Which is why I like the Clever Dripper. Plop the water straight out of the Zojirushi dispenser, while stirring. Cover. After 90 seconds, stir again and cover. After 4 minutes, release into my mug. Toss the filter into the trash and rinse out the Clever.

Are you using the 195 degree or 208 degree setting? I've only used mine for Aeropresses at 195 degrees, or for Americanos and the 175 degree setting.

Good point about the Clever, Marshall. Despite its rise in popularity and ability to produce a consistent cup however, I would not consider it a true representative of flow-through extraction, given its hybrid nature (arguably it leans towards the immersion side of things).

If I want to make an immersion brew at home, I always gravitate towards my 2-cup syphon.

I don't own a Clever, but have been to a few reputable shops that offer it with solid results. I would definitely consider purchasing one if they made it in glass or stainless.
