Mr. Clever Pour-over Dripper and Coffee Sock Combo
Tired of constantly buying #4 filters? Sick of throwing them away? Using soft, organic cotton, this #4 size filter is hand-sewn in the USA. It fits on any #4 size cone (including the Clever Dripper). We love the difference this filter makes. Not only are you reusing your filter, you're also creating a totally different flavour profile than you would get with paper or metal filters. Cloth filters allow more oils through, and therefore give you more body - without sacrificing complexity. This product is paired with the Clever Dripper
The Clever Coffee Dripper! A fool-proof and inexpensive full-immersion method of brewing coffee, this little gem is as familiar as a drip machine - it uses Melita #4 filters - and is as simple to use as a French press. I am really excited about this little filtercone; I think it greatly improves the quality of the coffee you brew. And it is so simple! You get full flavor extraction every time and good body.
The resulting coffee retains much of the delicious body of a French Press, but does away with the sediment. In essence, the Clever Coffee Dripper combines the best features of French Press and filter drip brewing, eliminating the drawbacks of each. The steep-and-release mechanism means that you can accurately control the brewing, and extract the coffee directly into your mug with no mess.
Brewing with a paper filter is easy and convenient; the problem is the lack of control over steeping time (i.e. the coffee begins to drain immediately) and water temperature. By adding a stopper to the filtercone, the Clever Coffee Dripper combines control over steeping time and water temperature control with a sediment-free cup. We call this a "full immersion brewing" method. And at this price, it’s about one of the best value brewers you can find.
This is our method, but it certainly isn’t the only one, so have a look online and play around to find what you like best. Like all filtercone brewing methods, you directly control the temperature of the water, ratio of water and coffee and infusion time.
