By the way you wrote your post, I assumed you had a Chemex and that was your starting point -- that you just wanted to move away from paper. Maybe I misunderstood. If you have a Chemex, the Bodum filter is just $15 on its own.
Pure drippers? I love my Hario and Bee House ceramics. Here is the link to my review on the Hario. Love it.

I don't have a Chemex, sorry for the way that read. I'm pondering the choices. Maybe I'll trying pouring my press coffee through a gold filter into my cup for a 2nd layer of filtration. I think steeping is key to the process, which none do but the press, the CCD and the Eva Solo. Thanks for the insights.

I know this is an old thread and the OP may be gone but this is an issue I've been investigating for awhile. I have used Melitta filter cones and filters since the 60's. Recently, the whole pour over thing has become trendy almost to the extreme.
After looking at tons of high zoot gear, I've realized the a Melitta cone filter holder, a proper mug (I like Victor Insulator and HLC diner style mugs), whole beans of choice, and a proper grinder that you are not going to get a *better* cup of coffee with a Hario, Chemex, etc.. The Melitta cone is a no brainer that everyone can use to great success. And the best part? They run about $4.
If you want to make more than a cup at a time, there are more alternatives but for about $10 on Amazon, Melitta also makes a larger filter and glass carafe.
Obviously, this is *my* opinion based on my experience and standards.
