The Clever Dripper

When it comes to brewing, a little patience goes a long way. When making coffee at home, it pays to take the time to grind your coffee fresh, just before brewing.

When brewing coffee thru a pour-over cone (such as a Melitta), making many small pours helps stabilize temperature and create a more even extraction.

One of our favorite brewing methods is the Clever Dripper. Unlike other cones, the Clever is a full-immersion brewer (like a French press), meaning you can control how long the coffee and water interact. This brewer creates a clean, crisp, layered cup, which makes it a great candidate for light roasted, single origin coffees.

Our go-to recipe is 25 grams (or 4 tablespoons) of coffee ground at a drip setting and 12 ounces of water just off the boil. We suggest stirring after the pour, placing the lid on the brewer to hold in the heat, waiting 2 minutes, stirring again, and then draining. The brew takes about 4 minutes, but we find it to be well worth the wait.

Clever Drippers are now on sale at our website for $21.99.

If you’re looking for a low-stress way to consistently brew great coffee at home, the Clever is the way to go. And remember, when you make a purchase of $50 or more, your items ship for free.
