than 3.75" in diameter.
They differ from most pour-over or filter coffee makers in that the coffee will remain infusing in the top section until you put it on your cup. This opens the "clever" valve and allows the coffee to drip through.
