Default fascinated with this

I receive a little pamphlet through our local Krogers grocery store called Private Selection. The latest featured a pour over coffee carafe and filters. The carafe is glass with a wood top and the filter is pottery.

This is absolutely beautiful. I have never used a pour over coffee maker and this looks more like a piece of art. I am just starting to look around for something like this, even using the contact us form on privateselection.com

Does anyone use the pour over coffee makers? Something new to me and I think it is so pleasing to the eye.

This would work for me since I am the only coffee drinker here and only drink a cup in the a.m.

Kind of in this vein but the carafe is glass, but you can get the general idea.

I make my coffee like that all the time. My container is not ceramic but I love my coffee made this way with fine grind espresso. I like my coffee strong.

Thanks for the input....I found one very similar on Amazon and am thinking it over...it is pricey when I add a few little accessory items.

Melitta makes a plastic one, not as pretty, and I make my coffee in the am with the hot water dispenser installed under the sink. I use #2 filter cones.https://www.walmart.com/ip/21777801?...&wl13=&veh=sem

I saw that one, and thought it might be a good way for me to try it out first.

Good idea. they all work the same way, but some are prettier than others. I am a "dropper" so know anything ceramic wouldn't last long with me!!

My single cup drip pot uses the same idea - the difference is it heats the water for me. It's the only coffee I like - even larger drip pots don't make a product i like.

This is the one I used decades ago when I only had time for a cup or 2 in the AM. Now I do a 1/2 pot each AM. But it was great coffee made this way. If you only do 1 cup for yourself, this would be my answer. I had friends that had the pot with the wood top (again, decades ago) and it was delish coffee.

I got one similar to that about 20 years ago. I use it when I only want one cup or when my electric pot is out. The top of mine is plastic and it fits over most of my cups so I can choose which or what kind of cup I want. I don't like plastic cups to drink out of. Mine takes a #2 cone filter or a #4 if I can't find a 2. I cut the top of the cone down a bit so it fits - or just leave it since I am doing only a cup.They are nice. I also have a small electric drip Mr Coffee that says it holds 4 cups but the cups are small so when my hubby makes me coffee every morning, the pot says there is 2.5 cups of coffee - which just fills a regular coffee cup. I would never get rid of my single cup kind.
