Anyone know where I could get the Hario cloth drip pourover not as expensive as at Avenue18?? It would add up to $55 bucks with shipping there! I can't seem to get ANY good results on E-bay. Maybe I just suck at finding things on ebay, but I can never get anything useful to pop up.

When Mark writes that the water should be "just off boil," what does that mean? Just before full boil? Full boil then rest for a bit?

Hi Evan,

Welcome to the Coffeegeek forums! {:-)

Yes the last part of your post, full boil & unplug the kettle., after a few seconds that is 'off of the boil'..

You don't mention bloom.

Using this article is a first-time pour-over brewer, I definitely needed to know that

(1) You don't poor in all the water at once

(2) You wait until the bloom by pouring in a bit, then pour in water two or three more times, the whole process of which takes about a minute (or more, as you prefer - the point is you can help control steep time *by the pace of your pouring*, which is not explicitly mentioned anywhere)

Might want to add these!!! I was letting water go through in 20 seconds, by pouring it all in instantly.

Hi everyone,

Sorry to bump such an old post but does anyone have pictures of how fine or coarse the grind for pour over should be? I'm using a compak K3 touch.

Thank you

Edit: sorry i found a post about the question. SORRY!

So funny, I just bought a Bodum grinder for pour over.

The Antigua is no longer listed on the Bodum site and the Amazon listing shows "ANTIGUA electric coffee grinder was updated in several aspects in 2007," so I can only guess it's out of print; perhaps someone who is in the know can enlighten us.

I bought the Bodum Bistro on Amazon and it's been working well for me. It appears similar in design to the Antigua: it is also a conical burr grinder and has stepless adjustment. The biggest downside is that it has a 20-second (max) timer, and the instructions says to let the machine rest for 5 minutes after the 20-second cycle. This is just enough time for me to grind 40 grams for 4 cups so that's good enough.

Will

Subject: Re: How to Use a Pour Over Brewer
 

I've typically used a bodum chambord french press, but over the past week or so have been getting into pour-over brewing using an inexpensive melitta pour-over cone. I'm thinking about getting a chemex, but am unsure if the cost is worth it. Either way, I want something with a larger capacity, so I may just get a larger melitta cone. Any thoughts on the chemex classic series? I think I much prefer the pour-over method over the french press due to ease of cleaning and no sediment in my cup. However, I do find that this method takes quite a bit more attention than using a press pot (but perhaps well worth it).

Hi Haley, welcome to the CG Forums!

Personally, I believe at $70 (refurb..often a trade show VERY lightly used) or $99 new, the Baratza Maestro is far superior.
Mark's original posting was eons ago. The Bodum would have been, as he stated the minimum grinder for this method.

My final solution that ended all the alternatives was the Melitta ceramic cone (scarce as hen's teeth)  You can find them on the ebay and end up paying at least $25 for them used.  But they are a treasure and hard to find because the owners keep them.  They never take an odor even if left with spent filters for a day.  They can be washed and cleaned to complete satisfaction for next use.

I know its been a couple years, but you can buy them directly from Melitta for about $25 new: https://shop.melitta.com/search.asp?SKW=MACM
