This is great for an emergency cup at the office
This is great for an emergency cup at the office. Once you dial in on how much coffee to put in and how long to let it steep, it makes tasty joe. Clean-up is easy, you just dump the filter and rinse it out. It doesn't drip everywhere after using it, and they even give you a coaster if you want to set it down before cleaning.
I personally think that a Chemex makes better coffee. So if you're looking for a pour-over style, I think the Chemex is slightly better and more versatile... But the clever is great as a second coffee maker or for work/the office.

makes great coffee
Works great, just as described. This is the larger one, it makes a full cup of coffee. You can steep the coffee as long as you want, make it just to your taste.and sits on top of your cup to drain directly into the cup. Wish it came with a built in filter like the smaller version. without it there are lots of grounds in the cup. I found it works better with a cone disposable filter. :)

requires some trial and error but resulted in a GREAT CUP OF COFFEE
It took a while to learn how to grind the coffee and time for steeping to produce a great cup of coffee. I usually ground my dark full bodied coffee fairly fine using a burr grinder and dripped it using paper filters. It made a thick, rich cup of coffee reminiscent of Turkish coffee. After some trial and error I now grind the coffee closer to a medium that a fine grind. I still moisten the grinds and let them air out for a minute or two and discard that coffee. I then pour boiling water into the clever coffee dripper and let it steep for 5-6 minutes. I then release it into my cup. It is more flavourful but less thick than the way I used to make coffee. It still has all the flavour and richness but is smooth and delicious. I have recommended it to others who like coffee but not all the fussy clean up or costly equipment.

I had become very frustrated with my french press, and upon hunting for a replacement, I found the Clever Coffee Dripper. It is the perfect solution for me (the only coffee drinker in the house.) It is very affordable, clean up is the easiest, the valve mechanism works perfectly. I am so happy to have finally found a one-cup system that doesn't hurt the environment or affect the taste of the fresh-ground coffee negatively. Try it - I'm so glad I did!

Great coffee maker
This is a great product, I've used this type in the past. This item is made in Taiwan not China .I would recommend this to anybody as a pour-over type. This item holds the water in with the coffee grounds . It steeps it for as long as you need. Then set the whole device on top of a cup. It's strains it right into the cup.

Make coffee like in a french press without the grounds at the bottom. The mechanism is simple and works well. You steep as long as you like, set the dripper on your mug to release the coffee, lift to stop.

This is a simple and incredibly effective device for making drip coffee. For best results, measure your beans and water by weight and use a burr grinder to grind your beans fresh every time. I've been using the Clever dripper to make 1 or 2 cups of coffee and the method is pretty straightforward. I like how easy it is to use and clean up. The coffee brew is strong but very clean, an outcome of the active brewing in the dripper unit, much better than a pour over (less brew time since it passes through) or a french press (more sediment). I highly recommend this.

Best Coffee Dripper
The Clever Coffee Dripper is a game changer. It makes one of the best cups of coffee I have ever made. It makes coffee with the strength and taste of french press, but without the mess and leftover grinds. It's a good quality product and very easy to use. My only (personal) complaint is that I wish they had an XL size, and I wish they had an adapter for larger cups

Excellent single cup coffee maker for strong coffee lovers!
Exactly what I was looking for. Now I can make a single cup of coffee, steep it for as long as I want to make a deeper, richer flavor before I strain it into the mug. Love it!

Works like a charm
On a trip to Seattle stopped by Starbucks Reserve Tasting Room. I needed something non-electric for the office and have used a French Press till it fell a part. Was messy to clean. They suggested using the Clever which uses a #4 filter. Was running out of room in my luggage so waited to buy till I got home. Makes a greet cup of coffee and much easier to clean since you can just toss out the filter. At home I grind right before brewing. For the office I grind enough for the week and store in a small airscape.
