OXO BREW Pour Over Coffee Maker is a new concept to pour-over coffee brewing, by designing a water tank that you fill all at once which then precisely drips onto the coffee grounds in the dripper below. If you love pour-over coffee, but sometimes don’t have time to sit and pour water in stages over several minutes, then this is a great solution. It replaces the need to invest in a typical coffee brewing machine, or worse, a pod system. We have been trying it out for a couple weeks, and so far, very satisfied. The materials are durable high-quality plastic. And an easy to learn method makes the OXO BREW a snap to master.
The brewer takes the Melitta type #2 paper filter, but it is ok to use the #4’s as well.
If you already have a ceramic cone, filters, goose-neck kettle and your coffee is still not what you expect, maybe it’s time to bite the bullet and purchase a conical burr coffee grinder. Pour-over coffee brewing is a simple, relatively economical way to get the best cup of coffee. You could buy a super fancy drip brewer or even an espresso machine, but it would be silly to fork out that kind of cash when all you really want is good tasting coffee.
Prefect pour-over coffee is a lot about the grind
Improperly ground coffee can result in unsatisfactory results. If the grounds are too course, the flavors will not release and the brewed coffee will be watery and bland tasting. If the grind is too fine, the coffee will taste bitter. Check out this guide for the different grinds.
Blade grinders, while they work in a pinch, unevenly grind the coffee, resulting in inconsistent flavors.
