Heavy enough to believe this is a precious gem and you'd be forgiven for thinking it was as it temptingly twinkles at you, drawing you into its hypnotic beauty. A V-dripper with a difference; a sparkly crystal appearance that not only impresses aesthetically but will really improve your brew.
Previously made with lime glass this new version is thicker and heavier as it's made with optical glass.
The layers in the structure aren't just good to look at, they also have a purpose, they ensure that the water runs at different pouring speeds.
It's designed with a concave principle, the lower area of the dripper, instead of slowing down the brew actually increases, making the water flow more smoothly and the extraction more uniform.
There are 3 levels in the design:
1 - Insulating level - the filter paper completely attached to the smooth top part of the dripper so water cannot get through.
2 - Brewing level - where the brewing action should take place.
3 - Powder level - the ground coffee will fill the bottom area which is less ribbed and more flume to encourage the water flow and thus reducing the chance of over extracting.
Capacity: 2-4 cups
Available in plastic as V02/V60 or handmade glass in V01 or V02. The drippers come with a starter pack of 10 filter papers.
When launched the "ring" was not included. The V02 version comes now with a metal ring which is removable.
