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.

Our brew method:

  • Put Melita #4 filter into basket and rinse through with hot water
  • Put in fresh ground coffee (we use 22 g - ground coarser than filter coffee - to 340 g water)
  • Start timer and pour in 50 g of just-off-the-boil water (195-205º)
  • Swirl water in filter and let bloom for 30 seconds
  • Add rest of water and put the lid on the brewer
  • At 3:30 place on top of a big-enough mug and let it draw down
  • Drink and enjoy
