I prefer the pour over method for making coffee.
Melitta® Thermal Stainless 8-Cup Pour-Over Coffeemaker
Pour Over brewing takes a bit of time and manual work. It does not use electric like the automatic drip coffee makers.
If you have the time and like the fun, you'll enjoy the rich taste and flavors of the pourover coffee. It allows you full control over the brew.
Personally, I like to brew coffee with a filter-cone, but have to confess that it is in fact a bit tedious and can make a little mess if you are not careful enough. When I don't have the time, I just turn on my auto drip and have it make the coffee for me. Of course, when I do make coffee with pour over coffee makers I really like the delicious taste and temperature of the coffee.
Pour Over Brewer Advantages
The pourover coffee maker method is good because...
It makes great-tasting, rich-flavored coffee.
It allows you full control over the coffee brewing.
It has a small footprint.
It is affordable.
It spares the problems common with electric coffee makers (spills, malfunctions and more).
Clean up is easy, unlike the mess left by another rich-flavored coffee maker - French Press coffee maker.
You can also use regular grind, instead of the coarser grind rather recommended for French Press coffeemakers.
It eliminates bitterness of the coffee.
It does not require a power connection.
It makes really hot coffee, brewed by a kettle, unlike many electric coffeemakers that brew at lower temperatures. The higher temperatures are good for both more flavor extraction of the coffee beans, and simply serving a hot cup of coffee.
One drawback is that the coffee will cool soon if you don’t drink it right after brewing as it doesn’t have a hot plate to keep it warm, unless you put the unused coffee immediately in a thermos to keep its heat.
