I like it, but I’m also from Seattle;-)

How do you like the coffee from it? I saw a cool show on PBS (I think) where this farmer in Columbia was pouring straight through what looked like a sock, with the same type frame. Real rustic, but also looked really good. Roasted his own beans in a skillet, completely drew you into it, good segment of whatever the show was, I was surfing…...

I use an Illy machine now but am thinking of making the frame like yours and using a cloth filter like Columbian guy.

-- Im so impressed with what people can do, and I wonder how they do it. Thats what keeps me doing it.

Thanks Bill. I really like the pour over coffee when you use a fresh roasted coffee. I was introduced to this method by a local coffee roaster that really does a good job with his bean selection and roasting method in small batches. Always fresh.
The drippers that I use need a #2 filter and with a 1/4 cup of freshly ground beans…1 great cup of coffee. He recommends to bring the water to a boil and then set it off the heat for about 60 seconds. This brings the water to the desired 195-205 degrees.
Enjoy. You likely have a nice selection of beans available to you. How fresh is fresh?...consumed between 10-14 days of roasting, so you might have to find a local roaster that also does small batches.

Have your say...
