1. Decent filter but lets a good bit of fines through
2. Plastic plus hot water could possibly pose a health risk
3. Cleanup is simple, just rinse after brewing and soap wash every few days
4. Not as good as the Grosche, but WAY cheaper - only you can decide if it's worth the higher price
This product used to be part of my daily routine, but I have since found something better, Grosche Ultra Mesh Ultra Fine Pour-Over Micro Filter Over Coffee Dripper . See my review of the Grosche filter for more details about that one. Back to this Hario filter. I initially bought this one because for less than $20, I could ditch the paper filters and get a better tasting cup of coffee. Going in, I knew I would get fines in my cup, and I was OK with that, for a while, then it got old. Then my coworker started scaring me about plastics leaking harmful chemicals into my food and drink, made worse with the scalding hot water I brew my coffee with. Once I found the Grosche, this Hario hasn't been in use since. Illustration of difference in filter attached
To brew pour over coffee you put your ground coffee (to the measuring point for amount you want) in the pour over cone and heat your water,
put pour over cone on top of carafe or other coffee receptacle
pour a little water over the ground coffee (starting in the middle and working your way outward) in a spiral, until all of the coffee has "bloomed" up and gotten gotten wet.
leave the coffee for 60 seconds.
pour in the rest of your water from the middle-slowly
I freely admit that I am a fully developed coffee snob.
I got this unit because I can't stand the prefab coffee packet sludge that my work offers. The Hario takes a bit more time because you need to "bloom" the grounds, and you need to play around with the grind to get the right balance, but the payoff is a rich, bold cup of coffee. I like my coffee strong, so I grind my beans on my grinder's medium setting and fill the dripper to almost the top of the silver filter. Once the coffee blooms and expands, it covers the entire filter and prevents the water from just dribbling through without brewing. My feeling is if I make it too strong, I can always add water. If I make it too weak, I'm out of luck.
I have found there is the teeniest bit of sediment in the bottom of my cup, but nowhere near as much as I find when I brew in my press.
The unit is easy to clean - dump the spent grounds out and rinse. They say you can put it in the dishwasher, but that seems unnecessary.
Several reviewers mentioned that the unit is flimsy. I haven't found that. The cone locks into the base and is as stable as it needs to be. It comes apart to make cleaning easier.
I was initially concerned that the base wouldn't fit on my monster 20 oz mugs, but it fits just fine. It should be plenty big to fit over most drinking vessels.
I highly recommend this for awesome single-serve coffee. Now they need to manufacture a Hario Mega (c) that you can brew 32 oz of coffee in :)
I've had another one that was made purely of metal, but it broke when I accidentally dropped it on the floor. I bought this one because I thought that the plastic frame would be less likely to break. So far it hasn't. The bottom piece does screw off, which makes it a little easier to clean. When I'm getting the grinds out I usually use a kitchen knife to scrape some of them out and then I shake it into the garbage can or compost bin. I need to remove the bottom before I do that or it usually shakes off and ends up in the waste bin.
I use an electric kettle to boil my water and I find it easiest just to fill my mug with water, pour it in the kettle, add a couple of scoops of grinds to the filter while the water is boiling, and place it on top of my mug, then pour the water slowly making sure to moisten the grounds thoroughly. The water then drips slowly.
It takes me about 3 minutes total, which I find to be a nice and relaxing break. It means my coffee is extremely fresh: even more so if I grind the beans while the water is boiling. I think there is something about the metal filter that makes sure all of the coffee's richness, including the oils, gets into the coffee. So this ends up tasting somewhere between a French press (which I like but it takes a bit longer and produces a little bit more of a mess) and a drip coffee. I have an espresso maker at home so that's what I usually use there, but I keep this in my office and go for this instead of the communal carafe.
