Bonavita Immersion Dripper
This is our new favourite by-the-cup brewer in the cafe. Why? It combines a rich, full-immersion brew with the clean cup profile of paper filtered brews.
To use it, line the brewer with a standard no. 4 filter, and simply pour in your coffee and water. Shaped like a cone pour-over brewer, the dripper has an open / close switch that keeps the coffee and water immersed for as long as you want. When the brew is extracted to your liking, flip the switch open and drain the finished brew straight into your mug.
The ability to have a full immersion brew allows a very even and controllable extraction, and takes out the variability in pour-over pouring technique that troubles many baristas.
