  1. Hi Clear clever coffee dripper, 300ml. Bought in September from Hasbean but upgrading to the larger one. Used a handful of times, unfortunately no box, but do have the order receipt if required. Comes with some small filters. £13 + postage Thanks Nik
  2. Hey, Some people may remember me from a few years back. I had to take a break from here and coffee in general but have finally been given the green light to get back into the saddle so to speak so here I am. For those who don't know me, I'm female and live in the North East. I love coffee, have learnt loads from here and the guys at Hasbean and am looking forward to learning more. Current setup is Gaggia Classic with Eureka Mignon, CCD, Aeropress, V60, Chemex, French Press. I'm saving for a Slayer and Mazzer combo! Hope to get chatting soon and see some familiar names!
  3. My Nephew is taking a bit of interest in coffee and I'm trying to find a fairly straight forward Christmas gift for him that's low maintenance and that he could possibly take to work for approx £20-£25. I was thinking of a Clever Coffee Dripper, and I could box up one of my spare older grinders to go with it, plus filters and a bag of beans. Hopefully this would be a good avenue into good brewed coffee. He still drinks milk with coffee which is my only concern, but the only other option I can think of is a Moka Pot which is a whole different ball game. Any other suggestions?
  4. Hi, I'm fairly new to the forum, but have taken a lot of great info from it. my coffee work is really poor and recently started using a small French press with fresh beans, but I've not really been impressed with the result and was wondering if another brewing method would provide better results. I have been looking at the v60 and CCD? What would you recommend, or should I just stick with my French press?

    CCD Recipe

    My first brew with the Clever Coffee Dripper was quite nice, but lacked some body. I used 20g of coffee (quite coarse) and 300ml of water, with a temperature of 92c, then left for 3:00. Do you recommend brewing for a longer period of time?
  6. Just opened the CCD I got for Xmas. Hmm I don’t like it so far. It’s taking me about ten mintutes for all the water to drain out of the vessel and I always end with a bit of residual water left. I am using my Hausgrind at 1,8 and tried the recommended FP grind of 2,0 as per MBK website still the same. Also using the filtropa paper size 4. The recipe is standard on the box: 20g coffee Ethiopian Modern Standard from Sainsbury’s 300g water steep for 4 or 5mins I watched some videos on YouTube with 1min drains :0 Anybody got any advice is this a common thing with CCD?
  7. I have not seen much on these forums about the CCD (Clever Coffee Dripper) but just thought i would post my experiences here. Price: £15-20 available from all your usual I was looking for a good solution for work as i work a night shift on my own and can't bring myself to drink the coffee from the machine at work. I already have a Porlex hand grinder and an aeropress but i couldn't get consistenly good results from my aeropress. There are so many varying techniques and sometimes my coffee was too bright or tasted a little over/under extracted so i thought why not try the CCD as i had heard good things about it. Bottom line, i love this thing! It produces a consistently good cup every time. Bascially it is like your standard filter cones (V60 etc) except that it a one way valve on the bottom that is only activated when you place it on top of a cup. This means you get the benefits of a full immersion brew (like a french press) with the benefits of a filter coffee (no sludge in the cup). Here is how I have been brewing with the CCD: - Filtropa Size 4 popped into the CCD and rinsed with hot water - 20g of coffee ground almost as course as french press - 330g of water - Stir after 30 seconds to get rid of crust - Brew for 3 minutes - Place on cup - Drink! It is also very easy to clean like other filters. Just remove the paper filter and throw in the bin. Then the CCD just needs a quick rinse out. TOP TIP: Some people have complained about stress cracks on the CCS after only a few months. This I believe is because of running cold water to rinse it out and the plastic going from super hot to cold very quickly. So rinse out your CCD with the left over water in the kettle and you should be fine! This is so simple to use it makes a great cuppa. And it is super easy to adjust to your tastes. You can increase brew time or grind size for simple and noticable results. For example I have been making the grind size a little bit finer to get more flavour from the coffee without over-extraction. In the cup it has more body than the aeropress but still retains a good clarity. I love thick gloopy espresso and often find brewed coffee too thin for my liking but this is the best of both worlds for me. If you want a super geeky cup where you need to experiment with inverted aerial pouring techniques from your hario poruing kettle or some kind of OCD obsessive stirring technique at 36 seconds and 110 seconds with a counter clockwise spin then the CCD probably isn't for you! But if you need a method that is super easy to do and produces consistently good results then the CCD is right up your street! 9/10 from me! ps....just realised i posted this in Brewed Forum, it it should be in Machines/Grinders/Accessories then Mods please move!
