It has little space and concentrated extraction. Compared with Cone Shape / other flat bottom dripper, it is difficult to brew more than 20g of coffee (not for more than two people), you’ll need to use 185.

With Flower Dripper we sometimes go to 25g, or even 30g, especially for darker roast coffee, we will use a higher ratio of powder to water.

Since it is small and concentrated, it can easily overflow, so be careful when pouring. This either limits the brewing time, or it excludes other brewing methods and possibilities.

No doubt, it's not too difficult to brew a good, balanced coffee.

In my personal opinion, for a more acidic, or a coffee with a special flavour, this dripper will not give a lot of flexibility.
