The Clever Dripper is the coffee maker that was created to make manual coffee easy and entertaining. Spoiler alert: it worked. For that reason, it’s one of our favorite pour over brewers; it’s easy to use but still makes a killer cup of pour over coffee. It’s shaped just like a standard pour over brewer, but a valve on the bottom allows you to hold hot water in the brew cone. Because of this, the Clever is considered an immersion-style brewer, meaning you can produce something like French press coffee but without the muddy layer of fine coffee grounds at the bottom of the cup. Clever, indeed.
It is an uncomplicated tool to use and allows anyone to brew coffee with minimal effort.
