I have definite coffee nuts in my home. They definitely prefer fresh brewed too. Unfortunately, it’s not always easy to get that, and especially if you travel and work. We have and use a pour over coffee drip, on occasion. So, I know what I’m looking at. This particular product from Cucina Tools is a pretty stable product to use. This one in particular, is a 2 cup drip. They do also have it available in a 4 cup, if that’s what you need. This one is made out of 18/8 stainless steel, and the quality of construction is pretty sturdy. It’s thicker than the one I already have and use, so I am impressed with that. I love stainless in the kitchen. It is the material of choice of professional kitchens. It is durable, and easy to clean. It does not naturally harbor bacteria, fungus, or mold. And in case you are not used to dealing with stainless. It won’t alter the flavor of your coffee at all. You also don’t have to worry about chemicals leaching into your coffee with stainless. To use this coffee drip, you will need a stable mug to rest this on. You will also have to have access to hot water. For example, a microwave or hot water dispenser. After you get your mug ready, and place the coffee drip on top of it, add your coffee grounds to the drip. Then, slowly pour your hot water into the drip. It won’t all fit at one time, since it has to move slowly through your coffee. Even though metal picks up the temperature it’s introduced too, they have a silicone cover on the handle, so it’s safe and easy to remove the drip when it’s finished. Then, just knock the grounds into the trash, or compost bin. Wash it, and you’re done. It only takes a couple minutes for the coffee to be ready. If you grind your own grounds, do a coarser ground. The holes are real tiny, and you don’t have a large risk of grounds making their way into your coffee anyhow, though. It has a double layer of ultra-fine, stainless steel mesh. It really lets the flavor of the coffee be the show. Your cup of coffee will be more favorable then a regular coffee machine. But then, I do grind my own coffee too. The one con this coffee drip has going for it, is also a benefit. The silicone ring around the base that rests on your mug, comes off easily when washing it. That is the negative. It is really, really hard to get back on. The base is circular, so it wants to constantly pop off, as you are working it back on. But, it really allows for a stable position of the coffee drip, which is really important. They need to tweak the design a little. Overall, it’s a great working coffee drip. It’s durable, and makes a great cup of Joe.
