FELLING TREES, TRANSPORTING PAPER ACROSS THE WORLD? IT’S MADNESS. THE SOLUTION: The COFFEE DRIBBLER
Brewing filter coffee by hand is anything but complicated. Today, we get excellent permanent filters: you can easily do without filter paper. The paper filter was “invented” by an old lady, Melitta, who folded blotting paper to make her coffee in the post-war years. The old-timers will remember blotting paper and the school fountain pen. Do you also remember the smell? Even today, paper filters have a certain taste. Our tip: Just save. Get ride of it and don’t replace it. At coffee tastings with specialists, the results were clear. The COFFEE DRIBBLER has a perfectly designed filter for making the perfect filter coffee. It is very robust and easy to clean.
There are even coffee competitions in which a large percentage of the paper filters come from America or Japan. This is just as absurd as offering Italian mineral water in Australia. We can’t change the world in big steps, it’s the little things that count. We all know the ecological problems caused by plastic bags, cotton buds and plastic bottles. If 50 million Europeans use one paper filter less per day, then... bye-bye to all those with a nostalgic love of American and Japanese paper filters.
The Coffee Dribbler is a pointed filter with a very finely made quality sieve. Due to the spacers on the side, it fits on any kind of receptacle. You can also filter directly into a thermos flask, for example, or make just a single cup of coffee. A suitable filter stand is available if you want to make the coffee on the cups.
The “over-all filter” is simple and effective. The Coffee Dribbler is not only perfect for making coffee when you’re at office or at home, but also when you’re travelling. It is very sturdy and light; you can definitely find a little space for it in your luggage.
HOW TO USE THE COFFEE DRIBBLER
- The Coffee Dribbler is to be used without paper and can be used on vacuum flasks, jugs or cups any time indoors and outdoors.
- You can filter the coffee directly into your favourite pot. The opening only has to be about 6 cm wide. The coffee doesn’t run out from the side. The water will find its way down through the coffee grounds through the filter tip.
- You can brew between 1 and 8 cups of coffee. For a few cups, you will need more coffee. For 8 cups, we recommend 60g, for 1 cup, about 18g of medium-coarse ground coffee.
- The Coffee Dribbler can be cleaned by hand or in the dishwasher. After a while, the sieve gets blocked by the coffee oils, which is why you should clean the filter after about 6-8 times of using it using detergent or in the dishwasher.
- The filter is made entirely of stainless steel and has a ring to hang it up. You can use your own leather or cloth strap to hang it up.
- The Coffee Dribbler goes perfectly with the glass jugs from Masato Yamamoto’s Y line. These are available in different sizes and shapes — we also like the double-walled glass carafes for keeping the coffee warm.
- When you’re travelling, you can use the Coffee Dribbler on a vacuum flask too.
- The holder (accessory) for the Coffee Dribbler is ideal for brewing directly into a cup. Because without this filter stand, you can’t see exactly when the cup is full. This also goes for other pots, e.g. those made of porcelain. The filter stand is also practical for placing the Coffee Dribbler down after pouring the coffee.
