How to use a Clever Coffee Dripper

The Clever Dripper is an immersion drip device. It combines aspects of a french press and a pour over. It is much easier to use and more consistent than a pour over, while providing a cleaner flavor profile than a french press. This is our recommendation for making single serving coffee.


Grind roughly 20 grams of coffee on medium coarseness while bringing water to a boil.
  1. Place a filter in the Clever and pour hot water into it to preheat it as well as minimize the flavor of the paper. Then use this water to preheat a cup.
  2. Pour 375 grams (13 oz.) of hot water at around 200 degrees, saturating the grounds within the filter.
  3. Cover and let steep 3-4 minutes.
  4. Give a gentle stir and then place the Clever onto a cup to drain.
  5. Drink up!

We suggest that you adjust the grind, the dose, and the extraction time in order to suit your tastes and the environment.
