An elegant and charismatically imperfect carafe. The dots are genius. Pours well. The heat retention is what you’d expect from a jug with a non-airtight lid; pre-heat with hot tap water followed by a slug of very hot water from the kettle for better results.
Hario’s plastic and ceramic filter baskets both fit on top of it, despite their different base-ring diameters. I stick with the plastic one for fear of ham-handedly chipping the carafe’s rim with the porcelain version.
I love seeing this thing on my kitchen counter every morning . If it were just a bit smaller, it’d suit the thermal mass of my languorous morning three-cup ritual perfectly, and I’d buy three of them.
Love everything about this carafe, goes perfectly with my Stagg tasting glasses. Great set for more than just coffee. Bonus: it fits my SAI phoenix 70 brewer perfectly.
Good-looking and practical
