The Small Clever is so simple and greatly improves the quality of the coffee you brew. You get full flavor extraction and good body. It differs from a normal filtercone by way of a stopper added to the bottom: water only drains once the filtercone is placed onto a cup. This design features more durable plastic, and is easy to disassemble for cleaning.
The Clever Coffee Dripper combines the best features of French press and filter drip brewing. With French press brewing, you have control over steeping time, but heat loss and sediment in the cup can be a problem. Brewing with a paper filter is easy and convenient; the problem is lack of control over steeping time (i.e. the coffee begins to drain immediately). The stopper on the bottom of the Clever Coffee Dripper allows control over steeping time with a sediment-free cup. We call this a "full immersion brewing" method.
Like all filtercone brewing methods, you directly control the temperature of the water, ratio of water and coffee and infusion time.
One box of #2 Filtropa filters included. #2 filters will stick up a little higher than the dripper's rim. A #1 filter would sit about a 1/4" below the rim which could allow for grinds in your cup if you over fill. The dripper will fit on cups and thermoses with tops wider than 1.5" and less than 3.75" in diameter. It's BPA-free but not dishwasher or microwave safe.The included lid doesn't make a perfect fit around the rim due to the the handle being flush with the rim, but if you are using a filter that sticks above the rim a bit, you may not even notice.
This brewer holds a total of 11 fluid oz. but when allowing room for the ground coffee, you will only be able to pour in about 10.6 fluid oz of water, yielding a 10 fluid oz cup of brewed coffee. We feel this smaller Clever dripper brews the perfect amount for one person or 2 people who like to drink smaller amounts.
