We often write about our quest for the perfect cup of coffee. We have tried cold brew, stove top, espresso machines, and good old fashion drip. In our house, a new gizmo has found its way into our kitchen, a pour-coffee maker that has been getting some attention in the press. We chose the Hario Woodneck Coffee Drip Pot. Enthusiasts claim that by slowing pouring extremely hot water you create a smoother cup than one that is done by drip makers, which don’t reach boiling temperature. My husband, who cares more deeply about his coffee than I do, says it does taste better. The down side is that it only makes two-mugs worth — and if you don’t drink it right away it cools down fast. The good news is less waste — Hario comes with a reusable filter — and at about $50 it’s not too expensive. It’s also a rather lovely design and the wooden neck makes it easy to pour.
