I’ve been using this simple, convenient brew system at home for more than a year now. it’s made mornings a lot easier (and, frankly, my coffee tastes a lot better). No fuss, no waste, no old stinky coffee to pour out in the afternoon.
The Clever Dripper is the love child of pour over coffee making and French press brewing. With a pour over brewer, hot water is poured over ground coffee that doesn't steep. The water passes through the grounds and drips into a mug waiting below. In a French Press coarsely ground coffee is poured into a glass pitcher then filled with hot water. The coffee steeps more than brews and after five minutes or so it's ready.
The Clever Dripper is the best of both worlds. Like the French press, the grounds steep in the hot water instead of just passing over them like with the pour over. As a result the water absorbs more of the coffee’s rich oils, making a brew that’s both very flavorful and full of body. Like the pour over system the Clever Dripper goes right over your mug and a spring-loaded lever on the bottom releases the brew.
When you're done the grounds go in the trash and, after a simple rinse with water, the Clever Dripper is ready to make more. Great for single coffee drinkers or those of us who make our way to work before the cafes open.
