Hario V60 Cafeor Coffee Dripper

Hario Cafeor Coffee Dripper

The Hario V60 is one of the most popular ways to “hand make” coffee. The V60 features a drip method of making coffee using a paper filter. The traditional design looks like this one from Amazon: http://amzn.to/2DcsOia

This traditional design also requires paper filters like these from Amazon: http://amzn.to/2CGZtLr

Today the V60 coffee dripper is made in every color, size, and material. Hario also makes a single serve version called the Cafeor which uses a stainless steel mesh filter, so no paper filters are required. Because ain’t nobody got time for that. It looks like this: http://amzn.to/2AGAztQ


This is super convenient for when I only want a single cup of coffee. Due to the design and method of coffee extraction, I can have a hot bold cup of coffee in just a couple of minutes. I do admit however, that pushing the Keurig button is a little faster as long as I sacrifice control over the flavor. Heres how you control all the aspects of the flavor:

Making the coffee

First, add your coffee grinds. I like to fresh grind my coffee beans. I aim for the consistency of kosher salt. I use a vintage manual ceramic coffee grinder like the one below, if that is your thing. To be really honest though, my electric Mr. Coffee coffee grinder is way more convenient when no one is around and I’m not being a coffee snob. Vintage manual coffee grinder: http://amzn.to/2D9C8Dp

Place your dripper over your favorite coffee mug and add water. Some recommend in stages. When it finishes draining out. Et Voila! Coffee! If its too light consider a finer grind or higher temperature.
