There are hundreds of ways to brew delicious coffee and many of us have developed our favorites. I'm a huge fan of the Aeropress, and when I need to make more than one cup at a time, I brew with the Chemex. I've perfected the craft with those two devices, and love every single cup I get out of them.
I may have a new favorite though, in the form of the Hario Drip Pot. While it may be Chemex-like in appearance, the flavor profile is distinctly Hario. It features a cloth filter, unlike the paper filters that are commonly used in coffee makers, and this gives the coffee a full and bold but incredibly smooth flavor. I find it to be almost cold-brew-like in smoothness, and with excellent fresh ground beans, it's truly delicious.
After brewing, the filter can be rinsed out in the sink and should be stored damp, in a plastic bag, in the refrigerator. This prevents any mold or mildew from developing, and keeps things fresh for your next brew.
This is not the easiest brewer to use, but it's far from the most complicated, and the resulting cup is some of the best. Not to mention it looks great on your countertop, and you will almost certainly gain coffee credibility with your friends when you brew with it.
