Hario 480ml Heatproof Glass and Wood Drip Pot Woodneck Pourover Coffee Maker : Elegant and a smooth brew

I’ve been looking at the various options for ‘home brew’ coffee, reading and sampling everything from ceramic drippers to electric espresso machines, and i’ll admit that it was out of curiosity that i really wanted to try the ‘drip pot woodneck’. I was very specific in searching out for a hario (japan) item, as the quality of the item (they’re a glassware specialist) really is first class. I subscribe to the theory that, you get what you pay for (yes, cheaper items can be found, but this really is beautifully made). The ‘kit’ contain the glass drip pot, with the wooden neck (with nice lil’ leather cord), a measuring scoop and the filter (more on that in a minute). Be warned that, instructions are in japanese (kanji), but it’s not as if it’s difficult to work out (from the pictures on the side of the box). If you’re at a complete loss, there are guides available (in english) online. As with all drip pot coffee, your grind will need to be fairly coarse (i experimented with a grind that i’d normally use for a french press), but the results are just lovely, with a clean and smooth cup, with lots of flavours. It will take a little experimentation to get used to, but the simplicity and the results are worth it. This is now the source fo my early morning coffee and is a trusted companion on my desk (with just enough for two cups). The only things to remember is the actual filter. This needs to be kept spotlessly clean and should, ideally, never be allowed to dry out. Once washed through, i keep mine in a zip-bag and pop it in the fridge.

Have only used it a few times but very pleased so far. A bit fiddly to get the hang of at first, and the filter requires some babying, but it does produce a smooth and flavourful cup, even using off-the-shelf ground coffee. I imagine the results would be stunning if using good-quality, freshly ground beans. Only downside is the coffee cools rather quickly, so everything has to be pre-warmed and, once brewed, drunk right away.

Simple to use , reusable cloth filter works beautifully.

Didn’t seem to do much for the coffee. Found the strainer hard to clean.

Maintaining the cloth filter is a necessity. Really enjoying brewing with this item.
