The Clever Dripper by abide is an innovation in classic cone-filtered coffee brewing. Until now, the only way to control how long your coffee took to brew was to either pour very slowly and deliberately, or to use a very specific grind. The Clever dripper sidesteps this entirely. It uses a patented mechanism that stoppers the dripper cone until it is placed on your cup. This has the additional advantage of allowing for "Full Immersion" brewing, where all of the coffee is in contact with all of the water for the entire time, not unlike a french press. However, becasue the Clever Dripper uses a paper coffee filter, it is a completely clean cup totally free of sediment.
To brew with a clever dripper, first insert the #2 cone filter. With the dripper sitting on the counter, fill the cone with boiling water. Place the dripper onto your cup and allow the water to run through. This step both rinses the filter, reducing the paper flavor they can impart, as well as preheating both the brewer and your cup. Next, with the clever dripper back on the counter, add the ground coffee (we recommend 16-18 grams) and hot water to just below completely full. Place the lid on the dripper and start a timer. At the three-minute mark, place the Clever Dripper onto your cup and allow the coffee to filter through. This should take about 30-45 seconds, any longer and the grind was too fine, much faster the grind too coarse. Remove the cone from the cup and place on the counter using the lid as a coaster to catch the last dribble. Enjoy!
