Looked at these for a gift,but after reading Amazon reviews,decided on a different type.Don't think DD & SIL have the patience needed.
I like them,but not a coffee drinker.Hope you found yours.

Not yet..I think it would work for me since I enjoy a good cup of coffee. Even started grinding the beans for awhile.

There is not really a difference between drip and pour over other than mostly "drip" refers to an automated system like an electric coffee maker and "pour over" usually refers to a manual system. In my experience, the time is about the same except you can just walk away from a machine an do something else. BUT the coffee is better with a manual system.

I ended up buying the Melitta pour over coffee cone just to test it out and see how much I liked it.

My first day I made the coffee way too weak. Today I added what I normally would have added to the electric pot, and it is much better. Probably can go a little stronger. What I miss is the smell of coffee the electric pot made...I don't have a clue if this is just the way it is, or I need to tweak what I am doing.

I don't think it is too much of an effort to use though...just different. And the cone takes up so much less space than my Mr. Coffee.

You will get a stronger brew if you give the ground coffee a stir while pouring the hot water over to saturate the ground coffee. I think it tastes better because the water is hotter than what comes out of a drip coffee maker. I like my coffee hot.

Do you use ground coffee or grind your own? I really like the Peets coffee but is a bit pricey unless on sale.

I buy locally roasted coffee, French Roast (about $10.00#), if you like a dark brew, that they sell in bulk at my local coop. I grind it in the store but I'm sure it would be better to grind it at home. I just don't want to be bothered. Grind it fine but not to a powder that would clog the filter. Buying in smaller quantities keeps it fresh tasting also.
