So, I’ve replaced my broken Clever Coffee Dripper with a Ceramic Pour Over and a French Press. So, now its time for a showdown! Which is better?
This isn’t my first Ceramic Pour Over, I had a more expensive one before that broke. But this cheap one tastes exactly the same. I guess ceramic is ceramic. What I love about Pour Over is that it really extracts the tastes of the beans. It makes a nice strong cup with lots of flavor. It does smooth out some of the flavor though as well, you may feel like some of the coffee’s stronger notes are missing.
For the most full-bodied, robust, and strong coffee you can’t beat a French Press. Stronger than the Pour Over and it does not smooth out the flavor, you’re getting all the notes – good and bad. You may also get a little bit of coffee grind in your cup, but it’ll match the flavor anyway.
So, what’s the winner? There’s no clear favorite for me, it really depends on the beans and what I’m in the mood for.
