My everday workhorse; delivers a consistently great cup of coffee.
Positive Product Points
Makes great coffee. I like the design (except for the cheap looking base.) Glass has a heavy, quality feel to it. I like the screw-tightened fasteners for the lower globe.
Negative Product Points
I don't care for the cloth filter. I use my Cona glass rod in order to keep my coffee from contacting metal and cloth.
The base has a cheap look to it.
The upper vessel can be a struggle to remove due to the thick and unyielding rubber ring.
I love my Hario Super Techinca. It's my everyday workhorse. I'm the only coffee drinker in my house so the 5 cupper is a perfect size for 2 real manly mugs. Not as nicely designed as my Cona but delivers consistently great coffee.
It's more flexible than my Cona. Hario doesn't seem to suffer from using a less than full capacity amount like my Cona D. This is due to the design. The Hario is round and leaves only the smallest amount of coffee south during the infusion process.
Again, my only complaints are the fact that the upper vessel can be a struggle to remove due to the inflexible, thick rubber and the base looks a little cheesey.
I snagged this baby from ebay for $48.00 bucks brand spanking new in the box! I probably wouldn't have purchased it if I had to pay full price.
