Flat bottom Challenge - Day 3 (April Pour Over Brewer)
In terms of appearance, I think this is very similar to the tea set that I saw as a kid in China. Of course, this ceramic server is much larger than an average tea cup. If I didn't remember wrongly, the ceramic server and filter paper are also made in China. Maybe that’s why it reminds me of that!
The entire collection, designed by seraxbelgium, has a clean, simple look without losing its attractiveness. You can imagine how it creates a particularly warm, comfortable feel for brewing and enjoying coffee.
But frankly speaking, when I got my hands on it, the touching and fineness were not as perfect as those made in Japan and Taiwan. It's worth mentioning that it has a slight skew problem at the bottom. Maybe that is because there is a slight difference in each pottery?
I have had this dripper for a long time, but I did not use it much because I haven't found a suitable filter paper yet.
It's not as steep as Kalita/Orea/Simplify. Its extraction space is not concentrated, and its brewing method is close to immersion, with quick water injection, long soaking, and fine grinding. The overall taste is lighter than the general flat bottom dripper. On the palate it is bright and tangy, with a very clear and clean flavour. I had a taste of Mango gummies today.
We notice that the filter paper drips slower and slower in the latter stage, and basically there is no way to dry it. I tried to use mostly the parameters they provide, including K-plus.
Any suggestions for that?
