The "Clever" method is too easy for it's own good, and the result is a poor cup of coffee.
Positive Product Points
It's easy. Something quick to brew at home.
Negative Product Points
Your coffee is soaking in a plastic and paper pool of hot water. Your coffee tastes like paper.
A barista, cafe, or coffee shop should serve the best cup of coffee! That being said, The Clever is cheap, easy, and hands-off, but the result is a poor cup of coffee. If you have a beautiful La Marzocco espresso machine, the coffee should stand up to the espresso. Full immersion is a beautiful concept...but unlike the french press you're dealing with a paper filter. Coffee grounds are delicate and can easily take on their environment. I suggest using The Kone, designed by Keith Gehrke. It has the complex flavor of a pourover, and the mouth feel of a french press without the sediment. Coffee should never be an afterthought, and that is what you get with the Clever.
I purchased the Clever in a local coffee shop/roaster. The two experienced baristas and the owner recommended it.
