Sweet Maria's is about to start carrying the 4 cup porcelain pourover.

Just thought I'd mention it since I've seen its praises sung here before.

That might be worth a try.  Thanks for the link.  I'd be interested to see what users think of it.

I'll vouch for cone brewing.  I'm a big fan.  They are the simplest and cheapest way to brew (nearly) perfect coffee.  I say nearly because my favorite "tool" for brewing single cups is the Aeropress which gives me better control of wet time.  But I also frequently use one of the small ceramic cones that fits a #2 filter and does well for extractions up to about 16 oz.  Then I shift to my larger plastic Melitta cones for #6 filters.  I also use the bigger cones twice each month to make a fast concentrated extraction into one 12 cup pot that dilutes into a gallon of coffee.  Fast.  I go through 7 to 11 gallons of coffee in a morning without a long arsenal of autodrip machines.

IMHO, cones easily beat out any automatic drip on speed and flavor. And unlike the classic French press, filter cones leave no detectable powder in the cup.

Dumb question, but out of curiosity, would a #4 Swiss Gold filter fit in a #4 ceramic cone and would that work as well as a paper filter as far as brew time?

From the link:
"This fits the #4 size paper cone filter or the Swissgold #4 cone filter."

It will work just fine for brew time.

I cone-brew also when I'm traveling and away from my espresso machine.  I typically use the #6 Melitta even if I'm doing just one cup.  I prefer the performance of that one, mainly because of the bigger fins in there.  I posted this link though specifically because I've heard people here praise ceramic filters over the usual plastic offerings due to better performance..I think because of bigger fins that help prevent stalling.

Duh. I didn't see that. Thanks.

I have a Presto Scandinavian and am bracing myself for if it should die on me. I have a Swiss Gold One Cup but like the Swiss Gold #4 in the Presto better. I like the idea of ceramic to keep the water warmer during the brew.
