No-bypass brewing is gaining popularity lately. A lot of no-bypass brewers are being released. Tricolate, LVL-10, Hario Mugen, Orea (with the negotiator), etc.
The latest generation of no-bypass brewers, like the Next Level Pulsar, also combines a variable flow-rate valve into the mix.
Pulsar is impossible to buy around here right now, and I do have some reservations in purchasing one (higher minimum recommended amount of coffee required, proprietary filter size, etc). But I’m still intrigued by the overall idea of combining immersion, no-bypass, and low agitation brew.
I happen to own Hario Switch, Hario Mugen, and also the Melodrip. So I thought, why not leverage what I already have? 🙂
I really like my Orea v3, but discussions about plastic related health risks kinda flared up again in my social circle. It made me look for non-plastic alternative to the Orea v3, even though I know that the clear version of Orea v3 is supposed to be BPA-free.
One day I found out about the Brewista Next Wave Duo dripper. Long story short, I bought it, it arrived yesterday, and I just had the chance to brew with it this morning.
TL;DR I only very recently realized that Kalita wave filter is basically just a pre-shaped circular flat filter. You can flatten it first, then use the negotiator to help fold it the same way as the Sibarist Orea filter.
I’ve been experimenting a lot with different filters and the Orea v3. I’ve tried using v60 filters, Kalita wave filters, and even AeroPress filters.
I’m really interested in using negotiated circular flat filter, like the ones that Sibarist, and Orea themselves sell. They’re super expensive here though.
I wasn’t planning to buy the Orea v3. Orea products are pretty hard to come by around here. Even if they’re available, it’s usually with a pretty significant markup. A few days ago, I saw a secondhand Orea v3 for sale. It looked well taken care of by the owner. It wasn’t cheap, but all things considered, also not overly expensive. Fear of missing out struck me and I immediately bought it.
I bought the brewer, but I forgot to buy the wave filter and the negotiator until a couple of days later. So when the brewer arrived, I thought I couldn’t immediately brew coffee with it.
I got impatient and wondered if I can fold a v60 paper filter and fit it in into the Orea v3 by hand without using the 3D printed negotiator tool.
Saya baru tahu kalau ada tipe termos yang bagian dalam-nya terbuat dari kaca, bukan stainless steel.
Sejak tahun lalu saya jadi suka bikin kopi sendiri di rumah. Jika sedang kerja di rumah, sebenarnya saya ingin bisa bikin batch kopi yang lebih banyak di pagi hari lalu dimasukkan ke termos agar tetap panas selama beberapa jam. Minimal sampai setelah jam makan siang, karena biasanya setelah makan siang saya ngantuk banget hehe.
Tetapi selama ini saya kurang tertarik melakukannya karena saya kira bagian dalam semua termos terbuat dari stainless steel saja. Saya pribadi lebih suka jika wadah untuk kopi yang sudah diseduh itu terbuat dari kaca, porselain, atau keramik.
