The pour over promises excellent, rich taste and robust aroma while maintaining the natural oils of the ground Coffee. For the perfect cup of Coffee, simply fill the cone-shaped filter with freshly ground Coffee and pour a small amount of heated water over them until soaked. Slowly pour the remaining hot water into the filter.
Coffee will drip into the mouth-blown, borosilicate glass carafe and, in 3-4 minutes, will be ready to serve. Remove the filter from the carafe before serving and enjoy!

Solid 4 stars, don’t give that out lightly. For the price it is pretty great.This carafe works well for what it is, I got the cork, single walled version and it is solid. Aside from a couple of weird quirks (it doesn’t pour as well as a chemex and the included filter is worthless), this is a solid buy. You should be making your coffee w/ a paper filter (#4 fits best) anyway so don’t worry about the mesh filter.Here’s how to use this product best:1) Use number 4 filters and ditch the mesh filter.2) Grind your coffee midway between coarse and fine. French press is too coarse, V60 style grind is probably perfect. (You’re shooting for a 4 minute brew, although that also depends on technique, so tune for that).3) Ignore the ‘internal-cap’ that is included, it doesn’t really add any value to the product.4) Pour your coffee on the OPPOSITE side of the spout. I can’t stress this enough. You’ll find that if you try to use the ‘nozzle’ in the glass, that the coffee doesn’t pour well and sometimes leaks down the outside. Instead, if you pour from the ‘back’ of the carafe it works perfectly.5) Enjoy your coffee.

My wife and I have used almost every coffee and espresso making method under the sun and Bodum’s Double-Wall Pour Over is by far our favorite for “regular” coffee. Non-paper filters like a french press taste amazing but often leave a bit of grit in the cup. Chemex arguably tastes even better without the extra grit, but they are expensive, require special paper filters, and don’t keep 2nd and 3rd cups of coffee warm for you. Enter Bodum’s double-wall pour over. It costs about the same as a Chemex, but the double-wall keeps your extra cups of coffee hot for MUCH longer. I know what you are thinking: “Doesn’t it use a metal filter instead of the paper one?” Ah, yes, but here is a secret: you can use a regular, conical paper filter (like Melitta #4, which you can find inexpensively in almost any grocery store) inside the metal filter and coffee is identical to that made in a Chemex. Seriously, you cannot tell a difference. Plus, if you happen to run out of paper filters, you can always just use the metal filter by itself.Additional tips:-If you are going to drink all the coffee immediately after it’s made, you can get the single-walled Bodums for $20ish that taste the same.-When you put your conical paper filter in the metal filter, rinse it out with water prior to putting coffee in it to wash out the slight paper taste and help the paper filter cling to the side of the metal filter.

I picked this up on a whim, having never tried pour over coffee. After my first cup, I was hooked! Literally having used my old faithful Mr. Coffee a single time since receiving this! It’s too dang easy and delicious. Prep? A breeze. Clean up? Stupid simple. Taste? Remarkable.I haven’t jumped on the electric kettle game yet, but I still have an old whistling tea kettle that boils water with the best of them. I simple boil my water, grind some beans (I like 1 scoop per 5 oz filtered water) while the water comes to a boil, and then pour it over nice and slow. No need to use a paper filter unless you just really want to. Clean up with mesh filter consists of knocking it upside down on trash can once, then quick rinse under hot water.I went with the 1 liter size and it makes enough for me and my wife to have a cup and a half each.If you havent tried this before, do it….now.If this review was helpful, please let me know by clicking below!

I know that this is probably one of the trendiest ways to make coffee nowadays.But truth be told, when I was a little girl my father had a very similar coffee maker. that he would set up first thing in the morning and after dinner.I loved the ritual of watching him make coffee the pour over way. When April came and I was looking for birthday gift ideas, I wanted something that I would get use out of, and that was not very expensive . So I thought about my coffee habit. I do not drink a lot of coffee, but I love coffee .From my keurig, French press, regular drip maker, etc. I thought this would be a good addition to my coffee family. There is a much pricier, well-known brand, very similar in look, and style, to this one. Until I knew what I wanted I was not willing to invest, just yet. I chose this one because of the price, and the look, and the reviews.Now that I have had it for a few months, I don’t see any reason to get anything else. It’s easy to clean, for me.One thing to keep in mind, is to rinse it immediately after you’re done using it.I like that the cork is 100% removable to make cleaning a breeze A little bit of hot water, white vinegar, and a soft brush , and it’s as good as new. This item comes with a measuring spoon, and a reusable filter, which I appreciated. I tried the paper filters that came with this package -just to see if there was a difference in taste/quality, and quite honestly my guests and I did not notice a difference, to justify using only paper filters.But then again, I am a newbie to this game,So, I might be missing some slight nuances of flavor, or coloring, or what have you. Overall, this pour over maker is a thorough complete package. If you are on the fence about switching over to the “pour over life“ , looking for a pour over maker of your very own, a gift, etc., I don’t see how you could go wrong with this specific item.
I bought this because my Chemex (2 cup, their smallest and about the same capacity as this) broke after a little slip while washing it in the sink.I had found that the Chemex was, despite its nice wood ‘neck’ piece, quite awkward to hold without touching the very hot glass. So I thought I’d give the Bodum a try, and I’m so happy I did.The metal mesh filter is so easy to use and cleanThe cork neck (with leather tassle) is very ergonomic and comfortableIt makes a great cup of coffee*It is very attractiveEnvironmentally friendly (no filters to throw out… and use the grinds for composting)*Note: It is really only good for one person or maybe two if you use really small mugs.Hope this helps!
