The OXO’s perfect design with strategically placed drip holes administers hot water like a gentle rain over the grounds for premium extraction, ensuring your coffee will be the best it can be.

The pour over coffee brewing process has never been made easier. The dripper cone’s thoughtful design fits securely over most coffee mugs. All you need is a standard #2 cone filter, the pour over, your favorite scoop of coffee, and 6-12 ounces of hot water and a kettle for a great cup of joe! Let the auto tank do the hard stuff!

The markings on the side allow you to measure exactly the amount of water right for you and your custom cup of java! The OXO Good Grips brewer controls the water flow with an eight-hole pattern and dripper walls that are ribbed to enhance liquid movement and disburses water to the grounds which regulates saturation for exactly the right brew time for a perfectly balanced abstraction of java goodness.

Performance

oxo close upDuring our review, the OXO Pour Over gives us a stimulating, and complex cup of fresh coffee every time. Our favorite part? It is quick and easy to use. The major advantage over other pour over type coffee makers or even the common plunger type single cup coffee maker, is that no lost grounds should ever make it into your cup, while at the same time offering nearly hands free premium saturation and extraction of joe for a great cup of coffee!

Why listen to us, ask yourself… what does it take to brew a truly great cup of coffee? The simple answer is fresh gourmet grounds, hot water and a good filter. The truth is… you must be a little more precise. The water must be at the right temperature, an even saturation of the grounds is required, and the correct brewing time are all essential to really making a great cup of coffee. If any of these factors are not right your cup of joe will be bitter and out of balance. However, when these factors come together the result is one sexy cup of joe!

Why is the OXO Good Grips Pour Over Coffee Maker easy to use? For starters, there is the durable plastic water tank, simply pour boiling water straight from your screaming kettle into the reservoir to the mark of the desired amount. Relax as the Good Grips gently rains water over your fresh bed of coffee grounds in the dripper chamber and blankets them with exactly the right rate of flow, which is controlled by precisely measured and spaced drip holes in the bottom of the tank. Breathe easy while the ribbed dripper walls optimize the flow of hot delicious mountain java into you’re your favorite mug.

Finally, the easy clean-up after the brew. Pull off the lid of the tank and set the whole unit down onto that lid which is now your drip tray, no messy counters to clean. Then the OXO single cup pour over brakes down to three easy pieces. Just rinse and put it in the dish washer. It practically cleans itself! Enjoy your rich empowering cup of coffee; you deserve it!
