Used the Hario cloth filter for the first time instead of paper filters. The result: Phenomenally clean taste. Who would want drip coffee after this? I added Almond Milk to taste.
Now, if this has a cleaner taste than French Press, I wonder how the pour-over and Aeropress tastes like? I still like the boldness of French Press, though.

The Chemex was designed in 1941 by chemist/inventor, Peter Schlumbohm and was added to the MoMA’s permanent collection a few years later.

If Bob Dylan used one, then I want one!

In a world full of devices designed to make your life paperless, here is a refreshingly simple addition. The Able Brewing Kone by Coava turns up its stainless steel nose at that box of paper filters on the shelf. Raved about in coffee and tech circles- and almost impossible to find online (link goes to the one place I could find it available)- the Kone melds the convenience of a pour-over with the rich taste of a french press. At $50 it may seem on the pricey side of the brewing world, but the flavors you can coax out of your beans will beg to differ.
This ad almost has it all: a goofy cartoon, vintage Pyrex, a sci-fi looking coffee maker, a delightful PR brochure — Glass and YOU. If only it were in color, so we could see that Pyrex in its true glory.
Circa May, 1953.
I saw one of these babies at Dwell in Eastwood. But they didn’t have that wooden thingy in the middle. I wonder if they were in the box, just not displayed? I would have bought one but held back cause I might be able to get one cheaper from the US. Plus they didn’t have the matching pourover stainless steel pot.
