Hello all!

I've become somewhat of a fan of coffee shop pour-over coffee recently, and have dabbled in making it myself, but it's never that good (I can make a mean espresso tho). I'm looking for something that can help me when I make it myself.

I had to look online and found a few coffee makers that look rather good, including this one https://www.techwalla.com/13719153/this ... -your-home, which seems to control all the temperatures and brew times, etc. But, I was wondering if anyone knows of any good pour-over coffee machines, or even just has any general tips for making good pour-over coffee?

Any help will be greatly appreciated! I really just want to make sure that I'm getting the most flavor out of my beans.

Thanks!

That looks to be a cool machine but...$700!

Do you have a grinder, and are you using freshly ROASTED coffee? If not, that is where you should put your investment.

I recently bought this: https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B01 ... UTF8&psc=1

With good coffee, it does a nice job

Beem pour over?

https://www.amazon.de/Beem-BASIC-SELECT ... 07P8T1N7R/

https://www.amazon.co.uk/Beem-Modell-20 ... 07PKQQHSB/

I doesn't have advanced settings like flow rate, pour/wait times etc.
You can adjust temperature, and brew ratio. It does blooming and starts pouring after 30s the whole amount.
Might not be for you if you're after the advanced settings but it's significantly cheaper and might be useful for other 230V 50Hz people. :)

Did you compare Hario smart 7, hiroia Samantha and geesaa?

Edit: beem pour over is quite new i guess. There's not much talk about it even in Germany (beem is a German company)

Sorry - not meaning to hijack... I know you're looking for a pour over, I'm looking for a good dripper - in principle, it's the same :D When I originally started coffeedom, life was much simpler and I could spend a lot of time making all kinds of fancy whatevers - now, with three kids to get out of the door in the morning, on time, that has to wait till the bus has come! I've become my old man.

I bought the bonavita 1900 based on the reviews and SCCA certification. It makes good coffee, with a few caveats: I don't get the wisdom of pouring hot coffee into a cold insulated carafe. I don't like having to preheat the carafe. Also, forget making a full carafe - grounds will overflow. You can only make a 1/2 carafe unless you're making dishwater coffee. The condo we're staying at here at the beach has a Mr. Coffee maker that 'seals' the top of the carafe against the brew head, so it helps not let the heat escape out the top of the carafe, but it also overflows.

I like the idea of a heated carafe, but everyone seems to complain that it scalds their coffee. I'm on the prowl for a dripper that can make a full pot (10c / 50oz +) of coffee at full recommended strength. When I was in Finland visiting family last summer, EVERYBODY there we visited had a technivorm and the coffee was hot and strong, so probably be looking into that route.

I use a 50 oz Melitta dripper (uses #6 filters) and it's slumming a little bit but it works fine. I got mine at a hardware store but you can also order them from melitta.com. IIRC it was under $20 including the carafe.

I really like the Hario Smart 7 for its repeatability and programability in pour volume/duration/numbers, flow rate, and temperature.

The Korean version should work in the UK: https://smart7.jp/index_kr.html

i use a chemex if im not doing espresso drinks.

when i go camping or travelling, i take my Hario V60

i had a plastic see through hario at the office, but i prefer the ceramic. just not a fan of plastic mostly.

downside to a solid dripper is you cant see inside the mug unless its a glass mug. some types have a window at the base however.

99x/100 i use paper filters. it feels wasteful to be honest. i do have a kone filter for my chemex but i prefer the brighter cleaner drips produced using a paper filter.
