Can We Help You Find The Right Keurig For You?
I need help finding the best model for my use.
No, thanks. I prefer to browse all models and decide for myself.
If you like your Pour-Over but don’t like the hassle of brewing with paper filters, may it be the fact that you have to keep buying them, or have to first clean them before brewing, there’s another way to do pour-over without the use paper filters.
You can use a paperless pour over coffee dripper if you’d like to get rid of paper filters. A Paperless (or No-filter) coffee dripper uses an ultra fine, mesh stainless steel filter instead of paper filters. You’ll add your coffee ground directly into the stainless steel filter and start your brewing process. Because the stainless steel filter is very fine, while the coffee ground is coarse, the coffee ground will not go through it, just like with paper filters.

How To Use Hario Paperless Dripper:
KitchenAid’s automated pour over coffee maker is one of the few SCAA (Specialty Coffee Association of America) certified coffee makers. This coffee maker gives you the flavorsome cup of coffee that a pour-over makes with the convenience of an automatic coffee maker.
Features of KitchenAid Pour Over Coffee Maker:
– Can I Brew Less Than a Full Carafe (8 Cups)?
Yes, you can. While other automatic pour over brewers only brew a full carafe, the KitchenAid brewer has a cup selector feature that allows you to select from 2, 4, 6 or 8 cups. So even if your water reservoir has 8 cup of water, the brewer will only brew your selected numbers of cups.
– Can I Get the Brewer with an Insulated Stainless Steel Carafe?
Unfortunately, it is only available with a glass carafe.
– Is It Programmable?
It is 24hr programmable with auto start.

Kalita Wave is one of many pour-over coffee brewers that is preferred by fans of specialty coffee and manual coffee brewing. Available in two sizes and three type of materials (Ceramic, Glass or Stainless Steel), Kalita Wave offers something for everyone.
What differentiates Kalita Wave than other pour-over drippers is its design. Unlike other drippers, the Wave is flat-bottomed, which gives you a more even extraction of coffee. It also uses a specially designed paper filter that reduces the contact between the brewing space and the dripper, giving you a fuller flavor.
As we mentioned, the Kalita Wave dripper is available in three different types: ceramic, stainless steel and glass. Is there a difference between these three materials?
When it comes to performance and how they brew, all three models work exactly the same.

Kalita labels its sizes with #155 and #185. The #155 is suitable for 1 to 2 cups, while the #185 is suitable for 3 to 4 cups.
Kalita Wave vs. Hario V60:
The Hario V60 is the most popular pour-over dripper out there. It’s been available for ages (probably why it’s the most popular), and has been tested, tried and loved by many. How is it different than the Kalita Wave?
Serving Coffee Using Kalita Wave or Hario V60:
Both drippers fit over standard mugs and can brew directly into your cup. If you’re brewing for more than one cup, it is recommended that you brew over a serving pot, which is available for both Hario V60 and Kalita Wave (sold separately by each brand).
Kalita Wave vs. Clever Dripper:
Clever Dripper is actually slightly different than other Pour-over drippers, including Wave and Hario V60. It combines two methods of brewing: pour-over and immersion.
As a fan of pour-over, you probably know the importance of using a goose neck kettle to pour water in your brewing process. It allows for a better distribution of water over the dripper and results in an even extraction.
The question is, is there a difference between Kalita’s Wave Kettle and Hario’s?

Kalita Wave vs. Hario V60 vs. Chemex:
Many people seem to believe that all pour-over coffee makers results in the same coffee brew. That’s not true. The design of the coffee pot will actually affect how it taste, and that’s what we’re here to talk about in this post. We’re comparing the relatively new Bodum’s Pour-over to the most popular pour-over maker out there, the holy Chemex.
Bodum Pour Over Coffee Maker:
Bodum is known for its beautiful design and aesthetics. This is true to everything they create, including their pour-over coffee maker:

How To Use a Chemex Pour Over:
The majority of pour-over lovers swear by Chemex, and we cannot disagree. Chemex does produce an aromatic and crisp cup of coffee. But that doesn’t mean that the Bodum isn’t a good one, it’s just newer to the scene.
Many people search for a stainless steel coffee maker that doesn’t include any plastic parts, worrying about hot water coming in contact with those plastic parts might lead to an undesirable taste.
When searching for the term stainless steel coffee maker, you’ll probably come across two things:
Here’s an example of a full stainless steel coffee maker:
The KRUPS KT600 Silver Art Collection: a full stainless steel body 10-cup coffee maker with stainless steel thermal carafe (which you can learn more about here).
Before you get too excited, this machine, and probably all machines, still have plastic interiors. Truth is, there are NO drip coffee makers that contain no plastic parts at all. So, what do you do if you want to produce coffee without using any plastic parts? You have a few options….
Quick note: We get many emails telling us that some of the products recommended by us do contain plastic (as obvious from the photos). Well, yes, some products may contain plastic parts on their EXTERIOR. The plastic does NOT come in contact with hot water or coffee on the inside of the coffee maker, and that’s why we’ve qualified them as plastic-free coffee makers.
You can use a stovetop moka/coffee maker. They’re all stainless steel, no plastic parts at all. But of course, it’s pretty manual and no fancy features. See our favorite stainless steel stovetop coffee makers here.
Use a French press. It’s also very manual, but easy and quick to use. And most importantly, no plastic parts! Click here to see the best french press pots you can buy.
You can use a stainless steel coffee percolator which has no plastic parts in its interior at all (some plastic parts out the exterior). There’s an electric or stovetop option, it’s nice and quick, although the method itself is old, the new percolators have been updated to meet a modern user’s expectations.
A Chemex glass coffee maker, which is a manual drip coffee maker. Click here to learn more about the one pictured above.
Or you can use a ceramic drip pour-over coffee maker. Click here to learn more about the Hario ceramic dripper pictured above.
A Syphon Vacuum coffee maker is also an option, but requires some expertise.
As you can see, if you’d like your coffee without the use of plastic, you’ll have to go back to basics. We highly recommend a Hario Dripper or a French press as a fast and easy way to make delicious coffee, followed by the stovetop coffee maker and the percolators.
As we’ve already recommended french press as an alternative coffee brewing method, most press pots are made of glass with plastic exterior. Although that does not affect the taste of the coffee as the plastic does not come in contact with it, many people would still prefer that their pot does not include any plastic at all.
