Subject: Hario V60 dripper vs normal ceramics cone dripper
 

Need a bit of help in choosing my new dripper. i have been using the normal ceramics cone to brew coffee for a while but i just broke it yesterday.
i have read lots of reviews and seems like lots of ppl are praising the hario v60 as one of the best dripper cone in the market, but i just wondering that whether it really makes a difference in taste comparing to normal ceramics one. i'd be appreciated if you guys could share some exp on hario v60 vs normal dripper.

cheers!

The V60 is more fussy about grind size and pour technique, but I don't think it's necessarily better than a "melitta style" dripper. It sort of depends on how many outlet holes the latter has (I have the two-hole "pro" model made by Bonmac, branded by Counter Culture). I tend to use my Hario in place of a Chemex because it's easier to clean up and the filters fit well, while retaining some separation to allow coffee to escape the sides.

If you have a decent grinder and pouring kettle, there's no reason a V60 wouldn't keep you happy. What's nice about it is that you can fold size 4 filters into a cone, or use the Hario filters, or the Chemex filters, or a cloth, or the KONE, or... you get the idea.

I've been traveling and have now looked at everything out there.  IMO, there's nothing, repeat, nothing better than a simple Melitta cone filter holder.
