A little while ago my dad gave me a small pour over device. Google tells me that it's a Thunder Group (SLCF001). It's small and stainless steel. It's cylindrical, unlike a conical Hario V60, and uses two filters. One of the filters screw into the device and the other is built in. Would anybody know how to make coffee with this (other than <i>just add water!</i>)

Many Thanks,
The Alchemist

From a google search and the web seller,

Brew up to two cups without electricity at a time with this personal Stainless Steel Coffee Filter (SLCF001) from Thunder Group. Simply use by filling the filter with the desired coffee grounds and then pouring hot water over top. Including the filter, inner part and lid, this personal coffee filter is perfect for at home use or anywhere you wish to brew a personal cup of coffee and not an entire pot. End quote

That style of filter used to be popular in Europe, especially in France.  But the were displaced by mokapots in the home, and espresso in cafes.  Nowadays, you see them used for making Vietnamese versions of cafe filtre, especially cafe sua and cafe sua da.

If you're using pre-ground coffee, use Cafe de Beignet.  If you grind your own, use a French roast. Offhand I forget which brands of sweetened, condensed milk are preferred -- but whatever they are, they're not the most expensive.

I have a couple of these filters lying around, although I haven't used them recently. I was introduced to them while traveling in Vietnam 10 years ago, and they're widely used at Vietnamese restaurants in Toronto.

For a time, I used them at work to make a small, concentrated coffee (during my former life as a journalist when I worked ungodly hours and needed a quick and easy jolt). I found it hard to get consistent results -- you need to get a certain flow rate (not too fast, not too slow), which is affected by the grind, how firmly you press/screw down the filter plate, and, of course, the water temperature.

These days I use my Hario Slim and presspot at work. At home, I pull shots or, from time to time, I dust off my moka pot.

Our own Mark Prince wrote a piece on Vietnamese iced coffee using said filter:
