The Clever Dripper successfully combines the good things about a full-immersion brewing device like the French Press with the cleaner profile of paper filter brewing. The Clever is aptly named – a stop-plug at the bottom of the dripper allows you to control the duration of steeping time. It remains sealed until the dripper is placed atop a mug, which releases the plug and decants the brew directly into your drinking vessel. In the cup, the result is a full, even extraction with a heavy body and mouth feel. Similar to a French Press profile, but without the silt.
