For filter coffee lovers there is no need to talk about it: pour-over is by far the preferred method of dealing with specialty coffees, to enhance their characteristics, quality, variety. Chemex and Hario's V60 are the most popular and tested methods, but there are many others, each with a few small variations to emphasize this or that aspect of the extraction.
ROK too wanted to have its say about pour-over with this W1 Filter (Dripper). W because the novelty consists in the fact that the paper filter - a standard V60 paper filter will work - forms into a W shape in order to fit into the ROK cone, with the tip pointing upwards. Or a reversed M, if you prefer :)
The idea is that, thanks to this shape, the water will percolate through the coffee in a more homogeneous, regular and distributed way than if coming out of a single point of the conical filter, as happens with other methods.
But does it actually work? There's only one way to find out: make yourself a nice filter coffee (it goes without saying that you should use The Smoking Tiger coffees) using the two different methods, and see what happens. And please do let us know what you think about it in the product reviews below. Thank you!
What if the products you get are not how you expected them to be? What if you don't like that coffee that was supposed to be so good? And if you suddently turn to veganism the day after purchasing a Ciauscolo salame?
