To realize this ceramic pour over cone, the designers produced trial productions again and again. At first, it was difficult for ceramic dripper to brew coffee at the same speed of paper filter. So, the designers tried to make as thinner pour over cone as possible. Usually, the porcelain made of porous ceramic is hard to make thin. However, the craftsmen and designers tried to make thinner filter. Their effort make it possible to brew coffee as same speed as paper filter. Japanese craftsmanship never give up the function.

How to brew coffee with Japanese ceramic pour over cone
You may worry about how to brew coffee with ceramic pour over cone only?
The way is simple. First, put a clover coaster on the mug or pot. Second, put a ceramic pour over cone on the clover coaster. Third, put coffee powder in the filter. And, pour hot water into the powder.
Due to the roughness of coffee powder, the filter may clog up. Once the clog up happens, roast the pour over cone by a toaster oven, or the direct flame. The stacked powders become ash and you can brush them off.

Step.1Try abstract tap water
First, let’s try abstracting tap water by this ceramic coffee filter.
How does the smell become? Well, it seems that the unique smell of chlorine reduced than tap water.
How about the taste? The taste becomes a little bit mellower.
One staff’s feeling is not trust worthy enough. So, another staff also tries.
A staff has confidence that “I can distinguish the difference of champagne and sparkling wine.” So, he compares the difference of two glasses of water.
One cup with tap water, and another cup with abstracted water by the ceramic filter.
How is the smell? He says, “this one is the tap water and that one is abstracted water, right?” Yes, he is right. But without telling truth, let him drink two glasses of water.
“Yeah, that water has less miscellaneous taste than this water. So, that water is the abstracted water.” He is right, again.
According to him, he can feel the difference of the taste after drink the water, rather than the moment of drink. The abstracted water by ceramic pour over cone leave a pleasant aftertaste.

Next, try to brew coffee.
Step.2Use medium-grind coffee beans
We roasted and ground coffee beans.
224 porcelain says that too fine coffee powder is easy to clung up the ceramic filter. So, we used medium-grind coffee powder.
We selected Mandheling coffee beans as owner’s favorite.
You can easily compare the difference by your daily drink coffee.

First, pour a little hot water to steam the coffee powder for about 30 seconds.
When the powder swells, pour hot water again from the center. Then, the coffee comes from the ceramic pour over cone.
Indifferent to our anxiety, the dripper does not clog and we can brew a cup of coffee.
So, how is the taste?
The taste of abstracted coffee from the pour over cone leaves good aftertaste like the water. We can feel the good aroma and taste of coffee.
Step.4After use, just wash with water
When you finish using the pour over cone, remove the remaining coffee powder in the filter. Then, wash with water. That’s it!
